Oprah Winfrey

Ripped By OWN Reality Star --

She FAILED Us

Nobody watched Ryan O'Neal's reality show on the OWN network ... NOBODY ... not even Oprah Winfrey ... this according to Ryan O'Neal.

The 70-year-old Hollywood star -- who starred with his famous daughter on "Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals" -- was out in L.A. yesterday when we asked how he felt about O's admission that she wasn't ready to launch her network.

O'Neal replied, "I wish we had known that ... she should have told us."

When we asked if he was worried that the extremely low-rated reality show would tarnish his reputation .... he simply shot back, "No because nobody saw it ... I don't know if Oprah saw it."

We're guessing there won't be a Season 2.

I actually watched it a few times - he is a huge loser, and it was painful to watch his interaction with Tatum. It wouldn't have been renewed regardless of Oprah.

Well, I watched it and I loved it. I learned a great deal about my relationship with my own father. Ryan and Tatum mirrored us beautifully. It was like I had access to my father's mind. Thanks, O'Neals. You know what they say : If it helps even one person...

I watched it and was horrified by the way he treated his daughter! Poor little girl just abandoned by her father who only cared about his affair with that great actress Farah. He should be ashamed!

Everybody tried hard to make the network a success. It just didn't work out so it's time to move on. Ryan O'Neal shouldn't really blame anyone. If his show was good enough, it would have attracted viewers. I was unaware that Ryan O'Neal had a reality show anywhere.

Doesn't matter what channel he's on -
I would never watch anything this POS is doing!


He needs to help get all of his kids off drugs instead of trying to film a reality show!

Okay, I'll bite. Why would Ryan think he's interesting?
More interesting are reader thoughts regarding the website counter of George Zimmerman's website.

I think that we've had quite enough "reality" from the O'Neals over the years to cover us for the rest of their lives. We don't need a reality show from them; They've already had all the WTF moments and cliffhangers and a show isn't going to give us anything new (or even interesting).

I watched it and was not suprised by any of the actions of the family members. I feel sorry for his children he's the reason why they are so screwed up as adults.
