I just got word that Farrah Fawcett died today after a long battle with cancer. She died at the St. Joseph Health Center in Los Angeles. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.
She was only 62 years old. She leaves behind her 24 year old son Redmond whom she had with Actor Ryan O'Neal, who she has had an off again, on again relationship with for over 30 years. The last few years of her life, Ryan has not left her side, and I read recently that he asked her again recently to marry him, and this time, she finally agreed!! I suppose this was a little late in coming.
She was definitely an icon, and probably the best selling poster girl of all time, with her red bathing suit and big hair, and super white teeth! I remember every single boy I knew had that poster!!
This is sad news, for sure......
