Scoop: Christina is healthy and cancer-free

Good news! Christina Applegate is free of breast cancer, after opting for a double mastectomy about three weeks ago.

“I’m clear,” the “Samantha Who?” star declared on “Good Morning America” Tuesday. “Absolutely 100 percent clear and clean. It did not spread. They got everything out, so I’m definitely not going to die from breast cancer.”

Although the cancer was only detected in one breast, the actress, whose mother also survived the disease, explains: “My decision, after looking at all the treatment plans that were possibilities for me, the only one that seemed the most logical and the one that was going to work for me was to have a bilateral mastectomy. So basically I had a prophylactic double mastectomy.”

At first when she received the diagnosis, the plucky actress confesses, “I was so pissed off, so mad … I was just shaking.” But, she adds, “immediately I had to go into take-care-of-business mode.” 

And through it all, Christina has maintained her sense of humor: Discussing her upcoming reconstructive surgery, she declares, “I’m gonna have cute boobs till I’m 90!” Love this brave, open girl.

Back On?

Is Kate Hudson trying to win back Owen Wilson? After the on-off couple split for the second time, the “Fool’s Gold” star had a fling with his buddy, Lance Armstrong. But now that that romance has fizzled, according to Star, the actress is blowing up her ex-beau’s cell phone — and he’s taking her calls.

The funnyman “was frosty at first,” an inside source told the tabloid.

“He felt betrayed when she dumped him for his friend Lance.”

“But after a while,” the insider went on, Owen “caved in and has been sweet to her.”

Given the “Wedding Crashers” star’s turbulent recent history — he reportedly attempted suicide in 2007, after his first breakup with Kate — some pals are reportedly worried that the third time won’t be the charm.

“It’s not fair to Owen, because he really cares for her and ends up getting hurt,” a pal says.

Yeah, but in the meantime, he gets to date Kate Hudson. So, you know, it’s a trade-off.

Supportive Pink

Separated spouses Pink and Carey Hart have freely admitted they still care for each other deeply — and haven’t ruled out the possibility of getting back together.

That bond was evident Friday night at a memorial service for Carey’s brother Anthony, who recently died in a motorcycle crash. Pink took the stage at Las Vegas’ Wasted Space (a bar Carey owns) to perform two songs for her late brother-in-law, People reports. For the second tune, her estranged hubby took the stage with her to toast Anthony.

The tragedy may even have rekindled the couple’s romance: TMZ sources remarked on how affectionate they were. Perhaps they’re just supporting each other in a time of grief — or perhaps they’ve realized life’s too short not to be with the one you love.
