Ryan O'Neal Wishes Oprah Would Have Used 'Her Magic' On Him And Daughter Tatum

ryan oneal says he needs oprah magic

Maybe she'll whip out the REAL magic during season two!

Yesterday, we learned all about a new reality show on Oprah's OWN network entitled Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals.

As a reminder, the show will explore the damaged relationship between Tatum O'Neal and her father Ryan O'Neal.

We were glad to hear they were making the effort, but we were skeptical about the fact that they feel the need to work out their problems on a reality show, and now it looks like Ryan is skeptical as well.

Here's what Ryan had to say about the show:

"I thought that was the thing – that Oprah would be there and use her magic on us. I thought she’d bless us and that would help. We spent New Year’s Even with her, and she was very encouraging. Then we never saw her again. And haven’t heard from her. When she finished her show, I supposed she’d come by and talk to us, but they said no, she’s going on holiday. So Tatum and I were left to deal with each other on our own."

"We’re OK, but I don’t know."

These things take time, Ryan. We agree, it would have been nice if Oprah were more hands-on during this process, but when it comes down to it, you've gotta be committed to repairing your relationship with your daughter because it's important to YOU.

Think about it!

What do U think? Will Ryan and Tatum fully repair their relationship? Will it make for a good reality show?

    Reality Show…blah..blah..blah..$$$$
    Oprah started a network exploiting people's personal relationships…for $$$$$
    Do you want to talk to Dr.Phil, Dr.Oz, or Suze Orman? The Dream Team!!!
    All 3 are owned by OWN…..(meaning know Oprah owns you! )

    Oprah now OWNS you!



  4. 4

    I think their relationship is as repaired as it's gonna get.



  5. 5

    lol is he even serious



  6. 6

    What, Oprah has some sort of magical healing wand that she waves over wretches like the ONeal's? Please, she has better people to blow off than these 2.



  7. 7

    I so agree that there is nothing remotely interesting on her show. All OWN seems to have on their schedule is celebrities and their problems. Cry me a river! Who needs to watch that crap.

    Ryan ~ Your relationship with Tatum might improve if you hadn't cancelled your second appointment with a real therapist.

    Expecting Oprah to work magic is silly. But expecting Oprah to care once the cameras are off is just delusional.



  10. 10

    Oprah probably threw up her hands at them and left screaming. They do need help but I doubt either can really afford it now a days.



  11. 11

    "magic on them"…….he means money on them"

    Why the heck would Oprah be part of that reality train wreck?



  13. 13

    OPRAH: Please don't sell out to stupid reality shows. I'm shocked. I thought you had more class than that. Is it worth the money? JUST FYI-MOST OF US ARE SICK OF REALTIY SHOWS and have been sick of Ryan for years. OPRAH's A SELLOUT FOR THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR.



  14. 14

    GROW UP Ryan and start listening to Tatum and Griffin. They were absolutely ABUSED by Ryan.



  15. 15

    Why does everyone else have to fix what you created?



  16. 16

    Well, if you're looking to be blessed, Ryan, you shouldn't be looking to Oprah to do that for you. She's a mere human just like you and your daughter. If you want to get blessed, you need to be looking to a higher place for that. Only God can bless you and your relationship with your daughter. Not Oprah. She's not Jesus.



  17. 17

    Come on, the man is a douchebag who's so disconnected from life, he hit on his own daughter twice, not recognizing it was her. Nor Oprah or God could mend their relationship unless he gets a brain transplant.



  18. 18

    WHICH JUST PROVES she just dont care



  19. 19

    He has to do a reality show. Farrah is dead now and he can't live off of her so he has to pull in money from somewhere to live on.

    Why would Oprah want to spend five seconds with this long-time abuser and his messed up daughter? He's a drunk and an addict who gave drugs to his kids — repeatedly over 40 years. He's a liar and an abuser who had an incredibly tumultuous relationship with Farah that included accusations of violence. He also isolated and controlled her at the end. These two need a team of psychiatrists. Again, why would this LOON think Oprah can fix him, or would even waste her valuable time trying. ICK, what a pig.



  21. 21

    So their relationship will only be fixed if Oprah is there to fix it? What an excuse! The only two people who can fix the relationship are Ryan and Tatum Oprah and her "magic" isn't a fix.
