Tara Reid (born November 8, 1975) is an American actress. She is known for her roles in the films The Big Lebowski (1998), American Pie (1999), American Pie 2 (2001), National Lampoon's Van Wilder (2002), My Boss's Daughter (2003), and Alone in the Dark (2005).
Reid was born in Wyckoff, New Jersey to Donna and Tom Reid, both of whom are teachers and day care center owners. She attended Dwight D. Eisenhower Middle School then went to Ramapo High School in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey. She has a younger sister, Colleen, and two brothers, Tom and Patrick (who is a twin of Colleen). Reid grew up in New Jersey.
Taradise, her half-hour television show on the E! network, premiered in September 2005; it was cancelled the following month. The show was an updated incarnation of E!'s popular series Wild On, where a celebrity host or model traveled to exotic locations to party with locals. Previously during Summer 2005, she was busy shooting Incubus in Romania at an assortment of clubs with Bucharest's local socialites. In January 2007, Reid filmed a commercial with Daniel Conn for Dodo, an Australian budget phone and Internet provider.
On the night of November 4, 2004, Reid was embarrassed by a wardrobe malfunction at a highly-publicized photo shoot at Puff Daddy's 35th birthday party at Cipriani's Restaurant in New York City, when her dress fell, exposing her left breast. Photos of Reid having larger, perkier breasts than before had been circulating the Internet for several months before the incident, igniting rumors of Reid having undergone a breast augmentation. Scar tissue was visible around Reid's nipple, confirming rumors of breast implants. The photographs were widely distributed. In August 2005, she publicly admitted getting breast augmentation surgery. In October 2006, she admitted in an interview with Us Weekly that she also had liposuction. In the interview she also discusses how her plastic surgery "went wrong," and also explains why she decided to have plastic surgery done, saying that her breasts were uneven and that she had saggy skin. In the same interview, Reid's new plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Svehlak, reported that he performed a procedure called a doughnut mastopexy to correct her original breast augmentation.
On New Year's Eve 2006, at a large celebration in Chicago, Reid made several numerical errors in hosting the minute-long countdown for the year. A video of the incident circled the Internet.
