Julianne Hough suffers from endometriosis, needs appendix removed
Tuesday, October 28, 2008
– Julianne Hough was diagnosed with endometriosis and will undergo "minor surgery to remove her appendix," she said on her web site Tuesday. Hough experienced mild stomach pains last week and was taken to Cedars Sinai medical center. There was no word on when the surgery would be.
After consulting with her doctor, this course of treatment was recommended. Hough spoke about it on Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars" and plans on returning to the show in a week to dance with celebrity partner Cody Linley if they continue to advance in the competition. Pro dancer, Edyta Sliwinska, will fill in for Hough as Linley's partner this week should he make it through tomorrow's elimination.
Endometriosis is the development of uterine-lining tissue outside the uterus on the surfaces of organs in the pelvis or abdomen where they are not supposed to grow. It is a common medical condition found in 5-10 percent of women of reproductive age around the world.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Cantrell continues to satisfy
Laura Cantrell may never be a country star. Not at this stage of her career when she's 50, touring here and there and releasing new music every few years or so. But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country.
That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
