The actress tweeted, "1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one. The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring friends, and fantastic insurance through my union."

"The bad news is that not all women are so lucky. So let's fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality."

Veep co-star Tony Hale: "We love this woman."

Preggers or Not, Khloe Kardashian Works Hard for Her Brand


Khloe Kardashian may be pregnant with her first child, but that doesn't mean she's going to stop posting photos to sell her wares.

On Thursday, just days after the news broke that she is pregnant with NBA baller Tristan Thompson's child, Khloe took to Instgram to post a sexy photo of her seated, legs spread and wearing pumps. She certainly doesn't look like a woman expecting a child anytime soon. And, of course, there was a commercial motivation for the post. Khloe captioned the snap, (quote) "Our @goodamerican Chunky Zip bodysuit just dropped in black and red and inclusive size range."

No word if that (quote) "inclusive size range" makes it appropriate for maternity wear. (People)


TOM HANKS: David S. Pumpkins Animated Special Announced


David S. Pumpkins is going from an SNL sketch to an animated special.

Tom Hanks will lend his voice to the half-hour Halloween special, which will air October 28th at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.

This is the official synopsis from NBC: “Set in a small suburban town on All Hallows’ Eve, the special centers on David Pumpkins and his skeleton sidekicks who show a young boy and his sister the true meaning of Halloween, answering none of their questions along the way.”

Hanks debuted the bizarre, pumpkin-suit-wearing character when he hosted SNL last October.  

Mikey Day and Bobby Moynihan, who wrote the first sketch, as well as Peter Dinklagewill also voice characters.

 

MEGHAN TRAINOR: It's All About TV


Meghan Trainor is ready for prime-time -- she'll produce and write songs for a new ABC show about an up-and-coming girl band.

Meghan's team is putting together a pilot for Broken Record, which follows the ups and downs of an all-female group called The Candies, who decide to reunite a decade after their breakup, thanks to a tragic event that brings them back together as friends.

There's no word yet on an air date, or whether Meghan will make an on-screen appearance. (Hollywood Reporter)


CHER: Musical Firms Broadway Plans


The Cher Show has found a Broadway home. The musical about the iconic diva will take over Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre in the fall of 2018.

The public will first get their first chance to see it beginning June 12th at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago.

Playwright Rick Elise tells the New York Times the show "isn't linear" in the way traditional bio-musicals such as Jersey Boys and Gloria Estefan's On Your Feet are. It is "entirely psychological -- it takes place in her psychological closet, and in that closet is everything she’s ever been in her life -- everything she has ever played, every song she’s sung, everyone she’s been married to, every pair of shoes she’s worn, every success and every failure."

Casting for The Cher Show isn't finalized -- we hear three actresses will play Cher at different points in her life -- but the creative team promises 35 to 40 of her best-known songs.


BONUS VIDEO


Maroon 5 have teamed up with up-and-coming female rapper SZA [pr: SIZ-uh] for what might be their steamiest video yet -- a sexy romp through the chart-scaling "What Lovers Do."
