  • Actress Tara Reid wants American to heed the warnings of "Sharknado 2: The Second One," which premieres next week.

Tara Reid has been through a lot: wardrobe malfunctions, the cyclone of negative press that wiped out "Taradise," playing mother to an actor seven years her junior in 2013's "Sharknado."

Add real-life shark tornadoes to her list of worries.

"You know, it actually can happen. I mean, the chances of it happening are very rare, but it can happen actually," the actress told GQ magazine in an article published Wednesday.

The Reid hypothesis is not without scientific precedent -- Roman philosopher Pliny the Elder documented storms of frogs in the first century A.D., while a North Korean fisherman was reportedly knocked unconscious by an unaccountably airborne squid in 1997.

"The chances of it are, like, you know, it's like probably 'pigs could fly,'" she said. "Like, I don't think pigs could fly, but actually sharks could be stuck in tornados. There could be a sharknado."

Her co-stars in "Sharknado 2," which is premiering on Syfy on Wednesday, mused about who they'd want on their real-life sharknado-fighting teams.

"[Samuel L.] Jackson," actress Vivica Fox said. "He's been up with some snakes on a plane."

Jolie hates Pitt's psychic?

Angelina Jolie has ordered paramour Brad Pitt to stop seeing his longtime psychic, Ron Bard.

At least, that's what the National Enquirer says.

It's not that Jolie is opposed to the occult: She just questions his fiscal acumen.

"It seems like she likes to have some control over Brad's purse strings, and she doesn't want a psychic giving 'financial advice' to him," a source told the National Enquirer.

"You don't have to be a psychic to see how this ridiculous story ends," snarked Gossip Cop, which gave the farfetched tale a zero on its truth meter.
