I was very pleased to watch the interview with Amy Brenneman (of Private Practice) on the View two days ago. She opened up about her private struggles and said that she had ulcerative colitis and had her colon removed! She did not say if she had an ostomy or not. It is so positive to have someone who touches millions of lives every week admit to having this terrible disease and to be leading by example. A full life, working in TV, and looking fabulous.
