R.I.P. Farrah Fawcett

Sad news:  Farrah Fawcett passed away today at St. John’s Health Center in Los Angeles after a lengthy battle with cancer.  She was 62.

The Charlie’s Angels star revealed she had anal cancer in 2006. The following year, she held a press conference to announce she was in remission, but her cancer returned shortly after.

After undergoing alternative treatments in Germany, the actress was treated at an L.A.-area hospital in April when her cancer spread to her liver.

“I’m holding on to the hope that there is some reason I got cancer and that there is something, that may not be very clear to me right now, that I will do,” Farrah said during an interview for the documentary Farrah’s Story chronicling her three-year battle with the disease.

Farrah is survived by her son, Redmond O’Neal, 24, and a truly enviable hair legacy.

May her feathered ‘do live on forever!

A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
