Suit Filed Over 'Farrah's Story'

A producer has sued Farrah Fawcett over a new documentary about her battle with cancer -- on the eve of the show's broadcast. Craig Nevius, who worked with the veteran sex symbol on a reality series, claims he was supposed to have creative control over "Farrah's Story," which airs on NBC tonight. The film -- essentially "a self-written obituary," reports Reuters -- shows the actress shaving her famous blond locks; later, bedridden and medicated, she barely recognizes son Redmond O'Neal when he visits her on release from his drug-related jail time (hiding his shackled hands and feet).

Wow, suing a dying person. Classy. Just when you think Hollywood types can't sink any lower. I'm taking note of your name, sir, so that I don't accidentally view any of your productions in the future.
