Tatum O'Neal: Ex-Wife of John McEnroe Releases Memoir, Awaits OWN Documentary
Tatum O'Neal Set to Release Telling Memoir Ahead of OWN Documentary
It's human nature to be curious. We can't help but want to take a look at the next table at diner and see what that couple is doing. What has their life brought them? Why didn't I order that instead of the burger?
Granted, some stories are more compelling than others. When life deals you a long string of lemons, you write a memoir and tell the world about it. That is what Tatum O'Neal is primed to do this week.
O'Neal has lived through enough adversity for a few lifetimes. She has long since claimed to have been abused as a child. He childhood was a tumultuous one living with her mother.
She was so victimized, she would implore her father, actor Ryan O'Neal, to save her. He eventually did bring her home with him. She would later go on to win an Oscar for her role in Paper Moon.
She then entered the sports world as the wife of John McEnroe. The actress and passionate tennis player were married from 1986-1994. During that time, they produced three children.
McEnroe enjoys custody of all three. This is due to the drug addiction O'Neal fell back into when the couple divorced in 1994.
Then came a 2008 arrest for possession of cocaine. O'Neal has since sworn off all substances. She claims to have been clean since that arrest.
Brighter days are ahead, it seems. She will release a memoir on her life entitled, Found: A Daughter's Journey Home. This follows up her first auto-biography, A Paper Life.
The hits don't stop there. O'Neal will also get her very own documentary on the Oprah Winfrey Network, OWN. The film will feature O'Neal and her father. The title is reportedly The O'Neals: Ryan and Tatum.
O'Neal has such misery in her past, and such promise for her future. It is no wonder that we clamor for her words on paper. It is only human to hear a good story after all.
