Breaking celebrity news.
It's all about the women in this week's Celebrity News as the stars support Angelina Jolie, Lindsay Lohan slowly adjusts to rehab and Barbara Walters gets ready to say goodbye.
Brave and strong Angies.
With surgery scheduled earlier this week, model, actress and mother, Angie Everhart ("Take Me Home Tonight") is expected to recover from her recent thyroid cancer diagnosis. According to Us Weekly, reps for Everhart say her decision to disclose her medical condition was to help others learn about cancer prevention and early treatment as she reportedly received a good prognosis. Angelina Jolie ("Salt") was similarly moved after revealing her reasons for spending the last several months undergoing surgery and breast reconstruction for a double mastectomy at the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills, CA. Jolie's likelihood of getting the same cancer that took her mother in 2007 was that much higher as a result of a BCRA1 gene – a faulty gene that predisposed Jolie to breast and ovarian cancer. The loss of her mother and the desire to remain a mother herself led Jolie to bravely opt for a preventive double mastectomy. Despite her last procedure near the end of April, it has been speculated that Jolie may be facing more preventive surgeries related to her risk for ovarian cancer. Jolie is not alone among Hollywood celebrities who have made the same decision, including Christina Applegate ("Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy"), Sharon Osbourne ("The Talk") and Wanda Sykes ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"). Read Jolie's poignant op-ed piece for The New York Times where she opens up about her diagnosis, her courageous decision and the support of her family and fiancé Brad Pitt ("World War Z"), who called her decision "heroic."
Congratulations to America Ferrara ("Ugly Betty") who recently graduated from the University of Southern California with a bachelor's degree in International Relations. Ferrara has been working toward completing her education for the last decade and she shared her pride in this latest accomplishment via Twitter. Reportedly, Ferrara initially took a leave of absence from her studies in 2002 to star as the lead in "Ugly Betty." Her return to school was part of her long-term vision to marry the pursuits of acting and celebrity to the engine of international causes.
I'm walking in my college graduation in 3 days from @uscdornsife! It's finally happening! Took me 10 years, but it feels great.

90210 ends, Mrs. Beech begins.
As "90210" comes to an end, Shenae Grimes (ex-Annie, "90210")' probably isn't mourning the loss of her television character too much these days. Grimes has just married her fiancé, British model Josh Beech, in an intimate ceremony in London, England over the weekend. Grimes' dress was a departure from the usual bridal white, as the actress chose to don a stunning V-neck halter, black tulle-layered Vera Wang gown to share "I dos" with her new husband.

Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder call it quits.
From co-stars on-screen to romantic partners in real-life, Nina Dobrev (Elena, "Vampire Diaries") and Ian Somerhalder (Damon, "Vampire Diaries") have decided to remain just friends and co-stars since ending their relationship earlier this week. Not too far away however, Miley Cyrus, who recently topped Maxim magazine's Hot 100 list, is rumored to be heading to couples therapy as a last ditch effort to hold on to her once "The Last Song" co-star and current fiancé Liam Hemsworth ("Hunger Games"). Despite Cyrus maintaining that she and Hemsworth are solid and making the most of their offbeat schedules, and speculation that Hemsworth's elder brothers staged an intervention, reported insiders at In Touch magazine have Hemworth with one foot out the door, and the other possibly in a spiritual counselor's office together with Cyrus. We'll be keeping an eye on this couple.
Jaden stays at home.
Like most adolescents his age, Jaden Smith ("The Karate Kid") is well aware of where his bread is buttered and isn't in any hurry to move out and strike it out on his own. Smith joined his father on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" this week to promote their latest celluloid collaboration, "After Earth," and took the opportunity to refute the latest rumors that he is seeking a new address and has asked for emancipation from his famous parents Will Smith ("Ali") and Jada Pinkett Smith ("The Matrix Reloaded") as a present for his upcoming fifteenth birthday. Watch the father and son duo as they stick together in "After Earth."
Brooke Mueller clinging to child support?
Despite having to spend an undetermined length of time in rehab, Brooke Mueller is reportedly trying to hold on to her $55,000 a month in child support by seeking custody and a new living arrangement for her two sons with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen ("Anger Management"). Currently, Bob and Max are under the care of Sheen's former wife Denise Richards while Mueller undergoes court-ordered treatment for prescription drug abuse. According to TMZ, Sheen was forced to head to court to confront Mueller's request via her lawyers that their children be placed with Mueller's brother, a relatively unknown uncle, because she feared Sheen's temper. In this way, Mueller would reportedly be able to still collect the $55,000 in child support she received from Sheen. TMZ adds that Sheen was willing to increase the child support payments he currently pays to Richards for their two children Lola and Sam, to keep his boys in her care, but Richards apparently declined.
