  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Farrah by peripatetically on 26 June 2009 5:39pm
I can't help it, but I mustt mention Farrah Fawcett's demise yesterday as well as Michael's. Farrah's was well expected, but it was tremendously sad and very emotional. She might not ahve been an international star, but she was well known by every American , male and female, sicne she was discoved back in the late 70's. She was a model, on every magazine cover. She was picked up as a leading "Charlie's Angels" TV star and went on to prove her acting ability in dramatic roles, (The Burning Bed and others.) She was a free spirit, courageous and devoted to being a mom. Married to the 6 Million Dollar man, Lee majors, and had the most enduring and deep relationship with RTyan O'Neal to her last day. He is totally devastated by this. I watched an interview with him and barbara Walters last night that was made a week ago. it was to air next week, but aired last night considering the circumstances. She was a real inspiration.I can only say that it's been a mighty depressing last 24 hours in the USA.

She's dead, too? OMG! They're dropping like flies!

R.I.P. Farrah!

Farrah had been battling anal cancer for a few years. She made a documentary as she went through her treatments, here in the US and abroad and at her home battling her illness. It was shown on TV just a week or so ago here in the USA. Her best friend, Alana Stewart, made the video at Farrah's request. It was an amateur undertaking but very moving and didn't mince anything.

Although she and Ryan had a tumultuous relationship, there was never a doubt in anybody's mind that they loved each other at all times. Surely the love of each others' lives---real soulmates. When Ryan was diagnosed with Leukemia in the early 2000's, she reunited with him and they eventually became closer than they've ever been. Little did anyone know that the bigger battle was the one to save her own life. She was diagnosed with Ca soon thereafter and it was she , not Ryan, who came first. Ryan is still sick, but he put her life before his although he was doing what he could for himself as well.

There was so much more to Farrah that the beautiful blond Charlie's Angel. She was a sculpture a woman who set her mind to things and did them. She faced fear and took it on bravely. She set high standards for herself, was an artist too. She was someone every woman wanted to be and every man wanted to know. The All-American beauty with a head of hair and hairstyle that became legendary.

Out of curiosity is there anyone here on Palinstravels who doesn't not know Farrah? I know she was a huge part of American culture for many years.

I'm so grateful that she made that documentary. Having had to support friends who have lost other friends and relatives to cancer, I personally am really tired of storylines that treat life altering illnesses as glamorous. She showed the truth. God bless!

On a lighter but realted note about her influence: dating myself here, I was in junior high when "charlie's angels" was on.I desparately wanted to have my pudys self transformed into her. I tried to cut my hair like hers. Now you know who invented brush cuts for women. ;)

May Farrah rest in peace. A very brave lady.

I didn't know that Ryan O'Neal had leukaemia. How tragic for both of them.
Re: Farrah by kazzzz on 28 June 2009 1:19am
Ohh Ryan was ill too? I didn't know that. They seemed a very devoted couple. I heard they were planning their wedding after over 30 years together but didn't make it, that's a shame.

I miss her already.

Re: Farrah by tucsonmike on 28 June 2009 11:59am
Farrah reminded me of a friend and former boss the same age I think is deceased. (I hope I am wrong, but my gut says no).

RIP, Farrah, another icon of my generation.
