On Monday, E! personality Giuliana Rancic revealed some sad news to TODAY's Ann Curry: She has breast cancer.
The story of the "Fashion Police" star's tale of her cancer discovery was not only our most popular post of the week by a wide margin, it also drew the most responses on our Facebook page. After her reveal, readers shared their own stories about battling breast cancer, offered Rancic words of support and discussed how her story moved them to take action.
"Even though you never meet people like Giuliana in person, watching her shows makes you care," wrote reader Shawn Blass Jones.
"I've been holding on to my doctor's mammogram order for 6 months. After this story aired I picked up the phone and made an appointment for my first mammogram," wrote reader Kristen Johnson Lehman. "God bless you, Giuliana."
The story that took a distant second this week? The latest "Dancing With the Stars" ouster, of course! "DWTS" rides high not only in the Nielsen ratings, but also in popularity with Clicker readers, and they were not pleased when former "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" star Carson Kressley got the boot.
"Although Carson was not a very good dancer, he gave it his all, and did the best he could! And he was more entertaining than anyone else on the show," wrote reader Eadie Silverberg on our Facebook page.
"Carson wasn't a good dancer but great entertainer that brought pizzaz to the show, something that Chaz does not," wrote reader Linda Wieland-Williams. "If anyone should go it should be Chaz who can't dance and brings nothing to the show."
"I will no longer watch the rest of the season. This show is supposed to be about people like Carson who give it their all each time they dance and Carson did," wrote Lisa Holmes.
Can't argue with the fact that he was the most entertaining personality on the show this season! (BTW, "Dancing" fans: As you requested, I'll be holding live chats during the East Coast airings of the performance shows on Monday right here in this blog. Join me!)
Third most popular? Drama on a reality show never fails to catch your attention. This time, it was thanks to "Biggest Loser" hopeful Bonnie lashing out at new trainer Anna Kournikova. The blue team member accused the tennis star of favoritism, putting her in a bad mood and more, but she received little sympathy from the other trainers or her fellow players. And readers didn't exactly side with her either.
"Bonnie needs to get over herself. There have been plenty of people on BL in their 60's with health issues and physical hurdles to overcome," wrote reader Danielle Lembo on our Facebook page. "If Anna is being tough on her, it's because she needs it. Wah, wah, wah."
"Bonnie is ruining the show. She is an embarrassment to those of us in our sixties!" wrote reader Margaret Zambito.
