Reese Witherspoon Credits Her Brother With Getting Her Through The Biggest Mistake Of Her Life

October 22nd, 2007 // 7 Comments

Seriously, she divorced a beautiful, beautiful man. Call me shallow but it’s like she barred herself from being able to look at that everyday. Why exile yourself from Fantasy Island? Reese Witherspoon says that her older brother John really helped her get through her painful divorce from Ryan Phillippe. He called her several times a day. He was probably looking for some of that “Legally Blonde” money.

“It’s been a challenging year. But I feel I am so lucky to have a wonderful family and great friends,” Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.

“My brother calls me three times a day to see how I’m doing and that’s a real stabilising element in my life,” she added.

Seriously, she has to miss being able to rest her head on Ryan’s abs. Then again, they were carved out of heavenly marble so maybe that wouldn’t be too comfortable.

    It’s called suicide watch.

    I wonder if this is the same bro who was busted for drugs and breaking & entering or something like that a few years ago…it’s on the Smoking Gun. If it is, he’s totally not hot…and I dig the hell outta fat blondes.

    Totally agree, Babs — 100% Ryan’s loss. He doesn’t have the mega-star power she has, for sure. Plus he always looks like he’s mad at the world— not attractive. Grow up, Ryan.

    Are you kidding Ryan looks like he just broke out of prison. He can barely stop smiling when he explaining how hard it was to split up. Boy is very happy to be free of this shrew.

    And her brother is an attempted rapist. I hope her super supportive parents are soooo proud of him too!!

    Why isn’t he in jail? Because they knew the judge that’s why. Money can buy you anything especially down south.
