Pintal told that Redmond was very honest in admitting that this this the first time he genuinely wants to stay sober, as opposed to going through the motions. He said that Tynan was "touched" by Redmond's earnest desire to stay clean.

On November 19, the judge told Redmond he’d better step it up or there would be “consequences.”

"I have been doing treatment awhile your honor,” Redmond told the judge. “I want to do something different. I want to stay clean.”

The long-troubled son of Ryan O’Neal and the late Farrah Fawcett is currently in residential treatment at Impact in Pasadena, California.

Fawcett died in June, and left the bulk of her $4.5 million estate to Redmond.

Redmond told exclusively,  "I feel very good, and I'm staying very positive."

His next hearing is set for January 6.
