Farrah Fawcett, the innocent sexy athletic Catholic Texan pin-up star with trade mark curls, wave, and full head of golden sun kissed hair sparked television interest through commercials. Farrah and Joe Nameth completed a commercial together as viewed through YouTube.com. Farrah also dabbled in toothpaste commercials then went onto becoming a serious love interest to marrying Steve Majors while the 6 Million Dollar Man was being born.
Farrah had sold 12 million copies of her pin-up poster, not bad for one photo. During this time Farrah was an angel on Charlie’s Angels. As Farrah had gotten $5,000 a week, Lee Majors racked in $50,000 a week, as claimed through A & E’s Farrah Fawcett Biography. After the marriage to Lee Majors fell apart, Farrah and Ryan O’Neal began a romance that would change Ryan O’Neal for life.
Ryan O’Neal was a ladies man, never without one, just make it a double kind of guy. However, once he began a serious relationship with Farrah, his “loose” days were over, as he remained by her side for the most part. They argued, things would get out of hand yet it would mend itself since they both gave it time then made each other laugh. It was said that when Ryan walked into a room, Farrah’s eyes would light up.
Extremeties was shown in New York with Sigourney Weaver as the main character. Sigourney was leaving as questions swirled surrounding hiring Farrah, however once she began to act, she blew them away. Something that the stars of California look upon as a great act by anyone that can handle it, New York circuit and Broadway. The public loved it, the reviews reflected a huge hit.
Farrah’s character is that of a woman which had a choice, to become a victim of an intruder, or turn the tables and make the intruder the victim. Farrah did so well that not soon after, she directed a masterpiece that many feared would flop although it turned into an Emmy nominated piece, The Burning Bed. I have viewed this piece in the past and must say that Farrah nailed the part of a beaten woman that feared an abuser and retaliated. One of the strongest abusive movies to date.
Other movies Farrah participated in consist of Nazi Hunter, Poor Little Rich Girl, The Barbara Hutton Story, Margaret Bourke-White, and The Beate Klarsfeld Story.
Farrah also had another plan of hers that hatched to reflect that no matter what age you are, you can still be interestingly fun. Farrah began body painting, nothing too strange. Farrah would slap some paint on a walled canvas and use her body (not nude) to make shapes and designs. And then there was David Letterman.
David Letterman was surprised to see that Farrah pointed to his backdrop city. Why did she do that? Farrah simply noticed how pretty it was and she was not expecting it which left her speechless for one split second. Just enough time for David Letterman to over-dramatize what occurred. Farrah was also tired that night with little sleep, but Letterman did not care, he used it for entertainment means to grab more viewers. Dave joked of possible drugs she might have been taking. Farrah Fawcett did not take drugs when going on The Late Show with David Letterman. Farrah lived through those moments in her life, always a survivor as seen in her future.
Farrah is known to most as a very fun, light spoken, silly, interesting, calm, soft woman with highlighted hair of curls and waves.
Farrah Fawcett with Ryan O’Neal and some close friends, including that of Alana Hamilton, Rod Stewart’s ex-wife, recorded Farrah’s slow decline through a three year battle against tumors and anal cancer with shots by Alana Hamilton.
To see anyone pass by way of cancer is never easy. Sometimes it takes documentaries, such as this, to bring enough awareness in prevention rather than being declined for treatment, by which Farrah was declined treatment when there was nothing more the medical field could do for her.
Farrah’s elder sister Diane Fawcett Walls died of lung cancer just before Diane turned 63-years-old, as Farrah is now 62-years-old. A dark mark within a pattern when it comes to cancer in families. Farrah’s battle is coming to an end.
Farrah is bed-ridden, sedated, and not of herself as seen on the strong two hour documentary that aired tonight on NBC.
Farrah Fawcett just celebrated her 62nd birthday on February 2nd of this year. Still quite young to die. Farrah Fawcett will sadly be missed.
