I have to say, Reese Witherspoon's arrest tapes are SO much better than Legally Blonde 2. And they just keep on a comin'! It's a whole franchise at this point. First we heard about how when Reese and her agent husband, Jim Toth, were arrested in Atlanta, Georgia, Reese got all on her high horse and pulled that old "Don't you know who I AM?" routine. Then we heard how Reese claimed to be pregnant to use the bathroom. Reese swears she's not really pregnant and was just saying "crazy stuff." But it would be pretty embarrassing if it turned out she was pregnant and sloshed, eh? Now another tape has come out that records Reese bickering in the backseat of the squad car with her husband. It really gives you some insight as to who calls the shots in this marriage. And you probably already know it's not Jim!
Once Reese is cuffed and put in the back of the car with her blotto husband, who was arrested on a DUI charge, Jim sighs like a man with the weight of the world on his shoulders and asks, "Whyyy are you doing this?"
"He's arresting us," observes the astute Reese.
"I understand but -- " Jim hopelessly tries to interject.
"For what? What have I done?"
"He told you to stop," Jim says, sounding a little slurry.
"I'm an American citizen. I can say whatever I want to," Reese whines. Poor Reese. She thinks she's on a movie set and the cop is the gaffer! "He does not have jurisdiction over the ground that he speaks on," she continues, making no sense.
"All you should have done is let me get arrested," insists Jim, sounding like an excellent agent. "You wouldn't listen to what he said. And you kept getting out of the car."
"I threatened him and put him in a position where he feels vulnerable? Come on, honey. Come on!"
"You just turned it really bad," sighs Jim.
Well, okay, so it's not Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? but it's pretty hee-lair, eh? Actually, if this is as bad as it gets between these two, they might stay married for a very long time!
