Now Farrah Fawcett's producing partner comes out swinging!


While Farrah Fawcett's college sweetheart Greg Lott has been getting lots of attention with his bombshell claims of a secret their secret love affair in the final decade of her life, another close male companion who is about to get his own share of headlines.

Craig Nevius is suing Ryan O'Neal, Alana Stewart and O'Neal's business manager for pushing him aside from the cancer journal documentary he and Farrah were producing for NBC. Though "Farrah's Story" received many harsh, disgusted reviews for its maudlin morbidity, it is up for an Emmy-- as are Farrah and Nevius, who kept his executive producer title.

As the case winds its way to court, Nevius tells his side of the story and much more to Chris Mann on Retroality.tv.


The extensive two-part interview (here and here) contains many insights into Farrah as well as exclusive information about the career plans left unfulfilled, though more interest will likely be placed on Nevius' claim that Ryan O'Neal threatened to kill him.

A taste:

You must feel thrilled (being nominated for an Emmy. Aren’t you?

People say to me: “Congratulations. Are you excited?” But that’s not the right word. I guess I’m more “relieved.” Because when Farrah took a turn for the worse in April, Ryan O’Neal and his business manager banned me from seeing or talking to Farrah ever again.

At the same time, Ryan and Alana Stewart decided it was time for them to come in and “save” the project. And NBC, who had previously been so supportive and promised Farrah that this was her story to tell, supported them 100 percent. I’m sure the network would say otherwise but I believe that it was because they wanted this on the air for May sweeps and didn’t have the star to promote it. So began the “Ryan O’Neal Grieving Widower Press Tour With Special Appearances by Farrah’s Robotic Self-Promoting Best Friend Alana Stewart.”

That was bad enough but then Ryan and Alana did basically the same thing in the documentary itself by inserting those cringe-inducing, self-serving interview sound bytes shot by an unemployed ex-Dateline NBC Producer. I was appalled. But my appall quickly turned to disgust when I saw that Ryan and Alana had secretly shot Redmond (Farrah’s son with Ryan) in chains when he was released from jail for a few hours, under the supervision of two sheriff’s deputies, visiting Farrah—who was unconscious or close to unconscious in her bed. How dare they?

Ryan was not a producer on this program. Alana had refused to sign her co-producer contract because she wanted more money and a better title. Farrah was the boss, and if the boss was unable to function because of a health crisis her authority went automatically to me as per our company’s operating agreement (signed on April 1, 2008).

Ryan didn’t seem to care what any piece of paper said. He demanded that the title of the documentary be changed from A Wing & A Prayer to Farrah’s Story— which, in my opinion, was nothing but a cheap homage to his greatest claim to fame other than dating Farrah: Love Story. Changing the title was also a cruel irony considering if this was really Farrah’s story it would have been broadcast under the original title that Farrah and I chose: A Wing & A Prayer.

How much of the finished product that aired reflected Farrah’s intentions with the project?

Don’t get me wrong, most of the work that Farrah and I did is there. Like the diary narration that I shot with her in my living room. No one else was present. It was just her and her diary—and me and my camera.

It’s just that a lot of our other work was interrupted and sloppily clipped short in order to make room for Ryan’s bad reprisal of his Oliver Barrett role and Alana telling us that “needles are painful.” And for needless inserts of a trip to Mexico and Farrah’s brief experience with an inconclusive test of a new cancer drug. Farrah and I agreed not to include such footage because we had a lot more important, educational and inspiring scenes to include.


The New York Times reviewer Alessandra Stanley wrote, “...it was an exploitative portrait of a celebrity’s fight with cancer... NBC took Ms. Fawcett’s candid video diary and allowed it to be packaged as a generic VH1 Behind the Music” biography—maudlin music, gauzy slow-motion film, and pseudo-revealing interviews with friends, coworkers, doctors and hairdressers reminiscing about a former star.” Yikes.

I can't disagree with the reviewer. That being said, there were scenes that were cut out completely. Scenes that dealt with medical information and issues that Farrah wanted to address in order to start a dialogue that could eventually effect change in our health system. And once again Ms. Stanley nailed it, criticizing the film for what wasn’t there (based on Farrah’s diary narration) and understanding that it was supposed to have been.

She also seemed to distinguish Farrah from Farrah’s Story. She wrote that “the film isn’t as nearly as brave or as serious-minded as its cancer-stricken subject.”

But the film that Farrah and I were close to completing was as brave and as serious minded as she was. Because this project was a total reflection of her—and not Ryan O’Neal or Alana Stewart. And the fact that NBC allowed Ryan and Alana to do what they did, with significant help from an ex, unemployed NBC Dateline producer who Farrah had previously rejected, is still staggering to me. The rest of the reviews I read were as bad if not worse. At that point, I really didn’t think my promise to Farrah—of a nomination much less an Emmy—would come true. But there was one glimmer of hope. Most of the reviewers appreciated Farrah herself. Her bravery.

What changes would you make to NBC’s cut? Would you cut out some of the more graphic “death” scenes?

Absolutely. Because that’s sinking to the levels of the tabloids. It’s what Farrah was against. Like the scene with her son, Redmond, in chains and shackles, when he comes to visit Farrah, who does not appear to be conscious. And the various scenes from her last trip to Germany, which Alana withheld in order to try to get more money and a better credit. Farrah doesn’t appear to be completely lucid in that footage. And since neither Farrah nor I was ever shown that video to approve its inclusion, well, I think it was in bad taste and totally exploitative of everyone.

Doesn’t sound like you’re going to drop your lawsuit anytime soon?

I’m not. I can’t. Farrah trusted me. She was a good partner and a good person. A lot of fun as a friend. She was a talented actress and artist. And an inspiration to millions around the world—not just fans but also her fellow cancer patients and their families.


* * *

Alana ignored Farrah’s wishes as to who she entrusted to make decisions and violated her right to privacy in doing so. Nowhere is that more evident than when she shot Farrah barely conscious— if she was conscious at all— in her bedroom. Her own bedroom. Again, Farrah was fine with having everything (related to cancer) filmed in order to consider its use. But that was only with the knowledge that the footage was going directly to me and no one else, including NBC. It was a betrayal.

* * *

Ryan and I had never fought, at least not to my knowledge. In fact, Farrah was always amazed that we got along because she said that Ryan didn’t like most of the people in her life. Anyway, he was going on and on. But I never raised my voice—again, as far as I was concerned we had nothing to fight about. But Ryan saw it differently. His final words to me that day were the final words he has ever spoken to me: 'If you take me on, I’ll kill you. I’ll kill you in Farrah’s life and then I’ll kill you in real life!' Then he hung up.

POOR Craig! Sucks to be cut out and just keep flapping your gums hoping to elicit ANY sympathy. You got axed so deal with it. FF probably saw you as a leech and a creep, obsessed over her like all the other weirdos in her life.

Get another job and move on. You are just as pathetic as the other freaks in her life.

Anonymous said...

Problem is, Craig has a piece of paper.
It's called the 2008 Sweetened by Risk LLC Agreement and it contains rights and responsibility transfer provisions to Craig if FF became incapacitated, which she did.
If FF thought Craig was a leech and a creep, then the thing to do was to exercise the Voluntary Termination clause in the 2008 Sweetened By Risk agreement, which did not happen.
Instead, a suspicious 'Appointment of CEO' document was produced by somebody with a suspicious alleged FF signature 4 days after FF's son is in open court requesting the court to release him for a death bed visit to his mother, thus clearly indicating that under the 2008 SBR Agreement, those clauses transferring control to Craig became effective.
What Craig gets is a liability judgment for tortious interference from those other freaks in her life, Francis and O'Neal.

YOU GO CRAIG !
Anyone who questions you is either been fired by Farrah, Kicked to the curb by Farrah, or used Farrah.

FIRST FIGHT FOR YOURSELF, Farrah will EXPECT YOU TO KICK ASS-
MUCH APPRECIATION,

Gee, thanks CRAIG for responding as "anonymous." Dude, you are so obvious. Who ELSE would post such as response? Maybe his lawyer, but pretty sure it's him. Ask FF's closest friends and you'll learn that Craig's perception of the relationship ain't what he thought it was near the end. Farrah found him to be too close, too involved and she was over it. Good luck in court Craig. If you were wronged, you deserve to have it right. But, if not, then F off once and for all.

"Virtually everything you read about me that perpetuates negativity has no substance to it whatsoever. Throughout my career, whether I choose to pull back from the public eye or not, they've made up stuff." --Farrah Fawcett to Daily News, October 13, 1999.

Keith Sunde is the guy hiding behind the anonymous blog. He is known around the internet and e-bay as a pyscho who tries to police copyright infringement for Farrah. However, he has never had that authority from Farrah, me or her Lawyers. Keith Sunde and his partner Michael Quick worked for Farrah as her assistants. They were so incompetent that she fired them. They were insensitive during one of her mother's illnesses in Houston. While Farrah and I were there together in Houston they demanded their paycheck and didn't care what the situation was with her mother. Later they called her Father Jim and said they had seen things that might embarrass Farrah. They wanted $4000 to go back to Florida. Her dad said he didn't care what they had. Keith wormed his way back in with Farrah's mother bay sending her Tabloid Magazines when she was 90 years old. Keith is the CLASSY GUY at the funeral with the laminated poster. Also, Keith is with witholding Fight The Fight t- shirts and Bobby Steele photographs that belong to Farrah and the website. They are for charity.

It's a shame that out of every post I've seen about the interview.. people comment about other people that were in FF's life.

Out of all of the articles on FF since her passing, Craig was the only one who didn't shit on her memory.

You're a class act Craig.
I hope you are able to see this through and do Farrah's vision proud.

In Texas, they call people who talk like the 'Boy' "shit kickers", or "kickers" for short.

Guys like the 'Boy' spend their days out in the cow pasture kicking the cow patties.

That's a Texas 'thang' also.

You can't tell from the 'Boy', but there are educated people in Texas.

TEXBOY said...

Yes I have kicked a few pices of COW SHIT- Those are things you have missed in life.
I know the nice feel of oil, slithering down my body, and into a nice little bank account.
I know the smell of a nice little GENERAL STORE- and I might wrangle with a cowboy or 2 on a Friday night, and wake up happy on a Sat morning- So as you go on with your almost true coment , just remember this, I spent my time enjoying, and never really become as educated as 3 people here might seem to be, but being me is a hell of a lot more fun than your dull life. Now let me pull those boots out from under my bed, and find out who they belonge to. SEE BEING ME IS FUN- Oh and the shit I kicked in Ca, and Fl was nothing to the rick shit I kicked here in Texas, that Ca,& Fl shit stinks-
It had to be kicked.

And I thought the flaming comments from the anonymous 'keyboard Rambos' on YouTube were bad.
Good grief, people.

The things people will do just to have a taste of someone else's fame and success are often pretty disturbing, and apparently without realizing it, O'Neal and Stewart showed prime examples of that behavior by injecting themselves into Farrah and Craig's project. It seems like most people just wanted a piece of her (O'Neal and Stewart being the cream of the crop, based on that interview). It's a wonder Farrah Fawcett was able to trust anyone around her. As much as I admire the lady for what she contributed while she was alive, I do not envy what she had to endure from the people around her as a result of that work.

Based on Chris Mann's interview with Craig, it appears that he has a very strong case.
I hope he wins.

The bulk of Craig's comments about Farrah's 'vision' and decisions made by Farrah is hearsay unless Craig was smart enough to document every decision by Farrah with a corresponding signature by her.

Also, the unfinished 'A Wing and a Prayer' cut by Craig might also serve as evidence of Farrah's 'decisions.'

But, Craig's case doesn't solely rely on that. It relies on the status of her failing health and the court's interpretation of clauses in the agreement between Craig and Farrah.

Expressing an opinion is "I really don't care for that person" The stuff on that other blog and here has been beyond hate, even though they state that "they don't hate Ryan or Alana" Explain hate, because your comments and opinions sound like intense personal hate. Do you really think people aren't going to be angry? You have no empathy for others pain. The people who really loved Farrah have a right to be angry and defend their opinion and feelings. They shouldn’t even have to. They are hurting and grieving. Maybe Ryan is loud and boisterous. Maybe Alana came from a poor background and was too needy, but in the end what they went through can only be done out of love, no matter what you think of their way of handling things. If you have never been with a loved one when they die, you have no clue. Farrah hung on for months, fighting with everything she had. I’ve been with people dying of cancer, she is in the least heroic for the fight she waged. There is nothing pretty about death. It is awful to watch. No amount of pain meds stops the pain. Go to a Hospice website and read what actually happens. Transitioning into death is not pretty, it can be downright ugly. At times the patient is coherent, even up to the end. Much of the other time, they are not. You have no clue. So shut your pipe holes and your blantant entitlement to your cruel opinions. What Alana and Ryan, and others went through with Farrah can only be done out of love. There is nothing else that would make anyone sit there and go through that.

Anonymous said...

I agree with the previous anonymous, except that 'love' did not give Ryan and Alana the right to trample on a contract between Farrah and Craig.

They trampled all over the rule of law and will likely pay for doing so.

I am so sick of people hiding behind the loyalty of being by someone's side as they are "dying" and using them for all their worth while holding their hand. Which is most despicable! This sounds like the same blubber Ryan and Alana used when Nevius first tried to malign him in the press. READ MY LIPS-one measure doesn't cancel out dispicable acts! Everyone of you, so called friends of Ryan and Farrah, even Farrah herself KEEP EXCUSING SICK BEHAVIOUR FROM RYAN O'NEAL. Just because he was there for her at the end, You yourself, Alana said that Farrah didn't want him in GErmany because she didn't want to have to "WORRY" ABOUT HIM. A good partner, you DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WNEN YOU ARE DYING, YA DIG? And as far as Anonymous gavie this long pitiful...don't people think that we are grieving...words are hurtful...blah, blah, blah. I mean connect the dots, you blow hards. Don't you thinnk for a minute that people can't figure out that something stank in Denmark at the end. People were cut off, the public wasn't getting much information after the documentary. NOTHING, NOTHING, NOTHING was being said about Farrah's condition. That documenary, even though it wasn't her true vision touched a lot of people and turned people on to Farrah's plight and the ravages of Cancer. But Ryan and Alana were so busy planning their next moves while hodling Farrah's hand, that they couldn't even respect her fans and do the right thing by Farrah. Why as Farrah's so called Best friend, didn't Alana stand up to Ryan and say, Ryan, I can't support you in this because this is absolutely not what Farrah wanted. Why? Because she's a weak individual and was only looking out for herself. Why would she withold tapes and "DEMAND, DEMAND" co-producer's credit and more money unless she got PAID. I can't even phanthom, my best friend is dying and I'm going to hold up something she sweat blood sweat and tears for before I got paid and we are supposed to actually believe the two of them, Ryan and Alana. Don't try to pull that crap here or with some of her fans because we are not IDIOTS. The truth is trickling out slowly but surely and who wouldn't have become close to Farrah, she was a charming, fun vivacious woman. Not all men Mr. O'Neal were salivating over her, but I can guarrantee you that all men wanted to become her friend and actually knew the meaning of the word, even more so than you. These nasty people sound like loyalist to the bloviator, O'Neal. Fat lot we care. I think what was done to FArrah's video diary was dirty. I think what Alana did was dirty and I am hoping that Craig Nevius prevails. Yeah. Let's see who really wins this one Mr. O'Neal and all of your the emperor has no clothes friends! Your 15 minutes were so over a long, time ago, you could have at least went out with some class, but no. That would have been too much like NORMAL!

Hurting and grieving. Were you "hurting and grieving?" when you asked for a producer's credit? Were you "hurting and grieving when you withheld tapes? Were you "hurting and grieving" when you made sure you were recognized as a producer when you didn't even know how to hold a camera? Where was all of the hurting and grieving then? Where was all of the hurting and grieiving when Ryan threatened Nevious? Where was all of the "hurting and grieving" when Ryan disrepected Farrah when she specifically told him...NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! when it came to his ideas about that documentary. Where was all the grieving hand hurting then? Oh I see only when its to your benefit to hide behind it. Don't pull this crap here. Please don't try it. You did it in the press right after Nevius raised hell about it and you're on here doing it now. You know the truth is coming out and again, this has nothing to do with Farrah Fawcett it has everything to do with how you re perceived in the public eye, because you don't want your so called image of being Farrah's best friend and long time lover to be damaged. That's where you're really grieving and hurting, that's where all the pain is coming from truth be told. No body hates Ryan O'Neal or Alana, that is so juvenile to even think that. We hate the acts. We hate the controlling, bullying behaviour. We especially hate people who pose as friends to a dying friend and are not really looking after their dying friends wishes. That's what we hate. I am so pissed off. I am sick to death of hearing...what bad timing to do this...what kind of person is Nevius...Well what kind of person are you two? I just wonder!

And you know what NikkiV, so the F what if you and T-boy are on here all the time. So what if T-boy got it like that. If he can sit home and twittle his thumbs, perhaps he's smart like that that he made soem decent decisions in life and prepared. Who cares? This is a blog. People post on blogs for as long as many times as they want. You all must be kicking butt if someone is so worried about what you write and what you say. NikkiV you dont' have to defend yourself to ANYBODY. You and T-boy were grown up people last time I heard. And apparently if they think you are blogging too much, then hey, they must have time on their hands that their policing everything you say. Bullying tactics don't work with some of us Anonymous, take on somebody that's more your speed. Leave NikkiV and T-boy alone. Just like you are on what ten different sites, blowing your peephole, then they can be too. If you want to defend a bully like Ryan O'Neal who tries to control people and Alana Stewart who is a weak individual that she can't even stand up for what's right or depending how the wind blows then that is your right. We choose to believe Mr. Nevius, his paper work seems to be in order and he has provided sufficient evidence to prove his case. Now...let's see what they've got. Bring it! I'm sick of this. In a way I am so glad that Farrah's not here to witness this. Ii am sure and of course I didn't know her, it would break her heart. And you know you've got a sick mind, because us little Americans dont' all want to be "movie stars." You accused NikkiV of wanting to be "Farrah" pleeze! We are all comfortable in our own skins, what do you want to be Farrah? Is that why you're here? Perhaps thats your baileywick, don't put it on others.

italia said...

One last point...I'm so pissed. I've had best friends over the years that are still my best friends after 30 something years. I am presently involved in a relationship very similar to Farrah and Ryans in terms of years haveing been spent. However, the difference is my life partnern RESPECTS ME!!!!! MY BEST FRIENDS RESPECT ME. Usually you tell your best friend EVERYTHING ABOUT YOUR LOVER. She would know what your heart is really saying bout your work, your life, your children EVERYTYHING. Alana, knew that Farrah trusted Craig. She may not have been privy to the legal details, no reason why she would have been, but she knew what and how Farrah wanted this documentary to be presented and the purpose. So why would Alana "back" Ryan when he sought to change the entire thing around to his liking? Why would she do that. I am very suspect now when they said that they asked Farrah how she liked it after it aired and she said she liked it "Very, Very, Very much...remember that one? I mean she was full of meds. drugs at that point. What did they expect her to say...why was the title changed? Where is this and where is that? What happened to this and what happened to that? Please. Who do they think they are kidding? And we are supposed to back them because they are "hurting and grieviing?" Please can we dispense with the hurting and grieivng defense, its so pathetic. Evernone is hurting and grieving. Craig Nevius is hurting and grieving Jacqueline Smith is hurting and grieving. Everyone is obviously or we wouldnt be on this blog. Those that were close to her and those that only knew her professional personnae. But doing what Mr. Nevius accuses Ryan and Alana of doing is tearing off the blinders of what freindship and being a lover really is. My best friend would never support my lover if he even remotely tried something like this. She'd eat him for breakfast.

The first post saying...you are just as pathetic as the other freaks in her life..." sounds like a person who did'nt respect Farrah at all. How do they characterize "the freaks" in Farrah's life if it is not including them? "Just as pathetic as the other freaks in her life..." Who does that sound like? What did we just read int he Nevius article about that line? Hmmm. They must be very worried about what is written on both sites. They know we've hit home on this one. Say whatever you want to say Anonymous about the people FARRAH CHOSE TO HAVE IN HER LIFE. Guess that includes Ryan and Alana now doesn't it?

italia,
Did you actually witness ANYTHING you say and profess is the truth? Did you SEE abuse to Farrah? Are you friends with ANY of these people? How can you possibly know what is the truth if you weren't there? Just because someone says something on a blog or does an interview, doesn't mean it's gospel.

The courts will decide, and hopefully what ever the outcome, it is what Farrah wanted.

The only thing that really is absolute truth is that Farrah chose to have Alana and Ryan with her, way before she was to ill to make her own decisions. Why does anyone think they have the right to question her decisions on whom she wanted with her?

In total agreement with the last anonymous 6:53. Italia thinks she knows so much because she was a young actress years ago in the
80's and did a movie with Griffin.
She had a bad experience with the family, specifically Ryan according to the story on the other blog several postings back. So now she thinks she is an authority on all of it. Or maybe she still has contact with Griffin, who doesn't seem anything but bitter, and getting his 5 minutes of fame. Though I must say that Italia seems more calm and together than some of the others on that blog. Let the courts sort it out. No one knows the truth except the people who were actually there and I seriously doubt most of these people who are making accusations and comments on these blogs were ever there. It is all based on hearsay and rumors. Truthfully it is no one's business but the parties involved. Not even mine, but sadly even I stopped and looked at the wreck as I passed by. Good Night

You want to know why people believe Craig? "A Wing and A Prayer" had been being advertised for more than a year and a half. It was in production with Craig doing the editing. When Farrah turned everything over to Ryan there is no way she could have know what she was doing. Medication alone will make you unaware of what your signing, what someone is telling you, and you don't remember half of what has happened. Alana and Ryan were at Farrah's side by her choice! She, no doubt, cared/loved them both. But, she also never married Ryan (for good reason) and Alana....what kind of a friend leaves you in a hospital night after night to have an affair with a local in Germany! Where was her head. It was on herself. Don't trust someone that puts themselves first when they are supposed to be with their friend helping them go thru the hell that Farrah no doubt went through.
Yes, the courts will get all straightened out, but there are so many reasons to believe Craig. I could be more convinced. I was a fan of Farrah Fawcett. She was a neat lady and said and did what SHE wanted to do, but in the end....she couldn't control those around her anymore. They seem to have taken advantage and that is why fans are uspset!

Ok. Anonymous, so you've decided to now take me on, I was wondering when you would take that step. Don't try to patronize me with compliments. You and I both know you're full of it. I am not even going to dignify your stupidity. when you are able to really BRING IT with some logical truthfulness, then we can have a dialogue, until then, continue the juvenile intellect that you are displaying here tonight. And yes, Farrah herself spoke of the abuse you idiot with Ryan. So now what, is Farrah a liar and an idiot and a pathetic creature. I think she would know about her own life in the few instances she spoke of it. Ryan himself talked about it just recently with his self promoting interviews in VF and wherever else he couold get a listen. And unless you've been on some strange planet for the last decade or more, read all of her intervivews. You can't stop the truth Anonymous, the truth will always rise to the top even if it trickles out like a small puddle into a big stream, into a river and it looks like the puddle is slowly flowing into a river. As far as Nevius is concerned in Farrah's life...here's a quote from someone quite brillant and I think it fits this episode in Farrah's final days quite well..."The secret to creativity
is knowing how to hide your sources." Perhaps thats what Farrah was doing with Nevius, hiding in plain sight with her vision, until Ryan bullied himself again in her life. See, Ryan just didn't get it. That's probably why he kept tearing his pants with her in the first place, he just can't help himself. No. Never met the folks, but you know what, from all that HE's put out there, She's put out there about their relationship and really just hearing from the kids, someone with a heart can figure out there's a lot of pain going on with Ryan O'Neal.

italia said...

It had to have come from somewhere. Usually it starts with childhood, sacred wounds. There's a reason that Ryan always has to feel the need to control, and play the badass. Usually badasses are really just the opposite. Weak, very weak indidviduals. And what's so tragic about this is he still hasn't learned. However, you are sooooooooooooo right. If Mr. Nevius keeps his end of the bargain going, we will see who will prevail. Ryan threw down the gauntlet when he threatened Nevius with his sick knee jerk reaction, and Nevius being the young turk he is, didn't back down and took it up. So yes, let's just see who winds this fight. Most of what you said about me tonight was fabricated and ridiculously so and we both know it, so I've peeped your card, actually I peeped it already when you were attacking NikkiV and T-boy. So you scored no points with me really. As far as Griffin is concerned. I mean really, anyone can see that Man/child is hurting. He loves his father and he is still, at this age trying to reason and connect with a man who is essentially dead inside. It is so obvious and for Ryan to have done what he did at the funeral, well his mentality is a little off base don't you think? He is a cruel person and he's mean to his kids. He is supposed to be the parent is he not? Someone on this blog repeatedly said..."we are hurting, we are grieving...blah, blah, blah. while they stood by and did nothing to faciliate a reconcilation between father and son. Hurting? Grieving. What would FArrah have done? No I didn't know any of the players beyound their public personnae's. But the Farrah Fawcett I encountered through print media and broadcast media, her clarity, her kindness usually shown through. She was absolutely alwways clear to me about family and family ties, how could anyone misinterpret where she stood on those issues and for Ryan to turn around and really spit on it on the day of her funeral. Well that says a lot about him doesn't it. I have no vested interest in any of this other than an emotional reaction to Farrah's illness and eventual demise. To see how hard that woman fought to live, to live. Did you get that Anonymous? Did you? It is what pulled me to the first blog inthe first place. You hope, you want to believe that when a person dies like Farrah did, that they are surrounded by people who absolutely, absolutely have their best interest at heart and after reading Nevius interview, how in the world can you absolutely say, we weren't there, how would we know. We know because we heard Farrah's voice. So know you're going to tell me that the voice we heard in that presenation was NOT Farrah's? I don't mean figuratively, I mean literally? You are going to tell me that the Farrah who fought the National Enquier, we didn't GET HER? Like Mr. Nevius got her? I found new found respect for her through her last battle here on this earth. And if she could do what she did to try and stay in this life, then by God I can do the little I can to make sure she did not die in vain and I am not her BEST FRIEND, nor her LOVER, i'm just an average American femaile who GOT HER and I will support Mr. Nevius in his effort to out the betrayers. Anthing else? Don't pull the Ryan and Alana pathetic defense of...Where you there, did you know her..blah, blah, blah. You identified with what I've written on the other blog because you know what I am saying is true. It isn't that I know everything, or even so much, it is that I wasn't watching the documenary for ENTERTAINMENT, I watched it to learn and to hear Farrah's voice as much as I could from what was presented to me. And now, as she asked at the end...What are you fightingn for? Well right about now Anonymous, I'm fighting to hear Farrah's TRUE VOICE. I absolutely get her...DID YOU?

italia said...

And one more thing. I am sorry I am very upset by the Nevius interview that's why I am writing. I am a writer and that's what we do. We write about truth's lies and life. And when we're good, people connect. So I guess I'm good because you've connected to some of what I've written elsewhere. One of the anonymous' are spot on. At the end, Farrah was on DRUGS completely OUT OF IT! She had no choice but to leave some things unattended to because she was fighting for her life. Literally. Oh, she's going to rise up on her death bed and take on the bloviator? There may have been times she was lucid, but do you reallly think that Ryan O'Neal is going to really tell us what she may have asked about during those periods of lucidity? Do you? Ryan admitted to Barbara WaWa, Meredith Viera, and whoever would interview him that he LIED TO HER MOST OF THE TIME. Again, he misjuded her strength. How do you lie to a woman about her only Son during a time like that? I am convinced that she held on because she probably was hoping to see her beloved Son one more time before she passed. All Ryan could do was wonder why she wouldn't just go. He has no love for a child or he would have been able to figure that one out. So whichever Anonymous said that you were so right. I realize there is more than one person posting under Annoymous. Ok. I've written out. Never thought this thing would upset me as it has. But it has.

Italia: I was the 8:01 post. Didn't mean for it to come up anonymous, but it did. You are "spot on", go get em!!!

italia said...

Oh, Anonymous, I undestand now. You are confusing me with the young lady who posted on the other blog and gave the incident that happened with she and Griffin when they were acting together in Hollywood, where Griffin got into a fight with Ryan. That is not me. I am not that person. I am Italia and you've got me confused with someonen else. Glad I cleared that up. Sorry. I thought you were really making stuff up about me.

G'night.

I hope Craig wins and Fights for Farrah. Just look at how nasty Ryan and Alana supporters are. If these are the kind of people who support them then God help us all. Nasty low lifes.Nikki Cathy Italia have done nothing to no one and for them to be insulted in such vulgar means is not right because they agree with Craig. Good luck guys and don't let em get you down.
