He’s about to turn 25 and it seems Redmond O’Neal has spent most of his life in rehab or jail. Having drug-oriented parents DOES make a difference, it seems. During his current six month stint at Impact rehab, Redmond took his first 24 hour pass and went right out to do drugs. Ironically, or not, his father Ryan has been visiting him on a weekly basis. Now Redmond has been locked up again and charged with violating probation, which could get him six years in prison. If his mother’s tragic death didn’t inspire this guy to clean up his act, we can’t imagine what WILL.

    Nothing will save this kid, cause he’s never had to pay for any of his actions. Always getting off, given probation, given rehab options, a father who does drugs with him, there’s never any downside for his actions. MAYBE hard time in prison will work but at this point, the kid is a lost cause. I wish him luck but don’t hold my breath.

    This is the future for Charlie Sheen’s kids with Brook. Take a good look Charlie!

    Jesus Himself declared there is a heaven and there is a hell. It’s time someone pulled out the big guns, took Redmond into a bare room and educated him about eternity. If I am called a Bible thumper, so be it. Has ANYTHING else ever steered him in the right direction. Think of this before I am cursed out.

    Neither of these unmarried parents was a good role model for that boy. When he saw their lack of morals, that might have been the turning point for him starting down the long dark road of drugs.

    Poor kid – never had a chance, he is a product of his environment.

    So sad, what a waste.

    I agree w/ Cal — not just the genetic factors, but the environmental factors as well. And look at Redmond’s face: he has completely ruined whatever decent looks he once had w/ drugs and drink. Yikes.

    He should be treated for mental illness not drug rehab. He can go to rehab from here to plum nelly and it ain’t gonna do nuthin.

    Some people are just bound to be jailbirds, and Redmond seems like one of those people. I think Farrah was a good parent and tried her best to help him, but with a father like Ryan O’Neal, poor Redmond was cursed from birth. No further explanation needed. I also agree with L’il Off Broadway that forming a true relationship with Jesus Christ would completely transform him. Nothing else is working.

    Both Farrah and Ryan did drugs and were drunks, brawling and caught up in a doomed disfunctional relationship they were also addicted to.., with his crazy-abused kids. Her family encouraged her to act in a responsible parent manner, but.. Ryan’s con artist-narcissic needs came first, then it was her looks and work and fame.. Last place..Redmond never had a chance.

    Redmond inherited 4.5 million from Farah. The best thing to happen to him is to be locked up for six years.

    He will spend all that money on drugs, sex and alcohol if he isn’t kept from it.

    Thankfully Ryan can’t get his money.

    Good luck Redmond

    I’m torn between telling him tough luck kid, you had it all and you blew it, to saying this kid never had a chance with the parents he had- money and fame can’t buy you happiness. If this were my kid, I would be terribly sad and try very hard to get him help. After I apologized for being a sucky parent.I hope he gets his act together- it’s not fun to see another human being destroying himself.

    Ryan can appear charming, but he is the kind of jerk that has such a twisted need to be the center of attention that he full-out punched his daughter in the face when she was nominated for an Oscar at, what was it, eight years old? Who socks an eight year old kid? He does drugs with his kids, he had a house that was neglected and had other druggies coming in and out at all hours and he didn’t care what they did to the kids. I genuinely think it’s taken a hell of a fight just for his kids to still be alive. Not that I am justifying their drug addictions or subsequent behaviors. But I have a lot of sympathy for them. They deserved a safe environment to grow up in; all kids do. But so many don’t get it.

    E…I so agree with you.

After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
