    Her documentary regarding her battles was breathtaking! I love Farrah so much for her strength. She was such a fighter. So easy to be just a pretty face but she was atropper, a painter, a fighter and so much smarter than anyone imagined. Such an exotic beauty. She was Lebanese interestingly enough but everyone associated her with being this All American girl – but in fact her Dad was 100% Lebonese. That is why she was all American but yet exotic at the same time. I loved Jill on Charlie’s Angels. God bless you Farrah and may God enjoy your pretty smile in heaven. Rest in peace.

  • sweetie

    My thoughts and prayers to her family and friends. I am glad she is in a pain free place now but we will miss her dearly. She was a brave and beautiful lady.
    RIP Angel.

  • marina

    @Jolie hot chin not: really? I did not know that. Then she must have had more or less the same background as Queen Noor of Jordan.
    Farewell to a beautiful actress, now free of pain and suffering.

  • mary

    her son, partner and family have my deepest sympathies. she was only 62 years old. same age as my grandmother; very sad

  • joy

    “”"”Though O’Neal recently said that he and Fawcett had planned to wed, they did not tie the knot. “There just wasn’t time, and Farrah wasn’t in any condition to do it,” says O’Neal. “”"

    I just wish they HAD been able to get married before she passed away. But it wasn’t meant to be.

    Prayers go out to her loved ones.

  • Smilehexe

    Sad to hear she finally lost the battle. Condoles to the family.

  • Ms.JOLIE4ever!

    Very sad news.

  • Lillianne

    Rest in Peace Farrah. You gave us a lot of enjoyment in your short lift.

  • joneblaze

    A lot of people wrote Farrah Fawcett off as just another silly,sexy,blonde bouncing around on t.v,but she proved she was much more especially in movies like Extremities and The Burning Bed .She proved she was a fighter in those films and in life with her battle with cancer.
    R.I.P Lovely lady

    Farrah was part French, English and Choctaw American Indian. Where did you read that she was Lebanese? Interesting…

  • Nic

    Doesn’t she have a son?
    WHere the F**K was he?
    He should have been there when she died..That is just too sad…
    Her death should haunt him for the rest of his life!!

    She was one of the few stars who had real class. Everyone in high school had her poster. I will always remember her beautiful smile. Rest in peace.

    This makes me sad. My sympathies to her family.

  • a realist

    Rest in peace, Farrah. NO more pain.


    Nic it is hard to come see his mom when he is in prison..Yes they should of let him be there …but instead she had the couple of the
    2009 Ryan and Alana Hamilton… Where were the ANGELS KATE
    AND JACKIE.. Why the people that brought you the documentary..
    Are we going to see another of her dying in her bed her last breathe
    as Alana says something to camera.. wow the people that bring you
    the doc are the ones by her bedside.. Not even telling her dad so
    that he could say goodbye how selfish are these two

  • isabella

    this is really heartbreaking. I wish all the best for her family and may she rest in peace. she will be missed.

  • Farrah remembered

    I am sad today though because Farrah died. Funny thing is she was not my favorite angel during the Charlie’s Angels run… I liked Jaclyn Smith… but now I see that Farrah was the one that was the icon. She had that magnetic something that keeps us all intrigued. There was something very vulnerable about her that made her human. Yet, she was resilient and full of love that shined through somehow. Now, that I look at the old pictures of her that have been flashing on the news, she really did shine in those days. There was something she had that the other “angels” did not have. she had charisma. RIP

  • omggg

    RIP Farrah

    oops.Farrah was part French, English and Choctaw Native American Indian.

    #35 Nic,her son is in prison for drugs and other things.He has a wrap sheet as long as your arm.He was allowed with chains and shakels to see her a few weeks ago.Whether she saw him or not,RyanO’Neal,AlanaStewart, etc., did not say.Read beweteen thelines….FFawcett has been in Stage4, conscious/unconscious about to die for some time now. Hopefully her son with O’Neal will be finished with his time,and can attend her services without chains and shakels.Hopefully,he can she how lived her life and WILL NOW do right life himself. Too bad she did not live to see him living right at last.I think we can say the poor woman gave him chances and help all she could.
    #45, her father is widowed and very aged in his 90′s so maybe his health prevented him for leaving his doctors and taking a 3 1/2 hour flight. She would not have known if he,you,or me was there.
    Maybe he wanted to remember his child as she was when she was alive.We do not know. Her mother passed away and I think her only and elder sister died too.

    Farrah has been dead for a few weeks. Her two best friends, Stewart and O’Neal, were at her side24/7.RyanO’Neal gets points here though he has had problems. Now she is officially dead.
    She is now in good health with her mom and I think her sister passed away.
