Tara Reid comes clean about her botched plastic surgery

Tara Reid has admitted that she hired a cheap hack who made her look like a Frankenbarbie, ruining her movie career, sending her into a drunken depression, and forcing her to steal swag in order to survive. She said she sold her story to US Weekly in order to pay to get some stuff fixed, and hopes that her next direct-to-DVD horror film helps her afford the mortgage on her condo:

On why she had plastic surgery in the first place:
“I got my breasts done for the first time because my breasts were uneven. I was a 34-B, but the right one was always bigger than the left. I weigh 110 pounds now, but I always used to fluctuate by 10 pounds, so my skin was kind of saggy. I figured, I’m in Hollywood, I’m getting older, I’m going to fix them.”

On what went wrong:
“First of all, I asked for big Bs, and he did not give me big Bs. He gave me Cs, and I didn’t want them. At all. Right after the surgery, I had some bumps along the edges of my nipples, but the doctor said, ‘Don’t worry, it’s going to be better.’ But after six months of ‘it’s going to get better,’ it started to get worse and worse.”

On being intimate:
Guys I was dating would be like, ‘What’s wrong with them? They look really bad. You know, you should really get them fixed.’ So embarrassing. I mean, you definitely need to turn off the lights, that’s for sure.”

On getting lipo:
“I got lipo because even though I was skinny, I wanted – I’m not going to lie – a six-pack. I had body contouring, but it all went wrong. My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing.”

That’s great of poor Tara to come clean and all, and maybe she can make friends with pregnant Tori Spelling now that they’re both selling their sad tales to US to run as cover stories during slow news weeks.

We haven’t seen any pictures of Tara lately apart from the pitiful scene where she got shut out of Hyde and waited patiently, making self-depricating comments. Either she’s so “last week” that she doesn’t warrant the space on the paparrazi’s digital memory cards, or she’s staying out of trouble by not hitting the celebrity hot spots while she’s recovering from surgery.

She looks really cleaned up the cover of US Weekly, and maybe she’ll settle into a comfortable sober lifestyle of relative obscurity, but I doubt it.

    Its good that she is coming clean. then people wont make as much fun. It’s better when you say “this isn’t how it was supposed to look”

  2. marines all the way says:

    That couldn’t have been easy

  3. ER says:

    I’m not buying it that she weighs 110. There’s a recent photo of Kate Hudson in a tabloid mag and they claim she weighs 115 and she looks significantly better/thinner than Tara.

  4. Viv says:

    That’s bs she’s 110 lbs. I weigh 108 and her ass is the size of my torso. I don’t know if her coming clean really will stop asses like me; if anything, I have more to ridicule her for. Why she has such a poor body image is beyond me, but she could have hired a trainer, gone on that new Gwyneth diet, and maybe tried to keep her clothes on and drink less.

  5. Jude says:

    I feel bad for her on some level, but really, she’d look fine if she just covered herself up for once, as Viv says. No one but her boyfriend needs to see her goods over and over again anyway.

  6. Chic Mommy says:

    I wonder if she plans to sue the plastic surgeon who destroyed her body. I bet she could sue for loss of compensation due to ugly body.

  7. Poor Boopie says:

    OMG – any lower and those things would be dragging the floor! Definetly could tuck them under the armpits though

  8. Alexi says:

    Lordy she looks like she’s breast fed the brady bunch, and the whole cast of the flavor o love

    i thought she was cute prior to all the NIPNTUCK

  9. Viv says:

    HAHAHA, “she looks like she’s breast fed the brady bunch”. That’s great.

    You know what Chic Mommy, suing is something that she should definitely consider especially given the state of how heinous looking she is now. I was chuckling when I imagined if her lawyer was asking what she is suing for: “My fugliness, sir.” You’re too funny. Does this mean she’s going to sue her publicist for letting pictures of her drunk be published? I might just buy the US to see what she has to say. MIGHT.

    I always liked Tara. She was a good fit in the quirky, cute airhead roles. So I hope she can get thing hmmhmm, straightened up, poor thing.

    she was so cute before she got those awful, oversized breast. She already had a sixpack. Woman always forget proportion when they get a boob job. Jennifer’s looks great.

    “i’ll never be perfect again” she says, oh how modest is that 🙂 they should find character sugeons for these people it would really help lol
