SIBLING SCANDAL FOR REESE

Here's an odd art-imitates-life parallel for Reese Witherspoon: In Sweet Home Alabama, she plays a celeb who's embarrassed by her trashy roots. Cut to her real-life hometown of Nashville, Tenn., where the New York Post reports that brother John Witherspoon has been charged with sexual assault. The 29-year-old allegedly snuck into a female neighbor's home, began molesting her as she lay asleep on her couch, then fled the scene. He has also been pulled over for drunk driving this year.
