Jennifer Carpenter is treasuring her time with husband and “Dexter” co-star Michael C. Hall – especially in light of the news that the actor has been undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.
“He’s great,” Jennifer told AccessHollywood.com’s Laura “Dish of Salt” Saltman at Access’ 4th Annual “Stuff You Must” Golden Globes gift lounge at the Sofitel Hotel in LA. “Very lucky [he] caught it early – it’s 98 percent curable, so it’s basically choosing the treatment and sticking with it.”
Now, she said the star is on the road to a full recovery.
“After two rounds of treatment, he was in complete remission. He’s just finishing up to make sure it stays that way,” Jennifer said. “He wanted to let everybody know and he’s been receiving so much support and good thoughts. That’s been the kick that he needed to just finish it up.”
And she added that the illness has brought the couple — who play brother and sister on the hit Showtime series — closer together.
“It’s always felt like an opportunity to get closer and I’m just so impressed with him and anyone who’s had to go through it,” she said, becoming visibly emotional. “Every second’s special with him, it sounds corny but it’s true. I’m very lucky.”
Looking radiant, Tiffani Thiessen, best known for her role as Kelly in the 90′s US sitcom “Saved By The Bell”, looks around with her actor husband Brady Smith for baby accessories at the ‘Boom Boom Room’ baby event at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. Tiffani Thiessen is 5 months pregnant and said she cant wait to have it. She also said that they don’t know if the baby is a boy or girl and might just leave the finding out until its born.
One of The Golden Globes most memorable moments was Michael C. Hall’s victory in the Best Actor, TV Series Drama category for his wonderful work on “Dexter.” Not only was this win long overdue, but the timing was even sweeter following last week’s admission that Michael’s been receiving treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
However, at least one person in the Shrine Auditorium might have felt that sympathy factored in to Michael’s win, his category rival, Bill Paxton. I’m no lip reader, but it looks suspiciously like the “Big Love” loser says something about “the cancer card” when the camera cuts to him during Michael’s walk to the podium.
Here’s the video: Moment in question comes at 1:43. I’ve watched it like 5 times, and I SWEAR he says “the cancer card”. What a messed up thing to say!!!
