Fans of "Rhoda" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" rejoiced Wednesday when Valerie Harper announced that she was "cancer-free" in Closer magazine.
Unfortunately, the excitement was short-lived. Harper, 74, soon after released a statement clarifying her comments as to how she's really doing since being diagnosed with cancer early last year.
"In response to a recent erroneous quote concerning my health, I am not 'absolutely cancer-free,'" Harper said. “I wish I were. Right now what I am is cautiously optimistic about my present condition and I have hope for the future."
The actress further described her condition during a new interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday to promote her upcoming Hallmark movie, "Signed, Sealed, Delivered," which premieres this Saturday.

It was announced this week that Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs is going to receive an honorary degree from Howard University, and the decision sparked controversy. When Ben Affleck received an honorary degree from Brown, there was nary a peep. What's going on here?
Let's remember that Combs himself attended Howard, but only for two years, leaving the historically black university to pursue his dreams of mogul-ness. That makes him a dropout, a label that some academia fans can't abide. And many Howard students and alumni took to Twitter on Tuesday to express their disappointment in the school's choice for a commencement speaker, including Darien Carterwho tweeted:
Can someone explain why Diddy, a person who never graduated from Howard, is speaking at graduation?
Allow me to amend that to: DROPPED OUT OF HOWARD

Victoria Beckham is known for many things, including girl power, being married to hunky David Beckham, and her infamous pout.
However, in the fashion community, Posh is better recognized for her meticulous eye for trends, her ability to influence celebrity style, and her vigilant efforts to bring prim and proper looks back to women's fashion.
In November 2011, Beckham was named "Designer of the Year" at the annual British Fashion Awards, and unlike many celebrity designers, she's actually earned her keep in the discerning fashion world.
In fact, the former Spice Girl is responsible for many of the trends regular women (5-inch platform shoes, anyone?) have tested out.
To celebrate Victoria Beckham's 40th birthday on April 17, we look at six "P" styles that Posh initiated.
The Pixie: The pixie cut probably seemed like a hot new trend this year after Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron, and a slew of other A-list women debuted the short style, but they all owe their coif to Beckham. The British babe kicked off the hair trend in September 2008, when she hit New York Fashion Week with a pixie. It was aptly renamed the "poxie."

Has Leonardo DiCaprio gone from chic to geek?
The 39-year-old was "King of the World" back in the '90s, but lately, his coolness factor has plummeted. Sure, he's continued to galavant around the world, steal the hearts of twentysomething models, and look good in a suit. But something's just a little… off.
Let's examine the evidence:
His man-bun: Earlier this month, DiCaprio was photographed on vacation amid crystal blue waters and beautiful beaches in Bora Bora with his latest young model girlfriend, 21-year-old Toni Garn. The picture of paradise was marred only by the unfortunate hairstyle that Leo sported. Jared Leto, Chris Hemsworth, David Beckham, and Orlando Bloom have all managed to rock the same look without compromising their coolness, but Leo missed the mark. The main reason is that his man bun appears to (gasp!) be all about function, not fashion; everyone knows that celebs deemed "cool" are worried first and foremost about how they look at any given moment.

Late last year, Lady Gaga was announced as the new face of Versace's spring/summer 2014 campaign, and in the images, the "Do What U Want" singer looked absolutely flawless.
But now, images of the untouched ads have surfaced online, and while Mama Monster still looks beautiful, the before shots are completely different than the digitally altered snapshots. The leaked pics feature the singer wearing little to no makeup and, sporting bruises on her legs, and her hair (while still blond) is a much darker shade than it appears to be in the completed campaign.
But this isn't the only controversy Gaga's faced this week. Check out the video to hear about the drama, and be sure to tune into "The Insider" on TV tonight for the latest in entertainment news.
Here Comes the... Crop Top?! The Trendy New Wedding Dresses Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, and Angelina Jolie Could WearSuzy Byrne at Yahoo Celebrity6 hrs ago
Kim Kardashian is ready to take the plunge, but will she do so in a crop top wedding dress?
Believe it or not, that was a new trend on display over the weekend at bridal market in New York City, where top wedding dress designers revealed their spring/summer 2014 collections. Others styles making wedding editors do double takes included capes, sexier-than-normal plunging necklines, embellished backs, column beadwork, and "naked lace" (basically lace over a nude underlay). As for the new pink, the nontraditional color embraced by recent brides from Kaley Cuoco to Jessica Biel, that would be a silvery gray — something we've seen trending on TV already.

The show will not go on for Miley Cyrus… tonight in St. Louis, that is.
The "We Can't Stop" singer is still hospitalized in Kansas, which has forced her to cancel the latest stop on her Bangerz tour.
Yesterday, Cyrus was forced to cancel her show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri.
"Miley continues to be hospitalized due to a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics," Cyrus's rep said in a statement. As of now, her Nashville show is still scheduled to go on as planned on Friday; however, Cyrus remains on "medical rest" per her doctor's recommendation.
The 21-year-old has kept fans updated about her condition on Twitter.

There's no competing with the classic image of Audrey Hepburn riding a bicycle, but that didn't stop Kim Kardashian from trying.
The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star, 33, was spotted channeling Hepburn on the set of a Miami photo shoot on Tuesday. In the photographs, Kim is wearing Audrey's signature ensemble of a black turtleneck, cropped pants, and ballet flats, and has her hair pulled back into a chic ponytail. She even sported a pair of faux bangs in an attempt to really nail Hepburn's look.
The original photograph of Hepburn tooling around on a two-wheeler was taken on the set of her 1954 film "Sabrina." In the flick, the British actress-turned-Hollywood darling plays a chauffeur's daughter who transforms herself from a lonely Long Island, New York, girl into a Parisian knockout. When she returns home, two brothers played by Humphrey Bogart and William Holden vie for her heart. The image of Hepburn cycling around on her bike is synonymous with her lengthy career in Tinsletown.

Life's a beach for Heidi Klum and her boyfriend Vito Schnabel. The happy new couple has been spending a bit of quality time in celebrity hot spot Tulum, Mexico, where they sunned, splashed, and packed on some serious PDA.
On Tuesday, the 40-year-old mother of four looked tan and toned as she frolicked with her beau both in the waves and on the shore. Sporting sunglasses and a baseball hat (and not much else), the "America's Got Talent" judge wasn't shy about cozying up to the 27-year-old art dealer and even went topless for much of the afternoon.
For his part, Vito seemed like he didn't have a care in the world either as he strolled in an orange swimsuit with a beer in his hand, a smile on his face, and Heidi by his side.
Things really started heating up when the lovebirds enjoyed a few kisses under the blazing sun. Heidi couldn't keep her hands off her younger man as she draped her arms around Vito's neck and cuddled close.
