Charlie's Blond Angel dies at 62

Postby Metroid » Thu Jun 25, 2009 2:34 pm

Now I can't pick her in my draft. :,-(

Seriously though she truly was a pop icon. I have fond memories of watching Charlies Angels reruns as a kid.

RIP Farrah Fawcett

LOS ANGELES – Farrah Fawcett, the "Charlie's Angels" star whose feathered blond hair and dazzling smile made her one of the biggest sex symbols of the 1970s, died Thursday after battling cancer. She was 62.

The pop icon, who in the 1980s set aside the fantasy girl image to tackle serious roles, died shortly before 9:30 a.m. in a Santa Monica hospital, spokesman Paul Bloch said.

Ryan O'Neal, the longtime companion who had reunited with Fawcett as she fought anal cancer, was at her side, along with close friend Alana Stewart, Bloch said.

"After a long and brave battle with cancer, our beloved Farrah has passed away," O'Neal said. "Although this is an extremely difficult time for her family and friends, we take comfort in the beautiful times that we shared with Farrah over the years and the knowledge that her life brought joy to so many people around the world."

I doubt there will be much unhappiness when Jane Fonda finally kicks the bucket. But Farrah dominated hot chick drafts for many years in her day.

If I can pick up his stream of consciousness, it may not have been Jane Fonda but Farrah Fawcet died from a long battle with cancer. It was anal cancer. So that may be where the connection lies.
