Ian Ziering

Throws Tara Reid to the

Sharknados Too

8/2/2013 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

080213_ian_ziering_launch
"Sharknado" star Ian Ziering landed in a seriously tight spot last night -- forced to choose between backing his co-star Tara Reid ... and his own payday for the sequel.

Ian and his wife were walking out of Boa when we posed the question ... "Would you like to have Tara back on Sharknado 2?"

Boom! Rock and a hard place.

As we first reported ... producers have already decided they want Ian, back for the sequel -- but Tara's sitch is not yet a lock.

This was basically Ian's chance to loudly proclaim he'd love to have Tara back ... even though that might rock the boat with producers who haven't reached out to her yet.

So, what do you think he did? Yeah, he totally left her for shark bait.

So he ignores an annoying pap asking the same thing over and over, talking over everyone else...and you decide that is an answer to the question?

Yeah, . . . well, . . . sharks generally devour the rotten tuna first, so, poor Tara didn't stand a chance!!!
CRAZY TIMES.

HOw was that his chance to speak up for her? The guy can speak up for her if he wants, WHENEVER he wants. I think the last thing he wants to do is answer a personal opinion on a business relationship walking on the sidewalk with his wife.

why do you care about tara
she is no one special
she has to get another job now or marry some old old man who has money again and start drinking

if she was such a good employee at work they would have kept tara.

apply for new job time for tara or go hide again for a few years

I only got interested in it because of Tara(and the bad FX). Tara is the big draw and it would be a mistake to not use her for shark bait again. I hope she doesn't just do a walk on cameo like in American Pie 2.

I almost ignored this item but I glad I didn't. This is a new low for TMZ. I have been complaining about the decline in writing lately, which is one thing. But you can't take a celeb ignoring a spray of questions then run with a story pronouncing he threw her under the bus. The declining standards on TMZ are changing the whole direction of the site now. When my friends and I were a young journalism grads we would have killed for a job editing a journal on the fly. What would it cost you to at least bring the level back to where it was just six months ago?
