Family members and friends gathered to mourn 1970s TV star Farrah Fawcett, who died last week after a long battle with cancer. You can read about the memorial service here.

Reporters were not allowed Los Angeles’ Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels to witness Fawcett’s memorial, but we were outside to catch the casket being brought into the church, and we talked to a couple of fans outside. Click below to watch.







Farewell you brave girl.


I find it refreshing and classy that her funeral service was private and not allowed to be a media circus. Break out your hot rollers and blow dryers, I predict a return of Farrah hair! RIP Farrah.

Its a shame that she gets so little media attention, I know its because of Michael but let’s not forget that she was the dream girl of many men during the seventies.
