This is absolutely DISGUSTING!!!

Every once in a while, a story pops up about Transportation Security Administration (TSA) workers harassing travelers with extremely invasive practices — but a cancer patient?!

Over the weekend, Denise Albert — the cofounder of The MOMS, a "a multi-platform lifestyle brand" — was stopped by TSA employees at LAX in what she told Pix11 was a "horrific" experience!

The reason for the search was a medical cream Denise packed in her carry-on that the host carries as part of her cancer treatment! The shaken woman was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in 2015 and began chemo in February that year after having a lumpectomy.

As if getting patted down wasn't embarrassing enough, the agents were so strict they forced Denise to remove her wig and shoes — and she was barefoot for about 20 minutes!

Kurt Iswarienko isn't letting this one slide.

According to TMZ, Shannen Doherty's husband is filing ANOTHER lawsuit against the actress ex-managers. The news comes on the heels of Doherty settling her own legal battle against the employees of Tanner Mainstain Glynn & Johnson.

While Shannen won $15 million dollars from the company for causing her insurance to lapse, Iswarienko also wants to hold the managers accountable for the fallout following the 45-year-old's breast cancer diagnosis.

As we previously reported, Shannen claims her cancer could have been caught earlier if her insurance didn't expire. Given how late it was caught, it only makes sense the celeb would want to seek retribution for her rapid decline in health.

Per Kurt's lawsuit, he alleges his sex life with Doherty has been ruined due to the diagnosis. The concerned husband also believes the firm mishandled his money which caused his credit to be destroyed.

Well, it sounds like Iswarienko has a promising case!

We'll keep you updated as this cases progresses.
