New couple alert: Ryan O’Neal and Cheryl Tiegs

tv land awards 2 180410
We already know that Ryan O’Neal is a shameless cad who loved all the attention he got while his longtime girlfriend Farrah Fawcett was nearing the end of her battle with cancer. We also heard about how the actor hit on his own adult daughter, Tatum, at Farrah’s funeral – apparently it had been so long since they had seen each other, he didn’t recognize her. So it should be no surprise that Ryan actually found his latest flame, literally, at Farrah’s funeral- and that flame is none other than Cheryl Tiegs, the supermodel from the 70s and 80s.

Nearly a year after the death of his longtime love Farrah Fawcett, Ryan O’Neal is writing a new “Love Story” with former model Cheryl Tiegs. The friendship between Ryan, 69, and Cheryl, 62, has blossomed into romance since they ran into one another at Farrah Fawcett’s funeral last June, The Enquirer has learned.

Around the time of Farrah’s passing, Cheryl had just broken off a 7-year relationship with world explorer and endurance bicyclist Dan Buettner. During the funeral service for the “Charlie’s Angels” star and for months afterward, Cheryl comforted grieving Ryan, who had been with Farrah more than 20 years before she died of cancer. Over the last year, the friendship betweent the “Sports Illustrated” model and the star of “Love Story” grew into a “full-blown love affair,” says a source.

The pair came as a couple to the book-signing party for Raquel Welch’s new memoir, “Beyond the Cleavage,” which was hosted by Alana Stewart at Oscar de la Renta’s boutique in West Hollywood on May 6. A beaming Ryan asked a columnist who was in attendance: “Are you going to mention us as an item?”

“He had his arm around Cheryl’s waist and it was clear that they were very happy together.”

All I can say is…vomit! Ryan O’Neal is lower than pond scum, and I can’t understand why Cheryl Tiegs or any other woman would want anything to do with him. He’s terrible boyfriend material. He can’t keep it in his pants to save his life, even at almost 70 years old, and he’s one of the biggest narcissists in Hollywood – that is really saying something. Not to mention, he’s a horrible father and an attention whore. Maybe when you are a single woman in your 60’s you have to take what you can get. Personally, I’d rather be alone than put up with his bullshit. The whole circumstance of them getting together is a little off-putting. Can you imagine telling people that story with a smile? “We met at my long time girlfriend’s funeral.”

Ryan O’Neal is shown on 4/17/10 and 3/31/10. Cheryl Tiegs is shown on 4/12/10, 12/16/09, and 11/20/09. She looks great! Photo credit:

    Has she had work done?

    She is beautiful, but something is a little…off?

    She has that chipmunk, swollen look..

  2. Melanie says:

    NOOOO! Why Cheryl, WHY!

  3. lucy2 says:

    Oh Cheryl, what are you thinking????

  4. Ursaline says:

    He’s a creep. Always has been.

  5. tiki says:

    this. is. perfect. neither of them is a very nice person. there are some nasty stories about her. they deserve each other.

  6. Tia C says:

    Meh, stranger things have happened. If they’re both single and want to hook up, good for them. They actually make a handsome couple, IMO.

  8. djork says:

    Oh, come on. Cheryl Tiegs is NO walk in the park. They’re perfect for eachother.

  9. Linda says:

    Have some self respect, girl!

  10. denise says:

    I don’t know anything about Cheryl, but anyone that gets with Ryan O’Neil has to be mental.

  11. Miranda Ann says:

    Well, before y’all get all over Ryan for being a scumbag, let me tell you a little about Cheryl Tiegs, ‘kay!!

    Ms. Tiegs has twin boys with the son of a fairly famous old-time movie star. When they divorced, he got FULL AND TOTAL custody of those twins and Ms. Tiegs didn’t even fight him. She accepted a lump sum of money from him. In other words, the woman SOLD HER SONS to her ex-husband. (She has an older son by somebody else.) I don’t think she was even allowed to see them without a nanny being present. She had them when she was in her early 50s or late 40s. I don’t know what she did but it was an ugly breakup.

    So, I don’t think anybody should put her on any kind of pedestal as a “good person” nor should you dump on Ryan for being a bad father. They each have issues. In fact, they probably belong together. They are both past middle-age and I think they should be left alone to do whatever it is old people do together.

  12. hellen says:

    Wow, Cheryl looks like 10 miles of bad road. Not to mention, wired through the roof. If she’s with Ryan, I think this is a drug-based relationship.

  13. a says:

    I want to be as sensitive as possible… yet say that I hope she gets tested regularly.

    Like Evita’s husband, Juan Peron whose 1st wife also died from HPV related cancer.

  14. jc126 says:

    Maybe they deserve each other?

  15. Ally says:

    Before Tom Cruise, Ryan O’Neal was the worst casting decision Stanley Kubrick had made. Fun fact.

  16. denise says:

    I don’t mean to sound so judgemental, but

    Cheryl is butt ugly.

  17. Scarlet Vixen says:

    @ Miranda Ann: Her 3rd husband was the son of Gregory Peck (she has 1 kid with him)–she had the twins (thru surrogate) with her 4th husband. She claims that that husband has custody because he’s Jewish and wanted to raise the boys in the Jewish faith, and out of the public eye. Altho who knows how honest that is…

  18. RobN says:

    The whole story is just ewww. Begging for a mention as a couple to a columnist? Ewww.

  19. happymom says:

    Seriously-she gave her sons completely up so they could be raised fully as Jews? As a Jewish woman, I’m going to call total bs on that. And “out of the public eye”? Who does she think she is?! What a complete crock of shit.

  20. Sincerity says:

    What’s unusual about it? Younger people hook up at weddings and older people hook up at funerals. It’s done all the time. Something good may come of it. Perhaps they’ll met their next relationship partners through each others social contacts. Stranger things have happened.

  21. laurie says:

    Looks like cheek implants to me. Look at how the skin is stretched across them specially on the right side. Eww! Not a good job. Maybe a chin implant? And plumped lips, natch!

  22. Miranda Ann says:

    Scar, I stand corrected. I knew that she does not have custody of the twins an I thought they were Peck’s sons. The older one is his son and I believe he had custody of that child also when he was a minor. Cheryl has had serious druggie problems forever. The woman is no saint.

  23. JoGirl says:

    When will these aging Hollywood starlets realize that cheek implants and duck lips don’t make you look better? They make you look older! Jeez.

  24. Wendy says:

    Run Cheryl run!

  25. Aitch says:

    At least he is different and not with a 25 year-old.

  26. Cindy says:

    These two deserve each other, narcissistic attention seeking famewhores who suck as parents.

  27. Jo says:

    She is full of baloney .. she went on Larry King to say that the eggs of the surogate were hers when she was 53! Lie much… I don’t think it had anything to do with religion.. she is prohibited by law to discuss them.

  28. Vee says:

    What a train wreck these two appear to be. They deserve each other.

  29. Majosha says:

    Yeah, good luck with that Cheryl.

  30. WTF?!? says:

    What the fu¢k is wrong with her face?
    Her teeth are crap, and the right side of her mouth looks like she had a stroke! And her face is pulled so tightly over her various implants it looks painful!
    Ryan’s a scumbag, but he’s still pretty good-looking, surely he can find some naive 20-something to bang.

  31. mia says:

    Cheryl looks scary-zombie scary.
    Why can’t people just age with grace instead of doing whatever Cheryl has done to herself?

  32. Sonja says:

    Boy, he moves fast – the corpse isn’t even cold and he’s hitting on chicks at Farrah’s funeral. What a bastard!

  33. Lady D says:

    I thought that was Goldie Hawn in the picture at first.

  34. crash2GO2 says:

    She doesn’t feel free to age with grace because of the ageism and sexism so prevalent in our society and perfectly embodied in MSAT’s statement right in this post: “Maybe when you are a single woman in your 60’s you have to take what you can get.”

  35. Monica says:

    When you’ve been worshipped and adored for your looks for most of your life, I think it is harder to “age”. Average is good 🙂

  36. Splenderosa says:

    Who the hell cares? She looks hideous.
    I guess any port in a storm.

  37. sdcs says:

    @crash, well, sometimes you have to be the pioneer, and not worry about validation from peers or society.
    ie,i hate it when personal responsibility and choices are ignored in favor of the ‘oh, society doesnt’ let these poor people age naturally, or hollywood is so cruel’.
    F*ck that!!!!
    If you want to do it w/o surgery, you DO. Other women do and are. IT’s called having a backbone and some personal strength and conviction to live your life how you want to. Geesh. I understand that the messages may be mixed, but this is how we build character: We learn to decipher the messages. Gee, I wonder how I made it thru my teen years w/o smoking or doing drugs? Um, I chose not to; just b/c my peers ‘don’t allow me to think it’s okay to not party’, is not a reason to forgo my personal free will.
    And Tiegs and others in hollywood are grown adults! At least, their chronological age says so. I’ve heard Hwood is like high school with money. people never grow up emotionally, it seems. that’s sad to me-living one’s life in the psyche of a teenager.

  38. Erin says:

    Well, for starters, she needs to get rid of that hair! Yes, some people at that age can wear long hair–she isn’t one of them. Then she needs to get her teeth cleaned. Get rid of heavy black eye liner. She has wrinkles, but she is in her sixties. She needs to work on her skin–it looks really sun damaged. I always wanted to be a stylist so am just dreaming here–She is still kind of attractive.

  39. HotTrish says:

    Cheryl Tiegs looks like crap and is a huge phoney. How can anybody that looks that fake and un-natural deny plastic surgery. She should be warning everyone not to have plastic surgery to save them the possiblity of looking like her. She’s a wack job and they do deserve each other, she’s a bitch.

  40. Rona says:

    Why doesn’t everyone just shut the F**k up about Ryan??????? Do you KNOW him???? Wow how ignorant. And we’re in 2012? Ryan O’neal was loved by a lovely woman. Farrah Fawcett. Do you think she would be with him is he was ‘pond scum’??? Wake the hell up and shut the hell up. He’s probably a way better man and human being than MOST of the people on here.

  41. Erin says:

    I agree with the “wanna be stylist” on here. New hairstyle, cut the black eyeliner, whiten the teeth, and no more fillers-lips or cheeks. Cheryl Tiegs is a pretty woman still, but it is hidden by bad hair and makeup. After all those years with the best makeup people in the business, I am surprised she can’t see it.

  42. debs says:
