The Seven Year Itch

A spokesperson for Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe released this statement yesterday: "We are saddened to announce that Reese & Ryan have decided to formally separate. They remain committed to their family and we ask that you please respect their privacy and the safety of their children at this time." The rumor is that Ryan had an affair with a waitress while filming in Vancouver, Canada. Reese has hired divorce lawyer Robert Kaufman who represented Jennifer Aniston in her divorce. Reese and Ryan met at her 21st birthday party that he went to for free beer. They married when she was five months pregnant with their daughter Ava who is now 7. They also have a 3-year-old son named Deacon. We expect she'll be on Oprah again within the next few months where she will give absolutely no details about the split except that maybe the paparazzi had something to do with it.
