"Farrah was the most beautiful girl in every way," said an emotional Ryan O'Neal at the 2010 TV Land Awards.
With tears in his eyes and his voice choked with emotion, O'Neal paid tribute to his longtime partner Farrah Fawcett.
"To look back at Farrah's remarkable and too-short journey is to remember why we all fell in love with her in the first place," he said.
When INSIDE EDITION spoke to O'Neal on the red carpet he could barely hold back the tears.
"I miss her," he said.
O'Neal arrived with daughter Tatum, and he revealed they have put their differences aside and are now living together.
"Fathers and daughters occasionally need each other I guess...I hope she does," O'Neal mused.
Farrah was honored along with the show that made her a star, Charlie's Angels. Two of the Angels were there, Cheryl Ladd and Jaclyn Smith. Kate Jackson did not attend.
"I think our show was a hit because we were a family and tonight we're missing so many members of that family...[like] my sweet friend Farrah," Smith said on stage.
"She had a brilliant career, a courageous life, and [she was] a very special person; she should be remembered and honored," Smith told INSIDE EDITION.
The TV Land Awards air on April 24th, 2010.
