Reese Witherspoon is on the cover of April's Harper's Bazaar, looking very pretty and happy, professing her love for her kids and her new clothes. In short, the gal looks like she's handling her breakup with Ryan Phillippe (who sort of denied he had an affair with Abbie Cornish) that led to the split about as well as one could.

She's spent some time going back to her Southern roots as well as possibly maybe dating Jake Gyllenhaal sort of. Or not. In any case, she's a Gossip favorite, and we're happy to share excerpts from her Harper's interview:

Absolutely disgusted with her marriage and with Hollywood in general, Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon has decided it's time to start over - in Charleston, S.C., according to the New York Post's Liz Smith.

Reese believes firmly in her Southern roots, and has has taken her children and relocated to Charleston, S.C. Both kids are said to already be in public school there. Ryan Phillippe, meanwhile, is said to have relocated to Abbe Cornish's pants. Sorry, that was rough.

Unfortunately for Star magazine, "baby, baby, baby" was simply a piece of dialgue from Walk the Line. In reality, Reese Witherspoon has no such news on a third child. The Oscar winner filed a lawsuit against the publication Wednesday, arguing that a "phony" June 26 cover story headlined "Reese & Juliaâ€"Baby #3″ was a "callous effort to boost the tabloid's sagging sales," according to court documents obtained by E! Online.

Witherspoon is claiming she's suffered significant distress and damage to her good name because of the story. Star, of course, couldn't be reached for comment.
