Tara Reid has long been known as a party girl. But the American Pie actress, who entered rehab last week, is trying to change her life for the better.
The specific reason behind her decision to check into Promises Treatment Center had not been revealed, but a source tells PEOPLE in its new issue: "Tara has a problem with alcohol. It’s been at the root of much discomfort between herself and her family and friends."
In fact, the source says that Reid's relationship with her family and close friends "has been strained" recently. "She becomes erratic and is a completely different person when she's intoxicated, which is hard for people close to her to watch."

Tara Reid has a message for anyone wishing to criticize her body: Enough already!
After unflattering bikini shots of her surfaced last week, Reid faced a barrage of Internet attacks aimed at her post-surgery figure. "I've been a media target for years now," the actress, 32, tells PEOPLE. "It does hurt my feelings, but what can I do? I have to move on."
Yet moving on has been difficult, especially because Reid has to live with the evidence of the past – the scars on her stomach from a 2004 liposuction surgery and subsequent reconstructive surgery in 2006. "They are my battle wounds," she says of her "uneven" abs.

To celebrate finishing her second album, I Am Me (set to drop in October), Ashlee Simpson wasn't just content to have a party. She decided to join the celebrity tattoo brigade. The singer-actress, who makes her movie debut in the new indie drama Undiscovered, had cherries inked on her ankle and the word "love" emblazoned on the inside of her left wrist. "I got 'love' because for me love is the most important thing. So I can give people love." Let's hope her parents can share that love. "I'm sure I'll get more tattoos but my parents are begging me not to."
