One Day At A  Time sitcom star, Broadway veteran, and a recent guest star on The Young and the Restless, Bonnie Franklin, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

In a brief statement issued by her family circulated by CBS, it stated Franklin was being treated for pancreatic cancer and was “continuing her normal schedule during this time.”   It went on to say that, “She and her family remain extremely positive and thank everyone for their support and concern.”  It concluded with a request that her privacy be respected.

Franklin last aired today on Y&R as Sister Celeste, a modern day nun, and was involved in Victor Newman’s MIA storyline that is playing out now.

Bonnie is best known for playing divorced mom Ann Romano in CBS’s hit comedy One Day at a Time, which ran from 1975-84.  She also appeared in TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland last year — reuniting her with her One Day co-star Valerie Bertinelli. 

Our thoughts are with Bonnie and her family at this time.

I’m in agreement with dg on this! I was very saddened to hear that she has pancreatic cancer and it is one of those cancers that if not caught early will very likely kill you. My prayers go out to Bonnie Franklin, her family and friends as she battles this disease at this difficult time. Godspeed Bonnie! Get well soon!

This is so sad. Usually when they discover pancreatic cancer it’s too late to do anything about it. It can briefly go into remission, but usually it means you’re gone in less than a year. I’ve lost 3 friends/relatives to this type of cancer in the last four years and it’s been the same basic scenario for all of them.

What awful news. I have really enjoyed her as Sister Celeste. I know I wasn’t on board to begin with all the stunt casting, but she is very likeable. I hope she can muster the strength to fight this terrible disease.

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

Huffman told the judge during her sentencing, “I was frightened. I was stupid, and I was so wrong.”

So, what do you think of the 14-day sentence and that Felicity is already beginning her jail time? Comment below.
