Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals
Is anybody watching this show???
First of all I had NO idea that Papermoon was played by real daughter and father! Pretty neat
Okay I have seen all the episodes so far. Tatum was really... and I mean R.E.A.L.L.Y affected by her dad abandoning her when he met Farrah Fawcett. She's 47 years old now... and I don't know... she's making this show to get some reconciliation with her father but she carries her past with her so much and affects the relationship. She kind of wants to blame everything on her dad and I don't think that is right.
You only have your parents with you for so long and Ryan IS trying, he really is. But when she starts remembering the past all over again... is just not good... at all! The past is the past! Ryan can't go back in time to change what he did.... but he's there now and he's trying but Tatum is just not going to let go of the past.

Well I haven't seen this. From watching this I do see alot of my own struggles (not drug or drinking) with my own Dad. With my Dad I can forgive the past, He just is still living a very selfish life. He doesn't seek me, and I to see that in Tatums relationship with Ryan still. A girl needs her Dad and when she hasn't had him there is a HUGE void. I do hope they work things out. It will require help so I hope they are up for it even with cameras rolling.
