I know she’s not into pity parties, but poor Janice Dickinson…
In a video interview with DailyMail.com, the former model reveals that she feels like she’s living in a “nightmarish dream,” because she just revealed to the world that she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Here are some snippets from her interview, which make her sound kind of like a lifetime movie:
“It’s still quite shocking. You know, I’ve had plastic surgery and I’ve had breast implants and I’ve always been very vocal of what I’ve done, because I tell the truth about everything. As I am right now.”
She said she received the news about two weeks ago while out on a shopping trip with her 22-year-old daughter, Savannah – “I got the call and my doctor informed me that yes, it is indeed cancer,” she said.
Dickinson explained that her doctor found a pea-sized lump on her right breast that didn’t “feel right” during an early exam, and told her the growth needed to be checked out.
“I became fearful,” Dickinson said of that moment. “But not for myself. I was fearful for my two children. My fiancé, my loving fiancé Rocky.”
She described telling her son, Nathan, about the diagnosis.
“When I got the news, this was very, very difficult. My son called me and I had to tell my son the news. But when I heard my son choke, he said, ‘I haven’t cried in 20 years.’ I said, ‘me either.’ I wasn’t crying then either,” she said.
“It’s a proud moment to know that I’m so loved and so lucky. Today I got very scared … I just got scared. It hit me. It hit me.”
But don’t feel badly for the model. She says she’s determined to survive.
“I’m going to get through this. You betcha, kiddo,” she said. “And I’ll be just fine. This is not a pity party. I’m Janice Dickinson. I’m going to stick around for a long long time.”
Hey, If Janice says she’s sticking around, she’s probs gonna stick around. That woman is WILLFUL!
