“What bothers me the most is that there was turmoil during my love affair with Farrah. A lot of it caused by my family, by my kids. All of them. Particularly Tatum. I just think that if [Fawcett] had never met us, would she still be alive today? Because nobody knows what causes cancer, do they really?”
— Hollywood dads keep it classy, don’t they? Ryan O’Neal gives Michael Lohan/Richard Heene/Joe Jackson a run for their money with this WTF comment about his daughter Tatum, on Monday’s episode of “Piers Morgan Tonight.” I don’t disagree that drug addicts — which Tatum O’Neal was — are soul-sucking sources of stress. But suggesting she caused his beloved’s cancer? That’s beyond-the-pale harsh. [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

If you’ve been worrying about what Farrah Fawcett is up to on the other side, you can ask Tori Spelling. I’m sure it’s no coincidence that just in time for the release of her new memoir, Uncharted TerriTori [Worst book name ever. -- Editor], she’s coming forward to talk about her otherworldly chitchat with Farrah. Apparently, Tori was trying to get in touch with her deceased father, Aaron Spelling, with the help of a medium, when Farrah stopped by for a surprise visit. The former angel, who knew Tori well while she was alive, begged Tori to deliver important messages to her family. Tori compiled all of Farrah’s detailed communication into a letter that she actually gave to Ryan O’Neal. She never heard back from him, though. Gee, I wonder why? [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
If you made it through the entirety of the Oscars last night, you probably noticed something missing. Well, two things missing. During the annual memorial montage, two bold-faced names who passed away this year were conspicuously absent—Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur. Friends and admirers of Fawcett’s have been taking to Twitter to protest the decision. “Where was Farrah Fawcett? She should have been included,” wrote Jane Fonda. “No Farrah in the memorial. They have a whole lot of ‘splaining to do,” chimed in Roger Ebert.

Perhaps you were outbid when trimmings of Elvis’ hair went on sale last year—$15,000 is a lot of money to pay for a clump of hair. But do not fear. You can still own a trimming from one of the most famous heads of all time. A website called HunkWithJunk.com is selling what they claim is a lock of Farrah Fawcett‘s iconic feathered hair—bidding is starting at the bargain price of $1,000. “For real this one time Novelty item from 70′s,” the site reads. “Sadly takes on new meaning after the Passing of our beloved Angel! Here and available for a limited time only! Someday the technology will be available, and you might be able to create your very own angel.” Egads. All we can say is, don’t trust an auction site that (a) suffers from random capitalization and (b) has the word “hunk” in its handle. We highly doubt that this is actual Farrah hair. Not to mention that the whole thing is just incredibly tacky, considering that Farrah passed away this summer after a long, grueling battle with cancer. “Wow, I am stunned,” said Farrah’s hair stylist, Mela Murphy, after being told about the auction. “I hope this person is not trying to be funny.” So agreed.
