Judy Blume Is Battling Cancer

Judy blume cancer struggle

This is sad news: children's book author Judy Blume is battling cancer.

There really isn't much more we can say on this that isn't in her own words, but she announced it all on a blog post — including that she had a mastectomy.

Here's what she said:

"The biopsy report came back a few days later while I was with my (gynaecologist) in her office (a long standing appointment).

"It was good that I wasn't alone and that she, who has been my doctor for seventeen years, could explain it to me. Very early. Very small. Well differentiated. All good news. But it was invasive ductal carcinoma."

If you're going to have to get news like this, we suppose that this is the lesser of the evil options.

She continued:

"Now it's one month post surgery - I'm still in NY and feeling stronger every day, walking a couple of miles in the park each morning and going out to early dinners with George. Have seen movies and a couple of plays, as you know if you follow me on Twitter. I'm able to read again without falling asleep. Which doesn't mean I don't need a nap every day."

Glad to hear you're doing better, Judy!

Author Judy Blume's Grandson Arrested For Rape

Awful.

The 18-year-old grandson of teen literature and Summer Sisters author, Judy Blume, has been arrested for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl at his family's Martha's Vineyard estate.

He's pleaded not guilty, and has since posted bail of $5000.

Absolutely despicable and disgusting. When will people learn that no means no?

Our thoughts are with the girl and her family during this horrific and difficult time. Stay strong.

Jersey's Finest

Danny Devito, Jack Nicholson and Susan Sarandon are amongst Sunday's inductees into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.

The actors joined author Judy Blume, Frankie Valli and Bruce Springsteen for the event.

"He has Jersey attitude pouring out of him, even when he is standing still. (His) persona exemplifies what it means to be one of us," said The Boss about Devito.

The two then sang Glory Days in front of an audience that included Buzz Aldrin and Joe Pesci.

WTF?!

Even Jack was there - and it meant so much to him that he missed a Lakers game to attend!

"I could sing the praises of New Jersey all night," said Nicholson.

Past inductees include Springsteen, Toni Morrison and Harriet Tubman.

And coming soon…Snooki?!
