Dr. Oz: Angelina Jolie's Announcement Is a 'Kick in the Pants' for Women | Angelina Jolie, Dr. Oz

Dr. Oz Calls Angelina Jolie's Announcement a 'Kick in the Pants' for Women

Originally posted 05/15/2013 08:55AM

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."

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 Reveals the 'Stupidest Decision I Have Ever Made' | Rosie O'Donnell

Rosie O'Donnell Says Not Calling 911 During Heart Attack Was the 'Stupidest Decision'

Originally posted 10/24/2012 02:50PM

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."

Valerie Bertinelli Admits: I Used Food as a Crutch

These days, Valerie Bertinelli is looking good, feeling good and happily married to husband Tom Vitale.

But that wasn't always the case. On an episode of The Dr. Oz Show airing Monday, the Hot in Cleveland star frankly discusses her past drug use and addiction to food.

"[Using drugs] wreaked havoc on [my body], because one day I'm eating a healthy meal and the next day I'm just putting a bunch of white powder up my nose," Bertinelli, 52, tells Dr. Mehmet Oz during the appearance.

Bertinelli blames not taking care of herself on the fact that she had low self-worth. "I'm not being good to myself ... I'm not worth being treated well anyway, so I'll just treat myself even worse," she says. "I'm so glad I'm not that person anymore."
