Ryan O'Neal Talks Tatum, Farrah, And More On Piers Morgan Tonight

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooOprah WinfreySad SadPerezTVTatum O'NealRyan O'NealPiers MorganReality TV

Last week, Ryan O'Neal was complaining that Oprah didn't use her "magic" on him and Tatum during their OWN reality series Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals.

Then last night, Ryan appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight (above) and he opened up about his relationship with Tatum, his thoughts on Farrah Fawcett's death, and other sensitive subjects.

Sounds to us like Ryan and Tatum's relationship is VERY FAR from being repaired. We'll see what Oprah can pull off with the new show, but at the moment it seems like there is A LOT more work to be done.

And as far as Ryan's comments about Farrah's death…all we can say is "harsh."

What did U think about everything Ryan had to say during his interview? Overall, do U agree with him? Or is he totally off?

  1. 1

    No one should give Piers any attention or view his show. He hounded Princess Di and crossed her multiple times in the UK media. He's just as bad as the media hounds that chased her car in the tunnel in Paris. He is an ugly man with no morals.



  2. 2

    Tatum, Griffin, Patrick and Redmon never had a chance with him as a father. He is needy, self serving, thoughtless, arrogant, druggie that is only out for himself. I don't see what Farrah ever saw in the man. Ryan is so hateful to his children that I can't help but wonder why they have anything to do with him. He is truly awful.



  3. 3

    I thought he was a complete jerk. He didn't take any blame himself, all he could do was blame Tatum and Griffin, who he wouldn't even mention his name. If he was a "hands on father" then why did all three of his kids end up with major drug problems? His kids may not have been perfect, but he is their father. He needs to get some help and stop blaming everything on his kids and take some of the responisbility himself.



  4. 4

    The whole family is F#$KED ! Gawd, he is ugly…he used to be so good-looking. What a trashy family. O'Neils, meet the Lohans !



  5. 5

    yeah, he is an arrogant, self-absorbed druggie who was more concerned about womanizing and drugs than his children when he was young….The reality is exactly what he has on his hands now because of what he did when he was young ( and as an older adult)….it is sad. I do think stress can kill…anyone who has lost someone to cancer can tell you many have died due to a lot of stress or conflict in their life….not all, but some….I think it can contribute….one's body can only handle so much.



  6. 6

    Ryan O Neal is just a big nasty pig. He blames everyone else for his own problems and addictions.



  7. 7

    So sad. Perhaps Tatum is better off without him. Why try to mend something that seemingly is so far beyond repair.



  8. 8

    Hire American. Dump this Brit.



  9. 9

    It's disgusting he is once again airing his own repugnant behavior for personal promotion. Once again, his kids pay the price with all his ugly words. He needs to own his own ***#@* and shut up.



  10. 10

    So many of these Hollywood people seem to have Narcissistic personality disorders. Check out the article on Wikipedia. Sad. Then they raise their kids to be Narcissistic as well.



  11. 11

    I remember way back in the early 80's when Ryan, Farrah, Tatum and Griffin were splashed all over the news. Ryan O'Neal is the biggest womanizer, self centered jerk. Most people that have followed this family through the years don't buy into his story and excuses. Tatum and Griffin had a rough life, tossed between both parents with alcohol and drug problems. Or Ryan chasing some new girl (young Melanie Griffith or Farrah) I'm surprised those two have made it this far in life, they're survivors. Yeah Tatum made mistakes, but she has always admitted to them. I would love to see her succeed and get a show on TV or a film career rolling again. I read her book and it was heart breaking as much as it was shocking to read.



  12. 12

    Wow. If only the rest of us could hold such personal accountability!



  13. 13

    He's got two things he can milk to try to make money: his relationship with his daughter and Farrah's death. He uses them shamelessly for profit and attention. Perez, this tendency is something you not only understand but employ yourself. This is why you don't either ignore him entirely or call him for the filthy twat he is.



  14. 14

    hes a gross man and all his kids have had problems because of him… hes a selfish person, and its a shame that someone as wonderful as farrah was stuck with him. he will doanything to make money.



  15. 15

    So much denial. I saw the same attitude in my addicted mother when I started going to AA many years ago…and still do. Few are victims if they don't want to be one.

    He sounded weak. His daughter was still a kid and he's complaining that she wasn't "supporting" him in his new relationship. Weak, weak man.



  17. 17

    What a jerk! He has absolutely no accountability and acts as if his kids were "born bad". He raised his children to be who they are. He he seems completely unable of acknowledging his childrens struggles, it is all about him. Tatum and Griffin I hope you know, he will never validate you and you need to accept that and move on. He will go to his grave without validating his children, and the rest of their lives will be an unfillable void. Cut him loose asap! It's called narcississitic personality disorder, and the children of these people go through absolute hell.



  18. 18

    How can you blame your own children for the death of Farrah? That's very sick talk… I also agree 100% with "iloverickymartin's" post



  19. 19

    Ryan always manages to make it about him, without admitting how he let down his kids and Farrah. Poor Ryan…boo hoo. He's a pitiful excuse for a father yet Tatum is still working to build a relationship with him and gain his approval. I feel badly for her. Coming from a family of addictive, ego-centric people I feel her pain. She'll never get the father she wants nor gain his approval because he is all about himself.



  20. 20

    Ryan Oneal is a disgusting human being and always has been. I feel sorry for his children.



  21. 21

    THIS GUY IS A DIRTBAG, WATCH YOUR BACK REDMON



  22. 22

    Re: poodlewithamohawk – WOW I NEVER KNEW THAT!



  23. 23

    I can't believe that Ryan blamed his children for his bad temper.
    i think he is pathetic!



  24. 24

    What about his other son - Patrick, the successful one. He wants nothing to do with this screwed up family



  25. 25

    Wow. This man is sick, disgusting and repulsive and all the bad things in the world….lame, to blame cancer on his kids and himself? dumb ignorant ughhhh
    these such be censored…it is a lot MORE offensive than porn or whatever may offend u



  26. 26

    too bad Tatum is in a reality show with her father on Oprah's network
    .
    she should- for her own mental health and sobriety- walk away from her father and surround herself with supportive loving friends and create her own "family" for herself
    .
    if the family you were born into is poison- then create your own healthy family
    .
    family is defined as people who love, nurture and support each other, who share the joy in their accomplishments together, and comfort each other in grief
    .
    Ryan O'Neal to me doesn't fit into that category for Tatum sadly-nor does he fit into a father category for her…
    and Tatum should not mourn the loss of a father that she really never had—-a great psychologist and loving friends will boslster her into having a terrific future without him being a part of it and she'll be better off and much happier because of that



  27. 27

    I have always loved Tatum O'Neal. Hopefully her Dad is saying these things because he is in so much pain himself. I can't help thinking that he doesn't really mean them. He just is lashing out at people because he is so sad himself. I just hate seeing personal agony and I hope that they all can find peace. I can see Tatum is trying. Maybe Ryan just isn't ready yet.



  28. 28

    nobody- especially Tatum should listen to anything this woman beating, drug addicted idiot says
    .
    this the man that came up to his own daughter at Farrah's funeral, and without even recognizing her and realizing who she was after years of estrangement….began to hit on her!!
    can you believe that
    Tatum actually talked about it on TV afterwards
    he is a despicable person and an even more despicable father!



  29. 29

    Tatum and Griffin RUN. Run as fast as you can from this man who is suppose to be your father. He is barely a human being. Don't hurt yourselves over and over by what he says. You are better people. I hate to see them keep trying and keep losing. All my prayers to Tatum and Griffin.



  30. 30

    Morgan is the complete package as to what is wrong with the media today.

    The man wouldn't know what morals were if they came up and slapped him in the face.



  31. 31

    I watched the whole thing on CNN. It was so disturbing.

    One moment, he'd be rather insightful and self deprecating. The next moment, no insight whatsoever.

    He blamed his children for pretty much everything, including the onset of Farrah's CANCER. That's repulsive.

    There is no mystery whatsoever where his kids' issues took root. What a horrible Father he proved to be.

    It seem like Piers was just stunned during much of this interview.

    I hope Tatum maintains her sobriety, it's a very hard road for her.



  32. 32

    Ryan O'Neal has been a jerk ever since he left Peyton Place for the movies in the late 60s. Piers sucks. Why watch?



  33. 33

    He is vile!



  34. 34

    Ryan you do the math. 3 kids 3 all have or had drug problems. Take responsibility.



  35. 35

    Ryan O'Neil has always been a user and a douche but his behavior when Farrah was dying put him over the top. He was a barnacle on her, sucking to her side to snatch a last grasp of fame and the reality show is exactly the same thing.



  36. 36

    Please tell me he's not blaming Farrah's cancer on his kids. *headdesk*

    He's a Froot Loop of the highest degree.



  37. 37

    I created an account just to say Ryan O'Neal's a pathological dirtbag. A sick, sick human being. Run, Tatum! Run! Leave him behind and move on.



  38. 38

    I would fuck Tatum

    On the actual t.v. interview, Ryan basically verbally disowned Griffin and his behavior saying something like he was going to do a D.N.A. test. Farrah would be livid! He's the one remaining parent now for the boy, and he says awful crap like that. Yeah, that'll help Griffin.
