Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal’s heroin-abusing son, Redmond, 24, is turning his battle against addiction into a television reality show, In Touch Weekly reports.
“Redmond has signed the deal that was brokered for him by his dad,” the In Touch tipster tattles. “Redmond will be followed by a trainer and a bodyguard who will try to help him get a job and have a real life.Ryan will be on the show, too.”
Filming will begin in four months, when Redmond is released from a California detention center, where he has been serving time since May, says a friend. In fact, the troubled redhead was incarcerated when his mom, a ’70s icon, tragically lost her battle against anal cancer on June 25.
“Redmond wants to do this to honor his mother. He really wants to get better to honor her memory.”
Redmond’s reality show has not yet been picked up a network.
