Tara Reid to appear on Australia’s version of Dancing with The Stars

Congratulations are in order for Tara Reid, who got herself a job. The job is in Australia, where I come from, which has so few celebrities even Tara Reid is considered.

Producers have broadened their search for star talent after receiving knock backs from several high-status celebrities, the Daily Telegraph reports.

The production company for Dancing with the Stars, Freehand, is reportedly keen to snare a celebrity star to increase interest in the show since taking over producing rights from Granada.

C-list actor Reid — who pocketed $3500 when she turned up to parties after hosting a “Hooker’s Ball” in Darwin last year — has reportedly been asked by Freehand to star on the eighth series of the show.

Potty-mouthed chef Gordon Ramsay and US fashionista Carson Kressley have both rejected similar such offers.

Kressley’s Sydney agent Max Markson confirmed he had been approached twice by the show’s producers.


Unfortunately, Dancing with the Stars is a few years old now. It’s in its eighth season, and I suspect that Tara Reid isn’t going to be a big enough draw to bring the ratings up. I also love the fact that she’s not even the networks first choice, coming behind Gordon Ramsay and Carson Kressley. The network is obviously confused – Gordon and Carson have jobs, you need to find a celebrity who is currently unemployed. If Tara turns you down, give Lindsay Lohan a try.

Last year Tara had a great holiday in Australia while appearing at the Hooker’s Ball, where there was speculation she had been paid as little as $3,500 to attend, dressed as a prostitute. The event also infamously had the word ‘American’ spelt incorrectly on the posters advertising Tara’s appearance.

Tara Reid is shown at the Race to Erase MS Gala on 5/2/08 and outside Foxtail Restaurant on 4/10/08, thanks to WENN.

  2. Bodhi says:

    She’ll be the first one voted off

  3. Kevin says:

    I agree, put her and Lohan both on there. Dancing with the sluts! CRIKEY!!!! Also..if you can’t spell “spelled”, you probably cant spell America.

  4. Jody says:

    The only thing I can say, is that she was great in Josie & The Pussycats, granted I don’t think the role required any acting on her part.

    Maybe I smoke too much, I don’t know…

  5. Ribbit Ribbit says:

    In her case, the actual spelling is “A merkin”.

    Go look it up.

  6. vdantev says:

    Tara does her best when she’s modeling, that’s about all. Poor thing.

  7. Ron says:

    She a Star? Where? Christ, why don’t they ask the girl at Hot Dog on a Stick if she wants to be on the show?

  8. Bodhi says:

    😆 Jody- i have the same problem 😉

  9. Jody says:

    Haha Bodhi, I’ve seen your bong remarks, hilarious! Maybe if everyone had our “problem”, there would be no war.

    Holy Crap Ron, you crack my ass up…girl at Hot Dog On A Stick…that’s awesome. I actually know her, if you have the right info to pass along.

    I’m thankful my tv doesn’t pick up any Australian station’s…if I ran up on Tara Reid while channel surfing my tv would probably self combust or something out of disgust.

  11. caitie says:

    TV is pretty rubbish down here. But asking Tara Reid brings us Aussies to a new low. And this is a show which they ask ex Big Brother housemates on. I actually do think girl at Hot Dog on a Stick was on there a coupla seasons back, if i recall…

  12. Cherry says:

    she looks anorexic, you can see the bones sticking out on her shoulder 😆

  13. Cherry says:

    and check out that collarbone, yuck, she’s not being a good role model for the young girls out there… we need to promote more healtheier looking woman, not anorexics.
