Olivia Newton-John Gives Health Update During Appearance On ‘The Talk’
Olivia Newton-John gave fans a health update during a recent appearance on CBS’ The Talk, where the singer told hosts Sharon Osbourne, Carrie Ann Inaba, Eve, Sheryl Underwood and Marie Osmond that she had fantastic news to share.
“I went to the oncologist yesterday and things are shrinking and going away,” Newton-John said when updating the hosts about her battle against breast cancer.
“That’s what you want to hear,” replied Sharon Osbourne, who battled colon cancer and beat the disease in 2002.
The Grease actress and legendary singer later took to her Facebook page, writing about how much fun it was to appear on the daytime talk show. She also shared a few photos of herself with the hosts, who applauded Newton-John for her bravery in the face of adversity.
Newton-John was diagnosed with breast cancer for the third time in 2017. She previously battled the disease in 1992 and in 2013.
Fans were happy to see the singer in good spirits, leaving plenty of adoring comments on her Facebook post.
“How can one not totally admire and respect this wonderful person? She’s truly an angel on earth,” one fan wrote.
“I love your kind spirit, Olivia. You have brought so much light to my life,” another fan commented.
“Olivia, It’s a pleasure to see you beautiful and positive. An interesting and enjoyable interview,” a third follower commented.
The Inquisitr previously reported that during her appearance on The Talk, the singer spoke about model Gigi Hadid’s take on her iconic Grease look from the 1978 film. The ensemble included leather pants, a black leather jacket, wild curls and red high heels.
Newton-John sported the sexy look during the film’s explosive ending, where the character of Sandy Olsson changes her overall persona from sweet to sassy to please her boyfriend, greaser Danny Zuko (John Travolta).
Newton-John quipped that the model should buy the original costume from the film, which is one of 500 items on sale at Julien’s Auctions. The proceeds from the sale will be donated to the singer’s cancer wellness and research center — a public hospital that carries out breakthrough research and clinical trials, according to the official website.
Newton-John’s husband, John Easterling, helped the singer in her battle against cancer by learning how to grow herbal remedies — including the use of cannabis — to ensure a better quality of life for her.
In an interview with Good Housekeeping, the legendary singer and actress said that she was hesitant to use cannabis for her pain at first. However, when Newton-John learned more about the positive effects it could have on her health, she allowed herself to try it.
The Talk airs weekdays on CBS.
