Reese Witherspoon: You’re about to find out who I am!

Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth

As much as I loved Legally Blonde, I kinda lost a lot of respect for Reese Witherspoon when she decided to start slut-shaming Kim Kardashian at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, despite the fact that she was at an awards show best known for that one time Sacha Baron Cohen sat his ass in Eminem‘s face. So in a bit of ironic retribution, Reese and her husband got SMASHED last night, drove drunk into oncoming traffic, and when they eventually got pulled over, Reese decided to throw a screaming fit at the police and even tried playing the “DON’T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?” card. TMZ reports …

Reese Witherspoon pulled her celebrity card out while her husband was getting arrested for DUI, telling the officer who ended up busting her, “You’re about to find out who I am.” The arrests went down in Atlanta early Friday morning. Cops say they spotted Reese and her husband Jim Toth’s car — a silver Ford Fusion — weaving in and out of lanes, so they pulled them over. As officers dealt with Jim, Reese allegedly started acting up, telling cops, “Do you know my name?” The officer answered by saying, “No, I don’t need to know your name.” Witherspoon then came back with, “You’re about to find out who I am … You are going to be on national news.”

To paraphrase her own slut-shaming back at her, when I grew up in my town, if you drank yourself to the point where you were nearly double the legal limit then went for a joy ride, you were embarrassed and you tried to never do it again. And if you got pulled over, you didn’t act like a hot diva mess. Hide your face!
