The “American Pie” star was seen shopping at edgy Brit brand All Saints last week when she was overheard berating employees for refusing to give her a discount because of her “fame,” and then was booted, spies said.
“She was screaming,” said a source. “She had to be escorted out by security. She seemed drunk.”
The trouble began when Reid — star of upcoming TV movie “Sharknado” with Ian Ziering—arrived at the Robertson Boulevard store where, a spy said, “She said she needed an outfit for Coachella.” But, the spy added, she “demanded a discount.” When the store declined, Reid insisted she deserved the break “because of her fame,” a spy said. She then “began to scream at them and was escorted out.”
I had to look up Sharknado. Sharknado appears to be a film about sharks and tornados. Possibly sharks in tornados. The poster is a shark in a tornado with the tagline “ENOUGH SAID.” I think I need more, but okay. Moving on,
A rep for Reid told us that she was with her C-list client during the incident, and that we’re just not on “Team Tara.”
“Tara gets a huge discount with All Saints in the UK and Paris because she’s a walking billboard for them,” the rep snapped. “She gets photographed . . . so they give her huge hookups. We told them we get a discount, and they said they’d email the press team.”
The rep added Reid was in a dressing room when a salesperson then came in to tell her she’d been denied. “Tara didn’t think it made sense and asked them to check again,” the rep said.
The store offered to hold Reid’s items for her, according to the rep, and Tara left empty-handed, on her own steam.
As far as Reid’s state in the store: “She was definitely not drunk. People love to say Tara’s hammered and this and that . . . whoever is saying that is not on Team Tara,” the rep said.
“Team Tara”? And you’re a publicist? And someone pays you to say these things and release these statements and the best thing you can come up with is some Regina George bullshit about not being on “Team Tara”? Is this so f-cking fantastic, from now on, I will only refer to Tara Reid as Team Tara, (but it’s not like I’m going to get that opportunity a lot, let’s be real here.)
Hey, Team Tara?
