“People are obsessed with actresses being hairless, fatless Barbie dolls. They can’t imagine that people would want to be anything other than that. When they are, it’s looked at as almost a political statement. Look at Lena Dunham. She is a gorgeous woman and people can’t stop talking about how brave she is to show herself naked, which I find totally condescending and ridiculous. If Angelina Jolie was naked onscreen no one would say she was brave. The implication is that Lena’s brave because she doesn’t look the way she’s supposed to look. I think that’s a shame.”

Tara Reid, dear Tara. Oh, Tara. You were doing so well! You got yourself Sharknado, a cult classic in the making, fought against rumors that you were cut from the sequel (and won the fight, she wasn’t cut), and looked healthy and happy at the premiere. You were even the voice of REASON a few months ago when you spoke eloquently about Lindsay Lohan and her foolish antics. And then you went and said this, on the Discovery Channel’s Shark After Dark program, live.
I was like, all right, I don’t wanna, like, really sound stupid when I do this show today. So I learned a little education on sharks. I look up sharks on the internet and it’s like, “whale sharks”, and I’m like, oh that must mean a whale and a shark have sex. And I think, well, how does a whale and a shark have sex? And then I realized that whales are mammals, and sharks are animals, they have nothing to do with each other. So basically, the dolphins have sex with each other, but the sharks don’t. So I thought, then how is it such a thing?
She kept rambling, the audience laughed in a, “oh honey” sort of way, and the host made this face:
And Ian Ziering made this face:
It’s not the stupidest thing anyone’s ever said. She was having a classic Jessica Simpson moment. It’s just so unfortunate because she expressed at the top that she really, really didn’t want to sound stupid on the show.
Better luck next time, Team Tara! We appreciate your efforts.
While tweeting away in rehab, Lindsay Lohan resolved not to move to New York City when she got out. That didn’t last long. I guess it’s better than living with her mom in Long Island, but is it really a good idea for her to be living alone in NYC? Daily Mail claims that the space will “most likely have room for the actress’ live-in coach to help Lindsay stay on the comeback trail.” Let’s hope so. They posted these photos of her and younger sister Ali loading lots of luggage into an apartment building. And Lindsay’s been hanging out in New York since she left rehab. So, I guess you could put 2 and 2 together and get a solid 4. The 4 being, she’s moving into this apartment in NYC.
Ali’s not looking pleased.
Welcome back, Linds. Try not to spend all your Oprah money in one place.
She clearly didn’t spend it here.
