Late Farrah Fawcett nominated for Emmy

BEIJING, July 18 (Xinhuanet) — Actress Farrah Fawcett was posthumously nominated for an Emmy award on Thursday, according to media reports.

The late actress’ documentary, “Farrah’s Story”, that chronicled her battle with a rare cancer has been nominated for an Emmy for outstanding nonfiction special.

Farrah Fawcett had been previously nominated an Emmy for three times in her career for acting in The Burning Bed (1984), Small Sacrifices (1989) and The Guardian (2004), but never won. She did not live to see this nomination be announced.

Farrah’s long-term partner Ryan O’Neal said: “I know that she is smiling that fabulous smile right now in heaven, and that she is grateful the show has been so well received not only by her peers in the industry but by the public at large.”

Farrah Fawcett died of cancer at 62 on June 25th, 2009.

Close pal to issue Farrah Fawcett book next month

LOS ANGELES – july 14 – A close friend of late “Charlie’s Angels” star Farrah Fawcett will publish her personal diaries about the actress’ three-year struggle with cancer next month.

“My Journey with Farrah: A Story of Life, Love and Friendship,” by Alana Stewart, will come out on Aug. 11 — less than two months after Fawcett succumbed to anal cancer on June 25. The book is thought to be the first insider’s look at Fawcett’s illness.

Stewart, the ex-wife of rocker Rod Stewart and a friend of Fawcett’s for 30 years, said she was encouraged to go into print by Fawcett herself and by Ryan O’Neal, the “Love Story” movie star who was Fawcett’s long time companion.

“Farrah had originally encouraged me to write this book. It was her idea. However, while I was contemplating my decision, her health took a turn for the worse, and I could no longer seek her advice,” Stewart said in a statement.

“So I turned to Ryan O’Neal. He was so positive and so supportive. ‘You have to do it’, he said emphatically. ‘There will be lots of people writing books about her. Yours will be the truth, and it will be a wonderful tribute to her. You have to do it!'”, she said.

A portion of the proceeds will go to the Farrah Fawcett Foundation to support cancer research.

Fawcett told her own story in a heart-wrenching video diary of her last three years that was broadcast on U.S. television in May as the actress entered the final few weeks of her life in seclusion at her Los Angeles home.

Alana Stewart’s book will be published by William Morrow, a unit of HarperCollins which is owned by News Corp.

-Oh, and by the way, Farrah Fawcett died, too

Who didn’t have THAT poster?

-Oh, and by the way, Farrah Fawcett died, too

In 1975 a slinky blonde girl was featured in a television automobile advertisement as she drove the vehicle along the beach, only to be met by a cougar. Few people noticed the car or the cat this time, but they noticed the girl, and they tuned in to watch her drop the white evening gown to reveal a swimsuit after all that driving around.

Fast-forward to 1976 and a television drama featuring three females who are, simultaneously, detectives and fashion plates. There was something about that smile, those sea- green eyes, and mane of cascading hair that seemed to go on forever. She was approachable but breathtaking, funny and sweet, a promise of a new type of girl. Males felt IT, and women did not feel threatened. Professionals told us how to have the hair, the body, the smile, but no one could copy her. At one time she was on every magazine cover in the United States. One magazine even made sales by advertising her on the cover and a headline: “in this issue: absolutely nothing on Farrah Fawcett Majors” (New Times 06/77).

Brave girl: whose life hasn’t been touched by cancer?

And now, at 62, cancer has claimed her and taken her away.

But if you haven’t paid attention, not many would know. Farrah Fawcett has been jostled to the back page because she did not sing or dance or make a lot of records. She did not die of a potential drug overdose. She did not have a shocking lifestyle of constant plastic surgery, race change, potential child abuse, or even alleged charges of child molestation (a debate hotly debated, usually not on fact, but on fan loyalty). Nothing, evidently, to make an entire tribute in Life Magazine, not even People.

She had her times. In 1984 she gained attention for portraying a real victim of domestic violence who killed her abuser, and hosted a documentary, “Prisoners of Wedlock.” This was during a time when the words “domestic violence” were not normally a part of the public’s vernacular, much less on television. Yet an abusive relationship went public in 1998 when a boyfriend beat her severely.  She was the epitome of clean living, but her son and long-time lover were arrested on drug charges. No one is perfect, and she knew it. She never claimed to be flawless, and this is one reason fans loved her. Initially, she told us on her last video, she wanted to keep her cancer treatment secret. But life took a different twist, as it always had for her, and she used the opportunity. Cancer is not a pretty pink ribbon and a ‘fun run.’ She bravely showed the world all of the warts: no makeup, no hair, no pretty clothing or airbrushing. Who else has done this? Fans loved her even more.

The girl from Texas grew to be the woman whose poster – THAT poster –was also a talented artist, coauthoring a book and publicly showing her work, some of which has been featured in her films. She opted to play women who dared, such as Margaret Bourke-White, and women who tried, such as Barbara Hutton.And now she is gone, out like a comet, and appears to have been shoved to the back page because of the date she died.

Farrah, your fans will miss you. Merriam-Webster’s definition of a hero is “admired for (their) achievements and noble qualities … one that shows great courage…” Know that you will always be on the front page for us.
