Afternoon Delight: Angelina Jolie writes about her double mastectomy, Ellen roasts Steve Harvey

 
 

Good afternoon my lovelies!

Happy birthday to Amber Tamblyn, Sofia Coppola, Cate Blanchett, Miranda
Cosgrove
and out rapper Melange Lavonne!

Angelina Jolie underwent a double mastectomy to lower her chances of
getting breast cancer. Her own mother died of cancer at the
young age of 56. Jolie wrote a powerful article for the New York
Times
describing her entire ordeal and encouraging women to prioritize
their health. I’m sending Jolie lots of healing thoughts.

Yesterday Ellen DeGeneres roasted Steve Harvey as he received his star
on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. E! has DeGeneres’s entire
congratulatory speech
which started off with, “When they asked me to
come and do this today, I didn’t have to think—I said yes right away,
then I realized that I wasn’t getting paid and I tried to back out,
but I couldn’t, it was too late. So I’m here.”

Here’s a first look at Jane Lynch as Miss Hannigan. (I would totally
wear that dress.) You can see Lynch in Broadway revival of Annie
starting May 16.

The paparazzi snagged more photos of Anna Paquin and her twins out and about in California.

Olivia Wilde has signed on to star in the horror film The Reawakening.

Christina “XTina” Aguilera is reclaiming her judge’s swivel chair on
NBC’s The Voice
. Aguilera will be returning to the show’s fifth season.

Michael Douglas looks purty on the cover of New York magazine. I can’t wait to see Douglas and Matt Damon get it on in HBO’s Behind the Candelabra.

Bisexual actress/comedian Nicol Paone (The Big Gay Sketch Show, 30
Rock
) posted this little gem on her Facebook page with the caption,
“Born to play a cop am I right ladies and an occasional gentleman?
#stevietv”

I was really annoyed this morning when I received an email from my
favorite candle maker
Yankee Candles promoting their new “Man Candle”
scents
. The new smells are intended for Father’s Day gifts but us
ladies also like the aromas of “Riding Mower,” “First Down,” and “MMM,
Bacon!” Well, not me specifically because I’m a vegetarian. (Dear
Yankee Candle, Please stick to gender-neutral scents. Love, Bridget.)

Lea Michele was pretty in pink during yesterday’s FOX 2013 Programming
Presentation Post-Party in New York.

Tonight at 8 p.m. a new season of So You Think You Can Dance premieres on
Fox. I’m crossing my fingers that at least one out dancer makes it
into the top 20.

Lesbian comedian Erin Foley takes the stage tonight at 8 p.m. at Akbar in

Speaking of lesbian comedians, Wanda Sykes will appear on this
