(Newser) – Redmond O’Neal, the troubled son of Farrah Fawcett and Ryan O’Neal, is going from jail to reality TV, sources tell In Touch. His show, which has yet to be picked up by a network, will follow Redmond’s struggle to get clean, “followed by a trainer and a bodyguard who will try to help him get a job and have a real life,” the source says.

“Redmond wants to do this to honor his mother,” the source continues. O’Neal won’t get his inheritance if he’s not sober, but “he really wants to get better to honor her memory.”
