TARA REID BURSTS NEW BRIDE NICKY'S BUBBLE

Published on: September 20, 2004

People, get those bets down NOW on Paris Hilton sis Nicky's trouble-plagued marriage to financial dude Todd Meister -- odds are falling fast! First came ENQUIRER headlines about battling that began right after the "I do's" now here's my scoop on how nasty it got after tattletale Tara Reid phoned pal Nicky with bombshell news: The Todd-meister had slipped into LA without letting his new bride know . . . and was secretly partying at a pal's pad, sources say! Unluckily for Todd, Tara showed up at the same bash and immediately confronted the undercover groom! "Where is Nicky?" Tara demanded. "Does she know you're in town?" Todd admitted he'd just flown in from New York, where his business is based, and hadn't gone home to Nicky first. "Please don't tell her you saw me," he pleaded. But girls will be girls -- and Tara phoned Nicky moments later to meow the shocking news. Nicky EXPLODED -- and immediately raced to the party to confront her elusive hubby! Trying to calm his raging bride, Todd told her: "I flew in to surprise you and just stopped by to have a quick drink first." Snapped Nicky: "We're getting out of here right NOW!" She burst into tears and stormed out -- with Todd meekly bringing up the rear. But it gets WORSE! Here's the rest of the story Nicky still doesn't know: Todd has secretly sublet a friend's LA condo so he can slip in and out from New York -- with Nicky none the wiser! . . . Now that's what I call chutzpah! In my never-ending quest for the facts, I contacted reps for Nicky, Todd and Tara. Nicky and Todd's mouthpiece neither confirmed nor denied the blowup but "unequivocally" denied that Todd secretly sublet a condo. Tara Reid's PR person denied her client was at any party with Todd.
