    There's a lot of stuff in here that I didn't know about. I knew about what Griffin said, what Patrick said and how Ryan was jealous and abusive towards Tatum. I had never heard of a father being jealous of a daughter. Having seen Paper Moon in the movies with my Dad, they reminded me of us. A real life story (about 1989/90) Farrah & Ryan were in NY seeing interior designers. They changed the venue from the design office to their hotel room. Farrah was plastered and the meeting lasted about an hour. To me, Ryan's appeal was his boy next door, not the predator, the vulnerable guy where the women would go after him. If you see Ryan and Farrah on YT interviews, their onscreen persona (as a couple) is fun, silly, sexy, light hearted. They were fooling the public until the drugs and abuse came out.

    I watched Tatum and Ryan's reality show years ago. I've always found her an interesting interview. She's an open book, a good conversationalist.

    How about being a fly on the wall here?

    "Diana told friends she wanted to marry Ryan O'Neal. But after their brief romance in 1979, he said of her, "Diana Ross doesn't want to show her body, doesn't want to do sex scenes on the screen and doesn't want to be black."
    He was too image-conscious in mercenary to marry a black woman back then. He was just using her for sex. And she fell for it. I was never a big fan of hers anyway, but he took advantage of her.

Originally he and Diana Ross were supposed to make The Bodyguard together, but when their affair fizzled out, so did the movie. He claimed that she wasn't black enough. Yeah, um okay because Ryan is the final arbiter on what makes a black person black...Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?
    Tatum has said that when he found out she was nominated and he wasn't, he punched her in the face.

It seems like his mom was a big contributor to his problems, but I'm also seeing just a general failure to protect, as well as possibly some genetic stuff -- addictive personality. I think he looks pretty good, all things considered.



    To me, it kind of feels like "second family syndrome". There are a certain set of guys who are terrible/missing/toxic dads the first time around. And then they mellow out, are not chasing as much tail, and they become either better fathers, or less bad fathers. That phenomenon is aided somewhat by children who WANT to have a good memory of their relationship with their dad - almost against all odds, sometimes.





    I have read about Ryan O'Neal off and on over the years, and I think that a lot of people have no idea that O'Neal was considered a worse (and even more successful) womanizer than Warren Beatty. That Beatty was a distant #2 in that regard. I think they were equally good looking, but with apologies to HWBL, I think O'Neal was in better physical shape. But I could be wrong. Also, O'Neal flew under the radar and did not have the overt rep that Beatty had, so people didn't have their guard up.
    Heehee, missed this. No apologies necessary, Mo, tastes differ. But Beatty being in worse physical shape than O'Neal...... I doubt it. As far as womanizing was concerned: even Dustin Hoffman supposedly was a bigger womanizer than Beatty! Some pix of both guys when they were in their prime, although there are far less bare chested pix of Beatty than O'Neal.

    That I remember. No one really did anything about it then. He didn't even do any jail time for that.

    ^ Yeah I didn't remember him being so...portly.

    Tatum was a really cute kid, but this pic is kinda creepy, no? I mean, who poses shirtless with their young daughter in a bikini? That top just basically covers her nipples. Obviously she was not yet developed, but still.

    ^^^Obviously, he did not protect his daugther from stuff like this, he probably encouraged it, because for a moment, she was more famous than him and he had to milk that.

    Didn't he also drag her around like a date as a kid, when he was in between girlfriends/partners? I think I heard or read that somewhere.

    That photo had a trademark look of a Francesco Scavullo shot, and I was right - he was the photographer. The two things I remember him for were great black and white photo technique and a portfolio of sometimes great and sometime very questionable shots. There is one of Brooke Shields at an even younger age (probably) than Tatum, that makes Tatum's shot look mild by comparison. Below is a Google image search of Scavullo celeb shots:

    ^ Yikes at the topless prepubescent Brooke Shields, damn that would never fly nowadays without someone getting child porn charges. Yeah I know nothing else was exposed but I won't even post it here. She was really exploited.

    I remember this one of Gia Carangi, damn she was gorgeous, I think this was a Cosmo cover.
