Tara Reid warns other women about the dangers of plastic surgery…then poses for Playboy.

Watch out, parents: those harmless fashion magazines and cute Princess movies and wholesome TV shows and other usual suspects glamorize tall, thin (except for nice perky breasts) and (often) blond. And your daughter may grow up to, like Tara Reid, to want to unnaturally enhance that beauty.

Post lipo (leaving scars), post breast implants (which she had to have re-done), she’s now posing (with bleached blond hair) for Playboy, that once-great troublemaking counterculture magazine with real literature that now has become the voice of the frat boy/fake breast/bleached blond establishment.

That said, Tara is warning other young women to do their research before getting implants or liposuction—a warning that, hopefully, will be heard. Via Huff Post:

Reid is known for the botched breast implants and stomach liposuction she had to have revised and later went public about, warning others to do their research before going under the knife.

“I know there are problems with my stomach. There are bumps on it, it’s uneven, but it’s not that bad. My stomach scars are my battle wounds.”

I personally hope that no loved one would go under the knife for such. I personally am not attracted to fleshy balloons, and don’t know any guys who are.

    Marion M anything for attention, good or bad.

    Fred Z Who is she?

    She's warning others to research their physicians, not warning them against the procedures. Plastic surgery is both a last resort and a short cut to getting something done. Some people won't have flat stomachs or big breasts even with exe……rcise or diet or means other than surgery, and telling people who want something that they're better off without isn't going to make them not want something.

    Tara Reid wears makeup, dyes her hair, probably has had all her body hair removed via laser, gets fake tans, has probably gotten botox, gets skin treatments all the time, probably has to watch her diet constantly, has a personal trainer to keep her body looking okay for her profession, but her surgery is the problem? It's a good thing she takes that too far, otherwise those of us who want to live our lives as we please might have to evaluate our own wishes in regard to personal beauty, at least we might have to do that before judging her.See More

    Fernanda F she did someth she does not recommend? is she crazy?

    Karki M No, she did something she recommends others take more care in doing. Not crazy so much as in favor of reassessing the risks.

    Ted LS, LS, it'll never end.

    Jodi H wow, what compels our human race to find that wearing an huge set of ass cheeks on our chest is attractive? I'll never know..

    Would it have been too hard to leave off the last sentence? I realize the article is dated, but I love elephant journal and have never thought this to be a place for snark or body-shaming.

    Thanks for the article and I believe that being an actress has a lot of pressure on having the best body.
