Remembering Those Super-Stars that have Passed

In recent weeks we have lost several Super-Stars that have helped mold the entertainment industry and have made our lives richer by sharing their lives with us.  Many of us grew up watching Kung-fu, Charlie’s Angels, The Tonight Show, The Streets of San Francisco and The Jackson’s as Michael sang ABC & 123 and more recently Billy Mays pimping OxyClean on his infomercials.

These people helped to shape a generation and they will be missed.

Farrah Fawcett – THE QUEEN OF STARS

Farrah Fawcett’s tragic death continues to be in the shadows as news of Michael Jackson’s death consumes the medias attention. 

Posted today, were comments made by younger adults that subdued Farrah’s life and contributions in comparison to that of the “King of Pop”.   Despite the 12 year difference in age between these two icons and the lack of exposure of the younger generation to Farrah’s work, she is still one of the brightest stars among many.

The posts that I read today describes Farrah as being best known for her role as Jill Monroe on the 1976-77 debut season of Charlie’s Angels(she made a few guest appearances in seasons three and four), Fawcett also won critical acclaim for a television movie The Burning Bed as well as both a movie and stage performance in Extremeties.  The Farrah I remember was so much more. 

Farrah Fawcett, formally known as, Farrah Fawcett “Majors” was the without  a doubt the most beautiful woman of the 70’s and 80’s.  Very few males, young or old, did not have or at least at one time oogle over the beautiful actress’s famous poster or fall in love with her beaming smile.

Although she had been with Ryan O’Neal for 29 years the two were never married.  I like to think that she never really got over Lee Majors.  Lee Majors, who no one has really mentioned since her death, and the beautiful actress, were at one time, the most popular couple in Hollywood.  Everyone wanted to be either Lee or Farrah.  I remember being angry when Lindsay Wagner was paired with Lee Majors for the role of Jaime Sommers in the “Six Million Dollar Man”.  When the two divorced I was devastated!

Farrah began a hair style that swept the world.  Every woman, under age 65, I think, either had or tried to have “Farrah Hair”!  Even some boys attempted incorporating Farrah’s hairstyle into their own, sporting “Fly Backs”!   

She did do a very tasteful feature for Playboy Magazine.  She was Beautiful, Poised but Sassy.  She never gave paparazzi shots of her pantiles crotch as she got out of a vehicles wearing mini-skirts.  She was never in Rehab, never shaved her head.  She was never found passed out drunk on the sidewalk.  She was a lady and a real Star when being a Star meant having talent and not just drawing attention to yourself. 

Farrah was the sweetheart of the world for years.  Many of the younger generation have not had the opportunity to experience the ( Farrah Phenomenon ) therefore do not understand what she meant to us all.  I hope that this post, in her honor, will in some way make up,  just a little for the lack of attention that her death has received during her passing.  If Michael Jackson was the “King of Pop”, then Farrah was certainly the “Queen of Stars”.

R.I.P. Angel

farrah-fawcettFarrah Fawcett passed away this morning at 9:28 AM.  At her side were long time companion Ryan O’Neal and good friend Alana Stewart.  Unfortunately, son, Redmond is still incarcerated with multiple drug charges and was not at her side. 

Farrah’s death occured just shy of 6 weeks after her documentary Farrah’s Story was aired.  The documentary was filmed with a hand held camera and showed her courageous and painful battle against anal cancer. 

Farrah’s Story is being considered for an Emmy Award for outstanding nonfiction special.  Farrah has been nominated three times over her three decade career and the award has always eluded her.  Rumour is now that she will win the coveted award posthumously.  I am always saddened when people recognize people after their death.  Life is for living, loving and sharing.  Why wait until it’s too late to share?

Farrah's Decision

farrah-fawcettAfter the release of Farrah’s Story last Friday, the blog and gossip world is alive with the questions – When Farrah was first diagnosed with anal cancer did she sign her death warrant when she refused chemo?  Did she put vanity over her health regarding her decisions to keep her signature locks and refusing surgery? Surgery would have left her with a colonoscopy bag. 

Maybe she did, and I will go on record stating that it was her decision to do so.  I’m sure that she knew what the risks were, but inadvertently thought that the outcome would be “different” for her..  That she would beat the odds.  Farrah will pay the ultimate price for her decisions…her life, but who’s to say the outcome would be any different if she made different decisions.  We can’t go through life second guessing ourselves, our first guesses at what to do are difficult enough.  I’m sure we all would do some things differently if given the chance.  I sincerely hope that the public doesn’t turn on Farrah at her time of need because of this. 

Having suffered from breast cancer myself, the choices you have to make can be very scary.  Oncologists push chemo at patients regardless of the consequences.  Their goal is to save a life regardless of the quality.  I have personally seen chemo treatments kill people in long drawn out ways.  Again this is a personal choice or quantity of life over quality of life.  I would never beseech anyone for making that decision.   I, myself, believe in quality of life over quantity, once again a personal decision.

The bigger questions here is why does society judge people on their appearances?  Getting a few gray hairs? No problem he’s some hair color.   Showing a few wrinkles? No problem here’s some botox.   Overweight? Take these pills.  A colonoscopy bag? No Way.   I’ve heard a few comments from women who say they would have made the exact decisions that Farah did.  Beauty at all cost.
