    Anal cancer is caused by HPV. Whether it was Ryan or some other guy many years ago, she received this virus which commonly causes gential warts but is the cause of cervical and anal cancer. This is what killed her. It sure sounds like her spirit and life (soul) was taken from her by Ryan et al – but the casue of the cancer is very clear – HPV.

    Why can't we just let these people be rather than keep bringing them up. Same with Michael Jackson. They're dead... Let them RIP.

    I remember watching the 1st episode of Charlies Angels. It became my favorite show! It was so exciting to see these beautiful women as detectives, nabbing the bad guy with their martial arts skills, & brain power. It was truly a womens empowerment show. Of course Farrah was the breakout star, & even today is pictured in the ads, not Cheryl Ladd who was on for 4 seasons, as opposed to Farrahs 2! Her hairdo also became iconic, me, my sisters & all our friends sported "the Farrah" as best we could. She was too young to die & so was MJ, but maybe they kept eachother company during the transition! Miss you, Farrah!!

    Heres the thing that i don't get, and i love her btw ..she stays with ryan for 33 years..and even over the last years of her life she wanted him there and he was..but yet she leaves him nothing but a fu in her will . She stuck it to him why? if he was that bad then why was she with him all these years and at the end too i don't get it..she went hating him.. maybe so much hate inside isn't a good thing .

    Umm, hello? Doesn't anyone remember me? 6 million dollar man? Farrah Fawcett-MAJORS ring a bell? I'm here to settle the dispute. What made America fall in love with Farrah? Her hair dummy. It was her hairdo. Take her hair off and see how much you remember. Her hair takes up half the area of her famous poster! She was the Breck HAIR girl, not the Penthouse body girl. Although she did appear in Playboy magazine, but mostly for nostalgia. The centerfold was wayyyy hotter. he he
