Reese Witherspoon recently visited her friend and “This Means War” co-star Chelsea Handler on the set of E!’s “Chelsea Lately” to catch up and talk about her new baby.
Handler told viewers she had a hard time figuring out the sex of her pal’s third child given the baby’s unique moniker.
“She wouldn’t tell me if she was having a boy or a girl,” she said. “But then you had the baby, and you named it Tennessee, and I still couldn’t figure out if it was a boy or a girl.”
“Or just a redneck,” joked Witherspoon, a self-proclaimed Southern girl.
My great grandmother was named Tennessee
How'z 'bout middle name Whiskey?
Sluubup – that's what I'm tookin' bout.
Tennessee Ernie Ford.
It is a fine and proper name.
You'd think some NYC and LA types might have realized this, but apparently they still live on the playground making fun of people's names.
Oh Lord. Grow some skin and don't get offended so easily.
then shut up–
"Tennessee" isn't the worst name I've ever heard. But if its middle name turns out to be "Tuxedo", I think that would be a bit much. (Note: only the over 40 crowd will get the cultural reference in this comment)
Some nice nicknames could be Teni for a girl or just Ten for a boy. At least she didn't call him/her "Bubba" – but I don't know any redneck girl names.
Seriously? Dude, there are lots of redneck girl names. Throw a rock into any trailer park, and you'll hit a Connie, a Tammy, a Brandi, or a Misti. Or any woman whose first name ends in the letter "i."
Hahaha! Good one!
f4xtrafn – "At least she didn't call him/her "Bubba" – but I don't know any redneck girl names."
Bubba is a Redneck girls name.
Tennessee Tuxedo was voiced by the late Don Adams.
'Carport' would be an appropriate middle name.
Why is this news?
it is not news, it is on the entertainment blog where it belongs. why are u here
Short names are best – less typing.
MAYBE THE MIDDLE NAME WILL BE "WALKER"
Arkansas would be a great middle name. . . . .they both are names with vision. . . . .
wow. tennessee??! really? i swear to god, pregnant women should not be allowed to name their babies. poor kid. and she did so well with the first two.
there's some poor kid on toddlers & tiaras whose name is alaska.
Im assuming that I have to watch the video to get the name. I refuse to comply. I guess Ill never know.
"But then you had the baby, and you named it _______". How hard is that to understand?
She named him 'Tennessee'. Which makes me think of the old Bullwinkle cartoon, Tennessee Tuxedo. Her baby needs a dumb walrus pal to follow him around and say, "D'uh, hey Tennessee!"
Y'all argue about it while I decide which color Panties I should wear tomorrow.
May I suggest...none?
Maybe she wants him to grow up to be a playwright and literary giant.
lemme guess- middle name is 'Tuxedo'
"Tennessee Tuxedo, will not fail!"
I like that name very much! Don't understand the 'Redneck' remark, though!What about everyone named 'Virginia' then? – @Marita.
First, Tennessee Williams' name was Thomas and he used Tennessee professionally. Virginia the state was named for Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen probably by Sir Walter Raleigh. So it is a bit weirdly aspirational to name your daughter Virginia- good luck with that.
In today's computer world, that is one long name. Parents really need to think about this because it will cause problems down the line.
really, who cares??????????????????????????
Employer, not owner. Do you live to make your boss happy? Slave.
I agree with all who said..." who cares'.
whut choo talkin bout willis?
