Tara Reid

In 'Sharknado' S**tstorm

Tara Reid
is coming back -- kinda sorta -- for the "Sharknado" sequel, according to producers, but it's not what they privately said less than a week ago ... TMZ has learned.

The honchos who made the shark flick had a big reaction to TMZ's story over the weekend, that Tara Reid won't be invited back for round 2.  A rep for Asylum -- the production company -- tweeted, "@Tara Reid is awesome ... We'd be lucky to have her back for the sequel."

But we know there was a meeting last Wednesday in which Asylum exec David Latt talked about the sequel and zeroed in on the return of Ian Ziering -- and that's it.  There's no script ... it's all conceptual, but the talk was all about Ian -- and NOT Tara.  We're told the clear message was that she was out.

Latt now says if Tara doesn't do the flick it's because she's turned THEM down since the film has opened so many doors for her. 

Don't get us wrong ... we really like Tara, and think she'd be fun in part 2.  

Fin.

Making fun of Tara Reid is just like making fun of Amanda Baynes or Britney Spear: helpless, pitiful, borderline-retarded, way-past-their-prime, desperate, pathetic and fugly. And heavily intoxicated.

The Producers are Hoping to get a worse actress than Tara. They are hoping for Lindsay.

The fact that this crap shark movie is looked at as an entertaining movie these days, shows how far the movie industry has fallen in the last 10-15 years. One movie producer actually admitted several years ago that "Hollywood has run out of ideas". Today , we have johnny depp running around in white face make up and some idiotic hat acting all "crazy" in one of tim burton's dreadful remakes, or the latest sequel to some superhero movie full of CGI effects or jack black stinking up another "comedy". Give me Raging Bull and The Shining over any piece of crap Hollyweird has **** out the last 15 years. Tara Reid? Good Heavens....

The only doors opened to her are either the bedroom to sleep with someone, or the liquor store.

I always feel sorry for anyone with real bad plastic surgery. Like they spent all that money & went through all that pain for what?
To look worse than before.
Like Dolly Parton with a face that looks awful weird, Priscilla Presley with automobile lubricant in her face, even that idiot Heidi having 10 bad ugly surgeries in 1 day, and the list goes on!

... the film has opened so many doors for her:
The doors to Vivid & Co. and to Hell, of course...
