Tara Reid Reportedly Demands a Retail Discount, Is Denied, and Then Throws a Hissy Fit
Tara Reid spent her second weekend at Coachella allegedly demanding discounts at clothing stores, not being recognized and then getting kicked out of said retail establishments for throwing drunken tantrums.
Miss Reid reportedly went shopping at the British import store All Saints in L.A., when she was overheard demanding a discount for being famous. Said a Page Six source, “She was screaming. She had to be escorted out by security. She seemed drunk.”
Which would imply that they didn’t recognize Reid at all, whose accomplishments include 1999′s ‘American Pie,’ dating Carson “Who?” Daly and starring in the upcoming ‘Sharknado’ — which follows the trials and tribulations of a town dealing with a shark-infested tornado. (No, seriously.)
However, a representative who was with Reid at the time says this wasn’t entirely true. As she claimed, “Tara gets a huge discount with All Saints in the UK and Paris because she’s a walking billboard for them. She gets photographed … so they give her huge hookups.”
“We told [the L.A. store] we get a discount, and they said they’d email the press team,” the rep continued, saying a sales clerk came back to say Reid was denied a discount. The store offered to hold the clothes but Tara left empty-handed of her own accord — not being shoved out by security.
“She was definitely not drunk. People love to say Tara’s hammered and this and that … whoever is saying that is not on Team Tara,” her rep concluded.
Oh, she was sober? Well no wonder no one recognized her.
