Sharknado, a SyFy project looked on its surface like a nadir in the career of Tara Reid, turned into just the opposite. Since 2013, SyFy has cranked out five more installments, with Reid starring alongside Iain Ziering in all of them. The Last Sharknado wrapped things up in August, but it appears Reid’s arc with the series isn’t over. Variety reports that the performer is suing infamous “mockbuster” studio Asylum for using her likeness on beer cans and slot machines without her consent.
As her suit outlines, Reid’s contract forbid producers from using her likeness on products related to gambling, alcohol, tobacco, or sex without her written permission.
