Tara Reid, genius, thinks a sharknado could happen in real life

Tara Reid

I haven’t checked in on Tara Reid in a long time, since last August’s Sharknado premiere. Now the cast has visited GQ to offer up some squished boobs and survival tips. I’m glad that Tara was welcomed back for the sequel. The first movie drew 2 million viewers on SyFy, which is both amazing and sad. Will people tune in for the second movie? I think the novelty has worn off, but maybe there will be a nice surprise for Tara & Co.

Tara is still a mess, but she’s been holding it together for her new career in SyFy B-movies. She didn’t “date” 60-year-old jewelry designers at Cannes this year. It’s been years since we heard reports of her partying until her tooth fell out. Tara’s a brand new woman, thanks to this new career wind. She does sort of ruin the good mood by telling GQ that a sharknado could happen in real life:

“You know, it actually can happen. I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually. Which is crazy. Not that it–the chances of it are, like, you know, it’s like probably ‘pigs could fly.’ Like, I don’t think pigs could fly, but actually sharks could be stuck in tornados. There could be a sharknado.”

Bless her heart. I think she really believes this, and Tara’s admission is even more zany than Demi Lovato saying mermaids exist as an alien life form on Earth. No worries, we won’t have a real sharknado on this planet. Accuweather spoke to some scientists who swiftly debunked the whole movie last year. Not that anyone but Tara Reid believed it in the first place.

Here’s the trailer for Sharknado 2. This sequel happens in NYC. Sharks on the subway. Sharks in pizza parlors. Ian Zierling actually “jumps the shark.” He also says, “They’re sharks, they’re scary. No one wants to get eaten. But I’ve been eaten! And I’m here to tell you it takes a lot more than that to take a good man down — a lot more than that to bring a New Yorker down!” Big Apple pride!

    Drugs are bad. Mmmkay?

  2. elisa says:

    As my mother-in-law would say, bless her heart.

  3. Izzy says:

    Sigh. Just when I thought it was safe to turn on the TV. Or read Discover magazine. The stupid is strong with this one…

  4. ds says:

    Ha ha ha ha is this movie for real? Where was I living all this time when I missed that info? What did I just see?

    • Nicolette says:

      Yes, and it seems the first one was quite successful as unbelievable as that may seem. I thought the first one was a joke of some sort when I first heard of it. Never saw it, and never wanted to.

  5. Nilber says:

    Bless her heart… that’s honestly all I have for her at this point.

  6. Frida_K says:

    Ok, I don’t mean to be rude, but….in the last picture…did she deliberately and willingly get herself some bucktoothed veneers?

    Granted, I’m not a fan of Tara Reid and thus have no real familiarity with her oeuvre, but I don’t remember her having such horse teeth in the past.

  7. PunkyMomma says:

    She sounds like a contestant at a beauty pageant. All that’s missing in that GQ interview is her belief that a sharknado will bring about world peace.

  8. Tammy says:

    I’ve always liked her despite her being a train wreck. I can’t really say anything mean so I will just say god bless her.

  9. jessiebes says:

    Hahaha. Sure. But I am so going to download the first one and watch it.

    • Rice says:

      The first one was hilarious especially since Tara and Ian thought they were in some award-winning masterpiece. The second one will be even more craptastic because it’s packed with guest stars. I’ll definitely be watching it! LOL!

      • Sharra55 says:

        Me too. I watched the first one and loved every goofy, B-Movie minute. My 10 year old son and I laughed through the whole thing! I can’t wait for the second! LOL

  10. snowflake says:

    aww, i feel sorry for her.

  11. littlemissnaughty says:

    I think the real question is: Somebody asked scientists if this could happen? WHY?

    Oh, Tara. I’ll always have a soft spot for her because of American Pie. I was 15 at the time it came out, what can I say. And honestly, celebrities say worse crap every day.

  12. launicaangelina says:

    Meh… She’s harmless. I think it’s good that she’s enthusiastic about this project. Everyone is having some cheesy fun with it.

    Also, I prefer Tara like this than hovering at rock bottom. She looks like she is better and she’s having fun.

  13. Rhiley says:

    It is one thing to say that a sharknado could happen, but when she starts stumbling over her thoughts about PIGS FLYING– honey, you need to go sit in on a few kindergarten classes. Seriously.

  14. Jh says:

    That’s the best she’s looked in a decade.

  15. elo says:

    She looks like she’s morphing into Jenna Jameson.

  16. Gabriella says:

    I’ve tried that dress on before! Bcbg from like 5 years ago

    • elo says:

      She is C list, it’s not like she has designers clamoring to dress her. It’s a cute dress and it looks nice on her. Props to her for re wearing and being thrifty.

  17. Bridget says:

    I caught part of American Reunion on TV the other day, and she couldn’t even act asleep convincingly.

  18. Nicolette says:

    Like you know, like it could happen, like I think maybe, like pigs don’t fly do they. Is she trying to sound like a throwback Valley Girl from the early 80′s?

    • kri says:

      LMAO. This is fantastic. One of the greatest minds of our generation has spoken. Honestly that was superior. Oh, mhow I wish she had been on “Graham Norton” when she farted out that brain gas. OMG i am dying

    “Tara’s admission is even more zany than Demi Lovato saying mermaids exist as an alien life form on Earth”

    Sorry, it’s not possible to be more zany than that. That’s up there with Xenu. I think the sharknado thing is actually a notch below that, alongside the “water has feelings” nonsense of Goop.

  20. mandygirl says:

    “Bless her heart.” That made me LOL. We Southern girls know that really means, “Oh, you poor, stupid creature.” Bless her heart, indeed.

  21. Lauraq says:

    1. Ghost Shark was vastly superior to Sharknado. The shark was in the WATER COOLER. And then someone DRANK IT. And then it ATE ITS WAY OUT OF THEM. Amazing.

    She looks like a really pretty 52-year-old grandma except she talks like her mind is blown out by drugs. Hard to believe she’s still in her thirties.

  23. Marianne says:

    Sounds like her brain is fried.
