Remembering Gino Hernandez & Farrah Fawcett

April 9th, 2010 1 comment

The Blonde Bombshell and the Handsome Half-Breed. (Incidentally, Farrah was the one who courted Gino with roses.)

This morning at KFR, we salute one of the greatest love affairs of all time–no, no, dah-ling, not Austin Idol’s obsession every time he gazes into a mirror. I’m talking about one of the most torrid-yet-brief romantic liaisons the wrestling business has ever known (which covers a helluva lot of ground): Gino Hernandez and Farrah Fawcett. (Way before Brangelina and TomKat, there was Farrandez.) Oh, if only the rigorous demands of their respective entertainment professions hadn’t kept them apart. (Supposedly, Gino was also insanely jealous that Farrah’s poster outsold his.)

Think Tommy Rich ever had a woman like Farrah? Not on your life. After all, as Gino says, “It’s all about quality–not quantity.” (At least that’s what he tried to explain to Georgia Championship Wrestling commentator Roddy Piper–I think.)
