But Majella insisted “I feel a little bit like I don’t deserve all the accolades I’m getting because for me, it was a simple thing to do.“When people say ‘You’re brave’, or “you’re this or that”, I squirm a bit and think: “I’m not really, that’s just me.”“If I’m bald and look ugly, I don’t really care what anybody thinks.”Majella, wife of singer Daniel O’Donnell, was recently pictured taking part in the selfie craze which encouraged women to donate cash as they went without make-up. But Majella revealed she had one up on some women as she posed for her own selfie.“I have to admit that I’m not a big make-up person. Most of the time I don’t wear make-up. I usually wear it when I’m going out.“I’m not one of those people who has to put it on first thing in the morning, I actually can’t be bothered with it,” she said. ‘I SQUIRM WHEN PEOPLE CALL ME BRAVE’ – CANCER BATTLER MAJELLA was last modified: April 9th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cancerdonegalMajella O’Donnellmake-upSelfielast_img read more

first_img Testaverde was signed a week ago when Chad Pennington went out for the season with another torn rotator cuff. Lions’ Rogers officially suspended: Detroit wide receiver Charles Rogers was suspended for four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy, the latest setback in his injury-plagued career. The announcement came in a two-sentence statement from the league. Vinny Testaverde was named the New York Jets’ staring quarterback by coach Herman Edwards on Wednesday, a move the desperate Jets hope can spark their floundering offense. His first start comes Sunday against Tampa Bay, the team that drafted him No. 1 overall in 1987. When the 42-year-old takes the field, he will be the fourth-oldest quarterback to start a game in the Super Bowl era, behind Steve DeBerg, Warren Moon and Doug Flutie.

But only infrequently does a comedian come along who can make us laugh with painful intensity even while forcing us to confront uncomfortable realities about ourselves and our society. Richard Pryor, who died Saturday, was one of those very few. In many ways, Pryor, a San Fernando Valley resident, was a pioneer in entertainment, not just for other black comedians but also for his scathingly funny, in-your-face, very un-P.C. shtick uncommon in the 1960s and 1970s. Pryor had been absent from the Hollywood scene in any significant way in recent years as he battled multiple sclerosis, but his contribution to comedy was such that he will be remembered for a long, long time. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
