Forget The Arrest: Reese Witherspoon’s Baby ‘Stole’ Her ‘Brain’ She Says

Reese Witherspoon has misplaced her brain she says, but don’t put the blame on her – instead tie it up in pretty wrapping paper, tie a bow around it and place it on her baby boy’s lap.

The 37-year-old Mud star tells Red magazine that she’s so pre-occupied with her children that she’s forgotten everything else (presumably even that you’re not supposed to let your hammered husband get behind the wheel of a car).

“Ever since I had the baby [son Tennessee, by husband Jim Toth ], I can’t remember anything,” says Reese.

“Serious, this child stole my brain.

“I’m losing friendships over forgetting to    get back to people.

“But you can’t keep up with everything. I’ve got a 13-year-old [Ava Phillippe], a nine-year-old [Deacon Phillippe] and a baby.”

She says wondering what her children are up to is: “like CNN ticker tape running through my mind at all times . . .’Where is Ava? She’s okay. Good. Where is Deacon? He’s okay. Good. Where is Tennessee? Is he okay? Yes. Great. Back to Ava…’ It doesn’t stop.”

Reese then says that fans show her lots of love when she’s out and about: “People definitely hug me a lot, and hand me their babies. But it’s better than people throwing stuff at me, right?” she added. “I’m always met with smiles.”

Although this interview was conducted before her April 19th arrest for disorderly conduct, I am sure we’re going to see lots more glimpses into Witherspoon’s life as a devoted yet harassed mother-of-three (just like Us!) as she attempts to wipe her boozy night out from our memories – rather than the ones she used to give where she banged on about being such a tightly-controlled Type A personality that she named her production company ‘Type A Films’.

She also adds a weird insight into her friendship with Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore: ”I don’t know what I would have done so many times in my life if I hadn’t had my girlfriends,” Reese says. “They have literally gotten me up out of bed, taken my clothes off, put me in the shower, dressed me, said, ‘Hey, you can do this,’ put my high heels on and pushed me out the door!”

Cameron’s clearly a gal who has a problem with boundaries. I can honestly say that none of my friends have ever come into the bathroom when I’ve been having a shower, let alone barged into my home and washed and dressed me.

If she was really a good friend, she’d have stopped Reese from calling her son Tennessee Toth – as well as being blamed for turning his mother into a boozy, forgetful mentalist he’s been saddled with one of the most ridiculous celebrity sprog names since Moses Martin.

    O.K not to mention all the help that does the daily things the rest of us do by ourselves

    Do yourself a favor, Don’t Drink

  2. Freak on a Leash says:

    Who is she trying to impress with all these lies? She should have tripped off into the sunset and forgotten to come back after Legally Blonde.

  3. Roberta says:

    That’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard!

  4. TutuMirabele says:

    So even before this drunken night of hers she basically admitted to drinking… So you need your friends or just somebody else to do the basic for you? Bathing, showering and putting your own clothes on? You are too drunk? Hangover? Being a wife and a mother of three little kids who need a parent you acting like an alcoholic :/ I get the feeling, that what Reese says and what Reese does are two different things… Sad. I feel sad for the children.

      And apparently she and her friends need to learn a little something about boundaries and personal space.I can’t imagine trying to shower and dress a friend. I’m all for being there for a friend in need but you need to draw the line somewhere. And maybe therapy is a better option if you can’t even perform daily functions? Just sayin.

    And that pic of her in a car. Her face tells it all. Nice timing for the release….

    I think we should cut her some slack – we all make mistakes!!

    • TutuMirabele says:

      Yeah, we all are drunk drivers by occasion…? Sure…. It’s not a mistake, it’s a crime and she and her husband have to take the consequences of that behaviour. Do you think that a victim of a drunk driver feels better because some celebrity drove him over? People regardless of their status need to learn that this is a serious crime, they really might hurt or even kill somebody.

    oops, picture #2 a (slurring) lil’Southern Comfert…
