  • Farrah's gone ...

    I just read about it over at IACOJ.

    For some reason this one is hitting me hard. She was just such a beautiful person.

    Goodbye, Farrah. We will never forget you. Rest peacefully in the arms of the angels.

    Farrah Fawcett dies of cancer, age 62

    More Images » Farrah Fawcett in classic pin-up mode in her prime. She died Thursday after a long battle with cancer, her spokesman said. She was 62.
    Photograph by: Handout, FilesFrom an iconic poster to a hit television series to an infamous appearance on a popular talk show, Farrah Fawcett was in the public eye for more than three decades.


    She died Thursday three years after being diagnosed with anal cancer. She was 62.


    "After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away," Fawcett's long-time companion, actor Ryan O'Neal, said in a statement.


    "Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world."


    Long before she starred in countless testosterone-fuelled fantasies, Fawcett was a student in Corpus Christi, Tex., where she lived with her parents, James and Pauline, and older sister Diane.


    At W.B. Ray High School, Fawcett held the title of "Most Beautiful Student" for all four years. After graduating in 1965, she enrolled at the University of Texas at Austin, planning to major in microbiology. At the urging of a celebrity publicist, she soon headed to California to work as a model.


    Almost immediately, Fawcett started doing advertisements for print and television, and appeared on shows such as The Dating Game and The Partridge Family.


    Her work caught the attention of an Ohio-based poster distributor. They sent photographer Bruce McBroom to her Bel Air, Calif., home and he snapped dozens of shots of Fawcett. For a backdrop, he used an old Indian blanket that had been serving as a seat cover in his car.


    Within months, stores were selling out of a poster showing Fawcett in a red bathing suit, sporting a broad, toothy smile with her head tilted back and her blonde tresses cascading down her shoulders and back. The poster sold a staggering 12 million copies — a total that remains unsurpassed.


    Also in 1976, Fawcett landed a leading role in the television series, Charlie's Angels. Playing a detective alongside Kate Jackson and Jaclyn Smith, Fawcett became a cultural phenomenon. She left the show after just one season. A lawsuit followed and, as stipulated in the settlement, she made several guest appearances on the show in following seasons.


    Some of Fawcett's subsequent work was a critical success. She won three Emmy nominations. The first was for the 1984 television movie The Burning Bed, in which she played a battered wife. The others were for the miniseries Small Sacrifices (1989) and The Guardian (2001). Fawcett also played a rape victim in the stage and movie versions of Extremities.


    She also won critical praise for her performance in the movie The Apostle (1997), starring opposite Robert Duvall.


    In 1995, Fawcett posed topless in an issue of Playboy magazine. More than four million copies were sold, making it the best-selling issue of the decade. She returned to the pages of Playboy two years later, at the age of 50. That issue also became a top seller.


    In her later career, Fawcett also caused a stir with a 1997 appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. She seemed dazed and confused throughout the interview and became the butt of countless jokes.


    Fawcett also made headlines for her personal life. From 1973 to 1982, she was married to Lee Majors, known for his role in the television show, The Six Million Dollar Man. She then started a relationship with O'Neal.


    The union produced a son, who was born in 1985. Redmond O'Neal has struggled with addictions and has been arrested several times. In April 2009, he was charged for bringing drugs to a jail. At the time, he was out on bail in another case.


    In October 2006, Fawcett revealed she was suffering from anal cancer. After undergoing chemotherapy and surgery, she declared herself cancer free in early 2007. But the cancer returned a few months later and Fawcett travelled to Germany for alternative treatment. Her ordeal was recorded for a possible documentary.


    Fawcett was admitted to hospital in Los Angeles in early April 2009 amid rumours cancer had spread to her liver.

      If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

        It appears that way, but his death has not been confirmed by UCLA Medical Center.

        Depends which news outlet you're watching/reading. Some are confirming, some are not.

        What a bizarre day.

          OK there's a family spokesman (Brian Oxman) who has spoken with family members at the hospital. So I guess it's official now.

          Scrap that, Brian just said he could NOT confirm that Michael is dead.

                  I didn't come up with anything, Brian.

                  I figured the three were Ed McMahon, Farrah and Michael.

                    I did a google search for "Jeff Goldblum dead" and it comes up with some links, but nothing I have access to at work. Word around here is that it is just a rumor and had no truth to it...........

                        RIP Ms. Fawcett.

                        A friend of mine told me her poster was standard issue in every male's dorm during the 70's.

                        They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

                        I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.
