Rita Wilson Battles Breast Cancer


Rita Wilson has some difficult and very personal news…

The actress was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and has undergone a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery to combat it. People reports that Wilson feels “blessed” to have the love and support of her husband, Tom Hanks, friends, family and the doctors who are committed to her health.

I have taken a leave from the play Fish in the Dark to deal with a personal health issue,” reveals Wilson, who will return to the Broadway play on May 5. “Last week, with my husband by my side, and with the love and support of family and friends, I underwent a bilateral mastectomy and reconstruction for breast cancer after a diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma. I am recovering and most importantly, expected to make a full recovery. Why? Because I caught this early, have excellent doctors and because I got a second opinion.

“I have had an underlying condition of LCIS, (lobular carcinoma in situ) which has been vigilantly monitored through yearly mammograms and breast MRIs. Recently, after two surgical breast biopsies, PLCIS (pleomorphic carcinoma in situ) was discovered. I mention this because there is much unknown about PLCIS and it is often found alongside DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ). I was relieved when the pathology showed no cancer.

“However, a friend who had had breast cancer suggested I get a second opinion on my pathology and my gut told me that was the thing to do. A different pathologist found invasive lobular carcinoma. His diagnosis of cancer was confirmed by, yet, another pathologist. I share this to educate others that a second opinion is critical to your health. You have nothing to lose if both opinions match up for the good, and everything to gain if something that was missed is found, which does happen. Early diagnosis is key.

“I feel blessed to have a loving, supportive husband, family, friends and doctors and that I am the beneficiary of advances in the field of breast cancer and reconstruction. I am getting better every day and look forward to renewed health.

“I hope this will encourage others to get a second opinion and to trust their instincts if something doesn’t ‘feel’ right.”

What an articulate and brave journey.  Let this be a lesson to you all- get a second opinion, have those docs you trust and use your support system around you as much as possible!

Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson Went Through A Rough Patch

Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson Went Through A Rough Patch

Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have been together since 1988, but recently they hit a bit of a rough patch. Twenty-six years is a long time — and it’s an eternity in the eyes of Hollywood — but a new report suggests that they split for about a month just to get some time away from one another.

“They hit a rough patch. They were leading separate lives,” a friend exclusively tells In Touch, revealing that for a month, Rita lived alone in their $26 million modern mansion in Pacific Palisades while her husband stayed at a producer pal’s home in tony Malibu Colony before leaving to film his new movie, A Hologram for the King, in Egypt.

“Although they attended social functions and walked their dog together,” a source says of the pair, “they were living in separate residences.”

According to the friend, “they just weren’t seeing eye to eye.” But the couple survived their temporary split by refusing to give up. “Tom and Rita are not just husband and wife, they are best friends. It will take a lot to split this couple up for good.”

At least they haven’t decided to split for good, right? Sometimes a person just needs some time away in order to miss the one they love. Let’s hope it’s just a hiccup and all is well within their marriage.

Strangest Emmy Accessory Award Goes To…

And the Strangest Emmy Accessory Award has to go to Rita Wilson’s shoes. What in the world was she thinking!? I would think that Rita Wilson certainly tops most of the Worst-Dressed lists today. I just don’t understand this ensemble!

The actress and producer, 53, wore a white Prada dress draped with crystals. And those shoes! Those lucite-looking shoes are atrocious! They are apparently heels from Miuccia Prada’s Spring 2010 runway collection.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been married since 1988. Last night Tom picked up the Emmy for Outstanding Mini-Series for The Pacific, which he produced.
