Tatum O'Neal Is A Survivor

Tatum O'Neal stopped by to promote her upcoming OWN docu-series, "Ryan & Tatum: The O'Neals," and her new memoir, "Found: A Daughter's Journey Home."

Howard told her that Ryan sounded like the worst kind of father: "He's the most horrendous human being on the planet."

Tatum said that Denis Leary agreed with Howard but hoped that she wasn't permanently scarred: "The worse the father, the better the daughter." Tatum said it was hard to imagine how "he lives with himself and he has to live with himself...[but] I've never done anything to anyone the way he has, so I don't have that experience."

Tatum denied ever being sexually abused ("I've never had sex with my father in my life. Not even any rubbing--nothing.") but credited the OWN cameras for accurately capturing the way Ryan abuses those around him: "In a way, he speaks for himself...he's really good television."
