We lost one this week, guys and gals. It's hard to believe that Farrah Fawcett is dead at her age. From all accounts she fought the Cancer to the very end. For any of us that have either had a family member fight that battle, or have fought it themselves, we know that's a tough row to hoe.
You're seeing alot of pictures of Farrah on news sites and blogs, so it didn't take me long to decide against having her as this weeks Girl Friday. I had a crush on her as a kid, just like most boys my age. Even had the ubiquitous poster on the wall of my bedroom.
But my favorite "Angel" wasn't Farrah.
It was, and ALWAYS will be: Jaclyn Smith:
She's a Texas Girl, born in Houston in 1945.
She was obviously beautiful, but not in the artificial way alot of Hollywood stars were back in the late 70's and early 80's. She just seemed like a normal, everyday person - who also happened to be one of the most gorgeous women on Television at the time.
And today?.... Wonder how she's doing at 63 years old?
That pic was taken in August of last year. No airbrushing, and if she's gone under the knife to stay looking that good - she has to have the best surgeon on the planet, 'cuz it sure looks natural to me.
She's had her own bout with Cancer, and seems to have come out on top. I hope she gets to stay around a long time.
