I agree with Tatum...I have loved Ryan since I was a young teenager and he was on PEYTON PLACE as Rodney Carrington...but after everything I had read about how his children were treated and hurt..i lost respect for Ryan...But I do admire the way he stood by Farrah's side and helped her till the end..Now Ryan needs to wake up and be a father to his youngest son who's road has been paved in total destruction...Those kids are grown BUT they are still in need of a father to help and love them...his 3 kids have had a life of nothing but total destruction...It's sad that drugs ruin alot of families..GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SHOW!! unfortunately I don't get the OWN CHANNEL..Tatum... your road has been long and hard..Hope your children can understand that yea you screwed up but you are trying to get it back on tract...Godspeed

watching show is heartbreaking. Why does tatum bring up all this stuff in restaurants etc? would this not be better served with a trained therapist.
Each has issues, but Ryan is made to be bad guy as she knows how to push his buttons. He thinks they are going for dinner and she shovels a pile on him.
The triangle thing she pulls is so awful. Griffen thinks this, "My son, Keven, your grandson thinks you are responsible for my addition" Whoa, she should deal with what she thinks not put words in other people's mouths. She needs therapy. Ryan is going she isn't. What is she owning about her relationship and past with her own children.

Tatum needs to get over it. My god, she just keeps going and going and dredging up the past. Pisses off her old man and then starts crying like a little baby. She doesn't want to reconcile anything. She wants to get paid for torturing her dad. She's pathetic.

Ryan O'Neal, I like you, too, very much. I mean that, too, but please always just be very sweet, and loving to your beautiful, on the inside, and outside, gorgeous, very kind, smart, fun-loving, honest, humble, god-loving, and great actress of a daughter, Tatum. After all, she's really got a great, and strong heart, really always wants to make things right with you, to move forward, and the rest of the family, she loves God, too, and she loves you very much. She never, ever, ever stopped loving you, no matter what, please believe that, and never, ever will stop loving you at all. Love, forgiveness, and peaceful happiness amongst people, and family is what matters the most in life above anything at all that's negative.

Tatum deserves warm love, and warm hugs Ryan O'Neal, just as you do, and just as everyone in this world does. Nobody, and I mean nobody, deserves to be exempt from that at all. God knows that, too.

I like Ryan O'Neal and want him to definitely like himself, alone always. I also like Tatum O'Neal and definitely want her to like herself, alone, too. Everyone of us people are definitely entitled to our own individual self-pride. However, I just pray aloud to God that both Ryan, and Tatum end up peacefully reconciled again, like they both were before this last, recent falling out with one another. Really I do. Because they both deserve that as well. I totally mean that, too, towards both of them, and through our lord, God, too.

Please God, our merciful lord, and king, please help both Tatum, and Ryan to like themselves, and eventually reconcile together, again, please.

Also, one thing I've definitely learned over the years, especially over the last few, don't, do not look down on people with problems as lower beings at all. Don't laugh at, muse, rob them of their dignity, or act like/think you're better than them because they have problems you don't have. That's definitely not nice, not one little bit, and so not being Godly at all. Think about how you'd want to be treated if you were in their shoes. I certainly do, nowadays.

That also means, what I sincerely wrote above, that may God guide, bless, give comfort, hope, and strength, daily to, and love Griffin O'Neal, and his whole family through all their trials, and tribulations, now, and always.

I never thought us Blacks even cared about the O'Neals family! They aren't Whitney and Bobby or Michael and Janet! They weren't talking about Farrah when she died two years ago or anything. And Ryan is a horrible father/person and he is very senile! I didn't watch the reality show but I am rooting for Tatum. By the way, I read her book, Ryan is one of the worst fathers to ever walk the earth!

I like Tatum O'Neal, and would defend her to anyone. She's not perfect, and she knows she's not perfect or a saint at all, but she's also a great, hard-working, and promising actress, always was, she's kind, strong liberal heart, and beautiful, on the inside, and outside, has grace, and very good manners. Ryan O'Neal also looked so sweet with his cute dog, and petting him in their therapy session episode on their reality show as well.

Do you remember when Ryan O'Neal made a movie with Barbra Streisand called What's Up, Doc?
This was in the mid-seventies. Anyway, when he was making the movie, I read that he hurt his back and had to have surgery, so I sent him a get well card in the hospital. He sent me two autographed 8 x 10s photos and wrote the sweetest note on the back of one of them. I sent him a letter to thank him, and he autographed 5 MORE different photos and sent them to me, all personalized with my name.
I was so thrilled and surprised because the press he was getting was pretty negative. Nice man.

Awwwwwwwwww that's so very nice, Pleasure Beach Lover. So nice, and kind on you, and his part for you both to do what you did, the kind acts. No, I was not around at all when "What's Up Doc?" made in 1972, was out in theaters. Both my parents went to see it, though, were, and still are Ryan O'Neal fans, and loved it when they saw it in the theater. However, I do recall in the fall of 1989, when me, and my family first rented "What's Up Doc?" on vhs, and watched it, and ever since then we have all been enjoying it on both vhs, and dvd. Sometimes, it's been hard for me to stop laughing at it, it's just so funny, lol! What's more, I've also loved the book "Love Story", and the movie "Love Story" 1970 ever since I was twelve, back in 1987.

Ryan O'Neal is a winner regarding his striving hard to live, despite his prostate cancer, and working on certain issues with his kids daily. I'm very proud of, and happy for him and them. So are God and Jesus, whom also know he's a winner.

It really truly hurts my heart and soul now seeing and thinking now of some of the past mean comments I wrote about not saintly, but genuinely kind, winner of a human and fighter, and handsome, beloved, fine, intelligent actor Ryan O'Neal on here, only in another Topix forum section about him. Oh, I know I can't really ever take them back regarding him at all. It's only to our saviors God and Jesus that we humans can really do that. I do hope he forgives me though, as I really didn't mean them at all, and well, let's just say that sometimes other people have their own personal problems, only not actually realizing so, you know? Thus, sometimes, they blindly take it out on other people and their situations is all without really meaning to. I'm not like that anymore though, Ryan, I swear, and never will be again. And hey, I also very humbly write to you Mr. O'Neal, thanks so very much for not ever banning me from your Facebook page or website.
