Tara Reid hits out at Jenny McCarthy

Los Angeles: Tara Reid has hit out at Jenny McCarthy, saying her idea of discussing the actress' frequently incendiary stint on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars" on her radio show, was to garner ratings. Reid made waves last month when she walked out off McCarthy's radio show mid-interview when the latter asked a few questions on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars". On Friday, Reid landed a dig at the former Playmate Of The Year at "Hollywood Today Live". When co-host Ross Matthews broached the topic, the 40-year-old confided her belief that McCarthy had 'purposefully' manoeuvred the interview into a quarrel "to get ratings", reports dailymail.co.uk. Reid said: "You know, good for you, Jenny. At least now people know you have a show." She claimed there was no other reason for McCarthy to have, in her view, started the argument.  "We never even had beef so I don't even know where that came from," she said. While on McCarthy's show, the New Jersey native was promoting her role in "Sharknado: The 4th Awakens" and struggled to turn the conversation back to the TV movie. When McCarthy persisted in bringing up the TV series, Reid said: '"Babe. I asked you, please let's not talk about the show. We're all here about 'Sharknado'."
