The Reid Breed

Sexpot [Seks Pot]
n. Informal
A woman considered to have sex appeal

Lately, it seems as if all my childhood favorite super-stars (specifically Tara Reid, Lindsey Lohan and Britney Spears) have proved to neither have the morals nor liver for the young Hollywood lifestyle. Sadly, at one point during puberty I considered Tara to be one of the sexiest women in Hollywood (can I somehow blame it on the raging hormones?) As pathetic as this sounds her role as Melody Valentine in Josie and the Pussycats (also a comic I loved) made me want to play the drums because
she just looked so damn hot! Unfortunately, Tara developed a bad reputation as an out of control party girl and since then her life has become fairly predictable... Rumors began circulating that she was written off of scrubs due to her hard PAArtying ways, she was admitted into the Promises Rehab facility in 2008 for alcoholism and anorexia, the two major films she appeared in, My Boss's Daughter and Alone in the Dark, were ripped apart by critics, and since then most of her movies have gone straight to DVD. She now earns the majority of her income by making public appearances at nightclubs etc. However, this year has been a step in the right direction for Tara. In the past Tara refused on multiple occasions to pose for playboy because of a botched tummy tuck and boob job (and perhaps a naive dream that somewhere, somehow people still thought she was a role-model of innocence). This year she attempted to redeem her sexpot image by posing topless in Playboys October issue. I am also happy to say that this year marks her engagement to internet entrepreneur (cash cow) Michael Axtmann. I can't help but wonder is Tara in the midst of doing a 180? Could she still make a comeback and become the sex symbol she once was?
Enclosed is an old photo pre-drug & alcohol abuse/body self-mutilation as well as a recent (extremely photoshopped) photo from her October Playboy issue.
