This is really sad to hear.

Check out the video (above), in which Ryan O'Neal opens up about his relationship with his daughter.
At first, he says that their relationship is WORSE than it was before joining Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals, but by the end of the video, his rep backtracks and says that the two are "still working on strengthening their relationship."
What happened, Ryan? Are you ACTUALLY working on strengthening your relationship, or did Oprah's people get to you???
Either way, we do hope that Ryan and Tatum eventually resolve all their issues! We would just LOVE to see these two on good terms!
What do U think? Will Ryan and Tatum be all right in the end???
Redmond O'Neal was pulled over for a traffic violation Tuesday when police allegedly found marijuana and heroin in his car.
The cops immediately arrested him, and searched his house where they found a loaded handgun.
According to his father,
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?
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.
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?
With the advent of reality television, there really isn't any such thing as a real celebrity feud anymore. Honestly, it seems that if you are desperate enough for attention or money or closure or money, you'll just bring your troubles to any producer and say, "let's make it a reality show."
The show is being pitched to networks right now, but we have to admit, we find this whole concept a bit unsettling. There are so many accusations of abuse surrounding their relationship. There were reports that he actually hit on her at the funeral of Farrah Fawcett.
Obviously, these deep have some dark issues, things we don't feel America really wants to know about.
Hopefully, no one will option it and we can all just forget this whole mess! (We're looking at you ,TLC! )

The Farrah Fawcett Foundation, which Farrah had founded during her struggle with cancer, helps fund alternative cancer research and treatment methods and aims to improve the quality of life of those who are currently struggling with the disease.
Her best friend Alana Stewart said:
"If I can help carry on Farrah's mission for the foundation, it's an honor for me. I feel almost like she's a guardian angel watching over me, and I feel like she's smiling down on us and very happy that she died for a cause. She felt that she could help a lot of people and she could give a lot of people inspiration, courage and hope. That's why she did the documentary and that's why she started the foundation."
Farrah's son Redmond, who got a day pass from the sober living facility where he's undergoing court-ordered drug rehab to visit his mother's grave on the anniversary, was said to be extremely emotional. Father Ryan O'Neal said, "He lost her, and he's fragile."
We hope Farrah's family can find peace in helping others who are fighting cancer.
