I'm outside the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles, where Farrah Fawcett's funeral is about to be held.
We just saw her longtime companion, Ryan O'Neal, enter the cathedral.
Their son Redmond, who has been undergoing drug treatment within the LA County jail, has been given permission by a judge to attend the funeral.
He'll be let out for a maximum of three hours.
We also hope to see Farrah's fellow angels, Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson and Cheryl Ladd. But Farrah's publicist, Paul Bloch, won't say who is expected to attend.
I wasn't sure how many media outlets would be covering because of all of the focus on Michael Jackson. But a huge number of TV crews and still photographers are across from the cathedral.
Earlier we saw beautiful floral arrangements from Mark's Garden brought in. Some workmen also toted in giant foliage (trees that looked like they had been freshly chopped down) but then they carted them back out about 30 minutes later.
I'll have more updates later.
