RR actually took a camera down her throat on this morning's show to prove to worried fans (and perhaps a few detractors, as well) that she did NOT have throat cancer, but a cyst, which will be removed in December.
Apparently, she has had tons of messages from folks who were wishing her well and assuming she was battling a serious illness.
I suppose there was no other way to PROVE the tabloids' headlines wrong. But I do feel kind of bad that she felt she had to have a huge metal pole with a camera on the end of it shoved down her throat to show there was only a cyst. I guess that comes with the territory of having your face, and more importantly your products, in every outlet known to humankind.
