Tara Reid in Michael Costello at Sharknado 4 premiere: ice skater fug or perfect?

'Sharknado: The 4th Awakens' Premiere - Arrivals
Tara Reid has been looking… altered for some time now. She’s very small (she hasn’t always been this thin) and there’s definitely something off about her. Other than saying that she has new too-large veneers I’m not going to get into it, but you can check out the Instagram pic below and read between the lines. Tara was at the Sharknado 4 premiere in this very sheer Michael Costello gown with a glittery leaf pattern and nude colored undies as coverage. The dress looks like it’s made of pantyhose and sequins. This is bizarre to me because I’ve seen Project Runway finalist Costello’s gowns on several other celebrities, including Meghan Trainor, Laverne Cox and Queen Latifah and they’re usually covered up and looking classy. Not Tara obviously.

'Sharknado: The 4th Awakens' Premiere - Arrivals

Sharknado: The 4th Awakens aired on Syfy last night, during which it was the number one trending topic on Twitter. It will air countless more times if you missed it, and E! has a (spoilers) recap of all the weirdest moments. I saw the original Sharknado when it aired in theaters in 2014 and I was unprepared for the fate of Tara Reid’s character. Tara has some thoughts about her character’s abilities. You can read them here. (spoilers again.)

This show has become a cult hit which no one expected, including Tara’s costar, Ian Ziering. In an interview with US Magazine, Ziering said that he did the first movie because he needed the money and health insurance and that he was hoping no one would watch it. “I was having a baby four months later and I needed to provide for my family. I thought the movie would be horrible and I prayed that it would disappear and no one would watch it!

In related news about Tara Reid, she’s currently on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, where she’s drinking a lot and ranting against her boyfriend, who works as a club promoter.

I hope you like #Sharknado4 💜

    What. Is. That picture with her shoulder blade popping out?! Tara!!! I always worry about this lady.

      MTE
      It broke my eyes

    • Neelyo says:

      It’s like an alien is about to emerge.

    • Kitten says:

      Anybody watch Stranger Things?

      Yeah yikes.

      • Esmom says:

        Kitten, I’ve been trying to convince my son to watch Stranger Things with me. Worth the time?

      • kinta07 says:

        Yes, totally! I really liked Stranger Things :D

      • Kitten says:

        Put it this way, Esmom: it’s the only show that I’ve ever binge-watched in a day.
        It’s a must-see for any child of the eighties for sure, but I can’t imagine anybody not loving it as much as I did.

      • QQ says:

        im OBSESSED with that show and the music .. OB-SESSED

      • Aussie girl says:

        I enjoyed stranger things and I really don’t like scarey stuff. The music/score really nails the80′s.

    • tegteg says:

      @QQ I’m so glad someone mentioned the music! I binge watched the show in one day and mentioned several times to the bf how great the music was – reminds me of the soundtrack to Drive.

    • Bridget says:

      Folks, this is why you exercise. Take care of your body, because it’s not just about being thin.

      • LovelyDayz says:

        Yeah the Spine!!!! I had a plastic surgeon beg me to guess her age. She had a humpy spine yet a glassy face. A beautiful posture is more elegant than a toxy forehead!

  2. Jenns says:

    I’m sorry, but her body has no shape. That dress would work on Jennifer Lopez. Not on Tara Reid.

  3. Zuzus Girl says:

    Poor Tara. She seems like a sweet lady who is dumb as a rock, in addition to addictions. I wish she would get her act together. (She could use a make-up makeover as well.)

  4. Kris says:

    She looks terrible, but even a better dress wouldn’t help her. She has a terrible posture. It’s so obvious that she is uncomfortable in her body. I really feel sorry fo her.

  5. Clare says:

    She has made a career out of nothing – good for her. I mean, she says and does a lot of dumb shit, but I can’t begrudge her hustle – I’ll take it over Tori Spelling, for example, any day, because at least she is putting in the work.

    Also STFU Ian Ziering – you’re perfectly happy to take the pay check and then say, on the record, that you wished no one would watch this? Really? you were on 90201 my friend, not quite Shakespeare in the Park. Relax, stop insulting your co workers by saying this shit.

    • fruitloops says:

      To be fair, he IS talking about SHARKNADO, movie about sharks in a tornado, it’s totally a trash movie, noone thinks there’s anything good in or about it. And it has a following of trash lovers (myself also having a soft spot for that genre), it’s not like he is dissing some high art movie (although I believe that there is some art in SyFy abominations, just on another level :-D ), and fans of the Sharknado movies know that they are terrible, that’s why they love them.

      • Clare says:

        you’re right you’re right – but the whole ‘I wished no one would watch it’ is disrespectful and dumb – I mean I agree it’s a joke of a film, but obviously its made SO people watch it, right? I just hate his smug face!

      • tealily says:

        Eh, I’m sure the Sharknado creators would not be offended by his comments.

    • Aussie girl says:

      Clare I would hardly call Sharknado a career and I doubt she is getting big bucks for it. I don’t admire her hustle and career as a yacht girl, that has party her movie career and looks away. I’m also no tori spelling fan and in terms of had it all given to her, I completely agree tori had. But tori can hustle and has had countless ( bad) books out and ( bad) reality shows.

  6. trollontheloose says:

    her face is a mix of Brandi Glanville and Kylie Minogue. The veneers are awful. Even Cher couldn’t rock whatever this dress is supposed to be. maybe it was off the rack. cheaper.. something no one wanted and was loaned to her. problem being it does nothing to her but make her look more fragile and puerile.

    • Crowdhood says:

      Came here to say she looks like a budget Kylie !

    • Kitten says:

      I remain continually shocked at how much veneers can change a person’s face, and not always in a good way. Between the teeth and her new lips, she’s barely recognizable…

      • darbie10 says:

        Yes Kitten! I work in dentistry and cannot believe how many stars get terrible veneers! If she would have paid to get all of the visible teeth in her smile line covered with veneers, they wouldn’t be *so* terrible. On the scale of expensive things, veneers are much less than a luxury car, idk why stars won’t shell out.

    • QQ says:

      Oh Sh!T THAT is what she is giving me, Thanks for allowing me to not exercise my brain power, friend!!, She looks awful fr fr

      I feel ONLY a smidge bad about her current looks cause this woman was NOTORIOUS on how NASTY/Entitled/rude she was when she held a little bit of clout

    • Sumodo1 says:

      I wish the “bake” under the eyes with HD powder trend would GTFO.

  7. Loopy says:

    She looks so unreal, from the coke eyes ,to the bloated stomach and the jutting shoulder blade.

    • JenniferJustice says:

      She has the same build as Lilo – okay from the front, but they turn to the side, and….WTF?!!!

  8. Fifi says:

    WTH with her back?

  9. mila says:

    make naked dresses go away.

    also, she looks ill.

  10. Jag says:

    That dress is awful!

    It looks like she got cheek implants or something. I hope that she stops whatever she’s doing because she used to be a much prettier lady.

  11. Snowpea says:

    This poor poor woman. I remember seeing a picture of her in her Pie days and she was a gorgeous natural wholesome beauty. She’s obviously had horrific nutrition because she looks like her bones are compressing…or something.

    What the hell happened to her back? She looks like hell.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      How can she be that stick-like *and* have a bloated belly? Is it primarily the result of alcoholism (many pics documenting trashed behavior) or malnutrition? They can go hand in hand, I know… I hope she gets clean.

      • chaine says:

        I wondered about that… she has basically the same body as Lindsay Lohan–the elderly woman stick arms and legs and the bloated tummy. I have seen posts on other sites saying this is a classic alcoholic’s body. For sure, something is not good with her health.

      • Tania says:

        Google an image of ascites. That’s Tara Reid. Very sad. Also, whoever did her make up should be shot. HIDEOUS.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Okay. I googled “ascites” and oh man! Glad to be informed but now stuck with hideous images in my brain. Information says acute liver failure usually follows. Yeah, that would be alcoholism.

  12. Neelyo says:

    She’s like the Skipper to Jenna Jamison’s Barbie

  13. Cara says:

    Wow- if there ever was a cautionary tale for avoiding plastic surgery, Tara Reid is IT. She was a lovely young woman who butchered her body with unnecessary surgery.

    Tara clearly accelerated the aging process through drugs/alcohol and or poor nutrition. But to put her in that dress seems cruel. Heck, maybe she wanted to wear it…but my Lord, she looks so bad. Sad to me.

    • Kitten says:

      Agree with you about the plastic surgery but I don’t think she necessarily looks older than 40, she just looks…..not good.

  14. Ms. Lib says:

    Dancing With The Stars!

  15. NOLA says:

    I cannot believe this is the same woman from American Pie. What’s wrong with her back?! No one’s body / back should be making that shape. It looks as though she dislocated her shoulder and it’s popping out of her back.

  16. Ms. Lib says:

    I think she wore this Dancing With The Stars.

  17. Esmom says:

    She has trainwreck written all over her, sad.

    Ian, though, looks great. I guess I have a soft spot for him, who knew? I detect a twinkle in his eye and it’s cute.

  18. Susie M. says:

    I think she had a bad tummy tuck back in the day (she didn’t even need one) and that’s why her stomach always look weird.

  19. Blackbetty says:

    This dress is hideous!

  20. MiniMii says:

    She looks better than she has for awhile, but holy contouring batman! She needs to scrape off at least half of that contour/bronzer/highlight makeup!

    I have no words for the dress, other than no.

  21. KBeth says:

    Tara always looks trashy no matter what she’s wearing.

  22. Ashley says:

    I am honestly surprised at how human and good she looks, considering all the work she’s had done. How she feels is a whole other matter

  23. Pmnichols says:

    She is chewed up and spit out. Busted.

  24. Tara says:

    Well, it *does* look like she went through a sharknado…

  25. poppy says:

    too many sharknados = dorsal fin?
    freaky.

  26. serena says:

    She kind of looks like Kylie Minogue? What’s up with all that hightlighter too?

    On another note, I love Ian Ziering and so I’m happy the movie is having some box office success.

  27. Eleonor says:

    The original Lindsay Lohan…so sad.

  28. JenniferJustice says:

    I know those are veneers because they’re too big, but why are they yellow? I’ve never seen that before. Usually people go too white with them because they want white teeth, but Tara’s are yellow and they’re new. I don’t understand.
