Tatum O'Neal suicidal

"Actress Tatum O’Neal was allegedly suicidal and threatened to jump off the balcony of a home in Los Angeles last month, a report said Sunday.

Cops responded to a call for a suicidal person who said she wanted to take a leap at the property and ended up transporting the “Paper Moon’’ and “Bad News Bears’’ star to a local hospital, according to the website TMZ, citing law-enforcement sources."

Today's Blind Items - The 12 Year Old It has been said before that this B+ list celebrity offspring lost her virginity when she was in her early teens to an actor in his 20's back in the day. That was always bad enough, especially considering it was her mother who initiated that "romance" to get herself a part. However, it gets worse. Apparently from the time this B+ list offspring ALL of you know reached the age of 5 or 6 she had been molested by several permanent A+ list actors and directors. She was passed around between these men so her mother could keep getting roles and keeping her fame. When our offspring turned 12, the mom decided to raise the stakes and auctioned off the virginity of her daughter. It was won by this permanent A+++ list mostly movie actor who sweated his way through two or three minutes of sex with the tween. It was not that far into the future that he paid for the services of the offspring again with another female tween who ALL of you also know. Apparently he made them do things with other men while he directed the action and distributed the drugs. He especially kept the two teens well fed and high on drugs during the entire 12 hour ordeal where they each were forced to be with multiple men and women including the father of one of the young women.

Today's Blind Items - Messed Up I was going to use a stronger word in the title because this is something that blew my mind. There have always been rumors about it, but this past week, one of the participants admitted to me it happened. The person who told it to me is a permanent B list mostly movie actress who is a celebrity offspring and has celebrity offspring too. Way back in the day when she was barely legal, she seduced a female friend who was not even a teenager and gave her the first sexual experience of her life. For the second sexual experience of her life, she had the tween join our actress and the tween's dad in a threesome.

I enjoyed reading her memoir, she and her brother grew up feral.

Mom was an active addict for most of her life, dad is a shitbag. Everyone used cocaine in the 1980s and her ex used cocaine occasionally. He was an athlete in his prime and hyper focused on his career He had a huge stash of excellent quality coke Tatum consumed in a short period of time. He asked her "Did you use it all"? and was genuinely surprised at her appetite for drugs.

She is an example of a person who is just always going to be an addict. I honestly don’t blame her for being an addict. It’s just who she is destined to be - between genetics and early exposure/addiction that has permanently wired her brain and personality. She never should have had kids. Otherwise, let her live on drugs - like in one of those heroin colonies in Portugal. Just minimize the damage to others and let her live on drugs.

Ryan invested in Southern California real estate in the early 70s and it has made him millions of dollars. He has lived in the same house in Malibu since the 70s that he paid a $125k for back then.

I remained Ryan's companion on the Hollywood party circuit, growing inured to sex and drugs before I was in my teens,' Tatum writes. When she complained to her father that he was sleeping with her best friend [Melanie], who, at 18, was six years older, Ryan invited her to sleep in the same bed. 'I often did sleep in my father's bed, even when he had women over,' she writes.

I distinctly remember in 2011 when Tatum was hawking her 2nd book, 'Found: A Daughter's Journey Home'. It coincided with her reality show on OWN with her father, entitled 'Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals'. I happened to catch Tatum's interview with Joy Behar (during the short time Joy had her own show), and Joy kept asking Tatum personal questions. All Tatum could do was deflect..."It's in the book," or--better yet--"I wrote about that in my first book." The first rule of hawking a new book is to give a few juicy tidbits away...Joy could barely get anything out of Tatum, except vague recollections, tired anecdotes, or regurgitations of catch phrases she'd learned in therapy and AA/etc. It became apparent to me that she never fully dealt with whatever happened between her and her father in her childhood. Until she does, she either needs to cut him off, or get as far away from him as possible. No doubt part of the reason she's still trying to ingratiate herself to him is for financial reasons (as the poster above pointed out, his Malibu house will be worth millions when he dies). The one admission I recall from her during the Joy Behar interview is that her father hit on her on the sidewalk after Farrah's funeral...he saw her from behind and thought she was a cute blonde he could bed. Tragic.

I was wondering who the A+++ actor was. Marlon Brando sounds right. But Jack N would qualify?

She is never going to get over the abuse and her needy love for her father. As a child she was sleeping with her father and his lover(it was a threesome but she won't say it) and she was probably filled with insane jealousy. Griffin seems to imply he was abused as well and in ways he will not discuss in detail though he has discussed the emotional abuse and the violence. When Ryan dies if Tatum outlives him she is going to go into a tailspin from which she will never recover. At this point death can be her only release.

And remember when Joanna Moore Tatum's mother was seven her entire family was killed in a car accident. Her mother and sister immediately and her father a year later from sustained injuries. Then there is probably the physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of Ryan. Was he pimping her out as well for roles? A nightmare from which you can never escape.

I see your point, R95, but with certain people, you never know if they are even going to leave you in their will.

I recently looked at the trust / will of a family member (she wanted me to be the trustee) and I was surprised at the distribution. Plus, this family member did not seem like she was done deciding who / how much each person would get. I was rolling my eyes. I hate it when people constantly adjust their wills, depending on who is currently in favor.

I ended up saying no to being trustee.

I think the man Joanna Moore married after Ryan was abusive to Tatum and a Griffin.

Tatum did a podcast a few years back called “Tatum Verbatim “ that expands on what she put in the books I recommend listening if you’re interested in her story.

. In one of the episodes she interviews Griffin and they talk about the death of Francis Ford Coppola’s son. It’s sad and the amount of guilt and remorse Griffin carries around is telling. He is a broken man-and yes I know he is a murderer whose drug use caused that accident.

Ryan’s only concern after that happened was that Coppola would never agree to work Farrah or himself again.

Melanie Griffith was young (when the alleged, incestuous 3-some occurred), plus MG also was in a relationship with Don Johnson when she was 14 and DJ was 22. Melanie had issues of her own.

All the posters criticizing Tatum and saying that she should "own" her mistakes sound deranged. If I went through the things that she did, I would never want to be sober. There is no amount of therapy or any other treatment that can ever erase those memories. When you grow up with sociopaths as parents, you are never taught that your life has any meaning.

HA HA HA, puleeze. Streisand would never let another woman touch her under ANY circumstances, and if the third was a guy, she wouldn't go for that either. Babs needed to think a man was her "true love" even though she had all of those short affairs - the one with O'Neal was short, and he was screwing around with others at the same time. Diana, not so sure.

I enjoyed her podcast, on the Griffin episode I noticed they wouldn’t/couldn’t say Farrah’s name, Tatum referred to her as “the beautiful one” or used similar descriptors when they talked about her.

"Tatum and I still retained our daily routine. We’d run or take long walks on the beach. If either of us was up for a part, we’d read each other’s scripts. (Tatum is 15 during this time frame.)

"It was the evenings that were different. Tatum was no longer my regular dinner companion nor did she accompany me to parties. The evenings belonged to Farrah now." (Why can't you spend one or two evenings a week with your girlfriend? Why all of them?)

"I wasn’t sophisticated enough to know what to do to get over this hump. I had a habit of making molehills out of mountains. I had allowed my daughter to become too close to me and now I had somebody I wanted closer." (Wasn't sophisticated = lazy, did not give a shit; molehills out of mountains = denial, lazy)

Does this sound like a father who ever had healthy boundaries with his daughter? Or is this a complete narcissist who used his daughter for near-romantic companionship (at the very least), treated her like a work peer, and took her to parties as a drug buddy. And then, after bringing countless women home into his bed for sex, and driving Tatum crazy with neglect and jealousy, he finds his soul mate and drops her like a hot potato. He no problem abandoning his underage children for his own gratification. Not even waiting until they were 18 to move in with his girlfriend.

Barbra had no problems getting men when she was younger. She was having an affair with Sydney Chaplin while Funny Girl was in tryouts and dumped him after the show had its triumphant opening. He was pretty bitter and started acting up and being very unprofessional on stage. Like whispering in her ear 'nose.' Chaplin was brought up on charges but charmed(he was known for this) the judge and got out of the show with full salary until the end of his contract. As far as I know he had never done this, acted unprofessionally, before.

She also had an an affair with Shariff during the making of the film. While not a pin up Babs charisma, talent, and connections were a very powerful aphrodisiac.

Robert Downey blew a lot of chances, but he had so much talent that everyone kept hoping he'd pull himself together. In his 40s, he finally did. Tatum isn't as talented as Downey and she's 60.

IMO, a teenaged Tatum was only surpassed in dark blonde, Hollywood beauty at that time by Brooke Shields (tough competition). I just finished Mariah's book and she mentions several times (so it's obviously been brought to her attention from extensive therapy) that she has arrested development from family trauma which occurred when she was 12 (her sister attempting to and almost succeeding in pimping her out after drugging her, and then throwing scalding tea on her). Clearly the trauma Tatum went through was more intense and repetitive, but there is help if she will take it. Any good therapist would tell Tatum to cut off Ryan, which is what Mariah did with her sister (who later died of AIDS). At some point the continued interactions and need to please only do further psychological and emotional damage.

Fun fact gleaned from Mariah's book: one of her LA homes is Farrah's former home, complete with some of the furnishings.

There's a breed of humanity who watch for this, possibly former victims themselves, sometimes not. Predators hunting for the wounded and easy kill in a world of where power is wielded to abuse as a reward of success. The worst of it abides in places where the system feeds the imbalance, attracts victims, and rewards and protects predators. Hollywood and DC aren't at war with each other.

Tatum is deeply in love with her father every which way till Sunday. She is also filled with rage. She will never get over it. She has no discipline for another career not even when she was younger. All she can do is commercially peddle her suffering. There is nothing else there. So there will be no third act. Just more of the same until the end. She is doomed. You would know this if you had extremely narcissistic parents who traumatized you from a very young age making you feel worthless. From such a very young age it becomes part of your DNA the trauma rewires your brain and you never escape. Floral arranging might be used as therapy in a high end psych ward but the idea she'd make a penny from it is laughable. Her father owes her everything he has. Not that she'll get anything from him. He'll fuck her again after death.

Maybe he jilted her in the past life, and so she felt "jilted" in this one as well when she would see him with other women?

Don Johnson- I remember it was late 1999 or 2000 when he married a rich socialite in SF. She gave birth to their child and during her recovery, she took a walk alone with the baby. At the VERY SAME TIME, Don was followed by paps. Don drove to an adult bookstore. The paps got footage of Don walking around the store from the bookstores security camera. He made a purchase while wearing sunglasses. He moved on to a motel. He brought his brown paper bag inside with him. After a long while, Don left the motel bringing his paper bag with him. He drove to a highway rest stop where he took the paper bag and threw it away. He drove back to the wife and baby. The National Enquirer had a whole midsection of all of the photos. The paps went to the garbage can Don got rid of his bag in. There was only the brown paper bag in the can. The paps opened it to find Cop Daddy - a Latino xxx gay porno video, and a huge Caucasian dildo. Those photos were in the story.

Sorry the above was for R269. I'm struggling to believe this one. And if Enty is involved, you have to take it with a grain of salt. I also don't think he needed to hit on her for her to feel triggered by reuniting with him. I got super triggered after my dad (who abandoned me when I was a toddler, and who was an absentee alcoholic racist weirdo my entire life) visited me a few years ago. There was no drama, he's totally sober now and was acting pretty normal. I just got the heebie jeebies, and after he left I went into almost a dissociative fugue state for a week. So I don't think anything even had to happen at all at that reunion for Tatum to flip the fuck out afterwards.

There are strong parallels of the parent child dysfunction between Tatum and Ryan as there are in Candy and Tori. Perhaps Candy had a drug soaked threeway with Tori and BAG?

She has Rheumatoid Arthritis, according to what I have read. This is an autoimmune disease that is very serious. It doesn't ever go away and requires lifelong dosage of heavy duty meds (if you are lucky enough to get into remission). Your life is never the same after this diagnosis.

I know the deets because I was diagnosed late in life with this insidious disease. I take methotrexate once a week, forever. This is a low dose cancer drug. If you have flares, you are dosed with very toxic and expensive meds.

Have some compassion for this poor woman. She doesn't need to be second guessed by gossips. Have some compassion.

Not sure which thread you're responding to, R349. I see a lot of support and compassion for Tatum here, and only a small amount of bitchiness.

There's more bitchiness abt Streisand and her ass than Tatum on here. Of course Ryan is flagellated but deservedly so.

R349, my mum has rheumatoid arthritis and functions fine as a retired 68 year-old. I think the concern that any of us alleged "gossips" have (which--BTW--aren't you on the wrong website if you're avoiding gossips?!?) is that Tatum not jump off a balcony or overdose because of the years of abuse Ryan has put her through. None of that is gossip...she did actually try to jump off the balcony, and her father has severely abused her over the years.

I'm the former "Tatum O'Neal troll", I quit last year and made a thread about it. I apologized to Tatum last year and I regret trashing her.

Wish her all the best.

How did you apologise, TO’NT? Phone call?

R353 probably thinks he was the reason Tatum threatened to jump.

Good for you for making amends, TONT. Hope you're doing better now.
