💔📺 Soapland’s Diva, Morgan Fairchild, Bids Farewell to Her Man of 36 Years 🕯️😔
TL;DR: Emmy-nominated actress Morgan Fairchild has shared the saddening news of her long-term partner and fiancé, Mark Seiler’s death, pointing to long COVID as the cause. Despite Seiler’s existing Parkinson’s diagnosis, it appears COVID’s brutal grip didn’t let go after his third infection. As a note, this ain’t an advice column or a recommendation, but let’s keep in mind the importance of protective measures as the pandemic continues.
From the glitzy screens of ‘Falcon Crest’ to the stark reality of life, Emmy nominee Morgan Fairchild’s world took a sorrowful turn with the loss of her fiancé, Mark Seiler. Living the ‘until death do us part’ vow, albeit unofficially, the couple had been inseparable for an incredible 36 years. This soap opera queen, known for her captivating presence, had her Twitter followers teary-eyed as she disclosed the heartbreaking news of Seiler’s passing on July 7.💔
Now, we all knew Seiler had been waging a battle with Parkinson’s since 2016.🥊 But who’d have thought it would be COVID that’d take him down, especially after he’d knocked out the nasty virus thrice? You gotta ask, is this a chilling reminder that we’re still caught in the pandemic’s relentless clutches?
Fairchild, through her tears, remembered her partner as a “warm, brilliant, and very funny man.” Sure, grief’s been a tough beast to tackle, but the ‘devastated’ actress still found the strength to urge her followers to care for their loved ones, and maybe, just maybe, to put on that mask.🎭
Isn’t it something that Fairchild, amidst her personal tragedy, continued to push the health message, even though her life has taken a painful turn? Speaking of turns, the couple’s love story turned its first page in the 1980s, post-Fairchild’s first marriage. Ever since, they’ve been painting the town red, hand-in-hand, inseparable.
So, what does their decades-long love story tell us about modern relationships? In a world where “forever” seems to have an expiry date, weren’t they a testament to enduring love? Fairchild, once asked if marriage was on the cards, replied, “We’re both getting older…we may just leave it the way it is right now.” Isn’t it refreshing how they redefined commitment without a ring or a walk down the aisle?💍🚫
Fairchild, who shot to fame with CBS soap ‘Search for Tomorrow’, made many a heart flutter with her performances in ‘Flamingo Road,’ ‘Paper Dolls,’ ‘Falcon Crest,’ and not to forget, Chandler’s mom on ‘Friends’. The shining star of Soapland may be going through a dark time, but she continues to be an inspiration, both on-screen and off.
But here’s the question that leaves us all with a lot to ponder: As we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, is Fairchild’s personal tragedy a stark reminder of the continued threat? And more importantly, isn’t it high time we turned the page and wrote a safer, healthier chapter for all of us? 🦠🌎🤔
