Tara Reid: Jenny McCarthy “Bullied Me” During Radio Interview (AUDIO)
Tara Reid walked out of a radio interview with Jenny McCarthy on Friday after the SiriusXM host pressed her about plastic surgery and other personal topics. The actress exclusively tells Gossip Cop that she felt “bullied” by McCarthy, who Reid also says acted “unprofessional.” Listen to the audio below.
Reid was on the radio show to promote her upcoming SyFy channel movie, Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens, but McCarthy was more interested in the actress’s recent appearance on “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars.” “The whole thing is absolutely so stupid and silly,” Reid told McCarthy of the reality show, adding, “It’s not worth the time to talk about.” McCarthy, however, went on to ask Reid if she was either “pissed off” at the show or regretted doing it, to which Reid said, “Babe, I asked you, please let’s not talk about the show. We’re all here about Sharknado.”
After asking just one question pertaining to Sharknado, McCarthy then began grilling Reid about her past plastic surgeries. “I haven’t had any surgery for a while,” noted the frustrated actress, but the host followed up by saying, “So you’re good and done not moving forward with plastic surgery?” “I think I made that clear like a hundred times,” shot back Reid, who was getting increasingly annoyed by the line of questioning.
From there, Reid and McCarthy began trading veiled insults at each other, with McCarthy telling the actress, “I hope you stay married,” and referencing her supposed “wobbly knees.” Pointing out McCarthy’s own cosmetic enhancement, Reid shot back, “I hope your t*ts got even nicer,” before storming out of the studio.
Gossip Cop spoke to Reid shortly after the incident, and the actress tells us that McCarthy “was completely unprofessional and she completely bullied me.” Reid added, “Her questions came out of left field when the main focus was about my film, Sharknado.” Listen to the altercation go down in the audio below.
