Ryan O’Neal hit on daughter at Farrah’s funeral

Ryan and Tatum O'NealRyan O’Neal admitted to Vanity Fair that he accidentally hit on his own daughter, Tatum O’Neal, at Farrah Fawcett‘s  funeral last month, because he didn’t recognize her. He explained what happened: “I had just put the casket in the hearse and I was watching it drive away when a beautiful blonde woman comes up and embraces me,” he said. “I said to her, ‘You have a drink on you? You have a car?’ She said, ‘Daddy, it’s me, Tatum!’ I was just trying to be funny with a strange Swedish woman, and it’s my daughter. It’s so sick.” When told about her father’s anecdote, Tatum replied: “That’s our relationship in a nutshell. You make of it what you will. It had been a few years since we’d seen each other and he always was a ladies’ man, a bon vivant.” O’Neal is reportedly also still angry about Tatum’s autobiography, which was published five years ago. “She wrote a book — bitch! How dare she throw our laundry in the street for money?” Tatum, 45, told Vanity Fair she could understand Ryan’s point of view, adding: “[He] has every right to be angry about the book; no parent wants to hear their kid saying s**t things about them… But what I wrote in the book was true. I’ve got a battle with drugs, but I’m a strong, independent person, and I fight for myself — and my father and I butt heads.”

    Agreed, Khristopher, you’re at the funeral of someone you professed to love, and you hit on someone? I don’t think so.
