Following a very rough couple of weeks, Camille Grammer says she's doing well – even without the support of her allegedly abusive boyfriend.
"I'm feeling great," the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star tells Dr. Mehmet Oz on The Dr. Oz Show Thursday, just four weeks after undergoing a radical hysterectomy for early stage endometrial cancer.
"Once in a while I'll get a little pain here and there, but I'm walking around," she adds. "I was able to go trick-or-treating with my kids and my life is moving forward and I'm feeling very well."

Dr. Mehmet Oz proved that he doesn't just play a physician on TV when he rushed to help an accident victim hurt outside his offices near Rockefeller Center in New York City on Tuesday.
The cardiothoracic surgeon and host of The Dr. Oz Show hurried to the scene when a taxi driver lost control of his cab, driving onto the sidewalk and into a group of unsuspecting pedestrians. A woman, reported by the Daily News to be a British tourist, lost her left foot.
Dr. Oz said on his Facebook page that a plumber from New York, David Justino, acted quickly by removing his belt and using it as a tourniquet to stanch the bleeding from the woman's leg.

We have seen the future of cancer, says Dr. Oz.
Angelina Jolie's bold announcement that she had undergone a preventative double mastectomy has realigned our thinking about the disease, Oz tells PEOPLE:
"It changes everything about how the public will perceive cancer," Oz says. "She had remarkable insight into the challenges she faced, she embraced information, knowledge. She realized testing gave her power and she spoke very directly to women with some very sage advice, which I applaud. It changes everything on how we perceive cancer prevention."
"This shows us what the future of cancer will look like. What Angelina did was to change the dynamic – when a young, sexy woman electively, because of remarkable advancements in technology, allows some of her most sensuous parts to be removed in order to save her life so she can be here for her kids, that's a seismic shift."

Wendy Williams has lost about 20 pounds in the last year, but the talk show host says her accomplishment is about more than just looking good.
Williams says she has come to a place of self-acceptance – with food and her looks.
"It's not a big deal. It might not be right for everybody, but I am perfect the way I am right now," Williams, 48, told Dr. Mehmet Oz on The Dr. Oz Show. "I weigh 175 pounds. I am very accepting of my height and weight and where I am probably for the first time steadily in my life. I feel good."

How do you lose more than 40 lbs. in six months after giving birth? Just by really, really wanting to – it's as simple as that.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi did just that, and says anyone can do it if they're committed to looking trim and fit again.
"I don't consider myself to be, like, a 'celebrity mom,' " the Jersey Shore star, 25, says in an interview airing Monday on The Dr. Oz Show. "I don't even consider myself famous. I just think I'm well known. And I'm very relatable, I feel. And I'm just a normal girl doing normal things."

Rosie O'Donnell could have died when she suffered a heart attack earlier this year, and she now says that deciding not to call 911 was a nearly fatal choice.
"I said to Michelle, 'I think this could be a heart attack,' " O'Donnell, 50, says, referring to her wife Michelle Rounds, on the The Dr. Oz Show airing Thursday. "She says, 'I'm going get you some aspirin.' By chance, three days before, [Michelle] had purchased Bayer Women's Aspirin. I chewed them, and then I fell asleep. But then I did not call 911, and I should have."
O'Donnell says she later learned that women often don't reach out for help during a heart attack. "Fifty percent of women, while having heart attacks and suspecting they're having heart attacks, do not call 911," she says. "It was the stupidest decision I ever made in my life."
