Tatum O’Neal: It’s Ginger Ale!

In the wake of Tatum O’Neal’s arrest for drug possession, media outlets quickly pointed fingers at the troubled actress for indulging in what looked like a glass of white wine at a Monday night event at the New York City Ballet.

Due in court later this month, Tatum had told reporters on June 3 that she was planning on attending AA meetings once again to keep her on the straight and narrow.

However, when the New York Daily News chatted with O’Neal’s rep about the mystery drink, the response was, “It’s ginger ale. It’s definitely not wine,” dispelling any rumors that troubled Tatum had fallen off the wagon so soon after her brush with the law.

Then again, watching men and women leap around in leotards could drive anyone to drink, really.
