Tatum O’Neal‘s ex-husband and tennis superstar John McEnroe stops by “The Wendy Williams Show” on Wednesday (Jan. 26), and tells us how he really feels about his former love’s reality show, which will air on the “Oprah Winfrey Network.” 

“I’m concerned for her, but mainly I’m concerned for my kids to be perfectly honest,” McEnroe says. “I think this is an accident waiting to happen.”

Williams confesses, “Let me say this. You know it’s one of the shows I’m going to be watching.” To which McEnroe retorts, “Don’t watch it, don’t encourage it.”

He brings up a valid point. Though we can’t hide our love for train-wreck reality TV, we partially hate ourselves for validating the behavior. But let’s be real, we don’t hate ourselves enough to stop watching.

Don’t count on the former couple’s children to partake in their mother’s latest venture, though. While McEnroe is not required to give permission for their involvement, he doesn’t think that they will participate regardless.

“Hopefully none of them will be on it. Two of them won’t, and I think none of them will be on it,” he states. “They got the McEnroe smarts!”  

Tatum is currently filming “Lost and Found” with her estranged father, Ryan O’Neal. The two will attempt to rebuild a relationship following a sordid past.

Aside from being accidentally hit on at Farrah Fawcett‘s funeral, Tatum has accused her father of physical and emotional abuse, drug use, exposing her to a molester and sleeping with teenage friend, Melanie Griffith. Ryan denies some of these allegations.

Apparently the father-daughter bonding has not gotten off to a good start, with a heated restaurant fight already being reported. Color us surprised.

Father and daughter previously appeared together in “Paper Moon,” the film that made Tatum the youngest Academy Award winner ever at just 10-years-old. Somehow we don’t think their current project will garner the same respect.
