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!
