Reese Witherspoon Loves A Good Rom-Com

“I love romantic comedies. I watch them all the time. I love all my fellow female romantic comedy queens, like Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner and Katie Heigl. I also think that the questions romantic comedies ask about men and women are universal.”

Reese Witherspoon defends the film genre that pays her bills in the January 2011 (!!!) issue of Glamour. You know, I’m gonna agree with her. Yes, often the writing is crap. But honestly, I relate to a lot of the female characters in romantic comedies, though not always proudly. Keep reading »

Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond Gives Away Mixers, 43,000 Commenters Clamor For Them

A couple months ago, I started reading The Pioneer Woman blog. It’s run by a woman named Ree Drummond, who has a cowboy for a husband, and a crew of kids, and lives on a ranch in Oklahoma. She’s like Dooce, but not so cranky. She writes about her life, and posts photographs, and blogs about cooking. By doing this, she’s gotten famous and successful. Currently, her life is being turned into a movie starring Reese Witherspoon, and she’s written a cookbook. Supposedly, her blog gets in the neighborhood of 13 million page views a month. So I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when, recently, she wrote a post in which she was giving away three candy apple red Kitchen Aid mixers. It retails for up to $400. To enter to win, all you had to do was a post a comment in which you stated your level of happiness on a scale of one to 10. That give-away post got nearly 43,000 comments. I don’t know how many comments the most commented-on post on The Frisky has gotten, but I know it’s not 43,000 (although we haven’t started giving away mixers — yet). That that many people wanted a free mixer has boggled my mind. It just seems strange to me. A mixer? Really? Enlighten me, girls. [The Pioneer Woman] Keep reading »

The Frisky Plays Matchmaker For Reese Witherspoon

It looks like Reese Witherspoon may be ready to play the field again after her split from hottie BF Jake Gyllenhaal. A single and ready-to-mingle Reese was spotted at a Santa Monica Italian restaurant, Locanda Portofino, last Thursday with big-time Hollywood agent Jim Toth. Yeah, he’s easy on the eyes for sure, but I’m thinking he is probably a rebound if anything. Let’s help find Reese someone special this Valentine’s Day season. After the jump, our suggestions for whom Reese should date next. Keep reading »

Do You Swap Clothes With Friends?

She might have plenty of money to buy new clothes, but Reese Witherspoon would rather swap with friends. “There are three of us who wear pretty much the same size,” she said in an interview recently. “We’ll get together on a Friday night and I’ll bring clothes I want to trade and they’ll bring theirs. We swap shoes and handbags a lot. I wore my girlfriend’s dress to a wedding recently. It’s fun.”

After reading her quote, I got to thinking. While I’m a huge fan of vintage shopping (despite my mother’s displeasure with my second-hand finds), I never swap clothes with friends. It’s not that my friends aren’t stylish — quite the opposite really. Plus, we’re all just about the same size so clothes would fit perfectly, but as soon as I get tired of an item, I’ll throw it in the pile for Beacon’s Closet or Goodwill instead of thinking of the girls in my life. Shame on me. So here’s a New Year’s resolution I’ll add to the list: more girls’ nights complete with a swap theme. Gossip, drinks, plus new clothes!

What about you? Do you regularly swap with friends? [InStyle UK via SF Gate] Keep reading »

Jake Gyllenhaal Tries to Win Back Reese Witherspoon With Dinnerware

In Touch is reporting that in an effort to woo Reese Witherspoon back, ex-boyfriend Jake Gyllenhaal sent her $75,000 in vintage dinnerware as a Christmas gift. ““He isn’t giving up without a fight,” a friend of his tells In Touch. I don’t know who this says more about — Reese or Jake — that he thought a bunch of expensive old plates would win back her heart. I mean, can you just hear it? Reese: “Well, I really thought it was over. He moved out. We spent the holidays apart. I explained to the kids that he wouldn’t be around anymore. But then I got a box of old plates. From France! And now I’m just not sure where things stand …”

So, let’s hear it; I’m sure you guys have your own stories: What have former flames done to try to win back your heart? And were they successful? [via In Touch] Keep reading »

The Top 10 Most Shocking Celebrity Breakups!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are reportedly donezo. Though nothing has been officially confirmed and the couple was seen together earlier this week, it would be a slightly shocking breakup, mostly for the alleged claim that Rihanna is JT’s other woman. After three years of on-again, off-again for Jessica and Justin, all it took was some sightings with the feisty singer to launch a truckload of rumors. [Terra] Though they might not be over IRL, it reminded us of some other shocking celebrity breakups! Keep reading »
