“It’s a P-A-R-T-Y because I said sooooooo.”
When news of Reese Witherspoon‘s arrest for disorderly conduct broke last week, we wondered what it would do for her squeaky-clean image, but ultimately didn’t think it would really hurt. After all, she apologized promptly and classily, and then made a very likable appearance on Good Morning America this week, in which she owned up again, and said, “We knew better.” A perfectly handled mini-scandal, soon forgiven and forgotten, right? Until now. TMZ has video footage from the arrest, and it’s both hilarious and really unlikable.
If you are following along with the Reese Witherspoon arrest saga you may have heard that now Reese is back to her old self, showing off those genteel Southern roots we all know and love her for.

New research on a small sample of office workers indicates that when bored at the office we look to munchies and caffeinated beverages to perk us up. Bored workers are also more likely to hit a bar once they punch the clock, said study researcher Sandi Mann, of the University of Central Lancashire in the United Kingdom. Seriously they had to do an actual study on this? “About a third turn to alcohol at the end of a boring day, which is pretty high. We don’t know how much or if it’s excessive,” she told LiveScience in a telephone interview. “It’s just they would be more likely to drink at the end of a boring day than at the end of a non-boring day.” More
When Jenna Fagnan took over as president of the new ultra-premium tequila brand Tequila Avión in 2010, she was almost immediately faced with an extremely unusual challenge: Her tequila was famous, but most people didn’t know they could actually buy it. The spirit had played a major role in the seventh season of the HBO series Entourage, which saw the character Turtle in a season-long story arc trying to convince his actor friend Vince to promote the brand. This was more than a one-shot product placement deal. Tequila Avión was practically a supporting character.
