    Oh look, Reese bought herself an award to get some publicity and make people think she is relevant and has an interesting career. Yeah, it won’t help. She’s still a b*tchy, self centered, phony, mediocore actress who’s career is slipping.

    Kind of silly to give a Renaissance award to her when she hasn’t made a decent film since her Oscar win.

    The Circles Says:

    of Hollywood are saying that this is not Jim Toth’s child. They are also saying that Alexander Payne has come out of hiding and has been around her allot since her pregnancy. So could it be that what Hollywood is saying is true?

    Alexander Payne is an enormous pompous douche bag him and Reese would be a perfect match !! VOM

    Alexander Payne is gay. He’s known Reese for a long time.
    He was with Sandra Oh from Grey’s Anatomy, but they broke up because he was gay. After they broke up he came out.

    I agree that this award was bought and paid for. It’s just some publicity for her. Everyone knows her career is dead. Plus nobody can stand her. Most of the celebrities at her wedding were people who are clients of her husband.
