Tara Reid is finally embracing her partying image – and putting it to work for cable’s E! network.

The American Pie star has signed on to host the channel’s globetrotting party series Wild On! when the new season starts in August, the network has announced.

As E! says in its press release, “Known for hitting Hollywood’s hotspots, Tara will now take viewers along as she skips to the front of the line and straight past the bouncer at the wildest parties in the world.”

It’s a far cry from Reid’s recent past, where she expressed frustration that she wasn’t being taken seriously in Hollywood, following reports about her party-hopping.

“Everyone thinks I’m always that girl, but I’m like, ‘Wait, there’s a side of me that’s normal,'” she said in 2003. But then again, she added: “If a girl wants to go out and have fun, let her.”

As for the rest of her personal life, Reid, 29, most recently has been photographed out and about with another unashamed partier, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
