Battle of the formerly relevant blondes!
Tara Reid and Jenny McCarthy ended up hurling insults at each other today after Reid’s interview on McCarthy’s SiriusXM radio show took a wonderfully awkward turn.
Reid, who is promoting “Sharknado 4” ― yes, there’s a fourth one ― didn’t take kindly to McCarthy, who very innocently asked about her latest gig on “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” with boyfriend Dean May.
“I have to talk to you about ‘Marriage Boot Camp,’ because I f―king love you on that show. But are you glad you did it?” McCarthy asked, prompting Reid to deflect and to try to turn the focus back to “Sharknado.”
When McCarthy pressed on about the show, Reid politely refused.
“Babe, I asked you, please let’s not talk about this show. We’re all here about Sharknado,” she said.
And this is where things start getting good.
McCarthy asked Reid if she had to get in shape for the movie. Reid responded as though that was the stupidest question she’d ever heard.
“It’s not like you really have to get in shape, it’s ‘Sharknado.’ It’s like fake sharks, I mean, they’re rubber. You know what I mean?” she said.
Once they established that Reid didn’t do anything crazy beyond her standard yoga, McCarthy started asking her about her much-publicized history with plastic surgery. This again proved to be a topic that Reid didn’t seem to have much interest in discussing, since she told McCarthy she had already said she had no interest having anymore surgery at least 100 times.
From there things considerably devolved. Behold the following conversation:
McCarthy: Good luck with “Sharknado,” and I hope you stay married.
Reid: I hope you stay married too.
McCarthy: I will, and I hope your knees get a little wobblier than they already are.
Reid: Oh, my knees? Oh, yeah, I hope your tits get even nicer than they already are. Because they are amazing. The same guy did mine, right?
McCarthy: Thank you so much. Fantastic. Same guy.
Reid: I’ll always use your advice. You’re the best. Bye.
McCarthy: Love you, Tara. Good luck with “Sharknado 18.”
