Tara Reid is looking for someone to share her spacious condo with in Playa del Rey, Calif., but her reputation has made the search difficult. “Tara really wanted to get a random roommate this summer and she liked the idea of making a new friend,” says one potential co-habitant. “But I backed out because I didn’t know if she’d be reliable or if the living situation would be too out of control.” Maybe the applicant was right to be cautious: A lonely Tara, 32, has already hosted a string of house parties this summer. “She’s desperate to get people to her place,” a friend reports. “She’s been throwing lots of get-togethers.” “Nobody’s living in her three-bedroom home with her,” says an insider.
