Tara Reid travel show pushes the limits of trashy. ''Josie'' actress has her priorities in order: drinking, then ''hook up,'' then ''party!'

In case you thought all those stories about Tara Reid being an out-of- control party girl were exaggerated, I direct your attention to Exhibit A: Taradise. Airing on E!, the show formerly known as Wild on Tara follows the movie star (Josie and the Pussycats) — okay, former movie star — as she hops around the globe getting half-naked and hitting on boys. You think I'm kidding? There was that time in Monaco when in the middle of a nice dinner she inexplicably blurted out, ''I need to get some ass.'' Come again? ''I need some booty. I've been out of America for five months and I'm horny.'' Tara Reid, ladies and gentlemen.

In fact, Reid's official to-do list when she arrived in Monaco featured such items as ''slurp wine,'' ''hook up!!!'' and ''party!!!'' (And, yes, in case you are wondering, they did appear in that order.) Instead of playing down her image as a boozing blonde, Reid has embraced her inner Jacuzzi floozy, and this fiasco is quickly shaping up to be the biggest public meltdown since Chernobyl. And yet I cannot look away.
