It turns out even addicts are affected by the economy. Star magazine alleges that Promises, the fancy rehab Tara Reid is vacationing at, is sponsoring Tara’s stay in hopes that name dropping her to the press will boost declining enrollment. Star says,
“Enrollment is down due to the bad economy, so in an effort to drum up publicity, they asked around Hollywood to see who wanted to stay there for free.”
What a great plan. Because if Tara Reid approves of it, it must be good. Right? Not really. Tara has a Pavlovian response to the word “free.” I heard she once ate dog food for a week because Purina offered her a year’s supply.
