Ryan O’Neal blasts Oprah Winfrey

2012-04-14 08:37

Ryan O’Neal has lashed out at Oprah Winfrey.

The 70-year-old actor and his Oscar-winning daughter Tatum starred in reality TV show Ryan and Tatum: The O’Neals on Oprah’s OWN network and Ryan has blamed the media mogul for low ratings.

When he was asked if he was worried that the reality show would tarnish his reputation, he told gossip website TMZ: “No because nobody saw it ... I don’t know if Oprah saw it.”

Tatum has previously said she found working on the show “weird”, explaining: “The term ‘reality show’ is really scary because there’s been some really bad programming.

Ryan and Tatum have a famously strained relationship, with the younger O’Neal revealing her father has hit on her accidentally in the past.

She said: “My father doesn’t really remember what I look like. He sees blonde hair, a black dress and to him, that’s just a chick. A girl. He didn’t know it was me, so he kind of swooped in and I had to remind him I was his daughter.

“That’s the second time that’s happened to me with him, but you know, he lives in another world.”
