I'm Confused


I confuse easily. I know this, and I appreciate all of you always helping me out. So, this week Griffin O'Neal decided he needed to get a little attention and so he talked to People. Not people as in everyday people, but People as in the magazine I like to refer to as Kneepads.

Anyway, Griffin said that he doesn't speak to his dad, and has not for a very long time but still wanted to talk to the magazine anyway and if they had a few bucks to pony up, that would be great. Griffin said his family is screwed up and if you want to be normal you have to get out. As in nothing to do with them. Otherwise you will be messed up. And where is Griffin now? Glad you asked. He lives with his sister Tatum. Yeah, and last I checked she was family.

Griffin says he is two years sober now so I guess when Tatum went out a couple of months ago to score, that's the reason she left him at home. Griffin does actually have some personal drama and is suffering from a rare bone disease which may result in the amputation of his left leg.

"It's horribly painful. It's off the scale on the pain."

Well, if he is sober even with all that pain and possible loss of limb, that is pretty damn impressive. I don't know if I could do it. I'm not saying he is doing it either. I'm saying if he's doing it, then it is impressive.

So the crack was for HIM not for her.
Now it all makes sense, Tatum taking the blame for her sick brother, how commendable........

Honest to God, this has got to be the most effed up family in Hollywood.

sorry for the disease, though. can't be easy with that family.

And how does Farrah fit into all this??

Sylvia said...

Farrah is probably popping pills to avoid the mess of her family.

Molly said...

farrah is just as messed up. i wonder how she's doing with her cancer. has anyone seen any updates on that?

Sylvia said...

Molly, she came out on ET but only showing that she look good.

Molly said...

Yeah, Griffin's plight is sad, but Farrah had 'em all topped with ass cancer.

God, please forgive me...that was overly mean. But I mean, c'mon!

These people really are FUBAR.

Gad -- Griffin, Ryan -- I'm getting confused about all this. Oh, that's right -- they're half-brothers who are both involved in drugs. Glad if Griffin is sober.

And yes, you do have to get away from your family if they are damaging to you.

Maybe he's with Tatum to help her try to stay sober.

I hate saying it, but Griffin looks terrible. He looks like he is suffering more than a bone disease.

Man, I remember seeing a story on Griffen back in the late '80s about Ryan knocking his front teeth out. Add that to the stories of sexual abuse Tatum has talked about and really it's kind of admirable and amazing that they're even sane. I'd be hooked up and out...
