NEW YORK — It’s almost been a year since Farrah Fawcett died on the morning of June 25, 2009, after a lengthy battle with cancer. Tori Spelling, who was a former neighbor of the “Charlie’s Angels” star, told Access Hollywood that the blonde bombshell visited her from beyond during a psychic reading.
“I was talking to a medium,” Spelling told Access Hollywood in an interview to promote her third memoir, “uncharted terriTORI,” which hit bookstores on Tuesday. “I was hoping my dad (‘Charlie’s’ Angels’ producer Aaron Spelling) would come through.”
Instead of hearing from her father, while sitting down with medium and talk-show host John Edward, it was the former “Angel” Spelling heard from.
“Farrah Fawcett came through in my reading loud and clear,” Spelling continued. “It was really awkward for him as well. He’s like, ‘I have never had this happen.’ ”
Spelling explained to Access that she knew Fawcett for years — first through her dad and the actress’ work on “Charlie’s Angels,” then because they were neighbors and also because the blonde bombshell appeared on Spelling’s former VH1 show, “So NoTorious,” but she wasn’t entirely prepared for her psychic visit from the star.
“She wanted me to give a message to her family about how she was doing and what was going on and I’m like, ‘Great! She really picked the wrong person,’” Spelling laughed.
“Non-confrontational me, what am I gonna do?” Spelling continued. “So I’m sitting on that information — I’m happy to say it’s not in the book because it happened afterwards.”
However, Spelling eventually did make a move and got in touch with Fawcett’s loved ones.
“I actually wrote a letter to Ryan O’Neal and gave it to him so I was like, he’s either going to think I’m completely crazy or he’s going to say, ‘Wow! Some of this makes sense,’ because she gave very specific details of things to tell them,” she explained.
Spelling also reached out to Fawcett’s son, Redmond O’Neal, through his father.
“I did and I included that in the note to Ryan saying, ‘Please pass this on to Redmond. ... She really wanted him to know these things,’ ” Spelling explained. “I haven’t heard from Ryan so I don’t know, you know, I’m hoping you know he understood what I was trying to say and doesn’t think I’m some loony.”
