Spirited singer Rey fights cancer again

Mirage headliner Ron White announced on Twitter that his wife, Margo Rey, a 4½-octave singer in her own right, has breast cancer again.

She beat back cancer a few years ago. But on Saturday, White and Rey posted a video of him shaving her head. She calls her hairdo “Chemo-Glam.” She calls White the best husband in the world.

White performed this weekend at The Mirage, then went to the hotel’s Bare topless pool lounge without her for once. They usually party hard at Bare. White fell and busted a tooth there once.

They’re a real-deal couple, and they’re firecrackers. He posted a naked photo of her a few months ago. He explained to me back in February:

“Yeah, she’s fun. Margo’s a ball of wax, man. Margo’s cut from a different cloth. I think she’s a little bit of an exhibitionist — a little bit, not completely. I’m not getting strippers in bed with us or anything. But she’s still a blast.”

Fight on, Margo. Show that cancer who’s boss.


Dear Heather Graham,

I was having a nice chat with you at a party in Los Angeles seven years ago, until I used a curse word in casual conversation, and you stormed off.

Then your friend Nadia Dajani told me you hate cursing so much, you walk away from people who curse, which confused me since I’ve seen you naked on screen, and I couldn’t process these two Heather Graham character traits.

Regardless, I am legitimately sorry I offended you.

But now it is time for me to walk away from you, since you bashed my beloved Las Vegas in the British edition of OK magazine while promoting the upcoming “Hangover 3” movie, saying:

“People seem phony, they’re spending all their money and it’s sad. And it’s also so cold with this permanent air conditioning everywhere. I’m more the person who wants to be outside and look at a tree. I don’t want to look at a machine.”

Heather, I am so sorry our beautiful land has no trees and no real human beings made of flesh and blood and feelings.

But I offer you a hearty congratulations on your new trailer, which you described as so “gorgeous, you can live in there.” I hope you, Hollywood actress, enjoy staring at a tree in that trailer, and stock it up with people who aren’t phony friends from Hollywood.

Sincerely, Not Happy With You Right Now.
