O'Neal enjoying reunion with Tatum

Ryan O'Neal and his daughter Tatum are filming a TV show together

Ryan O'Neal has said it's been wonderful having his daughter Tatum back in his life while they film a reality TV show about their troubled relationship.

The pair - who starred together in 1973 film Paper Moon - have recorded around half a dozen episodes of the as-yet untitled show, which has been commissioned for Oprah Winfrey's OWN network.

"She's wonderful to have back in my life," Ryan revealed, adding that the series was Tatum's idea.

"She sold it to me...frankly, I didn't think that anybody would be interested and so, I just agreed, hoping that it would go away."

Their father and daughter relationship was at its worst when Tatum wrote about her dad's alleged drug abuse and being a bad father in her autobiography Paper Life in 2004. The healing began at the funeral of Ryan's long-time companion Farrah Fawcett in 2009.

Tatum's ex-husband, former tennis star John McEnroe, told The Wendy Williams Show he hopes their three grown children won't appear on the series.

"It's an accident waiting to happen," he said.

No premiere date for the series has been announced yet.

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
