    Absolutely Fabulous Star Has Breast Cancer

    Jennifer Saunders, familiar to American TV audiences as the eccentric London public-relations specialist Edina Monsoon on the uproarious British sitcom Absolutely Fabulous, has been fighting breast cancer since discovering a lump last October.

    It's being reported by the BBC that she just completed treatment and her doctors say the screenwriter-actress-comedienne's condition is in remission.

    Saunders, 52, has been seen with closely cropped hair as well as in a wig and bandana at a recent Wimbledon match. She will not comment on her health, her rep tells the BBC.

    Saunders has been married to actor-musician Adrian Edmondson since 1985. They have three daughters.

    Her series Ab Fab, as it was called, debuted in 1992 and continued for several seasons before spinning off into the occasional special. Last Christmas in the U.K., Edina reunited with her pal Patsy Stone (Joanna Lumley) for a commercial for the Marks & Spencer department-store chain. The outlandish Patsy and Eddie have been described as, among other things, "Lucy and Ethel on acid."

    Michael K is reporting she's in remission. Good health Edie!!

    Not Eddie Monsoooooon! AbFab's Jennifer Saunders, the woman I would give my last drop of vodka to if she asked for it, has been battling breast cancer for the past 8 months. Don't run down to the university to get that bitch troll Saffy to open up a can of heartache just yet, because the BBC reports that Jennifer has been told by her doctors that the cancer is in remission after undergoing months of treatment.
    Jennifer was recently seen at Wimbledon wearing a bandana and a wig. This caused a few nosy hos to start speculating shit.
    Jennifer's rep said she won't talk about it and never will, so just leave the "Get better, sweetie darling" card from Lacroix on her doorstep and keep walking.

    OMG, if I hadn't seen that years ago, I would think it was a spoof on Lohan's performance the other day...could have been verbatim.

    God, so sorry to hear this. Hope she's well as she's massively talented.

    Both she and Joanna apparently can't be further from their characters and are totally sweethearts IRL.
