12:45 PM PT — In a tweet later on Friday afternoon, Tara Reid blamed her absence from the AOL interview on “back issues.”
Tara Reid has left NYC but she wasn’t quite done with her press tour — bailing on the AOL Build Series she was scheduled to appear on with “Sharknado” co-star Ian Ziering — after a series of bizarre interviews.
Reid was booked for an interview on Friday alongside Ziering but sources tell The Blast that she didn’t show up. Video of Ziering arriving to the interview this morning shows him in good spirits. It’s unsure if he was informed at the time he’d be doing the appearance solo.
Reid posted a video at the airport, riding around on a cart, claiming to be done with the press tour. But according to a press release about this specific appearance, she was scheduled to be part of the interview.
It’s unclear why the actress was a no-show but it may have to do with the strange behavior she’s been exhibiting the past 12 hours.
Just this morning, she sat down with Fox 5 NY where she was slurring and stumbling over her words, similar to another interview she did last night with Channel Nine’s “Today Extra” in Sydney.
