Quit Whining

Just stop talking, Tara:

Tara Reid is bordering on a breakdown now that her E! show, "Taradise," has been officially canceled and other offers of work have dried up, her friends say. The "American Pie" star who has fired her publicist and moved back to New York had a "complete meltdown" Wednesday during a rambling interview for Chaunce Hayden's Steppin' Out magazine, Hayden says.

Reid's voice cracked, and she sounded on edge as she told Hayden: "How many more years are [the media] going to pick on me? There's other new young bad girls. Move on to someone else! . . . I need one more great movie role so they say, 'Wow, she can act! She's a great actress.' Then I think they'll leave me alone . . . If I'm going to try and do something, it has to happen this year. I'm not stupid."

Reid was recently photographed being helped out of a club as her denim skirt rode up, revealing a sadly out-of-shape derriere. Hollywood insiders say she has gained at least 15 pounds and will have to undertake a fitness regimen before she gets parts.

But Reid blames the media. "People think [I am just a party girl], and it's bull[bleep]," she ranted to Hayden. "I wish they would just tell the truth. I'm not a drunk . . . I don't have a drinking problem. I don't have a drug problem, for sure. "Listen, if I could get good movies, you would never see me going out. But when there's nothing to do, what am I supposed to do, just sit in my house and go crazy? But going out is not all I do. "I'm just fed up. I just want a chance again. I want to show that I am an actress . . . I just wish a director would believe in me.

"The gossip reporters know the truth. They know they could write good things about me. They could write I'm a good person who is cleaning up her act. I am getting older, and I want different things in my life. I want to get married and have kids. "I've had a million publicists, and they've done nothing for me . . . Publicists are supposed to fight for me and believe in me, and they don't do that. They don't! "I thought 'Taradise' was going to help me . . . I wanted to show the whole world the truth I'm fun . . . But do I think it was cut like that? No. It could have been a better show . . . I didn't want to look like a total party-girl drug retard. I think the shots they show aren't fair."

You Said

I can think of PLENTY of things she could do with her time besides going out all the time. How about going to an acting class? or doing some community theater? work on the craft she thinks she's good enough for. Volunteer for a charity. Work out. Take a painting class. Learn to tap dance. Geez. I WISH I had that kind of time.

Someone should call her a Whaaaaambulance.

How 'bout getting a real job? Plenty of has-beens and nearly has-beens have worked in other fields while waiting for a break, or in her case, another break.

I think she's missing the point - they wouldn't have "bad" shots to show if she hadn't given them the material. Brooke Burke didn't come off as a skank in the episodes I saw of her on Wild On.

Her stint on this show was just painful to watch. All she did is eat, drink, and keep eating and drinking. I thought it was supposed to be a show about the actual geographic location and the people that party and live there? This was about Tara, her friends, and the level of consumption they could achieve with food and alcohol. No wonder it was cancelled.

And she clearly put on at least 15-20 pounds ... that might have something to do with her breakdown ... these Hollywood girls view something like that the way we would getting fired and being out of a job.
