WHAT an age we live in when a gorgeous female star who’s hit hard times can simply get her tits out to get her career back on track.

And they say wometara-reid-drunk1n are still struggling for equality and respect in the workplace. Well what do THEY know eh?

Just ask Tara ‘will swallow (pride) for cash’ Reid who stripped for Playboy this week after previously vowing not to.

Of course, she made that vow when she was famous for being fit and a bit mental. One wardrobe malfunction and a bit of botched surgery later, and suddenly the work offers are drying up.

That’s when kindly old uncle Hugh Hefner usually makes his move.

“I’ve been OK now for the last five or six years but people only show old pictures which is so unfair and that’s part of the reason why I did the Playboy shoot – to show the world this is me and this is what I look like,” said the heavily-airbrushed American Pie totty.
