My heart goes out to the family, And to Farrah she will always be remembered.

Farrah will be greatly missed. I have followed her career since the beginning and always tried to keep up with what was going on in her life. She will be missed. My heart goes out to the family and loved ones at this time of sorry.

We'll be watching tonight. This lady truly deserves a terrific send off. Such a sweet person yet strong ! To be wiped out to young is sad. What a blessing she was to us all! Remember that smile!

Due to the death of MJ it sounds like you are going to short change Farrah tonite. Please give her her due, too. She was an icon. Thanks.

RIP Farrah.

barbie   June 25th, 2009 8:15 pm ET

larry, you will have days to discuss Michael Jackson. Farrah should not be bumped .

Rita   June 25th, 2009 8:35 pm ET

So now that Michael Jackson has died and all the news is focused on him, when will LKL's segment be on "Remembering Farrah"?

mary glynn stelmack   June 25th, 2009 8:35 pm ET

yes i agree with some of the other bloggers we have a woman who showed grace and courage fighting a disease one that is not talked about anal cancer then we have a man who dies suddenly who while he was a world famous talent he was also a person of questionable character. I don't think MJ coverage she bump farrah but hey I know where farrah is and who she is with. iT SEEMS SO WRONG TO BELITTLE HER LIFE AND STRUGGLE TO LIVE BECAUSE AS NUMEROUS REPORTERS HAVE ALREADY STATED THERE WILL BE ON GOING INVESTIGATION FOR MONTHS INTO MJ DEATH AND HIS TALENTED BUT SAD LIFE . PEACE BE WITH YOU FARRAH YOU WERE EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL IN THE STRUGGLE THAN IN THE GLORY DAYS WE SAW YOUR HEART.

Gator   June 25th, 2009 8:35 pm ET

I agree, barbie!

Larry just said on CNN that he'd give Farrah a passing mention, but tonite it'll be ALL ABOUT Micheal Jackson.

So sad. Farrah mattered, too.

Melissa   June 25th, 2009 8:37 pm ET

Larry, after hearing of Farrah's death this afternoon, I cried, why couldnt a judge allow Redmen to be with his mother but we sow the seeds that we lay. I was ready to watch your program this evening and will do watch it but now with Michael Jacksons death 3 hours later, I hope that its not 60 minutes of MJ and more of Farrah's battle with cancer, Its so much more deserving of a tribute to instead of MJ today, do the show about him tomorrow, this is Farrah's day and she is truly with the Angels, and Michael is as well, but we lost her first and she deserves 59:30, tomorrow can be 59:58 on MJ.

Let me see if I have this right....You were going to do a show on Farrah's death tonight, but instead you are going to do the show on Michael Jackson's death? Apparently, Jackson's death is more news worthy and will bring in higher ratings. That is just WRONG!

SLSW   June 25th, 2009 9:00 pm ET

Mr. King,
I am very shocked that you would totally bump Farrah Fawcett, I realize both are famous but I also believe they deserve equal time!! I heard you say that the show was to be devoted to Farrah, but now that Michael died, you will have a "piece on her", I am sure you know that is not right! no matter how you want to look at it.
This is why I do not watch TV- I hate that my husband turns it on.

I'm disgusted that the major cable news stations are dedicating so much air time tonight glorifying Michael Jackson's life and the abberant life style choices he made that brought him to an early demise. While he may have been talented, he made his choices.

It's sad that Farrah's long and painful struggle with a common disease that has the potential to affect any of us is being diminished by the press. Farrah could be any of us. Michael lives in Neverland

Sami   June 25th, 2009 9:08 pm ET

I can NOT believe you would dis Farrah and her friends, loved ones and fans with your tactless comment tonight. You were GOING to do a show on her death because it was EXPECTED, but now it's HISTORY in the face of Michael Jackson's death?! You have offeded a lot of people with that remark...

Catherine O'Neill   June 25th, 2009 9:10 pm ET

Farrah deserves more than a passing moment. Michael Jackson was a terrifically talented man who was in denial about his illness. Farrah faced her illness and made us all a little more aware of her turmoil so others could be helped.

Jayne Webster   June 25th, 2009 9:11 pm ET

I grew up listening to MJ...But I also grew up watching Charlies Angels...Its truly a sad day...

Jacquie   June 25th, 2009 9:16 pm ET

I am so sad tha Micheals death has overshadowed Farrahs life!!! But all I can I see Farrah with a big smile and a giggle reaching out to Micheals hand in heaven and saying "common Micheal lets go meet our lord!"

Susan Martin   June 25th, 2009 9:36 pm ET

This woman, mother , friend, how can we not miss her. To her son, as a mother, I can tell you she loved you more than life itself, I can tell you that she never stop thinking of you for one waking moment, you were never out of her thoughts. No matter what. Come on, this was Farrah Facuet, the author, the actor, the person we grew up with, "Charlies Angels". How could we ever forget her beautiful face, her strong personality, the role model we set our every day life by, we will miss you forever.

Bless your family, you`re in our thoughts

cee   June 25th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

Its unfortunate to here that Micheal Jackson and Farrah facett died,

Im glad that Micheal was near his family. who knows how much more controversy there would have been to send him to the U.S. He is trully the peoples' legend of ALL TIMES.

As for Farrah she fought a good fight and she will be trully missed as well.

Robert   June 25th, 2009 10:51 pm ET

I devastated by her death, but more saddened that Michael Jackson's death overshadowed the important legacy and message Farrah's death would have delivered. I hope CNN and other programs such as Larry King Live do her message, her cause and her life justice and honor the great person, the great work and the tireless effort Farrah made in the last years of her remarkable and sad life. She must have been fighting until her last breathe.

Elaine   June 25th, 2009 11:24 pm ET

I'm disappointed with your insensitivity in dumping Farrah for Michael. You should have thought that one out a little better.

Alice Townsend   June 25th, 2009 11:34 pm ET

At the start of my day, I heard about the death of Farrah Fawcett and was looking forward to watching your show tonight as I thought you would be honoring her and her life. You are usually a pretty sensitive guy; however, earlier this evening, you said something that made me want to slap you. You were on CNN discussing Micheal Jackson's death and said that before he died, that you were going to have a show tonight about Farrah Fawcett but that she was old news compared to Micheal Jackson's death (or something to that effect). I thought your comment was rather heartless and cruel and certainly could have been said in a completely different way. Please have a show about Farrah as her struggle and fight against her cancer was so inspirational to me (I am a five year cancer survivor) and heart breaking at the same time. Next time, please be aware of what you say and how you say it!

bren   June 25th, 2009 11:47 pm ET

walk with god in heaven look down on us and please pray for us here on earth as our world is in need of help from god and you as angels now farrah fawcett and michael jackson and may god help your family's

Bill   June 25th, 2009 11:57 pm ET

Sad day for all baby boomers. Farrah was one of the most beautiful women of all time , not just the 70's as I'm seeing her refered to , and regardless of how I feel about Michael Jacksons personal life he was one of the greatest performers that ever lived.Shocking that that both passed away on the same day. Gone To Soon. R.I.P.

Nareema, Guyana/Canada   June 26th, 2009 12:05 am ET

My sister and I grew up with Michael...It is surprising how much sadness I feel for someone I have never met!...May God bless you Michael – there is no one like you...We love you!

kathleen sousa   June 26th, 2009 12:10 am ET

Farrah Fawcett was a beautiful woman,women wanted to be her and men just wanted her.We grew up watching charlie's angels and movies like the burning bed which opened up alot of women's eyes about domestic abuse. It is sad to sit by someone so loved and watch them pass away slowly from a horrible disease and not be able to help in anyway except by showing love. My coondolences to Mr.Oneal and Redmond.She will be greatly missed and remembered for the strong,beautiful,couragious woman that she was..R.I.P ..Heaven has another Angel.

Nareema, Guyana/Canada   June 26th, 2009 12:27 am ET

Very sad about Farrah...Death is very hard to deal with and this is two in one day!...We did not even get to deal with hers...May she rest in peace...

Amelia   June 26th, 2009 12:34 am ET

Unfortunately, Farrah was a bit before my time in regards of appreciating her personally; however, as bizarre as Michael Jackson may seem to many, I did grow up listening to his music and watching the spiral from sensational superstar to astranged character. It seems he clearly had issues and I find it sad that so many (media, in particular) are quick to harp on, dissect and isolate an individual who is clearly unstable. I don't have much personal thought on Farrah, but m by all accounts she was a fantastic and classy woman who fought a brave battle against cancer. They will both be missed by many loved ones.

For those who are truly disturbed and confused about the actual state of the body and or individual upon death, I warmly invite you to look up the following verses in your own copy of the Bible. There will be a resurrection of all those lost in death...I do not intend this to spark a controversy of religious beliefs, nor do I intend to come across as some self righteous zealot. Rather, I hope looking up the following scriptures in your own Bible brings comfort to those who perhaps are confused about what happens at death, have lost faith or have never had a faith...

The dead are conscious of day we will no longer experience death...all those who have died will be raised up to life on earth...
Genesis 3: 19 (1-24)
Psalms 146:4
Ecclesiastes 9:5
Ecclesiastes 9:10
1 Corinthians 15:26
John 5:28, 29
Revelation 21:4
John 5:28,29

Genuine and warm regards,

After the news broke today about the passing of Michael Jackson and I watched Larry King on CNN I was extremely disappointed and upset to hear Larry King say he was planning on doing tonights show on Farrah Fawcett but when he heard about Michael Jackson's death he's "bumping" Farrah and now going with Jackson. You should be ashamed of yourself Larry; how horribly disrespectful of you!! She's an icon, a star, and to "bump" her for what, because you think Jackson will give you better ratings? Again, you should be ashamed! My prayers are with Ryan, Redmond, her father and extended family. Farrah fought a hard battle with courage and dignity, and gave hope to so many others that were fighting the same battle. She was such an influence to so many, and she will be dearly missed. You're truly an Angel now Farrah! We will miss you!

Anne   June 26th, 2009 12:59 am ET

Farewell to both today, but this is another wakeup call ....
Sept.11 . Lady Dianna, and lets not forget Sister Teresa.
Its unfortunate than we tend to still hang on to the past, but are not able to embrace the future.

Ann Flagella   June 26th, 2009 2:04 am ET

I was a great fan of Farrah Fawcett and Charlie's Angels. She was my first idol. It saddens me that she is gone and had to struggle with such horrible pain. From what I heard she was a great person. My heart goes out to her family. May you rest in peace Farrah. You were so loved by so many.

lyn   June 26th, 2009 2:15 am ET

I loved Farrah and to think that you would put a whole hour on about the death of Micheal Jackson instead of the fight that she went through to live her life to the fullest, makes me feel ashamed that your show has become about sensationalism instead of reality and compassion for those who are famous for being human. Being an assumed pedophile always wins in the ratings. I always thought you were more of an man than that Larry..

Lynda   June 26th, 2009 6:40 pm ET

I will never watch LKL again. The callousness King showed by actually saying that he was scheduled to do a tribute to Farrah but "now she's in the past" is more than I can stomach.

I know losing me as a watcher doesn't matter much.
