I was at the guys softball game last night when I heard the news about Michael Jackson. I thought they were kidding. Such a shock ...and in the same day as Farrah.
Despite the controversies about Michael, his musical genius was undeniable. It was impossible to take your eyes off him when he performed. I always felt bad for Michael. He seemed like such a sad character who could never find peace with himself. I've wondered how much someone has to hate themselves to do the things he did to himself. And I felt bad that people called him a freak. Things were printed and said in the media that should not be said about anyone. So it seems like a sad ending for a sad life.
I have to be honest. I never got the whole Farrah thing. Probably because I'm a woman. She was not my favorite "Angel". I always thought Jaclyn Smith was the truly gorgeous one. Jaclyn was gorgeous, Kate was cute, and Farrah was sexy (probably why I never 'got' it when it came to her). I also don't get that Ryan O'Neil asked her to marry him at the end?? They were together for 20 years and had a child together. So what's up with waiting till she's on her death bed to propose? None of my business. People can do what they want, but if I were on my death bed and a guy who I'd been with for 20 years finally proposed I think I'd have to wonder.
So two of the icons I've grown up with are gone on the same day. I'm starting to feel old.
