S3E3: Love Is A Battlefield | Tatum O’Neal and John McEnroe & Brooke Shields and Andre Agassi

Are you ready for some TENNIS! In honor of the Wimbledon finals, we’re bringing you two stories of the life and times of tennis legends of our age. First, Stacie has the incredibly trashy story of Tatum O’Neal, the youngest actor to ever win an Academy Award and a bona fide neglected and abused child, and her early marriage to career-focused and self-absorbed John McEnroe. Then, Alicia gives you a five game match on the strange love that bloomed between superstar Brooke Shields and superpower Andre Agassi.


This is the incredible Vanity Fair piece that Stacie cites throughout her story: Beautiful People, Ugly Choices by Leslie Bennetts.

Alicia mentioned the book Adult Children of Alcoholics as a good resource.
