Dancing with the Stars cohost, Brooke Burke, is offering her opinion on the Melissa Ethridge versus Angelina Jolie comments.
Ethridge, who is a breast cancer survivor gave an interview last week, in which she was critical of Jolie’s decision to have a preventative double-mastectomy. “I wouldn’t call it the brave choice. I actually think it’s the most fearful choice you can make when confronting anything with cancer,” Melissa said.
Brooke, who battled thyroid cancer during the last season of her reality series told E! news, “I feel like to comment on somebody else’s decision and their motivation and to criticize it in any way feels really inappropriate for me.” Brooke continued, “And I bite my tongue because Angelina is not a personal friend and I can’t speak about her experience, but doing something electively to avoid greats odds that you can have a fatal disease, not only is it brave, but I think it’s pretty intelligent.”
