LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Patrick Swayze made peace with the notion of dying from pancreatic cancer after initially finding his diagnosis a "cruel joke," according to a memoir to be published later this month.

The "Dirty Dancing" star, 57, who lost his 20-month battle against the disease on Monday, wrote that fighting his cancer had been an "emotional rollercoaster".

But in excerpts of the memoir "The Time of My Life", released on Wednesday, he wrote later; "I began thinking to myself, I've had more lifetimes than any 10 people put together, and it's been an amazing ride. So this is okay."

Ellen Degeneres to be an American Idol Judge

Ellen Degeneres, not known for her singing talent but her bad comedy, signed a 5 year deal to be the 4th judge at American Idol. I guess 7 years is up. I think the show is now becoming a freak show. They used to discover great "American Idols" such as Ruben Studdard and Justin Guarini. They should pull Simon Cowell and put Pauly Shore instead. Why not go all the way?
