Tara Reid thinks the writers’ strike is still going on; that’s why she’s not acting

Tara Reid has got to be one of my favorite idiots ever. She’s always seemed plastic and empty, but it turns out that Tara’s idiocy is more than skin deep. Tara Reid is so stupid that she actually thinks the writers’ strike is still going on. The very same strike that ended in mid-February. Nine months ago. The weirdest part is that Tara seems to have relatively current information about the economy. And then ties together her massively out-of-date information with current events into some bizarre theory about how she’ll start working once the strike is over and the economy is better. Probably best to wait until all those head wounds heal too.

Someone needs to tell Tara Reid that the writers’ strike has been over for quite a while now, because it seems the “American Pie” actress didn’t get the memo.

“I totally plan to go back into acting once the strike stops,” Reid told Pop Tarts last week at Eva Longoria-Parker’s Padres Contra El Cancer’s 8th Annual “El Sueno De Esperanza” benefit gala in Hollywood. “The economy is so bad right now that people are afraid to put money back into acting. Even the shows that seem new, they really shot six months ago. So when it’s all back up again, I will go back into it. That’s my heart,” she said.

So instead of performing, Tara has been busy in her new career as a fashion designer … inspired by “The Secret.”

“I have a clothing line coming out called Mantra by Tara Reid. It’s like the book ‘The Secret’ — the whole line is about colors,” she explained. “Red means love, blue means love, white is peace, black means protection. So when you wear these colors, you might attract love, or green, you’ll get lucky tonight. You put the energy out there, that’s what the line is all about.”

Tara’s statement that “‘The economy is so bad right now that people are afraid to put money back into acting,’” is about the economy and is true and accurate information. Her next sentence “‘Even the shows that seem new, they really shot six months ago’” is about the writers’ strike, and hasn’t been correct for a long, long time. And the thing about going back into acting when “it’s all back up again” would be nice, if it weren’t for the fact that it’s “all been back up again” for months.

I’m assuming someone told Tara the strike is still going on and that’s why she’s not working. It’s like a parent telling their kid they took their dog to live on a farm instead of saying, “Sweetheart, Daddy ran over the dog.” You say things like that to children – and people with the mental capacity of children – to soften the blow. As long as Tara still thinks the strike is going on, she won’t wonder why no one will put her in her films.

I wonder what color will attract money or work according to Tara’s clothing line? The clothes she has been wearing definitely look like working girl clothes, but not for their colors. Whatever it is, I suggest that Tara start wearing it night and day.

    That’s odd, considering she’s been in at least 4 low budget sci-fi / horror movies made this year. Methinks your story is FUBAR or a lame joke, Jaybird.

  2. Kaiser says:

    I clicked on this hoping there would be enough material for a bad joke.

    Now I just feel dirty. How is Tara even able to function in society?

  3. JayBird says:

    vdantev: Pop Tarts said they spoke to her directly, and their website is part of an actual news organization. The entire quote is there and isn’t taken out of context, so there’s no reason to believe Tara didn’t mean what she said.

    According to IMDB she has been in 3 movies which were released this year. Considering how long the process prior to a movie’s theater distribution takes, it’s likely they wrapped filming in 2007.

    Or she is just very, very stupid.

    Are you sure she’s talking about the writer’s strike? SAG and AFTRA were recently fighting about going on strike… but decided not to. Maybe she was thinking of that? I mean, I know Tara Reid is not the brightest crayon in the box, but I find it hard to believe that she’s THAT much of an idiot.

  5. Jinxy says:

    Oh wow, she was never talented and I guess her manager is lying to her and she’s so disinterested in her own union she doesn’t know the truth, or care enough to find out. Embarrassing for her, but hilarious for the rest of us.

    Good luck with that clothing line, coming from one of the worst dressed women in H’wood this should be hysterically funny to see. She should stick to her restaurant, which is well reviewed and call it a day.

  6. aleach says:

    bahaha the thing about her clothing line being inspired by the secret is just toooo much!! i mean, i like to put thought into what im wearing, but…”green you might get lucky tonite!” what a dumb-dumb.

  7. JayBird says:

    adleisia I thought of that too; however Pop Tarts clearly says the writer’s strike. Can’t know what she was thinking (probably nothing), so all we can do is go with the quote.

    As far as I know the impending issues with SAG haven’t caused anyone not to work. And more importantly, they’re not striking, though they are talking about it. Tara Reid says she’ll go back to work when the strike is over, implying it’s begun.

    Her comments on the economy are vague but reasonably accurate, and that’s caused a slowdown in movie production. I think at best she’s mixing up her topics.

    “How is Tara even able to function in society?”

    Not very well. Note her butchered body, moronic reputation, and apparently empty head.

  9. kate says:

    how is tara able to function in society? margaritas.

    Drug flashbacks are a bitch 😀 .

  11. WTF?!?! says:

    There’s never been a real threat of late of the actors’ unions going on strike. When the split in talks happened, AFTRA settled separately, and SAG has said they will continue negotiations or may have to eventually strike, as they threaten every year. And that, too, was months ago. She must mean the writer’s strike.

    Was 32 her age that I read recently or the proof of her vodka?

    This is b.s.!

  14. Candy says:

    Aww sweetie! They have been filming non-stop for months now, just not with you honey! I’ll tell you what, stay out of the sun, go for a chemical peel and lay off the booze. You’ll get a job at Starbucks in no time.

  15. Randy says:

    I think she is talking about the Actors Strike, which is about to happen..

    She was never very pretty, but goddamn! What a dog!
