Just heard on the radio that she has passed.
Charlie has lost an angel.

RIP.

At least she's no longer suffering.

Farrah Fawcett Has Died

Quote:
Farrah Fawcett Has Died


ET has the latest...

Farrah Fawcett died this morning at 9:28 at the St. Joseph Health Center in Los Angeles after a courageous and lengthy battle with cancer. She was 62.

The '70s style icon and "Charlie's Angels" star was born in Corpus Christi, Texas on February 2, 1947 and attended the University of Texas at Austin. She got her first career break in the late 1960s, appearing in TV commercials and then guest-starring on TV shows such as "I Dream of Jeannie," "The Flying Nun" and "The Partridge Family." She also appeared on several episodes of "The Six Million Dollar Man," starring husband Lee Majors. The couple married in 1973 but separated in 1979, divorcing in 1982. Afterwards, Farrah began a tempestuous, on-and-off relationship with actor Ryan O'Neal, and the pair had a son, Redmond O'Neal, in 1985.

In 1976, Farrah's celebrity status skyrocketed after she posed in a red bathing suit with a bright smile for an iconic poster that would go on to sell millions of copies, coupled with her debut that fall as Jill Munroe on Aaron Spelling's "Charlie's Angels." Hugely famous, her feathered hairstyle look became an international trendsetter and she even marketed her own shampoo.

After appearing as a regular on "Charlie's Angels" for only one season, Farrah made a bid to be taken more seriously, starring off-Broadway in Extremities and later making a film version which garnered her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. She also was acknowledged with Globe and Emmy nominations for "The Burning Bed" and "Small Sacrifices," among other serious TV movie projects.

She made her mark on the big screen, starring in such films as 'Logan's Run,' 'The Cannonball Run,' 'Saturn 3,' 'Dr. T and the Women,' 'Man of the House' and 'The Apostle.' Other TV appearances included the short-lived sitcom "Good Sports" with O'Neal, "Ally McBeal," "Spin City" and her own reality series, "Chasing Farrah," culminating in the poignant "Farrah's Story" this year, documenting her brave battle with cancer.

She was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, Farrah was actively involved in charity work with the Cancer Society and had also campaigned against domestic violence, a theme tied to "The Burning Bed" and 'Extremities.'

She is survived by her 24-year-old son, Redmond, and her longtime friend and companion, O'Neal.

That's too bad, but in a way it's relieving and I'm glad she's no longer suffering. I watched that special the other day and it was pretty hard to think of her in that condition. RIP Farrah.

I only hope that I would be as courageous and strong as she was in that situation.

I had that poster on my wall as a kid.

Sad day indeed.

I hope she & O'Neal were able to get married finally - I read an interview Monday I think that quoted him as saying she'd finally agreed to it & they wanted to have the ceremony as soon as she was able.

RIP Farrah.

R.I.P. Farrah. My mom's a cancer survivor and a huge Charlie's Angels fan, and we both watched her documentary last month. Her bravery and positive attitude were inspirational and helped her hang on as long as she did. It's so sad that Redmond couldn't be with his mom in her final moments. I hope he, Ryan, and her dad can be comforted that she's no longer suffering.
