Yes, Reese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct while her husband was being arrested for a DUI. Evidently, she was trying to use her celeb status, asking the officer if he knew who she was. This is heartbreaking.
Reese Elle, what happened?
A part of me is shocked that this happened, but to be fair, she released a statement:
Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I am very sorry for my behavior.
Translation: I was hammered.
The other part of me is like, Reese, are you even really that relevant anymore? Now it makes you look worse that you were trying to use the “I’m famous” excuse because, well are you? If you’ve learned anything from this, I hope it’s that you should have stayed married to Ryan Phillippe.
So, just a reminder for everyone:
Reese, just take this time to hide out for a while and do you.
