As most regular visitors have probably noticed, Glamour Reese Witherspoon is under going some changes.
Recently we’ve moved servers. We did have a few complications, but I believe we’re stable once more! Some things I want to mention: The video archive and old gallery are temporarily closed. The old gallery’s files are currently being revamped and integrated into Reese-Pics.com. While the videos are being revamped as well into a new streaming media archive. 😀 I’m very excited about these changes and hope you will stick with us while they are underway! I’ll still post any news/new pictures (Vogue images coming up!) if they appear. But older updates are temporarily halted while I work behind the scenes. I already have new layouts ready too. Be sure to check back!
Last but not least, The Forum was also down this week. We thought we’d lost it for a second but due to hard work from one of our amazing Mods we managed to save it! So be sure to begin posting once more.
PS: If anyone is able to save the two previous videos I posted (ET & Vogue diaries) please send them in. I would like to screencap them. 🙂
The other day I had started Step 1 of the major overhaul to Glamour Reese Witherspoon. I spent some time going through e-mails and sorting all the contributions, affiliate requests and other things that have been piling up. And I got nearly all the pending pictures added as well as transferring all the 2005 & 2006 photoshoots (including some minor additions and replacements) and all the 2006 magazine scans from the old gallery to the new one. Check out everything here. Be sure you register / log in to see everything!
Now on to some site announcements. R-Witherspoon.com, ReeseWitherspoonForum.com and Reese-Pics.com are going to be moving servers and will likely not be updated for a week or two until the move is complete. We will be back and with some big changes very soon. Including: New designs, more gallery transfers & additions, content updates and more. Be sure to stay tuned!
Also, Reese’s Vogue cover will debut sometime next week!
Here are some previews of some of the gallery’s ‘new’/re-added things. (Part I)

I regret to announce that I have decided to leave the staff of Glamour Reese Witherspoon. Before anyone freaks out, let me just say that Mycah will continue the site as it is – GRW is not closing down! It is only me who is stepping down. The site is not going anywhere. Mycah has been without internet connection for a few months but will be back with updates soon.
I have been a fan of Reese for over a decade and running the site since 2005 so this is not a decision that I came to lightly. In fact, I have been thinking about it for a good while. While I still adore Reese Witherspoon and will continue to follow her career, perhaps occasionally report news here and stop by at the forum, I do not have the motivation to continue running the site. I suppose this mainly sources from the fact that Reese has been acting in movies very little lately. While I sincerely respect the fact that she prefers to spend time with her family, out of the spotlight, it is not super-motivating for me to continue running the site. I know that we have Four Christmases to look forward to but I am personally not very much into romcoms and I would prefer to see Reese work on something more substancial and challenging a la Walk the Line.
Who knows, I may very well be back in the future if things change but for now, I feel I am not doing justice on the site when I have so little motivation – and time – to update.
See you around!
This is a totally shameless plug and off-topic to Reese but I wanted post a link to our newest site and this site’s family affiliate site, Amy Adams Fan, dedicated to the amazing Academy Award nominated actress best known for Enchanted and Junebug. She will also replace Reese in Night at the Museum 2. Please come and visit!
Unfortunately I did not get Reese’s appearance on Live with Regis & Kelly this morning. It seems my recorder didn’t even record *shakes fist* so if anyone out there managed to get it please consider sending it in so us fans can see and so we may cap it. So sorry guys :/
As Riikka is heading out of the country for the holidays, and I’m experiencing technical problems and celebrating with my family as well, Glamour Reese Witherspoon will likely not be updated until early January – unless there will be major news to post. We will not be coming online much and will be unable to reply to any emails or approve comments until January.
Happy holidays, Merry Christmas and fabulous New Year 2008 to all of our visitors! We really love working on the site and appreciate your support a lot. We can’t wait to see what 2008 will bring to Reese – and you can be sure that we’ll be here to cover it every step of the way. 😀
Compiled by the Glamour Reese Witherspoon staff. Please feel free to post your own choices here or at the forum. 😉
Both agree: The release of Rendition and all of the great media coverage it got.
Both agree: The delays of Penelope.

Glamour Reese Witherspoon has a new gallery located at Reese-Pics.com. We’ve been working on it for the past few months, re-organizing everything. Many photos have been replaced with better quality versions and all the recent event albums have many new shots! You no longer have to register to view event photos but please do so if you wish to see the photoshoots.
As you may notice, there’s “only” 3606 photos in the gallery at the moment. This is because we have so many images of Reese and I have not had the time to go through anything even near the majority of it. So I’ve mainly just added all the 2007 pictures. The gallery will be updated on a regular basis to catch up on the older photos. Meanwhile, the old gallery will stay up so you can still see all of these photos. 🙂
I wish to thank Filip for the stunning layout and Maria for helping me to code it!
