Tara Reid thinks "Sharknado" can actually happen

Ready for some must-cringe radio?

Tara Reid shut down an interview with Jenny McCarthy on McCarthy’s SiriusXM show on Friday, after a heated exchange between the guest and host.

Reid appeared on McCarthy’s show to discuss the upcoming “Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens,” but things began to take a turn when McCarthy asked Reid about her run on WE tv’s reality series “Marriage Boot Camp.”

“I f—ing love you on that show, but are you glad you did it?” McCarthy asked.

“I think the whole thing is actually so stupid and so silly, and we’re not even talking about it,” Reid responded bluntly. “It’s not worth the time to talk about.”

Reid attempted to turn the conversation back to “Sharknado,” which worked, for about a minute, until McCarthy pivoted to her infamous history with plastic surgery.

“Are you still going through surgeries, or are you past them?” McCarthy quizzed.

“No, I haven’t had any surgery for a while,” Reid replied.

McCarthy pressed on with the plastic-surgery topic, again asking Reid if she was good not continuing with plastic surgery.

“I think I’ve made that clear about 100 times,” Reid replied.

At which point she decided to promptly wrap up the interview — but not before a little more heated back-and-forth between her and McCarthy.

“I hope your knees get a little wobblier than they already are,” McCarthy hissed.

“Oh yeah, I hope your tits get even nicer, they’re amazing. Same guy as did mine, right?” Reid shot back. “I’ll always use your advice.”

“Love you, Tara,” McCarthy fired back, before the delivering her knockout punch. “Good luck with ‘Sharknado 18.’”


Reid’s spokesperson told TheWrap that the interview started out positively, but that Reid felt “bullied” and “ambushed” when McCarthy shifted the conversation and “made it ugly,” causing Reid to wrap the interview.

McCarthy’s behavior was “uncalled for,” the spokesperson added.

A spokesperson for McCarthy has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
