Here’s what happened when one editor tried Sofia Vergara’s secret skincare weapon

Cancer is a touchy topic on The Real Housewives of Orange County, what with Vicki Gunvalson‘s ex-boyfriend Brooks Ayers spending a whole season forging cancer documents and covering up his lies in order to make the Orange County Housewives believed he was in treatment.
So it’s no surprise that 100th Housewife Peggy Sulahian’s cancer scare was met with some skepticism on Monday’s all-new episode, especially when she explained that she got her double mastectomy after her doctors found abnormal cancerous cells — something she had failed to mention before.
“They found something,” the 44-year-old reality star told a table of ladies including Shannon Beador, Meghan King Edmonds, Tamra Judge and Kelly Dodd during a night out. “They did a biopsy and then they found out that it was abnormal cells. And then they said, ‘We found three millimeters of some cancer.’ I get a call from them saying, ‘Come back. We found something.’ ”
The comments were confusing considering the mother of three had previously told her RHOC costars doctors “didn’t find anything.”
“I’m very confused,” Beador said. “I honestly don’t remember Peggy saying she had cancer. And now I’m hearing that they did find cancer. So I’m a little in the dark.”
“I retired,” King Edmonds, who had uncovered Ayers’ scheme, joked. “I don’t want to open another can of worms like I did with Brooks. Peggy’s being confusing in communicating her health history. You have cancer or you don’t have cancer, it’s very black and white. No more cancergate, please!”Lydia McLaughlin, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Meghan King Edmonds, Vicki Gunvalson, Peggy Sulahian, and Kelly DoddBravo Media/Tommy Garcia
But Sulahian was happy to clear things up, recounting that even though she had BRCA gene testing — which helps women know their chance of getting breast and ovarian cancer — produced negative results, her doctors still found small cells.
“We did the MRI, we did the biopsy, call back saying that it’s abnormal cells,” she said, her doctor explaining “it was a pre-invasive cancer, it was small” in flashbacks.
“Abnormal cells means it can turn into cancer — it will turn if you don’t. They don’t want to take a chance. We’re taking care of it. With that being said, I went into the physician’s office, and she said, ‘Your came back negative but three millimeter, we found cancer.”

Sulahian also addressed the issue in her BravoTV blog back in August.
“I want to clear up my cancer facts,” she wrote. “Over a span of ten years, I scheduled mammograms and MRI’s every six months, my doctor found a mass in my right breast in the MRI. The immediate response to this news, was to schedule a biopsy. Despite being negative on the BRCA gene testing, the biopsy revealed pre cancerous cells within my right breast. Few weeks later, we scheduled a surgery to remove the 25 mm of mass, and sent the mass to the pathologist. In a matter of weeks, I was told that of the 25 mm removed, 3mm of it was already cancer.”
Sulahian, whose mother died of breast cancer when Sulahian was just 21 years old, then made the tough decision to take precautionary measures of undergoing a bilateral mastectomy to avoid any future scares.
“My options were limited to 3 choices: chemo, radiation, or removal of my right breast,” she added. “To be the safest, I took the measure of removing both breasts instead of limiting myself to just one. I wanted to be as safe as possible, knowing that breast cancer runs in my family. Testing negative for the BRCA gene doesn’t guarantee the chance of not getting cancer. It’s a blessing that I caught the cancer before being aggressive.”

As of now, Sulahian — who will document the process of getting reconstructive surgery on the show — is “100% cancer free.”
“Please stay on top of your appointments in order to dodge this terrible disease,” she wrote. “I want to emphasize that testing negative on the BRCA gene does NOT guarantee being free of cancer. Putting your life in the hands of a reconstructive surgeon isn’t easy. It’s a long healing process mentally and physically, but completely worth not living the rest of your life in fear. I’m currently considering becoming active in the cancer communities, in order to offer my advice, hear more stories, and provide emotional support for women encountering the road block in their life.”

But on Monday’s episode, it looked like “the old LeeAnne” was back in full force when — frustrated over digs costar Cary Deuber had made about her plastic surgeon — Locken popped off and promised that Deuber’s words were going to get her “in big trouble.”
“Why is it so f—— important to Cary to come for me all the time?” Locken asked friend Brandi Redmond while waiting in the office of Dr. Robert True hours before having her breasts redone. “Because I’m gonna do something. She’s gonna come for me one day, and it isn’t gonna be pretty.”
“I didn’t grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth,” Locken continued. “I grew up with a lot of things in my hands, and they’re not knives, they’re just hands. But they work quite well.”
They were big threats to make to Deuber, who is a registered nurse and operative assistant to her plastic surgeon husband Mark. But Locken felt that Deuber had thrown the first punch by claiming Dr. True wasn’t board-certified as a plastic surgeon.
“He’s triple board-certified,” Locken said in defense of Dr. True. “He’s a board-certified OBGYN, a board-certified plastic surgeon and a board-certified hormone replacement specialist. He is a great guy even though Cary has issues with him. He handles all of my hormones. He does all of my botox.”
“I didn’t bring up surgery around her especially because I didn’t want her disrespecting my doctor. And what does she do? Disrespect my doctor,” Locked added to Redmond. “Do you remember when you had your ‘Mommy Makeover?’ How bad did she make you question the doctor? If it was just me it would be one thing but I remember you being so upset and freaked out and worried that you weren’t going to the right doctor. And did your surgery turn out okay? So what’s the f——- point? You can’t slam every doctor in town just because your husband is a doctor.”
Strangling wasn’t the only threat thrown Deuber’s way in Locken’s behind-closed-doors rant, though. The 50-year-old, newly engaged reality star also claimed Deuber’s husband Mark had been involved in sexual experiences with other men.
“Her husband gets his d— sucked at The Round-Up,” Locken said, naming a popular country-western gay bar and dance hall in Dallas. “I know the boys who did it.”
Her allegations about Mark were shocking, but it was the threat of strangling that left Redmond ultimately worried for her friend, Deuber.
“It’s not normal to sit there and threaten people’s lives,” she confessed to viewers before later claiming Locken “was spitting my face as she was saying it and her eyes were delusional.”
She then told Deuber about the threats, though she decided not to bring up the defamatory comments made about Mark.
“It’s none of my business, it’s nobody’s business,” Redmond explained. “It’s only going to hurt Cary if I start spreading it around. But threatening somebody’s life? It should be on our radar.”
Deuber, for her part, was at her wits end.
“I’m so sick of this. Seriously? Last year it’s how I got my husband, this year she’s going to strangle me?” Deuber lamented. “You don’t threaten people. … I felt like we were in a good place, and then she flipped out on me. What do you even say to someone who has called you all these crazy names?”
Mark was equally frustrated.
“Again with the threats? What the hell is wrong with this crazy woman?” he asked his wife. “I’d like you to avoid her. She has no conscience whatsoever.”
Still, Deuber vowed to remain calm.
“I definitely am sacred but I’m not going to give her the power of acting scared. The more you feed the dragon, the bigger it gets,” Deuber said. “And she has nothing to lose.”

In true Housewives fashion, Deuber and Locken found themselves together days later on a trip to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. And while they avoided one another, Locken did admit to regretting her words.
“I’ve gone out of my way to be nice to her. But honestly, she starts those snide little comments. I have a guttural reaction to her,” Locken said. “The truth is, I’m my own worst enemy. I create my own downfalls.”
Despite not hearing Locken’s allegations about her husband, Deuber has already clapped back at anyone who makes any comments about his sexual orientation.
“Let’s shut that down right now. It’s not cool. … Change your viewpoint,” she wrote on her BravoTV blog in August when Mark was nominated for a Dallas Culture Map Style Mker. “Listen, it is immeasurably ignorant to say someone is ‘gay’ because they like style or art. We all have plenty of friends WHO HAVE great fashion sense and plenty who don’t. It has nothing to do with sexual preference and is very offensive and small-minded to think that way (let alone spew it directly at people like it even matters). I am so proud of my stylishly savvy husband in everything that he does. … At the end of the day, the most important thing here is love.”

Why Wyclef Jean Stepped Out of the Spotlight: 'People Don't Understand When You Say It's Lonely at the Top'
by Janine Rubenstein @ PEOPLE.com
Mon Sep 25 17:05:45 PDT 2017
Gone Till November? Nope, Wyclef is back!
“Coming back into music is like drinking water, it’s a natural thing,” Jean, 47, tells PEOPLE. “It’s a space of belonging.”
But he didn’t always feel that way. Nearly a decade ago the former Fugees frontman and Shakira‘s “Hips Don’t Lie” collaborator decided to take a step back from the music scene. “It was like when John Lennon left The Beatles for a minute and he went to just try and find himself,” says Jean. “I don’t think people understand when you say ‘It’s lonely at the top.'”
The decision to take time off coincided with his highly publicized run for president of Haiti in 2010, following the earthquake that devastated his birth country. “Besides losing my father, the hardest thing I could have ever done was going into the space of politics,” he says. Not long after announcing his candidacy, Jean was deemed ineligible for office, due to his not residing in the country.
“It was really a dark space, but for me, within the course of history I had to sacrifice myself like that for my country. I don’t feel like I got defeated. I feel like even though they took me out of the race, the part that they don’t talk about is what was it that I was fighting for.” Says Jean, “Me running gave so much attention that today we have a younger government in the country. To know that I was part of that cycle change, to me was the most important.”
Despite the ordeal taking a toll on him, he says it was something he did for his country, and for himself.
“Through the years I’ve watched some of my peers have drug overdoses, I’ve lost certain people through suicide, just different things, so it really comes to a point in your life where you’ll be like, ‘Ok, you’re responsible for 100 million records but what have you really done as a person? Like what’s the purpose?'” says Jean.

As for the current political climate in America, he says he’ll never retire from trying to make a difference.
“These United States of America are what make me who I am and I have a serious love for the communities where I come from, like growing up in the projects, watching failed policies and seeing how I got out and thinking how can I help other kids get out,” says Jean. “As I get older wanting to do something is part of my DNA.”
But these days the musician, who lives in New Jersey with wife Claudinette, daughter Angelina and the family’s poodle, says he’s happy to get back to the music that started it all. Says Jean, “It feels like I haven’t missed a beat.”
