Becoming Fran

She’s well known as the nasal-voiced star of hit 90′s sitcom, The Nanny.fl_fran-story

But Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress, screenwriter, producer, and comedian Fran Drescher has been putting her star power to work to help others ever since then.

In 2000, after two years of symptoms and eight misdiagnoses, Fran entered the hospital for what was determined to be uterine cancer.  The disease had progressed so far that Fran underwent a radical hysterectomy.  She wrote about her experience in her book, Cancer Shmancer.

Seven years after her surgery, Drescher announced the launch of the Cancer Schmancer Movement, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that all women’s cancers be diagnosed while in Stage 1, the stage when cancer is most curable.  Since then she has worked tirelessly as a healthcare advocate, raising gynecologic cancer awareness in Washington, and has received several awards for her efforts.

fl_csYesterday, The Stupid Cancer Show on BlogTalkRadio, the voice of young cancer, welcomed comedian and activist Fran Drescher for an interview to discuss life as a cancer survivor, the Cancer Schmancer Movement’s recent work, and how you can get involved.  Listen to the inspiring chat here.

Nicholle Tom

Nicholle Tom

You remember her as adorable teen Maggie Sheffield on The Nanny and Ryce Newton in the Beethoven flicks.

But now she’s all grown up – and dating an up-and-coming Hollywood hunk!

Paul McCarthy-Boyington

Earlier this week on Olivia Wilder Times, host Olivia Wilder was chatting with Nicholle Tom about the statuesque actress’ height when Nicholle mentioned her beau – who also stands 5-foot-7.

Intrigued, Olivia pressed Nicholle, 30, for a name and out it came: Paul McCarthy-Boyington.

TV fans know Paul from guest spots on such hit series as Alias, Crossing Jordan and The West Wing, but he’s also got a few feature films on the horizon.

Nice catch, Nicholle!
