Ryan O'Neal hit on daughter Tatum at Farrah Fawcett's funeral



Tbd-tatumoneal080409 It's apparently been enough time since Farrah Fawcett's death that Ryan O'Neal can trot out the more profane moments of those dismal days -- such as how he hit on his own daughter at his longtime partner's funeral. You're not helping your case very much there, Ryan.

"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 told Vanity Fair. "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."

You see, their relationship had been so strained that he hasn't seen her in years, he claimed. At least he recognizes that inadvertently proposed incest before Farrah was even in the ground is gross, but Tatum says she's fine with the mistake.

"That's our relationship in a nutshell," she said. "You make of it what you will. It had been a few years since we'd seen each other, and he was always a ladies' man, a bon vivant."

Well, with a dad like that, how did you think she was going to take the proposition from a strange old guy?
