Tanya Roberts Alive & Well!

Just launched is the brand-new Farrah Fawcett lipstick exclusively at Barney’s New York. The lipstick retails for $38.00. It’s currently available at Barney’s New York in Beverly Hills. It will eventually be available in the New York store and worldwide on the Barneys.com website.
The lipstick was created under the beauty line at Nude Envie. Barney’s New York Beverly Hill’s resident makeup artists Patrick Foley worked with Nude Envie, Founder and Creative Director Isabel Madison for 2 years bringing this lipstick to market.
Patrick worked tirelessly with Isabel to create Farrah’s perfect pink. The lipstick has a pure texture, not drying and contains no parabens "it’s an incredible formation" Patrick told CharliesAngels.com “It’s a takeoff of Farrah’s favorite lipstick that was discontinued years ago. It’s really a blend of three lipstick colors that Farrah used everyday - but it’s now all in one.”
“The packaging was ridiculously hard to get done” Patrick shared about creating the sleek packaging with shimmering pink. It might look simple but Patrick worked relentlessly to get perfect pink color for the heart and Farrah’s signature. Patrick was also able to secured the rights to use Farrah Fawcett’s signature for the side of the box.
Patrick’s goal with this amazing product was to create an lipstick to share with the world to remember and honor his friend/client Farrah Fawcett. He is excited that part of the process of each lipstick goes to support The Farrah Fawcett Foundation.

CharliesAngels.com Mike Pingel was able to chat with actress Jen Danby about her one woman show on "Farrah". Jen created, wrote and performs as Farrah Fawcett in the show.
The show which is directed by Austin Pendleton will be performed this weekend in Long Beach, Long Island, Sunday March 11 @3pm, at Long Beach Public Library. The show is free of charge. There will also be a Talkback with Jen & Austin following the 75 min show.
How did Farrah inspire you?
Well, it will sound superficial, but it’s not actually superficial – her hair. She had a style that was a giant explosion when I was heading into high school. All of a sudden there was this look, this hipness, this coolness and CHARLIE’S ANGELS. There was this image of girls being able to be cool. When I was little I had Barbie dolls, however, I kept playing with my brother’s GI Joes because I do like ACTION. So, when CHARLIE’S ANGELS came along, the two genres came together. It was cool. They were action women. They were pretty and cool. Farrah inspired me in those early days more in an impressionist way – she was pretty, slim and blond but she had a power in cool way. She was funny. On CHARLIE’S ANGELS she was was hip and had a positive image of a woman who was a beauty but also had an agency.
I was aware of her and I saw her in the BURNING BED with my mother when it originally aired. She was amazing. That was a very intense film to watch. It was very painful because of the subject. She was really brave and I thought she was also brave as an actress.
Looking at Farrah now, in the perspective I am now, I looked at Barbara Walters interview from 1980 which was a major influence for my show. She had left Charlie’s Angels. She was with Ryan O’Neal, but she did not know what the future was going to bring. She spoke in a classy way about Jaclyn Smith & Kate Jackson, and about the drama of leaving and her breakup of the marriage to Lee. She was making bold choices. These were not safe choices for anybody in Hollywood and definitely not woman in Hollywood in 1979. She seemed happy, positive and upbeat, with brains and beauty.
Did you ever meet Farrah?
I never met her, it would have been cool.
What is your favorite Farrah Fawcett Project?
It’s so hard. I adore Charlie’s Angels. I really like the show, its campy, it’s funny and wacky and wild. I like her acting in it. I like the characters and it’s nostalgic for me because it was informative to me as a young teen. I really like it now and enjoy it.
I really enjoyed watching MURDER IN TEXAS. When I was looking at different works of her I wanted to see everything she done up to the period I was setting it into. When I saw MURDER IN TEXAS I really liked her work in that. There was a whole other side to her. It was like a pre-BURNING BED. She had a strength. I found an article on line, I think from People magazine, and someone was raving about her acting in it and how it was the first sign of another serious side of her. I really agree with that.
And of course, I remember the BURNING BED, it was intense and it was so good. But it was very important that story was told.
How did you create the Farrah?
I found a method and it has become my method of creating these shows. With my SHARON TATE show, it started as a solo piece and the method of putting that piece together was to start with ‘storytelling’. I would go into this actor’s lab I was in and start with a five-minute story from the research I was doing. Add a bit on improvisation to it and I never wrote it down but memorized it. I call it “memorizing it in the body” like I memorized it as an oral story telling. I wanted it to be more of a free-spirited thing. Then I created a piece on Michelle Pfeiffer and created it the same kind of way, yet without the actor’s lab and I also recorded them.
With the Farrah, I created it the same way but I had to first try to figure out when I wanted to set it. I wanted to do it before THE BURNING BED and before she gets sick. Not that there is anything to be ashamed of that period but I wanted a period of time around the Barbara Walters’ Special when Farrah doesn’t know what the future is going to be. She has just left Charlie’s Angels, she’s was with Ryan and she doesn’t know what’s coming next.
Then I had the great idea to set FARRAH at Andy Warhol’s when he was taking the polaroids and creating the two silk screens for the ABC-TV’s 20/20 show special segment. I thought it was a great premise. Now if he talked to her, that would be so weird. Why would they talk the whole time, but I could do that contrivance. Then it turns out it’s historically true, when I was researching on Andy Warhol. His method was that he would talk to the celebrities while taking their polaroids to get to learn about them. So, it was perfect.
I basically created Farrah of a shape and structure from the stories I wanted to tell after looking at the material. I ran it by Austin Pendleton who I asked to direct it and we worked ideas back and forth with each other.
What are your thoughts about playing Farrah?
I love playing Farrah. She is like a lot of sunshine. She’s got so many colors. She has that sunshine feeling like, yeah… tomorrow, there is always tomorrow.
Where can people see the performance this weekend:
It’s free to the public and come to the Long Beach Library, NY – March 11 at 3pm
This American Blonde Actress and Mississippi Mud Productions announce a special Long Beach, Long Island, performance of FARRAH, all about '70s superstar Farrah Fawcett, on Sunday, March 11th, at 3:00.
FARRAH is set in December 1979 in Andy Warhol's Factory in New York City after Warhol chose mega star Farrah Fawcett to be his model for a 20/20 TV special on him and his celebrity icon artwork. She landed in New York for the session with her new romantic partner, Ryan O'Neal, just after splitting from her husband "The Six Million Dollar Man" Lee Majors, and in the rocky wake of leaving the television show that catapulted her to stardom, the 1976 TV hit CHARLIE'S ANGELS. In it she played Private Investigator Jill Monroe for one smash season, doing things like high speed chases on skateboards and catching bad guys on screen. A Texas-born art major at the University of Texas at Austin when Hollywood reached out to her and she took a chance, Farrah Fawcett was America's number one star. Her hair changed America, and her famous red bathing suit poster was the biggest selling poster in the world. The setting of this play is based on a true one of Andy Warhol asking Farrah questions as he takes Polaroids of her for the ABC TV 20/20 special as he prepares to paint two silk screen portraits of Farrah he will give to her and Ryan. Sweet, smart, loving, fun, and bold 70s "It" girl Farrah talks in this "secret" conversation about her life from her childhood in Texas to this juncture in time at the pinnacle of television fame and with aspirations for movie stardom and a new true soulmate love in her life when everything was golden for this icon. With a free spirit, Farrah, as imagined by Jen Danby, shares the adventures her life has taken her with hope for the Future. Directed by Austin Pendleton.It is written by and stars Jen Danby, of CALIFORNIA GIRL: BEING Michelle Pfeiffer, and SHARON TATE IN HEAVEN.
Show run time is 75 minutes. On Sunday March 11 @3pm at Long Beach Public Library 111 West Park Avenue Long, Beach, NY - Free admission

There, the scientists meet up with travelers from other times, planets and dimensions who, like them, are looking for a way off the island and back to their homes.
