CBS: Tell us about creating The Farrah Fawcett Foundation (FFF) that started during Farrah's battle with cancer. Do you think Farrah would be honored and proud of the foundation?

Alana Stewart (AS): "Farrah created the foundation 2 years before her death. She wanted to further research in cutting edge and alternative treatments for cancer as well as promote awareness, early detection and prevention.

She also wanted to help people suffering from cancer today. My goal as president is to uphold Farrah's wishes and keep her memory and legacy alive. I think she would be proud of the foundation's commitment to her vision and in the work we've done over the past several years."

CBS: What are some of your favorite memories of Farrah and your friendship together?

AS: "I have so many wonderful memories of the 30 years we were friends — family get-togethers at Thanksgiving and Christmas over the years, girlfriend-time at the beach, getting our nails done and reading fashion magazines — the many hours we spent on the phone talking about our lives, our children, everything imaginable.

We took a number of trips together and I particularly remember the last one to Texas to see her dad in Houston and then we went on to Nacogdoches to see my uncle. She was in the middle of her cancer treatment but was feeling better and we were like two girlfriends driving across Texas, stopping for barbeque and Texas fried chicken. No matter what, we always found something to laugh about. Even in the toughest times during her battle with cancer, she still maintained her spirit and sense of humor."

CBS: Congratulations on your granddaughter Delilah! How is she doing? What is she into?

AS: "I just spent most of the weekend with Kimberly, my daughter, helping her with Delilah. She's been a full-time mother 24/7 and by the weekend she really needs Nana (that would be me) to give her a break now and then.

Delilah is 14 months now and a barrel of energy. She's just adorable and quite a little character. She's very strong-willed, stubborn and doesn't like to take no for an answer. I guess you could say it runs in the family."

CBS: When you first heard of Kimberly's pregnancy, how did you react? Do you think motherhood has been transformative for her?

AS: "I was, of course, surprised when she told me, but totally supportive. She's an amazing mother. As I said, she's hands-on 24/7. I have great respect for her."

CBS: Kimberly seems to be loving motherhood. How is she adjusting to being a single mom? Is Benicio del Toro around to help?

AS: "Benicio adores Delilah and he and Kim make all the major decisions about her together. Although being an actor, he's away working a lot, he really makes an effort to be around as much as possible."
