The Farrah Fawcett Foundation has joined Stand Up to Cancer and the American Association for Cancer Research to form a research team dedicated to HPV-related cancers.during a press event on Monday. "It's estimated that more than 30,000 HPV-associated cancers occur each year in the United States alone," said Sherry Lansing, SU2C Co-Founder, Founder of the Sherry Lansing Foundation, and Chairperson of the Entertainment Industry Foundation Board of Directors. "Research into new therapies that will benefit patients is urgently needed."
Alana Stewart, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation added, "Farrah was committed to the struggle against anal cancer and other forms of cancer. We are very pleased to continue Farrah's legacy by supporting this important scientific initiative."
A jury has ruled that actor Ryan O'Neal can keep an Andy Warhol portrait of his longtime love Farrah Fawcett.
The trial in the vase of The University of Texas at Austin’s Blanton Museum of Art vs. O’Neal centered on a dispute that began after Fawcett died of cancer in 2009. She willed her artwork to her alma mater, and among those works were, the school contended, two Andy Warhol portraits of actress. The university already has one, and sued for the other one from O’Neal.
The case between Ryan O’Neal and The University of Texas at Austin is now in the hands of the jury, which must decide if the school or O’Neal should have one of two Warhol portraits of Farrah Fawcett.
Fawcett’s longtime friend and "Charlie's Angels" co-star Jaclyn Smith sat down with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour on Tuesday, just a day after she broke down outside court.
After "Jackass" star Ryan Dunn was killed in a car crash Monday, Roger Ebert tweeted, "Friends don't let jackasses drink and drive." Dunn's longtime friend, Bam Margera, fired back, "Shut your fat f***ing mouth!" Ebert defended himself, saying Dunn was intoxicated and tweeted, "He drank, he drove, 2 people died."

Actor Ryan O'Neal is heading to Washington D.C. with daughter Tatum O'Neal for a special presentation in memory of Farrah Fawcett, who died of cancer in June 2009.
On Wednesday, February 2 (which would have been Farrah's 64th birthday), the family is donating several items to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History -- including the infamous red bathing suit Farrah wore in her immensely popular '70s pinup poster.
"They'd like it, the Smithsonian, for their display," O'Neal told "Extra." Other items being donated are the original poster, a leather-bound book of Fawcett's personal copies of scripts for the first season of "Charlie's Angels" and more.
"Extra" talked with Ryan and Tatum at a special screening of "Paper Moon," their 1973 classic about a 1930s con man and the little girl he goes into business with. "The last time we saw it together was 12 years ago," the actor said. "It was a great script and they said I could use my daughter."
Former "90210" star Tori Spelling claims she was contacted by Farrah Fawcett during a seance.
The actress spoke with "Extra" at the book signing of her new tome, "uncharted terriTORI," and said she and famed TV medium John Edward tried to contact her late father, Aaron Spelling, who produced "Charlie's Angels." They got Farrah instead. "He was like, I don't know what to say, but Farrah Fawcett is coming through. Does that make sense to you?"
It's hard to believe it's been 30 years since "Charlie's Angels" became a TV phenomenon.
Former castmates Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd recently reminisced with "Extra" about how much they missed their late co-stars, Farrah Fawcett and John Forsythe.
"Yes, we were a big family and it's hard," Smith said. "It just seems like yesterday and now they're gone."
The longstanding rift between Ryan O'Neal and his daughter Tatum has been mended.
The two appeared at the premiere of "The Runaways" -- their first time at event together in decades.
"It feels great to be here with my Pops," Tatum told "Extra." Ryan added, "I'm proud, I'm proud!"
