This casa high school they sent Redmond to down in Mexico sure did Redmond some good.

And guess what?

They had parent seminars too!

None will ever know what they both picked up down there.

The government in Mexico did shut the school down back in 2004 but they have opened a new one in Rosarito called Oceanside. Same curriculum, same use of restraints, samt seminars.

10-15 years from now - who will be among the students. A Ritche, a Hilton or a Spears?

This is what Ryan wants to teach his son? His child? So,e parents would do anything to keep their children off and away from drugs. This loser encourages it. What a pithetic father.

Cleopatra: You're an idiot. Again, BOTH of Ryan's other children have made allegations of drug abuse, child abuse and neglect., well after they were out on their own....both have grown up to have drug problems of their own. Griffin claims the altercation he had with Ryan last year was his efforts to secure his brother from going out and getting more drugs. And what did Ryan (who was out to dinner while his strung out son, Redmond, was trying to go out and get drugs) do as a result? He tried to kill Griffin with a fireplace poker and struck Griffin's pregnant girlfriend instead.

It's people like you who have turned a blind eye to gorgeous Ryan's abuse of his children for three decades and, as a result, destroyed the lives of three children who clearly never had a chance at a normal life.

Funny how you claim that people are convicting Ryan before he has had a trial, but you don't once claim people are judging or convicting Redmond. Do I see a double standard here?

HOW DO YOU NOT GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER BY THE TIME YOU TURN THE AGE OF 67? HOW BY THE GRACE OF GOD ARE YOU GIVING AN OPPORTUNITY IN THIS CRAZY BUSINESS AND STILL HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT? THIS IS UTTERLY DISGUSTING! ON TOP OF IT - RYAN HAS A KID - WHAT KIND OF ROLE MODEL IS HE? JUST KNOWING YOU HAVE A KID SHOULD MOTIVATE A LITTLE RESPONSIBILITY IN THE LOWEST ELEMENT OUT THERE. BUT OBVIOUSLY THE ADDICTION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN RYANS LIFE!! WHATEVER! MORE HOLLYWOOD TRASH - GIVING HOT BAIT FOR THE MEDIA TO PLAY WITH.

WOW that’s really sad that all you have to do in life is put other down, the kids got a problem, it has nothing to do with his looks, he most likley has to get stoned to put up with UGLY people like you. I am sure you all are just drop dead gorgeous and will have or had perfect children. and when you don’t I hope the people that around you are a hell of a lot kinder the you people are. Maybe you should all take a good look at your self and step out of you glass house, and see that sometimes others need some compassion not someone that is just heartless

Those of you who are going on and on about how ridiculous it is for these actors to not be able to handle life need to read Tatum's autobiography. The behavior in Ryan's children did not result from a spoiled or overindulged life. On the contrary, these kids were abused, neglected (and sexually abused because of it) and brought into a life of drugs BY RYAN at a very young age. When Tatum won nominated for the Oscar for Paper Moon, her father refused to attend the awards with her. That little girl in a suit attended by herself. And when she brought the Oscar home, her grown father didn't praise her, he punched her in the face with a full fist. Tatum, at like 12 years old, was left behind in Europe (by Ryan) ALONE and had to find her way home to California BY HERSELF. 12 years old. She struggles everyday with her sobriety. But she suffered a lifetime of abuse and demoralization. It's amazing she's not dead yet. But she tries. I feel bad for her when she fails and I feel great for her when she succeeds. This is a girl who deserved a better family and she didn't get it. You can never get your childhood back and you have to fight each day to maintain a normal adulthood. I wish her the best and I hope her brother's find their ways out of that madness.

Well, Ryan has cancer, Farrah has cancer and their kid Redmond doesn't give a hoot obviously -- I bet he put the drugs in his Dad's room, then there is the once talented Tatum, my gosh how can all this be intertwined? Ryan and Farrah are both probably doomed with the types of cancer they have, I guess I would be doing drugs too if I had brats like these who don't give a hoot about their moms and Dad!

This is proof that addiction is hereditary. Even fame cannot keep they straight. How sad, it's no surprise that Tatum is in the mess she is. This whole family needs an intervention!
