Ryan and Tatum O'NealRyan and Tatum O'Neal's happy ending at the end of 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals' wasn't all that real, according to Ryan.

Ryan told TV Guide Magazine the show hurt -- instead of helped -- his relationship with Tatum. He said the two are no longer speaking.

"We only reconciled on the show," he told the magazine. "Not in life. In fact, we're further apart now than we were when we started the show. So thanks, Oprah, for all your help."

Ryan and Tatum Pledge to Continue Therapy on the Finale of 'The O'Neals' (VIDEO)

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal on 'Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals'Ryan and Tatum O'Neal have a lot of issues to work through, more than they could get to in one season of a reality TV show. On the finale of 'Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals' (Sundays, 10PM on OWN), the recently reconciled father and daughter pledged to each other that they would continue in therapy together, even after the cameras turned off.

Ryan seemed reluctant to have the therapy on camera. "Is it healthy to air your dirty laundry?" he said. "And should family members do that?" Tatum disagreed that there were "a lot of dirty laundry aspects to it." Still, she brought some perspective to the therapeutic process. "We're not able to fix the past," she said. "The past is the past. And I know, dad, how you really feel. I know you have great regret."

Tatum and Ryan O'NealRyan and Tatum O'Neal's rocky relationship has seen quite a few ups and downs over the years, and viewers have gotten more than a glimpse into the madness with 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals,' their OWN docu-series.

Meant to repair their father-daughter bond and end their 25-year estrangement, the eight-hour run of 'The O'Neals' actually managed to have some heart along with the ongoing drama and re-hashing of arrests, addictions and betrayals.

So where will Ryan and Tatum end things in this weekend's finale (airs Sun., 10PM ET on OWN)? And is a true reconciliation really possible after so many years and so many issues?

Judging by this deleted scene, it looks like it. Instead of fighting or sitting in a therapy session, this finale sneak peek shows them bonding in a different way: at a Hollywood dance class. There's sweat, weird spoken word-style messages and plenty of arm flailing ... in short, it's kind of awesome.

'The O'Neals': Ryan Still Doesn't Get How Tatum Felt Abandoned (VIDEO)

'Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals'The rift on 'Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals' (Sun., 10PM ET on OWN) isn't something that's going to be able to be healed over a few short episodes. But it was encouraging seeing them talk openly about what happened during Tatum's teenage years, even if Ryan still doesn't seem to get it. At least he didn't run away this time.

When she talked about being left alone, he tried to argue that she wasn't. She had her mother, who'd already given up custody of Tatum to Ryan, as well as "many, many friends," he told her. "You were a famous person."

"You hear how crazy that sounds," she said to him, but he didn't. He refused even to acknowledge that she was still a kid at the time, talking about how sophisticated she was for 17, and how she got her own apartment.

Tatum O'Neal Talks Parenting Father Ryan on 'The O'Neals' (VIDEO)

Tatum O'Neal talks about her father Ryan's sense of humor on 'Access Hollywood Live'Sometimes, parents do the darnedest things. Like in one episode of 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals,' in which Ryan taunts his daughter, Tatum, a recovering alcoholic, with a bottle of tequila. Tatum spoke about that incident Wednesday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) and how it represents something of a role reversal in the traditional father/daughter relationship.

Tatum acknowledged that her father has a quirky sense of humor that is sometimes misunderstood. "It's terrible, but at the same time, that's my dad," said Tatum. "He's funny. But you see how I react on the show, I go, like, 'Oh my god, that is not funny.' So in a way, I can be the parent, too."

Tatum O'Neal, 'Chelsea Lately'The roles were a little reversed with Tatum O'Neal on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!). O'Neal has been rather famously estranged from her difficult father, Ryan, for decades. That relationship is now the subject of the series 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals.' But O'Neal wanted to talk about Chelsea Handler's father.

"He's a real hot mess," Handler admitted. "Right now he's an even bigger mess than your father."

Tatum then asked if the story was true that Handler's father had gotten them upgraded to first class on a flight by saying he and Chelsea were married.

After Decades, Father and Daughter Reunite on 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals' (VIDEO)

Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals' series premiereThe relationship between father and daughter actors Ryan O'Neal and Tatum O'Neal has been strained at best over the past couple of decades. So estranged were they, that Ryan hit on his daughter after failing to recognize her on the day of Farrah Fawcett's funeral.

Their attempted reconciliation is at the heart of 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals' (Sun., 10PM ET on OWN).

The eight-episode series premiered with Tatum, having relocated to the West Coast after nearly 25 years estranged from her father, in an attempt to reconnect. She's battled her own demons, particularly a volatile marriage to tennis pro John McEnroe and heroin addiction, but is sober now.

Tatum invited her father to her birthday party, and this time he showed up. The pair laughed and reminisced about her crazy 15th birthday bash, which saw thousands of people show up, including Brooke Shields and Michael Jackson.

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal Try to Work Things Out on 'Good Morning America' (VIDEO)

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal on 'Good Morning America'Those who enjoyed watching the father-and-daughter team of Ryan and Tatum O'Neal in 1973's 'Paper Moon' might have thought they were seeing an ideal Hollywood family. It was clear that the pair worked well together -- Tatum, then 10 years old, became the youngest person to win an Oscar when she claimed Best Supporting Actress. Thursday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC), the pair talked about how they might use that on-screen chemistry to help resolve decades of estrangement on their new OWN reality series, 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals.'

"It was a way back," said Ryan. "There weren't that many paths. This looked promising because we work well together. We have a history. I thought maybe we could make more history."

Tatum agreed it would be a good setting. "We do work well together," she said. "Let's have that conversation in a work setting and we will sort of find our way back that way."

There was a light moment when Robin Roberts said there were two sides to the story. "Well, then let's hear mine," quipped Ryan. "Perfect," replied Tatum. The pair agreed their lives would be enriched by reconciling, and at the very least, the comic timing is still there.

Ryan and Tatum O'Neal Team Up For Reality TV Show

by Moviefone Staff, posted Aug 5th 2010 4:00PM
Ryan O'Neal and Tatum O'NealThe squabbles and infighting on TV's current family dramas will be nothing to the possible reality TV show being shopped around by Ryan O'Neal and his daughter, Tatum O'Neal.

Variety reports that the estranged pair are now living together for a new show called 'Lost and Found' -- a "docusoap" about to be pitched to networks.

Apparently, the idea came after the death of Farrah Fawcett, and now "the duo will undergo therapy together, and also attempt to get to the root of the resentment Tatum has held toward her father." And, of course, amuse the masses with their dysfunction.

The show will also watch them head off for auditions, date, and the rest of life's daily happenings.

Rescue Me: Drink (season finale)

After 22 episodes that didn't always feel all that cohesive, this was a finale that truly tied it all together. Rescue Me has had some memorable cliffhangers in the past, but this easily trumps them all not only for dramatic effect but for the potential lasting effects as well.

We'll get to all that because there really is a lot to discuss when it comes to "Drink." From the pettiness of Janet and Sheila to Damien's place at the 62 Truck house to the Gavin drinking epidemic, it was all answered in the comically twisted and dark fashion that we've come to expect from Rescue Me. Bottoms up.

The penultimate episode. Only one hour left to go in Rescue Me's massive 22 episode fifth season. There's been a lot to love, a lot to hate, orange (and teal!) penises, and plenty of drinking. Before I go on, I should point out that FX did end up sending out the final two episodes to critics (which is the only reason you're reading this right after the show has aired), and in an effort to make sure my reaction and speculation is as pure as possible, I watched and wrote up my review of "Jump" without having laid an eye on the season finale yet. So rest assured that anything that follows isn't a spoiler, and if it is? Well, good for me then.

This whole season of Rescue Me has been sort of a question mark for me. That's no secret - it's been excellent, but trying to determine what direction it's headed in has been a little tough. Obviously, the past four or five eps have really focused on Tommy's Sheila vs. Janet dilemma and I'm pretty sure it's safe to assume that the final two episodes are gonna stick with that trend. How do I know? Well... I don't. Last night's episode was the last one FX sent out for early preview, so I'm basing what's after the jump on my own speculation and one potential HUGE spoiler. So there. You've been warned.

What's that old saying? Chances are someone else has already said it better than you... or something like that? Well, this whole season of Rescue Me I've been looking for the right words to describe just how exactly I felt about it. There hasn't been a bad episode this season and I doubt any of the final three will disappoint either, but still - something has just been off.

Well, leave it to the show's co-creator, Peter Tolan, to put it in simple English at the TCA: when dealing with a shorter season (as in 13 vs. 22 episodes), you can focus on the quality of each episode (rather than being forced to move on to the next immediately). That's what I meant to say.

Rescue Me: Carrot
(S05E18) "Dude, I swear to God, you'd be a goddamn millionaire if you just cut that thing off and sold it to science." - Franco

This was easily the most polarizing episode thus far in Rescue Me's fifth season. There was a lot to love and, in my opinion, a lot to hate. It was extremely uneven, featuring a pointless dream sequence and played out gags. However, it ended with what will ultimately, I believe, go down as the best scene of the season and easily one of the best in the series to date, which can only mean one thing - Callie Thorne has done it again.

At the end of last week's episode, I have to be honest -- I was dumbfounded. To abandon something that Rescue Me has so steadfastly built up as a pillar of what makes this show tic - namely, the collective on again/off again sobriety of the Gavin clan - seemed ridiculous to me. One Tommy Gavin speech and poof - everyone's boozin'.

But with the "let's go find an AA meeting" option suddenly off the table, I tell ya what - it's a lot more fun. I've said it before, but as viewers, it says a lot about us when we find the addictions, weaknesses, and vices of others as sources of enjoyment, but why the hell not? That seemed to be the theme of this week's episode anyway as we witnessed Tommy get his balls, figuratively speaking, wedged right into a Janet/Sheila vice-grip.
