March 1997:

The Farrah Fawcett Issue!
On Saturday Feb. 22, 1997 Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O'Neal separated after 15 years. Farrah and Ryan were never married but they do have one child, Redmond (age 12). The couple will jointly participate in the upbringing of their son. After the sad news Angelic Heaven staff felt it only fitting to make the March issue: Farrah’s month. Last month the newsletter found itself bombarded by Farrah, Farrah, Farrah! Ms. Fawcett celebrated her fiftieth birthday by shining on the cover of her home state's magazine, Texas Monthly (February 1997). The article, written by Skip Hollandsworth, shares with the readers Farrah’s fondest memories of her fast pace career and Skip finds himself on his own “Angel” adventure as Farrah does some character research! Also in February, the Angelic Heaven got a "whiff" that being released in Brazil is a new line of Farrah Fawcett fragrances. The perfume's slogan is "For Women More Woman Than Ever". It has been rumored that this is the first in a line of women skin care products that will bare Ms. Fawcett's name. It's unknown if her cologne will ever hit the US (you could take a summer trip to Brazil). The Eau De Parfum comes four different ways, la Belle, la Provocante, la Fraiche, and la Jolie. One can only hope to be able to get a sweet smell of Farrah's newest venture! across the sea! What would it smell like? Maybe a meadow of roses mixed with sunflowers and tulips or just something Angelic!

Farrah has also landed on the cover of Australian Playboy (February 1997)! Her fourth Playboy issue includes the same photos from the US issue and cover photo from the Japanese/German issues! Coming up, Farrah will be seen on the runway modeling part of Nolan Miller's newest collection. The collection's premiere will take place in Palm Beach, Fl. As for Farrah's sexy Playboy video, it'll first be released as a Pay-For-View program in June 1997, then in late summer it'll will be released onto video. There is a rumor that Playboy magazine will be doing an upcoming feature as well. Entertainment Tonight highlighted Farrah as she steamed up the TV screen during the filming of the video, which she uses her body as a paint brush to artistically paint onto a canvas. Summer will be very hot! Update on the Disney cartoon The Brave Little Toaster goes to Mars which was to be released last summer, there is still no release date! In The Brave Little Toaster, Farrah Fawcett and her son Redmond worked together for the first time. And on her upcoming theatrical film The Apostle, is currently being edited for a hopeful winter release date. So there you have it, Farrah, Farrah, Farrah! She keeps getting better!

May 1997:

Remember Rosemary's Paiting
Remember this painting from "Rosemary for Remembrance", recalling how it had a striking resemblance to Kris Munroe? At Ms. Ladd's recent book signing, Jules, who worked on the set of Charlie's Angels, showed up with the painting to have Ms. Ladd sign it.

This one-of-a-kind painting is a really cool collectable! Jules mentioned that after breaking down the set, the crew could not find Ms. Ladd to give her the painting, so they were going to throw it away. Being at the right place, at the right time, Jules saved it from death and has treasured it over the years. Nothing like be hit with the past!
