Eartha Kitt's Cancer Revelation

Iconic singer/actress EARTHA KITT was forced to postpone her New York concerts two months ago (APR06) after discovering she had colon cancer. The SANTA BABY hitmaker, 79, was diagnosed with the potentially-deadly disease in April (06) during a doctor's appointment concerning her carpal tunnel syndrome. Fortunately, her early diagnosis meant Kitt could undergo a successful operation and was able to reschedule her month-long residency at Manhattan's Cafe Carlyle to start tonight (06JUN06). Kitt tells gossip site PageSix.com, "I never expect anything to happen to me. I'm the healthiest person in the world. "They operated right away, and I'm fine. "I'd advise everyone to get a colonoscopy. "(Working again) makes me feel grateful that I'm still wanted. Anyway, what would I retire to?"
