The weekend is expected to be a somber one for friends of Farrah Fawcett. Her longtime partner Ryan O’Neal told People magazine that Fawcett “stays in bed now,” and her treatment “has pretty much ended.”
According to a friend of Fawcett’s, O’Neal’s interview also is a cue that it was acceptable to begin preparing for the inevitable.
“When Ryan spoke out like that, it was like a sign that it was OK for the goodbyes to begin,” said the friend. “We’ve all wanted to remain positive for as long as possible.” According to the friend, Fawcett isn’t totally aware of how much the public cares about her. “She knows there’s tremendous support, but really right now is about being with her family and close friends.”
The surrogate mother carrying Sarah Jessica Parker’s twin girls has been revealed to be a bisexual woman with a troubled past.
The woman chosen by Sarah Jessica Parker is Michelle Ross, a 26-year-old who has previously carried a child for a gay couple.
Ross who has a young child from a previous marriage is reportedly due to give birth in July to the ‘Sex and the City’ star’s twin daughters, reported Daily Mail online.
