Brittany Daniel's cancer war

Brittany Daniel, star of BET's The Game. has revealed that she has battled cancer - and prevailed. Daniel, 38, began suffering from back pain and flulike symptoms in the summer of 2011. She got a big shock when she was told she had stage IV non-Hodgkins lymphoma. "It happened so suddenly," Daniel tells People mag.

But it was anything but a death sentence.

"I want to let people know it is absolutely possible to get through something like this," the actor tells People mag.

Her battle with the illness included chemotherapy as well as the support and love of her family, including her twin sister Cynthia. "There is no way I would have ever gotten through this without my family," she says. Daniel says she's now cancer-free.

Hilary Clinton's beach book

Afraid you'll be bored when you head to the shore this summer? Lug along Hilary Clinton's yet-to-be-titled memoir, a sequel of sorts to 2003's Living History, which Clinton announced Wednesday at an event for the Association of American Publishers in New York, USA Today reports.

Due in June from from Simon & Schuster, it will be about "our rapidly changing and interdependent world, and the challenges facing us" in places such as Crimea.

Or, as Clinton put it, "just another light summer read."
