Sounded too good to be true, and it was: Valerie Harper is not “cancer free,” as Closer Weekly reported. There is no cure for leptomeningeal carcinomatosis — cancer of the membranes around Harper’s brain. The veteran actress says in a statement that the magazine’s reporter misunderstood when she said her most recent full-body scan was clean and that the cancer had not spread.

Love not war

When all else fails? Kill ’em with kindness. Demi Lovato lives by that rule. The Skyscraper singer responded to a hater who called her a “fatty,” Tweeting: “You are beautiful . . Everyone's equal, everyone has a soul and everyone deserves to be loved.”

Speaking of weight, Tori Spelling tells Us Weekly that she is not under 100 pounds, as a recent tabloid suggested, though the mother of four is indeed under stress due to her cheating, sex-addicted husband Dean McDermott. See their relationship in the raw on Lifetime’s True Tori, premiering at 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Living apart

Are Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman the next to consciously uncouple? Geography may be partially to blame for their recent rift, with Urban filming American Idol in L.A. and Kidman Down Under with their two daughters. Star magazine also points out that the Oscar winner is wary of the country star’s flirty nature.

Perfect pair?

At least Kidman’s ex is making out just fine. As per Page Six, Tom Cruise has chosen Orange is the New Black star and fellow Scientologist Laura Prepon as his latest girlfriend. Whatever they’ve got going has been happening for the past five months or so.

Health scare

Kris Jenner’s hospitalization is still a mystery wrapped in an enigma. Since the momager, 58, is the TMI queen, we doubt her condition will stay under wraps. E! News says Jenner had “internal pains,” which could be a lot of things, from intestinal to gynecological issues.

I surrender

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams handed herself over to Atlanta police before an arrest warrant was issued against her. The 31-year-old was charged with simple battery after the alleged on-camera brawl with Bravo costar Kenya Moore on the show’s finale airing Sunday.
