Tara Reid Thinks Hollywood's Still on Strike

Oh, Tara. Just when it seems like there's no humor left in the world, there you are to cheer us all up.

Ms. Reid, to reporters last week: "I totally plan to go back into acting once the strike stops."

And to answer your question: No. No, there is no strike right now.

Tara "Einstein" Reid continues: "The economy is so bad right now that people are afraid to put money back into acting. Even the shows that seem new, they really shot six months ago. So when it's all back up again, I will go back into it. That's my heart."

Actually, Tara -- and not that this matters in terms of your career -- but Hollywood traditionally does well during times of economic crisis, because there's less work and more need for escapism. They're like bars, Tara. Bars typically do well in times of economic crisis, too. I was going to mention here that you've probably already noticed more people in the bars you call home most nights, but you're too 'faced to notice anything at all most of the time, aren't you, dear?
