‘Veep’ Star Julia Louis-Dreyfus Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis
Deadline ^ | September 28, 2017 | Nellie Andreeva

Posted on 09/28/2017 11:08:43 AM PDT by EdnaMode

Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the Emmy-winning star of HBO’s comedy series Veep, just announced on Instagram that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer. (you can read below her note, which also gives support to universal health care)

Sources say she got the news the day after she won her sixth consecutive lead actress Emmy for the acclaimed HBO comedy and third consecutive best comedy series trophy for the show, which she also executive produces. Her illness is not related to the decision to make the upcoming seventh season of Veep its last, which was made weeks earlier. Veep‘s writing team will continue to work on scripts for Season 7, whose production will be adjusted to accommodate its star if needed.

“Our love and support go out to Julia and her family at this time,” HBO said in a statement. “We have every confidence she will get through this with her usual tenacity and undaunted spirit, and look forward to her return to health and to HBO for the final season of Veep.”

There are some fascinating “false positive” tidbits in there.

Most and almost all episodes dealt with making a mockery of conservatives, Bush, Trump, Christians and Republicans. Also was the mastermind behind the “no plastic bag” law in Los Angeles. What goes around comes around.

She’s a big time lefty, but I truly hope they caught it in time.

Her father is a billionaire, she will get the best care money can provide.

The rest of us? Not so much.

I surfed into an interview with her. First Question? I'm sure you were just as surprised as the rest of us when Hillary Clinton didn't win as expected last year...." Much nervous laughter and snarky commentary followed.

I watched it for a few minutes. It was instructive to see behind the curtains on how the elite left really thinks. Surprised that it was aired.

And she’s so concerned she promptly makes it a political statement.

Don’t care.

I hope you're not implying that breast cancer is condign punishment for people behaving in a politically improper way. My wife has stage 4, and she's about as moral-minded and conservative as you can get.

My wife had surgery, chemo and radiation in 2004. Today at 71, she goes to Zumba twice a week and is fitter than most of the class of mostly 30 and 40 year olds.

Let me guess, It's because, "Elaine" masturbated?
