Michael Douglas sparked a media frenzy when he claimed that his throat cancer was caused by HPV, which was contracted during oral sex. The Gossip Table has learned the actor failed at an attempt to have a PSA moment when he spoke to Marianne Garvey’s team while being honored by the American Cancer Society. His wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, was a no-show at the event and has provided no comment on the story. Looks like someone’s not too happy about the HPV flap.
