Tara Reid, 37, confused a TV audience while discussing the mating habits of animals on the Discovery Channel’s Shark After Dark program on Tuesday.
She was appearing with Sharknado co-star Ian Ziering when she asked, ‘how do a whale and a shark have sex’? Seeing the baffled expressions on the faces of host Josh Wolf and Ziering, she attempted to explain what she meant:
‘Today, I was like, all right, I don’t wanna, like, sound stupid when I do this show today, like… so I learned a little education on sharks….so I look up sharks on the internet and I see whale sharks so I’m like that must mean that a whale and a shark have sex and then it made me think how do a whale and a shark have sex?’
Seeing that this ‘explanation’ did nothing to ease their confusion, she blithely continued:
‘There is a thing called whale sharks and then I realized whales are mammals and sharks are animals so they have nothing to do with each other….so basically the dolphins have sex with each other but the sharks don’t, so then I thought how is it such a thing?”
Blissfully unaware of the effect her convoluted explanation was having on the audience, Reid continued to share her misinformation:
“But the difference is there is a whale shark which is the biggest shark in the ocean, he’s also scary and then you have the great white who’s also scary. There are over 400 kinds of shark but the whale shark is kind of interesting because he’s so mean – he’s like a killer.’
So, now you know. Is Tara Reid a world authority on whales and sharks? Or did she confirm everything that people believe about blondes but are afraid to say? Let us know in the comments feed below.
