It’s the battle of the surgically enhanced blondes!
Ultimately Tara Reid came out the winner and Jenny McCarthy made herself look like a total ass, but this is probably the most awkward thing we’ve heard all month! Tara appeared on the former Playboy model’s Sirius XM radio show on Friday, but rather than discussing the latest installment of Sharknado, Jenny asked all kinds of off-topic questions — in a pretty catty tone.
Starting off by asking about Tara’s appearance on WE tv’s Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, Jenny said, “I f*cking love you on that show, but are you glad you did it?” Tara replied, “I think the whole thing is absolutely stupid and silly. And, like, we’re not even talking about it because there’s confusing things about it. So right now, we’re just talking about Sharknado. It’s not worth the time to talk about.” But Jenny pressed on. “Are you pissed off at the people’s comments or just the show in general?” Tara said, “Babe, I asked you, please let’s not talk about this show. We’re all here about Sharknado.”
Other jabs from Jenny? “So did you have to get into shape for Sharknado or are you still in the same shape you’ve always been?” she asked. After Tara replied that she didn’t do anything out of the ordinary, Jenny brought up Tara’s plastic surgeries, which the starlet clearly didn’t want to talk about. “People talked about your surgeries before,” Jenny asked. “Are you still going through surgeries or are you past them?”
Tara replied, “No, I haven’t had any surgery for awhile, Jenny.” When Jenny asked about it AGAIN, Tara said, “I think I’ve made that clear about 100 times.” Jenny noted that she hadn’t heard Tara talk about it 100 times, and Tara shot back, “Maybe you only read the bad things, but I’ve made that really clear for so many years.”
At that point Tara decided to cut the interview short by saying, “It was really nice talking to you and really good luck with your show.” Jenny sniped, “Good luck to you, too, and I’m so excited about Sharknado and I hope you stay married.” Tara responded that she hoped Jenny stayed married also, and Jenny shot back, “I hope your knees get a little wobblier than they already are.” RUDE!
“I hope your tits get even nicer, because they’re amazing,” Tara said. “The same guy who did mine, right? I’ll always use your advice. You’re the best. Bye.” Before Tara could leave, Jenny said, “Love you, Tara. Good luck with Sharknado 18.”
You can listen to the whole uncomfortable exchange below, but it’s pretty clear that Tara was being picked on, and Jenny kinda sucks at interviews. A rep for Tara Reid told E! News, “Tara is a positive person who is against women tearing each other down. She was bullied on Jenny’s and felt ambushed when she came into the show with a positive spirit and in a happy mood. It was very unfortunate how Jenny shifted the conversation for her personal gain when the whole focus should be on Sharknado 4.”
