Reese, Jake, Jim, and January 4th
It was January 4th yesterday.
Reese Witherspoon, her engagement ring, and her fiancé Jim Toth hit up the Laker game, seated next to Jeffrey Katzenberg. They were cheerful and engaging and she clapped and smiled a lot and waved that diamond around like you’re supposed to when you receive a diamond that size. And it’s just a fun thing to do I guess when your ex-boyfriend f-cks up with country’s angel.
Curiously, on January 4th, 2009, Reese was also at the Laker game. On the exact same day, in the exact same seats, different date: Jake Gyllenhaal. They were cheerful and engaging and she clapped and they kissed, very publicly.
There are many people – I am one of them – who believe in the power of dates and coincidences and energies and sh-t. My mother the Squawking Chicken especially. Only she’s wise enough to know what all of it actually means. It definitely means something.
