Actress Farrah Fawcett, who was launched into instant pop culture stardom in 1976 with a best-selling wall poster and a featured role in the ABC series Charlie's Angels, is dead at 62. She was a TV presence in our lives right to the end. Fawcett, who battled cancer for several years, was seen last month in an NBC documentary that she produced herself and helped tape with a digital camera. The film, Farrah's Story, which chronicled her struggle with the disease, was a ratings success for the network, and she vowed to continue with a second TV documentary.

First, the spot she won on the Olympic team for the Beijing Games was taken away and given to a competitor. Then, after making this year's team, she learned her sport would be dropped from the Games after London. Somehow, Farrah Hall, the sole American woman in the upcoming Olympic RS:X windsurfing competition, always finds herself fighting her sport as much as her competition. And yet, if there's anything the 30-year-old Annapolis native knows how to do, it's navigating rough waters.

It was nine years ago to the day that Survivor: Borneo debuted on CBS, ushering in a new era of reality TV as the dominant form of prime time network and cable programming. Remember Richard Hatch, the naked contestant known as "the snake"? Since that first summer, critics like me have been wondering how far we as an audience would let the voyeuristic cameras go before we decided we'd had enough. Obviously, we have yet to hit that wall. But it appears that without much notice, we have entered a new and darker realm of the genre in recent weeks - one that is making some viewers feel a little queasy.

Television's newest genre may be the celebrity-abuse sitcom. Kirstie Alley was the first to mock herself in her own show. Then Farrah Fawcett did it. And now Tori Spelling is doing it, too. With each new show, in which B-list celebrities grasp at stardom by making fun of themselves on camera, the amount of humiliation heaped upon them grows.

There's nothing wrong with "Man of the House" that a little intelligence wouldn't have solved. But no such luck.There's a kernel of a provocative idea here. Chevy Chase plays a government attorney named Jack who falls in love with the divorced Farrah Fawcett, much to the resentment of her young son Ben (Jonathan Taylor Thomas), who has formed a deep and lasting bond with his single parent. Chase moves in with the idea of wooing the boy to his affections, but the boy, clever little monster that he is, realizes that he has momentary leverage in the situation.

Remember all that stuff about how Farrah Fawcett had become such a good actress?Well, what it really meant was that in the right role, usually that of a victim, supported by a good director, in a movie setting where she had the freedom to do several takes, the former "Charlie's Angel" could surprise you and pull off a believable character.It didn't mean that she has the wherewithal to do the toughest sort of acting, comedy, filmed live before an audience. The incontrovertible evidence is "Good Sports," a CBS sitcom that premieres tonight at 9:30 on Channel 11 (WBAL)

An encounter with the undead ... paparazzi Woody Harrelson is likening a paparazzo he tussled with at a New York airport to one of the undead zombies he battled in his most recent film. In a statement released Friday, Harrelson jokingly compares the scrutiny of the paparazzi to his being "constantly under assault by zombies" in his upcoming film, Zombieland. Celebrity gossip site TMZ posted a video on Thursday of Harrelson chasing one of their photographers, who followed the actor and his 12-year-old daughter through New York's LaGuardia Airport.

A young publicity photographer shows up on Mulholland Drive with his '37 Chevy truck and Nikon-F reflex camera to shoot pictures of an angel in a rusty red swimsuit. She chose a one-piece. When she smiles, 32 teeth radiate at an inviting angle. When she tilts her head, flips of hair gather on her tan shoulders - a look that would launch a hairstyle fad for a generation. In the time after Betty Grable's World War II pinups and Marilyn Monroe, before the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue mania and Pamela Anderson, the original swimsuit poster of Farrah Fawcett ruled gym lockers, offices and bedrooms.

Penelope Cruz is in no hurry to become the next Mrs. Tom Cruise. The two played lovers in Vanilla Sky and have since gone public with their dating. (She was just snapped in L.A. boarding his private plane with his two children.) But the sultry Spanish star is taking things slowly. "I am not scared of being alone. I think I was for many, many years. I have had very long relationships. ... I am a serial monogamist!" she says in the September issue of Vanity Fair. Cruise, whose divorce from Nicole Kidman is due to become final tomorrow, may be interested to know that Cruz is skittish about marriage - having seen her parents split this year.

NEW YORK -- On a dank morning recently, employees of Conde Nast are straggling into this magazine conglomerate's corporate headquarters in Times Square. It's gloomy enough that Anna Wintour, Vogue's editor in chief, has doffed her famous 24-7 sunglasses as she trudges toward the elevator. And a sleepy Mayer Rus, Baltimore City College Class of '84, and now design editor for House & Garden magazine, groans aloud when an assistant summons him. He's urgently needed in a nearby conference room where a TV crew is speaking with designer Isaac Mizrahi about his new home collection for Target.
