Farrah Fawcett in critical condition

Farrah FawcettFarrah Fawcett, 62, checked into a Los Angeles hospital last Thursday and is said to be in critical condition. She was diagnosed with anal cancer three years ago and though the cancer went into remission in 2007, it returned just months later. Fawcett is the subject of a documentary being filmed for NBC, A Wing and a Prayer, about her battle with cancer. One of Fawcett’s doctors, Lawrence Piro, told People that the actress had abdominal bleeding and a hematoma that occurred while she was in Germany, where she went for controversial embryonic stem cell treatments. Meanwhile, Fawcett’s son with ex-partner Ryan O’Neal, Redmond O’Neal, 24, was arrested yesterday on suspicion of bringing narcotics into a jail. He had gone to visit an friend in jail and was stopped at a routine security checkpoint, where he admitted to having the drugs. He’s being held on $25,000 bail pending a Tuesday hearing. ~movie_alex

    So sad to hear of this…another victim of cancer. As for Redmond, he’s a selfish, spoiled brat who can’t even stay out of trouble long enough for his mother to die peacefully without having to be worrying about him! He’s obviously not very smart. Did he actually think that with his drug and criminal history that he wouldn’t be searched?

    A good friend of mine has brother that used to sneak drugs into jail because he was only in on Saturdays and Sundays. This gave him an ability to do it every week and make a pretty penny from it. And the only way he said to do it was by stashing it in his anal cavity…….. I got nothing else to add except……gross.

    Oh don’t worry….they would search there too and if not, they would ‘dry cell’ him in a cell with a toilet and a camera and they would wait until he passed it…yup, gross for sure!

    Her ex and her son have brought her a lot of pain and suffering, and now that she’s sick, they still don’t seem to care.
