Report: Last rites given to Fawcett
UPI ^ | Published: June 25, 2009 at 8:29 AM

Posted on 06/25/2009 8:07:42 AM PDT by Perdogg

Last rites have been administered to ailing U.S. actress Farrah Fawcett, said a posting on what describes itself as "the official blog for Farrah Fawcett."

The 62-year-old "Charlie's Angels" and "The Burning Bed" actress has been battling cancer for about three years.

"Farrah is holding on and has been given last rites," said a Wednesday posting on Hitman PR's blog, which carries a heading that describes it as the "official blog for Farrah Fawcett... and Greg Lott, Farrah's business partner and friend, written by Allen S. Miller, publicist, Hitman Public Relations."

I read that Ryan O’Neill wanted to marry her after all these years. If he really valued her, he should have done it before.

"Farrah is in intensive care and is supported by Catholic priests, consistent with her faith," the Web site said. "It is time now to make contact with your God and say a prayer."

TMZ said Wednesday night Fawcett is "reportedly close to death" and her family members are gathering to say their final goodbyes. Prayers for Farrah and her family.

Actually, from what I have read, he has asked her for YEARS to marry him and she always said No. He asked again recently and she finally said Yes. And now she’s near death.

Farrah was a big part of our culture when I was a kid and she will be missed.

It may be her fault. I don’t know. She had married Lee Majors so she must not have been against marriage. But then, who knows. Hollywood types have all different kinds of reasons for not marrying.

You're not wrong. But what if she didn't want to marry him?

In any case, better late than never.

this is so sad. i just heard that ryan o neal asked her to marry him at the end of her life—is that still going to happen? the Church doesn’t usually give the last rites until you are pretty close to going to be with the Lord.

Prayers for Ms. Fawcett. Seems to be a new trend of hearing blow by blow accounts of celebrities medical demise. (Fawcett, Swayze) Used to be that you just read their obituary i.e. I just don’t get it.

Ryan would never marry her. Even after having a child. She pretended it was her idea so she would look like the one with the power. She wasn't.

Ryan O'Neal is an ex-gang member who never should have been in main stream society. He's a pig.

He told Barbara Walters that they were finally marrying. I believe that he meant that. It doesn’t matter now who the holdout was.

It matters a little bit, since he made himself "Executive Producer" on Farrah's Story and the marriage gimmick would really pay-off Farrah's Story, Part 2. Which he has already pitched to ABC.

And as her husband he would own the rights to her image, her estate and all earnings from her name.

Trust me, he's a pig.

Nothing like a snide remark when someone is on their death bed.

Shows your class, or more appropriately, your lack of it.

Show where I dishonored her. I said If he really valued her, he should have done it before.

Being a woman, I object to men using them. If they are good enough to live with and give you children, they are good enough to have your name.

Isn't it interesting that it's MEN who object to my saying he should have married her sooner.

It’s always nice to hear from such close confidantes of the subject of the thread, providing us with background we could get from no other source.

How long have been in Farah’s inner circle such that you are able to post with such certainty about Farah’s state of mind?

If you couldn't have her trademark smile, you certainly could try to have her feathered hairdo.

She certainly seemed to live life on her own terms as exemplified by her cutting her iconic hair. Seems that she wanted to be in control of even that and not give in to the cancer. I admire that.

"... Fawcett was forced to shave off her trademark locks due to a stronger chemo treatment (which, after some advice, she allowed Alana to film). Farrah sat in her bathroom with her stylist as large clumps of hair fell out which left her with no choice but the inevitable, shave it all off. Ultimately, she left only her bangs and even joked with one of her oncologists saying, "You weren't going to be happy till you got my hair." Unfortunately, her decline came rapidly as another experimental, 20 hour chemo, proved to be ineffective."

Godspeed Farrah.
