Farrah Fawcett (1947-2009)

One of Charlie's original Angels is now an angel herself.
Farrah Fawcett, 62, died earlier today in Santa Monica, California, after she lost her long and much publicized battle with Cancer.

Many teenage boys had Farrah's famous red swimsuit poster (shown at right) on their wall in the late 70's and early 80's. I might have been one of them.

Fawcett gained fame with 1976's smash television show "Charlie's Angels," starring along with Kate Jackson, Jacklyn Smith and the voice of Charlie, John Forsythe. She surprisingly left the series after the first season to pursue a film career which never really took off. She did earn an emmy nomination for the made for television movie "The Burning Bed" (1984), in which she played an abused wife.

CNN is sharing quotes from friends who knew and worked with Farrah, including her Angels co-stars, Smith and Jackson.

Last year I bought the first and second seasons of Charlie's Angels on DVD. I'll bet that DVD sales of that show will increase in the next few days due to her passing.

It's so weird: I saw the story about Ryan Oneal planning to marry her and said out loud, "I can't believe she's still alive! The poor thing has suffered so much."

Next day she was dead.
