Celebri-spiral™: Enough Already

Our culture is in a celebri-spiral. We're conflicted over our ridiculous, growing celebrity culture consumption via magazines, websites, and TV shows. In 2007, my love/hate conflict made me take to the blog-o-sphere. All writing on this site © Dave Singleton 2009.

January 13, 2007: Tara Reid, Celebrity Tabloid Victim. RIP

Poor Tara Reid can't catch a break from thesuperficial.com which, at least, added some humor to coverage of Tara's hair: "Tara Reid showed up as a special guest to a cocktail party at Conrad Jupiters Magic Millions Carnival in Australia looking like she found a wig from a dumpster and threw it on. My guess is she tried styling her hair by herself after a night of drinking and passed out halfway through. And the hair magazine she was using as a guide was actually an old issue of Zoobooks."

I don't think she's going to get a break for a while. She's a target with a big fat bulls-eye on her every misstep. In the old days, before 24/7 media coverage, it's possible that a Tara Reid would get a break. But since her "girls gone wild" schtick from a couple of years ago took off like a tabloid rocket, there doesn't seem to be anything but an ocean crash in her future. Her recent "plastic surgery nightmares tell-all" blip on the cover of US magazine seems to have done nothing for her career, except maybe ensured a mid season two-parter on Nip Tuck.

My suggestion: lose the blond hair, do regional theatre, call Lifetime and see if you can play a valiant women with four kids who works at Walmart and fights some new disease. Then come back.
