My Angel

Who did you have a crush on when you were either a kid or a teenager? What celebrity did you have a crush on growing up?

Boys aren’t the only ones who had crushes on female celebrities. Girls and young women have crushes on male celebrities.

In the fifties, young women were in love with Elvis, my mother included.

In the late 60’s and early 70’s it was David Cassidy from the Partridge Family that teenage girls fell for and fell in love with.

Most recently, it was Justin Bieber turn to turned young girls head and heart. He didn’t just turned their heads with his looks. He also turned old pervert on as well.

Now to the reason for this picture and blog.

When I was a young boy, I had a huge crush on Farrah Faucet. She was my favorite angel on Charley’s Angel. Like many young boys, I had her poster up on my wall in my bedroom and fantasied about her.

Some boys may had a crush on Bo Derek from the movie, “10”. She didn’t holds a candle to Farrah.

It was her beautiful brown hair, her beautiful smile and smoking hot body that turned me on as a pre-teen boy. I mean, look at her picture. Wasn’t she just smoking hot?

At the time that she was starring on Charley’s Angels, she was also married to actor, Lee Major; who starred in the “6 Million Dollars Man.” Now Lee became jealous of her newfound fame; as she was becoming as popular if not more as him. They eventually were divorced; but it wasn’t a horrible divorce. I mean, they remained friends; which doesn’t usually happened in a divorce.

She was only on Charley’s Angels for one season; but her fame continue shining long after. Even though, she was a sex symbol in Hollywood, she wanted to be more than just a sex symbol. She wanted to stretch her acting ability to prove that she could do it. One of her biggest role was in a made-for-TV movies, “The Burning Bed.” It was a true story based on a wife who burned her abusive husband to death. She was able to stretch her acting with that role and prove that she was more than just a pretty face and a sex symbol.

She also did Broadway and a the movie, “The Apostle”, starting Robert Duvall.

She was involved with Ryan O’Neal; who happened to had been friends with Lee Major. They had a son together named, Redmond. Like any of Ryan O’Neal’s children, Redmond also had his shares of problems. I have to admit, Redmond does look like Ryan.

The love affair between Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Faucet was very much similar to the movie, “Love Story”, that Ryan co-starred with Ali McGraw. Even though, they had a son, they never married. They were on-again-off-again throughout her life. She had cancer; much the same way as Ali McGraw’s character in Love Story did.

She was born in February and she loss her battle with cancer in February. When she died of cancer, I cried much the same way my mother cried when Elvis passed away.

You can say that I was jealous that Ryan O’Neal had gotten Farrah and not I.

On this Valentine’s Day, did you end up with your first love? Farrah was my very first love, first crush.

Tom Hanks said when he first saw his wife, Rita Wilson on the Brady Bunch, that he was going to marry her. And he did too.

When Brad Paisley first saw Kimberly Williams in the movie, “Father of the Bride.” He also said that he was going to marry her. Guess what, they are also married!
