Sheryl Crow, who’s previously suffered from breast cancer, has a brain tumor.

The good news is the tumor is benign.

In an interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal, Sheryl, 50, said her memory had gotten so bad, she had an MRI done.

She got the news about the tumor, a typically benign meningioma, last November, but has kept quiet about it.

According to People magazine, the tumor should not require surgery.

World to end during sweeps?

We already have “Survivor.” Why not “Survivalist”?

Spike TV is starting a game show this fall to award a fortified bunker in an undisclosed location to a family who believes the end is near.

Hey, for them it may be.

Spike said Tuesday that it will air a six-episode series called “Last Family on Earth” in which survivalists will compete to show how tough and resourceful they are. There will not be a seventh episode for obvious reasons.

Spike executive Sharon Levy says the series isn’t a comedy. She also says it isn’t necessarily tied to ancient Mayan predictions.

Guess that means it’s tied to the ravings of whack jobs.

A better game show should be figuring out what catastrophe is going to end the world — pollution, ozone depletion, rising tides, nuclear annihilation or apocalypse — with the prize going to the person who figures out how to stop it.

Jubilee, Part Two

Pageantry greeted Queen Elizabeth II Tuesday, the last of four days of diamond jubilee celebrations honoring her 60 years on the throne.

If you’re not the queen and have been on the throne that long, Tattle recommends stool softener.

“We are marking six decades of living proof that public service is possible and that it is a place where happiness can be found,” Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams told royals and dignitaries at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Since someone has to be a cynic, it is easier to live a life of public service when your job is … public service.

TATTBITS

Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White has denied a motion by the makers of “Happy Days” to dismiss claims by several former cast members — Anson Williams, Marion Ross, Don Most, Erin Moran and the widow of Tom Bosley — that they are owed DVD royalties.

The ruling Tuesday clears the way for a trial.

Disney said Tuesday that as of 2015, it will become the first major media company to ban junk food ads on its media properties intended for children.

When will it ban junk programming?

Whitney Houston’s mother, Cissy Houston, has a deal with HarperCollins for a bio about her daughter. The untitled book is scheduled to come out next February.

The U.S. has terminated funding for a $20 million project to develop a Pakistani version of “Sesame Street” in response to alleged corruption by the Rafi Peer Theater Workshop, the local puppet theater working on the initiative.

Before you start writing letters, it’s a case of alleged fraud. There was no character named Suicide-Bomber Elmo.
