We’re kicking off the year with Tara Beaulieu. She’s the sexy host of TruTV’s Killer Karaoke and was of course on Naked News. You’ve also seen her in Vogue, FHM, Maxim, Rolling Stone, billboards, and the list goes on! She stood in for Lindsay Lohan on Glee when the latter was hours late on set, not to mention a steamy scene as Patrick’s girlfriend on 90210. Tara is a this self-styled “bikini addict!” and an “instagram addict” which is one hell of combo for such a stunning, curvaceous model! Check out our exclusive interview!
Where are you originally from? Newcastle, Australia.
Where’s home now?
Now I live in L.A.
How’s that working out for you?
I don’t plan on leaving anytime soon! I love it here way too much!
Most influential gigs so far?
I’ve been lucky enough to do some great work but probably co-hosting Killer Karaoke on Trutv alongside Steve-O from Jackass on season 1 and then Mark McGrath from Sugar Ray on season 2.
You’ve hosted TV shows like Killer Karaoke and reported for Naked News. What inspires you to take on such wild roles?
I wasn’t naked on Naked News just so you know! Everyone assumes I was. I love fun jobs that make me laugh every day. It doesn’t feel like work when you are enjoying every minute of it.
What type of acting role would you like to take on that you haven’t already?
I want to play a superhero! [Editor’s Note: One of the best answers ever!]
As a “bikini addict,” what is it about bikini modeling that excites you?
It doesn’t! Ha! But it pays the bills and I have been fortunate to work with some of the world’s best photographers. It’s nice to have some good shots I can look back on when I’m 80.
How long can you stay away from your cell phone without going crazy?I have a serious Instagram addiction! I’m on it way too much. So, probably an hour would kill me!
Are you more of a guy’s girl or a girl’s girl?
For sure a guy’s girl. I have a bunch of real close girlfriends but more guy friends. My friends describe me as a guy with boobs!
Give us a fun fact about you.
I won the Australian step aerobics championship when I was 17. (My dad loves to tell everyone that)… a very proud moment for him haha!
What’s the most common question that people ask you?
“Are your eyes real?” I have really blue eyes, but yes they are real.
Your philosophy of life in 3 words.
Believe, create, succeed.
Worst pick-up line used on you?
We are Instagram friends so we should be real life friends.” I wasn’t following them either so that’s just weird.
Tell us at least one thing every man should know about women.
Compliments go a very long way!
Best upcoming projects?
Killer Karaoke season 2 starts airing in February 2014 on TruTV.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I’m currently writing my own show ideas, so hopefully producing and working on that.
