Tara Reid is engaged

Beleaguered actress Tara Reid, 34, last made headlines for a heavily airbrushed spread in Playboy magazine’s January/February 2010 issue. Tara appeared topless but not fully nude inside. In interviews promoting the issue, Tara emphasized that the plastic surgery disasters she’s suffered – including botched liposuction and poorly done implants – have long since been fixed and she’s fine now. It’s as if her body is all she has to trade on for gigs in B movies and her lack of a career has nothing to do with her public partying and rehab attempts.

I should be nicer to Tara, she seems like a good person who has an addiction she’s coping with and is just trying to get back on her feet. It’s not like she’s in denial about her career and continuing to use like Lohan. Things are looking up for Tara lately – People Magazine reports that she’s engaged to her boyfriend, an Internet entrepreneur, who proposed during a romantic dinner:

Tara Reid and boyfriend Michael Axtmann were having dinner at The Little Door restaurant in Los Angeles on Monday night when Axtmann asked for something not on the menu: Reid’s hand in marriage.

“Michael surprised Tara with a beautiful round brilliant cut ring,” the actress’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Tara was so happy, and the other patrons clapped and yelled out, ‘Congratulations.'”

Reid, 34, and Axtmann, an Internet entrepreneur, began dating last year. They are planning a small wedding for family and friends by this summer.

Reid, who posed for Playboy’s January/February issue, recently completed production on the comedy Last Call and the psychological thriller The Fields.

Congratulations to Tara and Michael and best wishes! It’s good news that Tara has some movies in the works, too. They’ll probably go straight to DVD, but she had no films out at all last year and at least she’s getting work.

    Ugg. Again with this? Is this going to be a real engagement or fake…

    I can’t with her.

    Aw. It’s always nice when a girl from Wyckoff manages a successful romantic life.

    When I was in high school, my friend dated this girl and after they broke up she married a guy that looked just like him. Did Tara happen to date Zach Braff and a member of Jersey Shore?

    “she’s engaged to her boyfriend, an Internet entrepreneur”

    I’d love to know what he sells online. I imagine it’s something along the lines of “truck nutz”, classless and infantile.

    And dear god…his t-shirt. Is that a hand-grenade with angel wings and a black panther? WTF is up with that? Does he think he looks cool? Because honestly, in that photo up there, he looks more like her gay friend and less like her fiance. I think it’s the girly shades and the flip-flops. Grown men shouldn’t wear flip-flops.

    I think she’s always going to be kind of a mess and probably won’t ever have much of a career, but sounds like she’s trying to get it together, so good for her.

    My gaydar is up as well.

    Who’s the lucky liquor bottle?

    He’s german, 24(!) years old and the son of a german millionaire. he calls himself an entrepreneur but noone knows for sure what he exactly does. i guess his family is so wealthy that he doesn’t need to do anything at all. so she probably is really in love with his character. 😉

    @GatsbyGal: his t-shirt is ridiculous, but it gets better when you try to describe it. LOL!

  9. GatsbyGal says:

    Also…I love the woman over Tara’s shoulder waving to the camera. Makes me laugh.

  10. Roma says:

    I disagree, I love grown men in flip flops! Just not shiny plastic flip flops.

  11. snapdragon says:

    she needs to cover up that nasty, rippled stomach.

  12. Sumodo says:

    Good for her. Honestly. Why all the hate? It’s not like she’s a bunny-boiler, a bitch, or Lindsay Lohan. She might pull this off and be happy. What’s wrong with that?

  13. guest says:

    he’s so dean sherbert…leann is that u?

  14. gg says:

    Well good for her but she really needs to stop dressing like a cheap tramp. That “skirt” is beyond atrocious.

  15. ogechi says:

    If its real, congrats to u.

  16. Larissa says:

    @GG : yeah, now that she is marrying a millionaire I suppose she should start dressing as an expensive tramp!

  17. Maritza says:

    Dlisted has an article saying this guy is totally gay!
