Farrah and Ryan to wed
Ryan O’Neal has revealed on a U. S. chatshow that he will marry Farrah Fawcett.
‘I used to ask her to marry me all the time. But it just got to be a joke, you know. We just joked about it,’ O’Neal told U.S. chatshow host Barbara Walters.
Farrah, who starred in the hit series Charlie’s Angels, was originally diagnosed with rectal cancer in 2006, and believed she had beaten it after surgery and a course of chemotherapy. The disease returned the following year, however, and despite experimental treatment in Germany, spread to her liver.
Throughout her cancer treatment, which was chronicled in the recent documentary Farrah’s Story – the couple have been inseparable.
‘I just don’t know how to play this one. I won’t know this world without her,’ O’Neal said recently. ‘It’s a love story.’
He added: ‘I can’t hear a song, I can’t pass places that we were together, without being stabbed in the heart.
‘I fell in love with her all over again because of how she handled this.’
