Our little Vegas production of “Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens” has led to a falling out between “Sharknado” leading lady Tara Reid and her friend/interviewer Jenny McCarthy.
Reid abruptly ended an interview on McCarthy’s SiriusXM radio show after McCarthy kept asking about Reid’s old plastic surgery.
“Are you still going through surgeries?” McCarthy asked.
“No, I haven’t had any surgery for a while, Jenny,” Reid said, sounding peeved.
“So you’re good and done not moving forward with plastic surgery?” McCarthy pressed on.
“I think I made that clear about 100 times,” gravely voiced Reid said, then started to say goodbye.
“I hope you stay married,” McCarthy sniped at exiting Reid. “I hope your knees get a little wobblier than they already are. … Love you, Tara. Good luck with ‘Sharknado 18.’”
Oofa. What was that all about?
You can be the one to ask Reid, since she’s slated to be at the “Sharknado 4” premiere at the Stratosphere hotel on July 31.
Rapper Bobby “DTTX” Ramirez, who was in A Lighter Shade of Brown, has died in Vegas.
He reportedly was found unconscious on a Las Vegas street with a body temperature of 107 degrees on July 7. He was in a coma for 11 days in a hospital here before dying.
Ramirez, 46, and A Lighter Shade of Brown were noted for being one of the first self-described Chicano outfits to reach hip-hop radio.
“Rest In The Lord’s Shade,” a memorial photo wishes on a Facebook page where his family broke the news.
NBA STARS EVERYWHERE
It’s almost as if you can’t throw a souvenir drink cup without hitting an NBA player eating and partying on the Strip this week.
The latest: At Topgolf Tuesday night, there was some golf range action in a celebrity suite peopled by LeBron James, Chris Paul, Russell Westbrook, D’Angelo Russell, Devin Booker, Tristan Thompson (he went to Findlay Prep high school in Henderson) and Karl-Anthony Towns.
On Wednesday, James returned to a cabana in Tao Beach dayclub pool with Cleveland Cavaliers comrades Thompson and Dahntay Jones. (Tao Beach is where James was Monday before partying with the Cavs team at Marquee nightclub.)
Wednesday night, that Cavaliers group from Tao ate at Lavo restaurant with Paul, Carmelo Anthony and Richard Jefferson, dining on chicken Parmesan, steak and salmon oreganato.
At 1 Oak nightclub Wednesday: NBA star Kyrie Irving and NFL star Ed Dickson, who was being a friendly mingler at his birthday party with friends.
Light nightclub in Mandalay Bay hosted its three-year anniversary Wednesday night with a crowd appearance by Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson, who joined DJ Metro Boomin on the DJ booth with NBA greats Scottie Pippen, Derrick Rose and Thompson. (Poker pro Phil Hellmuth was in Light, too.)
Seems like Vegas had only combat sports two months ago and nothing but sports all summer.
PETS NEED PEOPLE
You know I’m a sucker for homeless animals, so: The Animal Foundation will waive adoption fees from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at 655 N. Mojave Road (with help from sponsors Telemundo and Petco Foundation). They can’t waive the city’s $10 license, but if you can’t afford $10 to save a life, it’s understandable that you have your own challenges to deal with.
WHERE YOU CAN SEE YOUR OWN SIGHTINGS
On Friday, Beer Park in the Paris hotel will host a 4 p.m. arrival of the NBA’s David Robinson, Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond.
