Tara Reid

Tara Reid is an actress best known for her role in American Pie and her wild partying and plastic surgery nightmare.

Reid was born on November 8, 1975 in Wyckoff, New Jersey and began her acting career at a young age. Reid’s first broke into the entertainment business in 1982 when she became a regular on a children's game show called "Child's Play". Reid subsequently appeared in over 100 commercials for companies such as Jell-O, McDonald's, and Crayola.

Reid took a break from acting throughout much of the mid-late 1980s and early 1990s as she attended grade school and high school. In 1987 she had a small role in the horror movie, Return to Salem’s Lot. She waited until 1994 to appear in her next role as an extra in one episode of Saved By The Bell: the New Class.

Reid began acquiring other minor roles throughout the mid-1990s, including small roles on TV shows such as Days of Our Lives and California Dreams. Reid was a very attractive young woman at the time and movie producers began taking notice, casting her in small roles in the 1998 major motion pictures The Big Lebowski and Urban Legend. Reid followed up with her star-making role as "Vicky Lathum" in the 1999 smash hit comedy, American Pie. She also appeared in the hit movie Cruel Intentions in 1999.

Fans of American Pie were enamored with Reid. She was a beautiful young woman and was generally regarded as one of the most attractive actresses in Hollywood. Despite her good looks, however, most people thought that she was a horrible actress. After American Pie, Reid followed up with big roles in several box office flops, such as Body Shots (1999), Just Visiting (2001), and Josie and the Pussycats (2001). Josie and the Pussycats was a huge flop, costing $39 million to produce but garnering only $14 million worldwide at the box office. Reid’s career was rejuvenated in 2002, however, by a small appearance in American Pie 2 and by a major role in Van Wilder.

Reid’s acting career has been on a downward trajectory in 2002, however, likely due to her well-publicized penchant for excessive drinking and partying. She has had numerous acting roles since 2002, but none are very notable. She had a recurring role during the 2004-05 season of Scrubs, but her character was written off after the season due to conflicts reportedly caused by her off-camera lifestyle. Reid had a well-publicized relationship and engagement with Carson Daly that ended in 2001, likely as a result of her partying.

Reid was offered a job hosting Taradise, a spin-off of the travel show Wild On, in 2005. However, Taradise was canceled after only eight episodes, reportedly due to the excessive costs of Reid’s partying associated with her role.

Over the past few years, the roles offered to Reid have been few and far between. Her best roles have been in poorly reviewed straight-to-DVD flicks such as Silent Partner (2005) and Clean Break (2008).

Reid is undoubtedly aware of her lack of acting ability and knew that the best way to remain successful in Hollywood was by maintain her good looks for as long as possible. This realization apparently made Reid feel extremely insecure, leading her to undergo many plastic surgeries that were completely unnecessary and disfigured her.

In 2004, Reid had a boob job. Reid has claimed that "asked for big Bs" but that her plastic surgeon instead gave her C’s, which she did not want. Reid also had a procedure called “body contouring” which was performed by the same plastic surgeon. This surgery disfigured Reid’s stomach, giving it a rippled look, as shown below. Reid claims that she was unable to wear a bikini on camera and lost acting roles as a result.




Reid apparently began hanging out with/dating other people whose stomachs looked even weirder than hers in an effort to take the attention off her. (This is a tactic similar to the one used by fat women who hang out with even fatter women so that they look thin/normal in comparison.) Reid had to undergo subsequent surgeries to fix her botched plastic surgery.

In 2004 Reid suffered ridicule when she was on the red carpet at a party to celebrate P. Diddy’s 35th birthday. Reid was waving to cameras when her left dress strap rolled off her shoulder, revealing her left breast. Various photographs of Reid’s surgically enhanced breast were snapped and published throughout the Internet.

Reid had a growing reputation as a party girl at the time and was known to hang out with other famous party girls such as Lindsey Lohan and Paris Hilton. Reid cemented this "party girl" reputation when she appeared on Taradise. Reid has claimed that her appearance on Taradise irreparably ruined her career. Reid stayed true to her reputation in 2007 Reid when she was lost a lot of weight and was reportedly hospitalized for alcohol abuse. Reid also checked into rehab in November 2008 to deal with alcoholism and anorexia. After a 60-day stay, she was released and reportedly sold her story to In Touch Weekly for $150,000.

Reid’s partying lifestyle and botched surgeries have taken a toll on her public image. At the height of her fame earlier this decade, Reid reportedly commanded $60,000 per appearance (according to People Magazine), but by late 2008 was struggling to bring in $1,500 (according to Us Weekly). As a result of her excessive partying and botched surgeries, Reid’s acting career is practically on life support. Accordingly, Tara Reid is undoubtedly one washed-up celebrity!

Geez what a nasty skank! She was hot as hell back in the AP days, but she's been cut on so many times and now she's anorexic. I guess that would make her the Biggest Loser, haw haw haw!

Still, I'd squirt my mayo up her shit chute because I dig fucking skeletons with scars. Call me quirky.

Wasn't she already posted? Oh no, that was Natasha Lyonne.

I remember hearing this story about how she was so drunk she ate part of a tuna sandwich, puked it up, then proceeded to eat the rest like nothing happened.

GerardButlersAss said...

Excellent entry! She had a major role in the horrendous film "Alone in the Dark." She played some sort of scientist, so she wore glasses to make her look intelligent. Too funny. Anyway, how stupid does one have to be to stand in front of the paparazzi for almost 1 full minute before realizing that one of your boobs is hanging out? What an idiot. Tara Reid is indeed one-washed up celebrity!

"shit chute"

Band name alert!

Tara Reid was made for this blog; she was another person I thought was long overdue for an entry here.

And speaking of Lindsay Lohan, I think it's high time she be added to this list. I hope that time comes soon.

The only person from the AP franchise that isn't washed up, is Alyson Hannigan.

Are you ever planning to do a Kirk Cameron entry? Please answer. I can't believe one has not been done yet! Tracey Gold and Jeremy Miller have profiles. If you do it, you must include this

^^^ Yes, I will probably eventually do a Kirk Cameron entry. However, he was in the successful "Fireproof" movie last year. The guy is super-religious, although I'm not sure that by itself makes him "washed up."

Anonymous said...

I still think you should do a feature on Jan-Michael Vincent.

Jeff said...

Moviefan, I know one superreligious guy who is washed up, doesn't have a recent hit, had his house foreclosed and filed for bankruptcy: Stephen Baldwin.

Speaking of Tara Reid as a scientist in Alone in the Dark, the director Uwe Boll(who's another story in itself) tried to be nice describing her but just couldn't. He said Tara tried her best but it wasn't working and he didn't have the money or budget to replace her.

When Tara's boob was exposed, it was called Frankenboob due to all the cuts and stiches on her.

It's a shame, her body wasn't that bad to begin with. Look at Body Shots for instance, she had a nude scene where she looked nice. That plastic surgeon must have partied with her and did the surgery while he was still drunk. With all those cuts he laid on her body, even the porn industry is going to tell Tara to put her clothes on.

You need to do an entry for Willie Aames.

Yet she will be appearing in Playboy next month!

I see the airbrushing department having to do overtime trying to make that look human, but they've had a good workout the last few years with Cindy Margolis and a few other celebs who we know don't look that good up close...

Hey- I just wanted to say that I really love this blog. Maybe because you say it like it is! I just love reading this blog. :)
I think that you should do a post on Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Also- I don't see why you would want to do something on Kirk Cameron. Being a Christian definitely does not make you a washed up celebrity, and he's been in some very big movies. ie: Fireproof, Left behind 1,2,3,etc. Just because he wasn't in much between Growing Pains and those movies, does not make him washed up. Maybe he wanted to spend time with the family that he and Chelsea Noble have together. My guess. :)
At least he's not taking drugs excessively and drinking.
That's just my two cents.

Kirk Cameron's attitude makes him washed up. Other than Growing Pains, he's a has been and he wasn't recognized for 'Fireproof' though it was successful. Anyone watch the E THS about Growing Pains and his behavior?

And Morgan, MK and Ashley are not washed up, they have several current business ventures and have gone to college.

You should do a write up on Adrian Zmed. That's one washed up mofo.

ButterBalls said...

I think a write-up for Ashlee Simpson is in order. She has failed at singing, she has failed at baby-naming, she has failed at a TV series, and now she is trying theatrical "acting," which she will also fail at. Maybe she should try publishing next, and write a book about how to fail at everything. Ironically, it will also fail. But at least she's consistent, so I guess she's actually good at something -- failing!

So rude. I love Tara Reid and she just filmed 2 movies for 2010 so she'll be back stronger than ever! watch haters

Tara's Playboy cover has just been released. They did a good job of Photoshopping her deformed boobs. I wonder how much she got paid for the shoot? She will probably spend most of the money on vodka.

Mary-Kate and Ashley might've gone to college, but that doesn't mean that they aren't washed up. They have been doing some realy dumb things, adn they haven't been in anything recently.
As for Kirk Cameron, he is NOT washed up at all- I think that being a Christian gives you a good attitude, not a bad one. he's trying to help people to Christ- and there is nothing wrong with that. Christians are supposed to do that. :)

What are the dumb things they've been doing? They have several upcoming projects.

Yeah, shoving your religious beliefs down peoples' throats, getting a woman fired because she posed in Playboy, threatening to quit Growing Pains and demanding the story lines to be changed and getting your way because you're the star of the show, calling up the shows producers and harassing them calling them 'pornographers' is being a good Christian.

And he still exhibits that behavior. Especially in recent videos of Kirk when he goes on the street, asks a stranger if they've ever stolen, they answer yes, he calls them a thief. Asks them if they've ever lied and they've answered yes and he calls them a liar. A true Christian doesn't judge, they look for the GOOD in people and uplift. Kirk sure went out of his way to take food off of Julie Mccullough's table.

Thanks to the Friends reruns I've been watching lately, I've decided it's high time Matt LeBlanc be included on this list. Last I heard he was going to be on a show on Showtime or HBO.

Another recommendation: Jonathan Silverman. You can't get more washed up than that.

If you have ever stolen, you are a thief- if you've ever lied, you are a liar - there is no denying any of that. I am a liar, I am stolen stuff, yet, I am still a Christian. every time I pray to God to ask him to forgive my sins - he takes those things away.
I don't know if I even completely agree with him going at it that way - I think that there are probably better ways to lead people to Christ - but everyone has their own ways.
And just because that's the way he does it- doesn't mean that he's any less a Christian than someone who does it a different way.

Mary Kate and Ashley, to me, seem more washed up, because they have gone through things like anorexia and bulimia, and things like that. But, I'm not here to judge them on the way they do stuff.

I'm not even exactly sure why i read this blog, because it just is also showing the bad in people. And leaving out the good.

I'm kind-of glad that there's not a new entry on this blog in a while. It definitely makes me think that maybe some people are Hollywood really aren't as 'washed up' as you may think.

There's nothing wrong with being in Hollywood when you're young, and leaving it when you're old - maybe because you can't get any more roles, or maybe because you don't want to be anymore.
I think it's best to get out of Hollywood, as fast as you can.
Just my opinion.

Kirk Cameron is an idiot. He does not belive in separation of Church and state he wants all kids in public schools to be praying all day instead of cracking open a math or science book. This idiot does not belive in Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution and put out propaganda against Darwin accusing him of being a racist, a Nazi, etc. I did not know having a bad perm in the 80's and being on a lame TV show made a person an expert in science. This is a funny clip of Howard Stern ripping pretty good on him:

Why is it that people who need plastic surgery the least end up going for it? The transition from "hottie" to "nottie" is shocking.

Dennis Hopper said...

For whatever reason I don't really feel anything negative towards Tara Reid. I feel kind of bad for her. As far as I know she seems like a hot girl who partied too much and fucked up her life. But she does not seem evil or to be a bad person as far as I can tell. If you are a Woman especially a woman in Hollywood it seems you REALLY REALLY need to watch your partying and stick to a healthy lifestyle because in Hollywood unless your Meryl Streep once your physical looks are gone you are toast. Men on the other hand can be old and party and be patted on the back for it.

Kirk Cameron is a piece of shit. Search on YouTube for Howard Stern responding and owning him. Howard says public school is for tax payers so all the children can get a basic education in things like math and science. Which he's right about. If Kirk Cameron got his way about religion in public schools, it would piss off Muslims, Jews, etc.

Got a great idea for a post--Lindsay Lohan. She's been in rehab and jail multiple times now, and still fucks up every time she is released. On top of that, it was announced today that she was fired from "Inferno" (a movie about Linda Lovelace, star of "Deep Throat") because she's too much of a "Liability." So hopefully you'll take that one into consideration.

Jeff said...

As of late, Tara Reid told the press she's in the Big Lebowski Part II. This was news to the Coen Brothers and Jeff Bridges as they heard nothing of this. Tara's rep try to clear up it by saying she saw Bridges on Jimmy Fallon talking about Big Lebowski II(when all Bridges really did is answer Jimmy's question about the possibility of a sequel) and thought a sequel is in the works. More proof that Tara stays washed-up.

Anonymous said...

It seems that she overcome that. A new surgeon has done the rights where there was wrongs.

Arbi Baraev said...

she did a spoof trailer of big lebowski 2.(funny or die) it is not funny in any way shape or form. she made it big by being the girl all the guys jerked off to, but her looks are fading fast and no amount of surgery will bring her back to former glory. she doesn't have much going for her in the future except appearances on reality shows perhaps and some more nip slips incase we want to see in what direction her tits are being positioned to point to. it is time to put this bitch to sleep, and i will gladly give her that cumshot of lead that she so desperately needs.

Is it possible that Tara was pregnant? I am trying to figure out as to why her stomach looks so horrible? She had to have been pregnant at some point in her life? Any rumors about her having a kid and giving it up for adoption back in the late 80s or early 90s?
