Breast Cancer Survivor Christina Applegate Just Removed Her Ovaries and Fallopian Tubes

Nearly nine years after undergoing a double mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis, mom-of-one Christina Applegate underwent another surgery.

During an appearance on Today, the Bad Moms star, revealed that she had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

“Two weeks ago, I had my ovaries and [fallopian] tubes removed,” she shared. “My cousin passed away from ovarian cancer in 2008. I could prevent that. That’s how I’ve taken control of everything.”

She added: “It’s a relief. That’s one other thing off the table. Now, let’s hope I don’t get hit by a bus.”

The Married With Children star has the BRCA1 gene mutation, which predisposes her to developing cancer.

Admittedly, the Anchorman actress worries about her 6-year-old daughter Sadie.

“The chances that my daughter is BRCA positive are very high. I look at her and feed her the cleanest foods. I try to keep her stress levels down. I’m doing everything I can on my end knowing that in 20 years, she’ll have to start getting tested,” she shared. “Hopefully by then there will be advancements. It breaks my heart to think that’s a possibility.”

Parenting Goals: Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s Toddler Loves Louis Armstrong; Ella Fitzgerald

)

)

During a recent interview at CinemaCon in Las Vegas to talk about her latest projects, including a sequel to Bad Moms, Mila Kunis dished a bit about life as mom to two kids. She told E! News that her and hubby Ashton Kutcher‘s 2-year old daughter Wyatt loves her baby brother Dmitri.

“She loves her brother,” Mila gushed to E! News exclusively. “She wants him to sleep in her room and doesn’t get jealous or envious. She’s great. We got very lucky.”

While explaining that she can no longer handle too many drinks and that date nights have to end pretty early because they got babies, she also talked a bit about how busy Christmas is. The sequel to her last super hit show will be Bad Moms Christmas and will be released during the holidays.

It was most interesting to hear her say that she and hubby only gifted her daughter one gift, a plastic trumpet. First, she says because they know the family will spoil the children with toys so there is no need for the parents to pile on! Whoa! We totally agree with this one.

But second, and most interesting, is because her toddler loves jazz greats! What?

“She loves Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong so she always pretends to play the trumpet so we got her a little plastic trumpet,” she revealed. “That was her Christmas gift from us. The grandparents got her hundreds of gifts, hundreds, so that’s it.”

So great to learn she is exposing her child to non-pop music but also awesome that her daughter is actually developing a love and appreciation for them. Very cool! More reasons to love this couple!

We were already digging on them for getting simple wedding bands from Etsy  (supporting work-at-home mom artisans) and for Ashton’s groundbreaking work for child trafficking awareness, but also deciding to limit their children’s exposure to the public and letting them decide when they are old enough if they want to be public figures!

Oh yeah, and Wyatt speaks three languages already.

“She’s learning Russian,” Kutcher told  Late Night with Seth Meyers,  explaining that Mila’s family speaks Russian, so she gets plenty of exposure. “She has English down. She can like speak and understand English. She can speak and understand Spanish. And she can understand Russian, but she can’t really speak it yet.”

Yay, parents!

REVIEW: Bands of Moms Organized “Bad Moms” Movie Nights this Weekend

13892209_10210128684319589_1649939281767325378_n

This weekend, groups of mom friends across the nation gathered en masse to see the new Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell movie Bad Moms which also stars two other of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Jada Pinkett Smith and Christina Applegate.

(Moms’ Night Outings included this one and here and even here where someone rented out the entire theater)

The film is about Amy (Kunis), a suburban mom who is married to her college sweetheart, and has two great kids including entitled son Dylan (Emjay Anthony) and an overachieving soccer star daughter, Jane (Oona Laurence) who dreams of getting into an Ivy League school even while still in Middle School.  Amy  is also married to an immature real estate mortgager who is a parenting slacker and leaves Amy to do all the work at home even though she also works part time at a trendy coffee company owned and managed by millennials. At age 32, she is the oldest worker. Oy vey!

SEE TRAILER

As the film begins, Amy relays how she is overwhelmed, underappreciated and constantly late. (We can all relate, well I know I can) Amy has to also battle against meeting up to the high expectations and standards of a trio of perfect moms, led by the PTA President Gwendolyn(Applegate), the Queen B who runs the school, and her sidekick moms Stacy (Pinkett-Smith) and Vicky (Annie Mumolo).

Eventually, she just gives up on trying and befriends frazzled mousey stay-at-home mom KiKi (Bell) and single mom Carla (Kathryn Hahn), the break out star in the film and they cut up.

For a  few days, they sleep in, stop making the kids’ breakfast, skip work, go out to pubs and dance clubs and act out in a supermarket in the most hilarious scene of the film.

That scene is second only to (SPOILER ALERT) the one in a bathroom when Carla and KiKi preps Amy to start dating again after she and her husband take a break from her marriage and Carla uses Kiki to show Amy how to manage an uncircumcised man’s member. It is utter hilarity!

I too attended a Bad Moms outing my law school girlfriend Marcie organized. It included happy hour drinks before (which I missed but borrowed a photo from) and night of dancing at a local concert hall to an 80s cover band after. I’d dare say 98% of our theater was filled with women. There were probably several groups of mom groups out. There was lots of talking, popcorn throwing and cutting up in the theater before and the antics were aplenty.

We all agreed afterwards that we have to go see the movie again because we missed so many lines because we were laughing so hard throughout the film.

And what can you expect when the writer/director of The Hangover, Jon Lucas, was behind the film? There is plenty of raunchy and hypersexualized over-the-top slapstick humor that works and a very generous use of the F-bomb. It is rated R for a reason and you should definitely not think of taking your kids with you to see this.

Again, as I stated above, Hahn is the most memorable. Every line that comes out of her mouth elicited belly laughs. It’s because she doesn’t give a kitty about what others think, is sexually free and liberated and is that ride-or-die pal that has your back. She’s that friend from college who would hold back your pony tail while you hurl in the throne after a wild night out, but who has grown up and is now solo-parenting a 6 feet tall middle school jock kid.

Hahn steals ever scene she is in.

My girl Bell does a phenomenal job as a docile mom with a controlling husband who eventually grows some cohones and stands up to him by the end of the movie. She delivers some zingers that are effective because they are unexpected but delivered with perfect comedic timing.

The movie climaxes as Amy decides to compete with Gwendolyn for PTA President after Gwendolyn does something that negatively impacts Jane.

The movie is The Hangover meets Mean Girls.  It has the usual comedy movie tropes but it is successful.

I recommend you get your mom pals together and organize your own Bad Moms movie outing. The last time I attended a movie that got so many groups of women out was when Sex and The City movie came out. I wasn’t a fan of Fifty Shades so I missed all the Fifty Shades movie night outings.

But Bad Moms is definitely a must-see! Fun times!

Bump Watch: Mila Kunis Goes Brave in a Jumpsuit at NYC ‘Bad Moms’ Premiere

mila kunis

Actress Mila Kunis was legit giving me sultry chic mom when she walked the red carpet to the New York City premiere of her new movie Bad Moms at Mila at Metrograph on July 18, 2016.

The 2nd time mom-to-be, who met her actor and tech investor husband Ashton Kutcher while the two co-starred on the long running hit show That 70s Show, skipped a traditional dress and went bold in a black jumpsuit with embroidered trip and pink pumps. Traditionally, pregnant ladies who make frequent trips to the bathroom avoid something that requires a ton of work to put on and take off.

She swapped out her usual shoulder length dark hair with a bob that framed her face, smokey eye and pink lip. I wish there was more volume to her bob but overall, I love the look.

And on her wrist was the traditional red string bracelet that is commonly worn among followers of the ancient Jewish spiritual tradition, Kabbalah. This is the second child for the Kutchers. They are parents to 1-year old Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, born in October 2014.
