They say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions (a phrase that should really be updated, because at this point I’m sure the paving company is using a 50/50 mix of asphalt and KUWTK reruns). But in Reese Witherspoon’s case, that phrase could be specifically tailored (get it?) to say: the road to Legal Hell is paved with a misguided social media dress contest. Because TMZ is reporting that Reese Witherspoon and her clothing label Draper James have been named in a class-action lawsuit.
Have you downloaded Quibi? Apparently, no one has recently. The streaming service which based its whole platform idea on delivering short content meant to be taken in quick bursts has been struggling during the coronavirus lockdown. It seems people don’t want to watch short clips of Chrissy Teigen making arbitrary legal rulings and shit when they could just binge Netflix for twelve hours at a time. Quibi has laid off some employees and cut overtime for others. Meanwhile, Reese Witherspoon got a $6 million check to narrate one of Quibi’s worst-performing shows.
So, Legally Blonde 3 has been in the works for a couple years now, right? News that was equal parts exciting and worrisome. We certainly don’t need another crapfest like Legally Blonde 2. But now, things seem to be looking up. Deadline reports that Mindy Kaling will reunite with her A Wrinkle in Time co-star Reese Witherspoon to co-write the screenplay, along with Dan Goor, a writer/producer known for his work on The Daily Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Brooklyn Nine Nine and Parks & Recreation. This is Mindy and Dan’s second screenplay together. Their first was for an upcoming wedding comedy starring Mindy and Priyanka Chopra (it’s just Mindy ripping on footage of Priyanka and Nick Jonas’ many, many weddings). Continue reading
It’s not often we get video proof of celebrities acting like dummies with the law, but Oscar-winning American Citizen™, Reese Witherspoon, gave us one for the ages back in 2013 when her and husband, Jim Toth, were pulled over for doing some fucked-up driving in Atlanta. Reese, despite not being asked by the cop to get out of the car, got out of the car, readjusted her Zooey Deschanel wig and in a soft, yet pointed voice, blurted out some “do you know who I am?” nonsense.
As we know, Jim was arrested for DUI and failure to maintain a lane while driving and Reese was charged with disorderly conduct. Well, Reese is opening up about the fiasco and, needless to say, she’s no longer Laura Jeanne “THIS IS BEYOND” Poon. Well, not when a recording device is around anyway.
Ellen DeGeneres just sent Reese Witherspoon an extra-large gluten-free muffin basket with a note saying, “Thank you SO much.” Because Reese is officially this week’s Blonde Celebrity From Louisiana Who Tried To Lighten The Mood, But Ended Up Pissing Off The Internet Instead. Reese Witherspoon wanted to do something for America’s teachers, who are working extra-harder during the COVID-19 pandemic. Reese announced that her clothing company, Draper James, will give free dresses to teachers. Unfortunately, Reese didn’t think about the logistics, and she was left with a huge mess on her hands.
I don’t know which Project Runway reject fucked up the Overstock.com bedsheet challenge this badly either. And to think, we were so worried about Lizzo getting her juice all over the folding chairs at The Staples Center, we forgot to worry about potential coochie-contact with the upholstered seats at the Shrine Auditorium. However, Sarah Hyland’s short and confusing floral 4th of July bunting skirt was an outlier. For the most part, the outfits on display at last night’s Screen Actors’ Guild Awards were a lot more conservative, ranging from the tiered ruffles and billowy chiffon of a modest religious sect, to tailored suits. On ladies! Hollywood is confusing.
