Caitlyn Jenner has ‘sun damage’ removed from nose, warns fans to practice sun safety

Years of being in the sun has taken a toll on Caitlyn Jenner’s skin.

She recently posted on Instagram that she had what she called “sun damage” removed from her nose, US Magazine reported.

Jenner also reminded her followers to wear sunblock. The warning accompanied a photo of Jenner with a red nose where skin had been removed.

People Magazine reported that it was a cancerous basal cell carcinoma which was removed.

Jenner’s stepdaughter, Khloé Kardashian, also had a skin cancer scare in 2016. “There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had 8 inches of skin removed,” US reported that Kardashian wrote on her website. “It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time the removals hadn’t been that bad.”

Doctors remind everyone that they should use sunscreen when outside, People Magazine reported.

Warning signs of basal cell carcinoma

According to, there are five warning signs for basal cell carcinoma. 

  • Open sore that bleeds or crusts for a few weeks, then heals, then repeats.
  • Red patch on face, chest, shoulder, arms or legs that can itch or hurt at times.
  • Shiny bump or nodule that is pearly or clear. It can also be tan, black or brown and could be confused with a mole.
  • Pink growth with a slightly elevated rolled border. It could also have a crusted dent in the center.
  • Scar-like white, yellow or waxy area. It could be a warning of an invasive basal cell carcinoma that’s larger than than the surface area.

According to, there are multiple types of treatments for basal cell carcinoma:

  • Curettage, Electrodesiccation: The growth is scraped off with a curette and the tumor is burned with an electrified needle.
  • Mohs micrographic surgery: Doctors remove a thin layer of tissue that contains the tumor and it is repeated until the spot is cancer-free.
  • Excisional surgery: Doctors remove the entire growth and the surrounding tissue.
  • Radiation: X-rays are sent through the tumor.
  • Cryosurgery: The tumor is frozen with liquid nitrogen and the area blisters or crusts then falls off. 
  • Photodynamic Therapy: Doctors use blue light and a topical lotion on the lesion.
  • Laser Surgery: Lasers destroy the lesions either by removing the skin’s top layer or by targeting under the skin. 
  • Topical medications: Medications like Imiquimod or 5-Fluorouracil are able to treat specific basal cell carcinoma.
  • Oral medications: Vismodegib and sonidegib are given to patients with advanced basal cell carcinomas.

Jimmy Kimmel brings Katie Couric to his colonoscopy

Jimmy Kimmel's audience got to see more of the host than usual when he had his first colonoscopy.

The talk show host brought Katie Couric along for the test, which aired on Tuesday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live." She was with him before and after the examination.

Kimmel turned 50 in November, which is the age the American Cancer Society recommends for the colorectal cancer screening.

The exam found no sign of polyps. But Couric joked with Kimmel that keys, toy soldiers and a harmonica were recovered.

Couric's late husband died of the disease in 1998. She had the screening done on TV in 2007.

March is colon cancer awareness month.

Nazi-looted portrait returned to heirs, will be auctioned

For nearly 80 years, the trail was stone cold for a missing 16th-century Renaissance portrait, looted by the Nazis from an estate in the Netherlands.

But late last year, Christie's auction house was contacted about its potential whereabouts, and the prized painting was returned to the Los Angeles heir of its owners. It will go on sale next month in New York.

The painting, a portrait by the German artist Lucas Cranach the Elder, had belonged to Fritz Gutmann, who owned a large collection on his estate in the Netherlands. Gutmann and his wife were killed in the Theresienstadt and Auschwitz death camps, and their collection looted by the Nazi high command.

After the war, Gutmann's son and then grandson searched for the painting, one of the gems of the collection, for decades. The grandson, Simon Goodman (the family changed the spelling of the name), says the painting was listed on an inventory of works recommended for the personal use of Adolf Hitler. "That was the last mention I could trace," Goodman told The Associated Press. "The trail had gone completely cold."

But late last year, people in possession of the work, whose identity Christie's is not making public, approached the auction house to see if it was indeed from the Gutmann collection. "They weren't sure what they had," Goodman says.

Goodman, who lives in Los Angeles, says the approach to the auction house was spurred by his book, "The Orpheus Clock," in which he detailed his search for his family's looted artworks. "Go figure, someone picks up my book at the local library, and look what comes back," he said. "It's all rather serendipitous." He added that of all his family's missing artworks, this painting was one of those he least expected to find — and most wanted to.

Goodman finally saw the painting — titled "Portrait of John Frederick I, Elector of Saxony" — a few weeks ago in New York, he says. "My wife took a picture of me hugging it like a long-lost family member," he says. "It's wonderful when you find something that has survived. I'm touching something that my grandfather loved."

Goodman, 70, was born in London, a few years after his grandparents who originally came from Germany but moved to the Netherlands, were killed. Through the artwork, he says, "I'm reconnecting with the family I never knew." He says about a third of his family's collection has been recovered so far, and he continues to search for many pieces — a fulltime pursuit.

The painting will be auctioned April 19. Christie's has estimated the price at $1 million to $2 million.

Selena Gomez responds after bikini pics show scar

Selena Gomez took to Instagram after bikini photos of her in Australia showing a scar drew social media comments that she looked "thick."

The singer wrote that the beauty myth was "an obsession with physical perfection that traps modern woman in an endless cycle of hopelessness, self consciousness and self-hatred."

Gomez says she "chose to take care of myself" because she wants to and "not to prove anything to anyone."

The scar was the result of a complication from her 2017 kidney transplant.

The post included a video of Gomez with friends on a boat in Sydney Harbor.

Former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal files lawsuit to speak about alleged Trump affair

Former Playboy model Karen McDougal is suing to break a 2016 contract that reportedly requires her to keep silent about an affair with Donald Trump years before he became president.

>> For the latest Trump coverage, visit Jamie Dupree’s Washington Insider blog

In the complaint — which was obtained by The New York Times — McDougal’s lawyers allege that she had a “10-month relationship with Mr. Trump” in 2006. They say McDougal decided to pursue a lawsuit because “she has become aware of the broad effort to silence and intimidate her and others.”

The former Playmate is suing in the Los Angeles Superior court, and she’s charging American Media Inc. with paying her $150,000 for her story, then killing it. American Media Inc. owns the National Enquirer, which has been friendly to Trump during his candidacy and tenure in the White House.

McDougal also claims that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was involved in the deal and that she was misled in the proceedings.

She is the second woman to accuse the president’s personal lawyer of paying her to keep silent about an extramarital relationship with Trump. McDougal says she was paid $150,000 for her silence — earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal outlined payments Cohen made to porn star Stormy Daniels. Both women claim that their affairs with Trump occurred in 2006, after he married Melania Trump.

Daniels is currently being sued by Cohen, who claims that she violated the confidentiality agreement she signed in 2016. Daniels' story doesn’t look like it’s ending anytime soon, as she’s lined up for an interview with “60 Minutes.”

Fox military analyst says network makes him ashamed

A military analyst for Fox News said Tuesday that he was quitting the network because he believed it had turned into a propaganda machine for President Donald Trump's administration.

Ralph Peters, a retired U.S. Army officer, said he told Fox at the beginning of the month that he did not want his contributor contract renewed.

"Over my decade at Fox, I was long proud of the association," Peters wrote in an email that was distributed to colleagues at Fox News, and first reported by BuzzFeed News. "Now I am ashamed."

Fox said in a statement that the network did not want attributed to a specific spokesperson that Peters was entitled to his opinion, "despite the fact that he's choosing to use it as a weapon in order to get attention." Fox said it was proud of its opinion programming and prime-time hosts.

Peters said he believed Fox had "degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration."

He criticized prime-time hosts for "profoundly dishonest assaults" on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community and special counsel Robert Mueller, who is conducting an investigation into the Trump administration's dealings with Russia. He accused the network of "scaremongering" with lurid warnings of deep-state machinations.

Peters did not mention any names, but Fox's leading prime-time host, Sean Hannity, has been the most vocal defender of the president while talking of a "deep state" and casting doubt on justice officials. Trump has been an avid watcher of Fox, most notably its morning "Fox & Friends" program. The network is consistently the top-rated cable network each week with a prime-time lineup of Tucker Carlson, Hannity and Laura Ingraham.

The network had an intramural debate of its own last week when news anchor Shepard Smith, who just renewed his contract, said in an interview with Time magazine that Fox's opinion hosts "don't really have rules" and can say whatever they want. He said the opinion lineup is there primarily as entertainment. That led Hannity and Ingraham to fire back, saying their shows have made news.

Peters said it appalled him that "hosts who made their reputations as super-patriots" now advance the agenda of Russian President Vladimir Putin by making light of Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Peters was suspended by Fox for two weeks in 2015 for using a crude word to describe then-President Barack Obama during an appearance on the Fox Business Network.

The retired Army colonel said he did not apply his criticisms to Fox Business, who he called "the grown-ups," and Fox's news reporters.

Weinstein Co.'s bankruptcy could bring new wave of accusers

Is #MeToo part two on the way?

With its bankruptcy, the Weinstein Co. has tossed out the non-disclosure agreements that officials say its co-founder and former CEO Harvey Weinstein wielded as a weapon in his sexual predation, bringing with it the possibility of a whole new wave of victims coming forward.

Bankruptcy filings are normally shrouded in the jargon of finance, but on this point the movie and TV studio was clear:

"Since October, it has been reported that Harvey Weinstein used non-disclosure agreements as a secret weapon to silence his accusers," a Weinstein Co. statement said. "Effective immediately, those 'agreements' end. No one should be afraid to speak out or coerced to stay quiet."

The rare move from a major business is likely to send new witnesses and victims to media outlets and investigators, which put out fresh calls Tuesday for their stories.

It's unlikely, however, to spur a new surge in high-profile actresses coming forward, as Rose McGowan, Ashley Judd, Salma Hayek and many others have in recent months.

That's because the Weinstein Co. only has the power to end agreements made by the company not Weinstein himself, meaning its effect will be primarily on current and former employees.

Cris Armenta, a lawyer representing accusers in a proposed class-action lawsuit against the Weinstein Co., said she fears that because so many of the agreements are with Weinstein himself and still apply, the impact may not be major.

"What are they actually releasing, and is it just window dressing?" Armenta said Tuesday.

Armenta also worries that as creditors line up in front of those who have sued the company to get paid in bankruptcy, it could be "leaving the plaintiffs with nothing to hold on to."

Still, there is a large pool of people, many of them less powerful, lower-level employees with more to fear, who may now break their silence over what happened to them or what they saw.

They include workers like Zelda Perkins, a former Weinstein assistant who was among the first of his accusers to break a commitment to stay quiet after keeping Weinstein secrets for nearly 20 years. She told The Financial Times in October that Weinstein sexually harassed her "on every occasion I was alone with him" and said she spoke out in part to demonstrate "how egregious these agreements are."

Perkins is precisely the kind of workplace harassment subject that the Weinstein Co.'s move will free to speak, and who the move's champions hope will be helped.

"This is a watershed moment for efforts to address the corrosive effects of sexual misconduct in the workplace," said New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who fought for the provision in the Weinstein Co.'s bankruptcy. He added in his statement that it "will finally enable voices that have for too long been muzzled to be heard."

On Tuesday, Schneiderman's office sent out a tweet urging victims and witnesses to contact his office, which is conducting a civil rights investigation of the Weinstein Co. and of Weinstein himself.

Time's Up, an initiative started by a powerhouse group of Hollywood industry women to fight systemic sexual harassment, also urged those newly freed by the Weinstein bankruptcy to come to it with their stories, as did The New York Times.

In addition to bringing unprecedented attention to sexual harassment, the post-Weinstein world has seen a new level of scrutiny of nondisclosure agreements — "NDAs" for short in legal jargon — contractual pledges not to discuss what happened that are common features of financial settlements.

They have since been a central part of news stories including porn actress Stormy Daniels saying she had sex with President Donald Trump, sexual misconduct allegations against casino magnate Steve Wynn, and settlements between USA Gymnastics and gymnasts who were forbidden to speak about their abuse at the hands of team doctor Larry Nassar.

Several states including California and New York have considered legislation stopping or limiting nondisclosure agreements in cases of sexual misconduct.

"Secret settlements serve one primary purpose: To keep sexual predators away from the public eye and continuing to torment and hurt innocent victims," state Sen. Connie Leyva said in a statement introducing such a bill in California in January.

But while NDAs have become tools of the rich and powerful, they are not without benefits for their victims, who may want to keep their ordeal private or whose silence may be the only leverage they have in getting legal recourse.

Some 80 women, including prominent actresses, have accused Weinstein of misconduct ranging from rape to harassment.

He has denied any allegations of non-consensual sex.

Former WWE champ Goldberg transitions to ABC comedy

Bill Goldberg is on another winning streak.

The former WCW and WWE heavyweight champion can follow another, albeit less punishing, script on a show with an easy enough name for him to remember.

Goldberg, meet "The Goldbergs."

The 51-year-old Goldberg has a co-starring role on the ABC comedy when he appears as coach Nick Mellor on Wednesday's episode. He plays the brother of series regular Rick Mellor (Bryan Callen), the gym coach. The brothers have a strained relationship that can only be patched up by Beverly Goldberg when they are forced to temporarily move into the Goldbergs' house.

"I felt like I was at home. Everywhere I turned, I saw my name," Goldberg said, laughing in a phone interview. "It gave me an opportunity to show the lighter side of Goldberg."

He built his reputation as one of the baddest men in pro wrestling.

Goldberg, who had a brief NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons, burst onto the wrestling scene with the now-defunct WCW on a 173-0 winning streak capped by a win over "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan for the championship. He moved on to WWE and won the championship before he took a 12-year hiatus from the sport.

Goldberg returned in 2016 and would become the company's universal champion. He lost the championship to Brock Lesnar at last year's WrestleMania in what stands as his last match.

"Do I want to roll the dice again? I don't know," Goldberg said. "I'll quote one of the most famous movies that I was ever in, 'Santa's Slay': It ain't over 'til I say it's over."

Goldberg made his surprise return in large part to get the chance to wrestle in front of his wife and young son. The son turned 11 last year and had never seen his dad wrestle. Goldberg often hoisted his son on his shoulders, brought him into the ring or gave him a shoutout during his comeback run.

"The angle was real and it was touching and it was true. I kind of left it all out there. It was a cleansing experience," Goldberg said. "I owe it all to Vince McMahon and Brock Lesnar. They gave me the opportunity to be one of the coolest dads in the world and they didn't have to do that."

He has more big days ahead.

Goldberg is set to co-host the History Channel show, "Forged in Fire: Knife or Death," he hosts the automotive podcast "CarCast" and he has an April 6 date at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans set for his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. He'll headline a class that includes Mark Henry, Hillbilly Jim, the Dudley Boyz and celebrity inductee Kid Rock.

"Thankfully for the people that didn't forget about me, they welcomed me with open arms," Goldberg said.
