Filed under: FitnessHealthMental HealthScience!

Omega 3 Factz

In fact, in a new study, Omega-3 supplements had little or no real effect on cognitive abilities and those tested didn't perform better on standard tests of mental abilities, memory or verbal fluency than those who took placebos.

Bummer!

But that doesn't mean that's the final word

Reese Witherspoon's Dad Accused Of Bigamy!

reesewitherspoondadbigamy.jpg

It's the real life version of Big Love.

Reese Witherspoon's parents are in some DRAMA.

A newspaper ad recently announced that John Witherspoon and Tricianne Taylor had married on January 14th in Gatlinburg, Tenn., and the reception for the wedding was gonna happen in the summer time.

That doesn't seem likely anymore!

Betty Witherspoon has filed a lawsuit against her husband and wants his new marriage annulled and is also accusing him of bigamy!

PLUS she's filed a restraining order against his new "wife."

Reese's Mom is worried that this new woman is going to try and steal the Witherspoon name and subsequently steal money from her and her husband.

Reese's parents have been separated since 1996.

They ARE still married, though.

Here's what the restraining order said:

"You are hereby enjoined and restrained from using or attempting to use the last name Witherspoon for any purpose."

The lawsuit against the father claims that he cannot be legally married to Tricianne because he is still married to Betty.

For her part Reese's mom said she still loves her husband and isn't actively seeking a divorce. She claims her husband has alcohol abuse problems, hoarding and overspending.

She said:

"When I confronted my husband, he said he didn't know who Tricianne Taylor was and that he did not remember getting married."

Betty Witherspoon said she believes her husband is suffering from early onset dementia.

If that's true then that is so terrible!

Hold on to your seat, folks, because things are about to get into messy and legal - DOMESTIC STYLE.

We'll see what happens, though.
