Ryan O'Neal Stands Up Daughter Tatum For Planned Interview On 'The Talk'

Ryan O'Neal has caused another rift with daughter Tatum - he stood her up for a planned TV appearance on The Talk on Friday.
Ryan has been desperately trying to repair his rocky relationship with Tatum after the pair fell out 25 years ago - but now the movie star will have some extra explaining to do.
The two recently teamed up for Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals, a reality series on Oprah Winfrey's OWN TV network, and subsequently embarked on a short publicity tour to promote the show.
So when Tatum walked onto the set - without her father in tow - it sparked concern from the audience, who expected to see them both.
She explains, "I did hear that he was going to come. Then I did hear he wasn't. I wish him the best. I don't know what the deal is with my dad. I think he said he was 'talked out', (that) is what I heard."
But host Sharon Osbourne wasn't too pleased with Ryan's apparent irresponsible behavior - and she let him know.
She adds, "I live two doors down from him and the only thing I'd like to say is: 'One, you had a perfect opportunity here to try and make things right. Don't be an emotional coward. Face up to life. Don't hide, in your little house on the beach. Get your raggedy old a** here and be confronted.'"
