Goodbye, Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009)

Some of us found you beautiful, some of us found you desirable (admit it, guys), some of us felt so sorry for you. I mourn a woman who was so full of earthly life and who's died at only 62 years old. For anyone who thought she was 'just fluff', see THE BURNING BED.
I feel sad that the media and those around her will be showing such personal moments on television tonight, care of Barbara Walters, who just said "...her son Redmond, who's in jail for drug abuse." (Ms. Walters, people don't go to jail FOR drug abuse, he broke the law in his abuse of drugs). Ryan O'Neal allowed cameras where some of us will feel very, very uncomfortable. That poor woman suffered terribly and I wish they would cancel the program and let people just remember her beauty and vitality. She deserves that. They say she was very courageous these last sick years. I really admire that. May she rest in peace.

I had that Farrah Fawcett poster on my bedroom wall as a kid.

Jungle Mom said...

I remember that poster too. I remember having to have 'wings' for bangs, like hers. So sorry she died so young.

I won't watch that, I prefer the memories I already have.

Ed McMahon
Farrah Fawcett
Michael Jackson..what a SHOCK.

I'm very sorry to hear about her death. Very sad. Michael Jackson was shocking today. I feel sorry about that, too, but in a different way. His life seemed like such a sadness.

You're right about The Burning Bed. I saw it several years ago - on Lifetime, I think. Fantastic piece of acting she did in that.

One can always be thankful that a fellow human being is no longer in pain. May they all rest peacefully now.

My wife bought me the poster of Farrah.


It was the poster of Loni Anderson from WKRP in Cincinnati that I wanted.

To this day I don't know if it was an honest mistake or a statement she was making.

Rest in peace, Farrah.

Rest in

Ah, Warren is here at Z's..BLISS!
That is a funny story, Warren......
so you think Loni's prettier than Farrah was? Not me! But, what does this girl know?!

She gave her cancer QUITE a fight....I just wish it ended better.

Warren said...

Subjectively, yes I believe Loni's prettier, not that Farrah wasn't pretty. I've always been more attracted to a fuller figured woman.
