Courtney Stodden is at it again.

No, she hasn't married another 51-year old actor in one of the more disturbing, desperate cries for attention that we can recall.

But the young singer has paid supposed homage to a classic beauty by donning a similar bathing suit and striking a similar pose. A few days after we uncovered an image of Stodden making like Pamela Anderson, an image of a then-15-year old Courtney has emerged. Here, she channels Farrah Fawcett from the latter's Charlie's Angels days:

Just when you think you've heard it all.

Ryan O'Neal admits he has been so estranged from his daughter Tatum O'Neal that he hit on her at Farrah Fawcett's funeral because he didn't recognize her.

Farrah passed away June 25, a few hours before Michael Jackson.

"I had just put the casket in the hearse and I was watching it drive away when a beautiful blonde woman comes up and embraces me," Ryan told Vanity Fair.

"I said to her, 'You have a drink on you? You have a car?' She said, 'Daddy, it's me, Tatum!' I was just trying to be funny, and it's my daughter. It's so sick."

Fortunately, Tatum says she wasn't creeped out.

"That's our relationship in a nutshell," says the actress, who won an Oscar at age 10 for starring with Ryan in Paper Moon. "Make of it what you will. It had been a few years since we'd seen each other, and he was always a ladies' man."

Tatum had struggled with addiction growing up and hadn't spoken to her dad in years. Penning her 2004 memoir A Paper Life didn't help things, either.

Ryan recalls thinking. "How dare she throw our laundry in the street for money!"

Tatum, who was arrested for buying crack in June 2008, and has a history of problems, says her father "has every right to be angry about the book."

"No parent wants to hear their kid saying sh!t about them... But what I wrote in the book was true. I've got a battle with drugs, but I'm a strong, independent person, and I fight for myself, and my father and I butt heads."

"When I was 16 years old, he and Farrah moved in together, and after that I saw my dad periodically, and that took a long time to get over," she says.

"Would I do that to my kids? No, but I don't think Farrah was responsible for that. I truly thought Farrah Fawcett was inspirational and beautiful and kind. Anyway, it's past; I've moved on. I'm older now, and I forgive him."

Farrah Fawcett died at 9:28 a.m. this morning today. She was 62. The actress and model died at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, Calif., in the ICU.

Her longtime partner Ryan O'Neal was by her bedside as she passed away.

Her only child, Redmond O'Neal, whose father is Ryan, was not present.

Farrah was diagnosed with anal cancer back in 2006. She had recently returned to St. John's for treatment of complications from the cancer.

"She's gone. She now belongs to the ages," Ryan O'Neal, who this week planned to wed his partner of 29 years (it's not clear if he did), said.

"She's now with he mother, sister and God. I loved her with all my heart. I will miss her so very much. She was in and out of consciousness ... I talked to her all through the night. I told her how very much I loved her. She's in a better place now."

Like so much about Fawcett's life - including her bumpy relationship with O'Neal - her heroic struggle to beat the disease was closely followed by her fans.

O'Neal, in particular, remained a steadfast supporter of Farrah Fawcett, who, despite her frailty, spent the last months of her life filming a TV documentary chronicling her illness, including several trips to Germany to undergo treatment.

Farrah Fawcett skyrocketed to fame as one of the private eyes on Charlie's Angels, and also starred in The Burning Bed, Nazi Hunter, Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story, Margaret Bourke-White and Small Sacrifices, among other works.

We wish her family the best in this difficult time.

Farrah Fawcett is fighting for her life, but longtime partner Ryan O'Neal told ABC news that "I've asked her to marry me, again, and she's agreed."

"We will, as soon as she can, say yes," O'Neal, 68, says of Fawcett, his companion since 1980. "Maybe we can nod her head," he said, laughing.

"I used to ask her to marry me all the time," O'Neal said for an interview with Barbara Walters, scheduled to air Friday on ABC's 20/20.

"But it just got to be a joke, you know. We just joked about it."

But now with Farrah Fawcett, 62, in a state of deteriorating health thanks to her cancer, "I promise you, we will," says Ryan O'Neal. "Absolutely."

Regarding dress for their upcoming wedding ceremony, the still-jocular Ryan O'Neal plans to look "like a gigolo. You know? And the little thin mustache and slicked-back hair. I don't know. We have fun, we tease about that."

We just hope son Redmond O'Neal gets out of jail in time to see it.

Melissa Joan Hart has written an apology after the New York Post overheard the actress saying that she hoped Farrah Fawcett would live ... at least long enough for her bikini-clad cover to be published by People.

She writes, “It has come to my attention that something I said has been misconstrued in the press. I was merely explaining what I had read about how the cover of People magazine was chosen from an article I read in the New York Times."

"I truly hope Farrah and her family know I wish them the best at this time in her life. I would never be so selfish to disrespect anyone, let alone someone I admire greatly.”

“Last week was an intense one for me in many ways. Not only for all the reasons that have been publicized for you like the magazine cover and our new shop opening."

"Mainly because my mother was admitted into the hospital and underwent an intense 8 hour surgery on a brain tumor. All of my 6 siblings and I gathered at my house and the hospital for the entire week to be strong for each other."

"She is out of the woods and on her way to recovery, luckily she is a good healer and has 7 children to lend a hand in times like these. Prayer is a big part of my life and it was very crucial last week for my mommy."

"I ask that you keep her in your thoughts and prayers as she fights her way to a full and wonderful recovery. I love you Mommy!!!”

We love how she turned that apology around, once again making the situation all about her. The first two lines would have sufficed.

Stay classy, Sabrina!

Last week, former teen star Melissa Joan Hart was praying over and over and over again that Farrah Fawcett would not succumb to cancer, which she is battling.

Not out of compassion for the ailing actress and legendary sex symbol, though. Just because she wanted to be on the cover of People Magazine so desperately.

The New York Post says Melissa Joan Hart was overheard at KTLA's studios in L.A., where she was promoting her new candy store (apparently) saying as much.

The former Sabrina, the Teenage Witch star, 33, was overheard saying to someone off-camera she hoped Farrah wouldn't die, so she could stay on the cover.

We wish Farrah Fawcett well and hope she prevails in her fight against cancer ... and not because we're worried about losing a celebrity news magazine cover to her.

Farrah passing away, which seemed fairly likely, given her declining health, would've been big news and bumped Hart's bikini body and weight loss tips off.

That would have been as tragic as it gets - for Hart.

Fortunately for Melissa, she ended up on the cover - and is dressed appropriately for her ultimate destination if she keeps making comments such as this.

While it didn't look good for her a few days ago, and she's far from out of the woods, Farrah Fawcett is now expected to leave the hospital within days.

Friend Alana Stewart is in awe of how the Charlie's Angels star has dealt with her ordeal, saying "I've never seen anyone fight for their life like this."

Despite widespread reports to the contrary, Fawcett, 62, was hospitalized for internal bleeding not directly related to her longtime fight with anal cancer.

"Farrah is not in a coma and she's never been unconscious," Stewart says.

"It's unconscionable for these things to be put out. It's so tremendously hurtful to Farrah. It's put her in a panic. But Farrah's spirit is incredible."

Her personal physician, Dr. Lawrence Piro, has also been impressed with Fawcett, calling her "an amazing patient" since she was first diagnosed in 2006.

"All people who face cancer are brave," he says, "but Farrah has been especially brave because she has had to battle two burdens at the same time. One is the burden of cancer. The other is going through the cancer in a very public way."

Farrah Fawcett has been receiving visitors from a close circle of friends such as Stewart. Another presence is her long-time companion Ryan O'Neal.

"Ryan has continued to be by her side and has helped her so much through this experience," says the physician Piro of the longtime couple.

Son Redmond O'Neal, however, is in jail. Tough break there.

A cancer-stricken Farrah Fawcett was fighting for her life Sunday night at an L.A. hospital where she slipped into unconsciousness as her relatives gathered by her bedside, hoping for a recovery but preparing for the opposite outcome.

The former Charlie's Angels star, now 62, has been in an undisclosed hospital since Thursday, and her declining health has a team of doctors fearing the worst.

Fawcett has been ravaged by her second bout with a rare form of colorectal cancer since 2006. Her longtime lover, actor Ryan O'Neal, was at her bedside.

Adding to the family drama was the arrest of Redmond O'Neal, her son, on drug charges - specifically, allegations that he tried to smuggle drugs into a jail.

Redmond O'Neal, 24, who had earlier joined his dad at his mother's bedside, was busted when he drove a friend to a detention facility in Santa Clarita, Calif., and guards found drugs on him at a checkpoint. Always a smart move, Red.

We wish Farrah Fawcett and her family the best in this difficult time.
