Reese Witherspoon’s Dad Accused Of Bigamy

Reese Witherspoon’s mom files suit against her dad for bigamy, gets restraining order

Reese’s dad is a bigamist

Reese Witherspoon’s father got married again. Sweet, right? Er, not so fast. John Witherspoon still happens to be married to Reese’s mom. Oops. It’s a bit reassuring to know that even celebrities have dysfunctional families, and Betty Witherspoon, suing John for bigamy is quite the doozy.

Sadly, though, this isn’t a sister wives situation happening here. Rather, Betty has filed a petition to have John’s marriage annulled because she fears her husband’s new wife is taking advantage of his mental condition. Insert frowny face here.
In a petition filed in Tennessee court earlier this week (via Radar Online), Betty accuses John of bigamy, claiming he can’t be married to Tricianne Taylor because he is still married to her. According to the papers, the wedding announcement of John, 70, and Taylor, 60, appeared in The Tennessean in April, saying the pair wed on Jan. 14 and are planning a reception this summer in Nashville.

Betty and John have been separated since 1996, but have never officially divorced. In court docs, Reese’s mom described her husband as troubled, and has had issues with alcohol, infidelity, hoarding and overspending. Betty also believes John is suffering from early onset dementia and that his second wife is using it to her advantage. “When I confronted my husband, he said he didn't know who Tricianne Taylor was and that he did not remember getting married,” read the affidavit.

The papers allege that Taylor has attempted to take out loans as Mrs. John Witherspoon, lives in his condo (owned by Reese), had him sign a new will, and drives a vehicle without permission from a family corporation run by Reese. Betty also claims John tried to bring Taylor to their daughter’s wedding last year, but she was refused entry because she wasn’t on the guest list. Betty has tried confronting Taylor, but wifey number two refuses to speak to her. For obvious reasons, Betty fears for John’s safety, as well as the rest of the family.

This is just sad. It’s so easy to take advantage of someone older, who may be suffering from dementia. The fact that he doesn’t even remember marrying this woman makes the situation that much more grim.

 went makeup-free in Bangladesh to promote democracy abroad! When she  showed up for speaking engagements, she donned her glasses and just a hint of lipstick.

Hillary Clinton, No Makeup
Hillary Clinton Without Makeup: Au Naturale!
In an interview with CNN May 8,  Hilary said, “I feel so relieved to be at the stage I’m at in my life right now. Because you know if I want to wear my glasses I’m wearing my glasses. If I want to wear my hair back I’m pulling my hair back. You know at some point it’s just not something that deserves a lot of time and attention. And if others want to worry about it, I let them do the worrying for a change. It doesn’t drive me crazy anymore. It’s just not something I think is important anymore.”
I say bravo, Hilary! Anyone who’s smart enough to run for President of the United States should be able to embrace her natural beauty anytime she wants!

Jamie Lynne Grumet, Breastfeeding Mom On 'TIME Magazine' Cover, Illustrates Attachment Parenting

In the provocative new cover story of its May 21 issue, TIME Magazine taps into a two-decade-long parenting conversation that has boiled over in recent months. Journalist Kate Pickert reports on the rise of attachment parenting, a set of techniques popularized by Dr. William (Bill) Sears in "The Baby Book," his 767-page treatise published in 1992.
In the article, Pickert explores who Sears is and why controversy surrounds his theories -- the biggies are baby-wearing, extended breastfeeding and co-sleeping -- but it's TIME's photographs of real mothers breastfeeding their toddlers that has everyone talking. (Scroll down for reactions on Twitter.)
The cover shows Jamie Lynne Grumet, a slim blonde 26-year-old California mom, breastfeeding her 3-year-old son. TIME photographer Martin Schoeller also shot three other families on the same day.

8 of the World’s Most Expensive Ingredients

Yubari is to melons what Kobe is to beef. The Japanese city has become famous for a particularly tasty melon cultivar that's a cross between two cantaloupe varieties. Known as the Yubari King, this orange-fleshed melon is prized for its juicy sweetness as well as its beautiful proportions. Yubari King melons are often sold in perfectly matched pairs and are a highly ...

The white truffle is found almost exclusively in the forests of northern Italy between the months of September and December. Its unique flavor-nutty, savory, and sweet-is commonly sampled in shavings atop dishes heavy on eggs, butter, and cheese, such as fresh pasta, fonduta (a mixture of melted cheese and wine), or a decadent scrambled-egg breakfast. 

More expensive by weight than any single bird are the nests of the high-flying swiftlet species, who forge these small, cuplike structures from strands of their saliva. The swiftlet nests dissolve in broth to create the gelatinous texture of bird's nest soup, a Chinese delicacy, and are touted as valuable sources of nutrients. Nests were originally foraged from...

Genuine traditional balsamic vinegar, or balsamico tradizionale, is made from late-harvest white Trebbiano grapes that have been boiled down to form a concentrated must. The must is then placed in a series of cloth-covered barrels, allowing water to evaporate over time until the liquid transforms into a thick, dark, sweet, and complex ...

Kopi luwak, or civet coffee, is coffee that has passed through the digestive system of a nocturnal catlike animal called a civet. Wild civets, found predominantly in Asia and Africa, eat the fruit of the coffee plant as part of their natural diet and then excrete the beans in their dung. These same beans, having been fermented by the animal's stomach acids and ...

Jamón Ibérico de bellota refers to the cured leg of a pata negra pig that has been raised free-range in the old-growth oak forests of western Spain. The pigs eat a diet rich in acorns, wild mushrooms, herbs, and grasses, yielding meat that's richly flavored and low in saturated fat. Each ham is cured for a minimum of two years before reaching the market. 

Saffron is derived from a type of crocus that grows most extensively in the Mediterranean and Middle East. Its brightly hued threads are graded for quality by the Switzerland-based International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which ranks the product on a scale from 0 to 250 based on color, fragrance, and taste. 

Sturgeon caviar is the salted eggs, or roe, of the massive sturgeon fish. The world's most expensive caviar comes from the beluga species of sturgeon, but imports of this variety have been banned from the United States since 2005 in order to protect the endangered fish. Farmed osetra sturgeon caviar is currently the highest-end sustainable option on the U.S. ...

Scarlett Johansson
Scarlett Johansson showed off her fab figure in a bejeweled-and-tulle strapless Dolce & Gabbana nude dress. Think her tousled hair was too casual for such a fancy fete?

Beyonce Knowles
Beyonce was one of the very last celebs to arrive, but she was certainly worth the wait! The new mom strutted her stuff in an elaborate Givenchy creation, featuring intricate beading and black-and-purple feathers. What do you think her of her Vegas-like look?
