Ryan and Tatum O'Neal to repair their relationship on reality TV

After decades of estrangement and a couple of failed reconciliation attempts, Ryan O’Neal and daughter Tatum are finally ready to reunite.

A report in Variety revealed the volatile duo hope to bury 25 years worth of hatchets on their proposed reality TV show, “Lost and Found.”

“From the moment I met Ryan and Tatum, I knew they were genuine about telling their real story,” reality TV bigwig and Endemol chairman David Goldberg said of the venture. “Of course they've had their share of trials and tribulations that have been very public, but ultimately this comes down to a father-daughter story that viewers will be able to relate to on many different levels.”

Apparently the pair decided the time was ripe to put the past behind them following the death of Ryan O’Neal’s longtime love, Farrah Fawcett — a particularly unexpected decision given their unfortunate exchange at Fawcett’s funeral.

“I had just put the casket in the hearse and I was watching it drive away when a beautiful blonde woman comes up and embraces me,” Ryan O’Neal explained in Vanity Fair last year. “I said to her, ‘You have a drink on you? You have a car?’ She said, ‘Daddy, it's me —Tatum!’ I was just trying to be funny with a strange Swedish woman, and it's my daughter. It's so sick.”

Eddie Cibrian bashes ex-wifeActor Eddie Cibrian has once again been accused of two-timing, but in a strange twist, the other woman in his latest alleged affair is none other than his ex-wife, Brandi Glanville, while the wronged party is said to be LeAnne Rimes.

According to a report in Star magazine, Cibrian and Glanville continued having an intimate relationship long after he opened up publicly about his love for Rimes.

“LeAnn is getting a bitter taste of her own medicine,” a Glanville pal said. “Eddie will keep cheating, because that’s just what he does.”

While Glanville confirmed the allegations when contacted by the Star, Cibrian responded by bashing both his ex and the magazine on Twitter.

“Once again my ex has stooped to a new low attempting to sabotage my beautiful relationship with LeAnn,” the actor wrote. “Not surprisingly the ONLY magazine that decided to run the story shares the same credibility and delusion as my ex. They should be ashamed of themselves.”

Dish on the fly A sappy ballad Michael Lohan co-wrote and dedicated to embattled daughter Lindsay Lohan called “A Father’s Love” will soon be rerecorded. Days after TMZ revealed an early version of the song as sung by Lohan’s co-composer Joe Vulpis, the gossip website reported that the Lohan patriarch plans to head to recording studio next week and sing about undying daddy-daughter love himself. … Despite the fashion lines and fortunes the Olsen twins enjoy, Mary-Kate Olsen wouldn’t recommend the child-star life she endured to get where she is now. “I look at old photos of me, and I don't feel connected to them at all,” Olsen revealed in an interview with Marie Claire. “I would never wish my upbringing on anyone."
