Reese Witherspoon is beside herself with excitement over the forthcoming Cruel Intentions television spin-off.
The 40-year-old actress portrayed the character Annette Hargrove in the hit 1999 teen drama about rich kids in New York City involved in a sensational sex scandal. It also featured her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe and good friend Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Gellar is returning to portray sinful Kathryn Merteuil in the upcoming TV adaptation and Witherspoon can't wait to see the drama unfold on the small screen.
"I'm excited!" Witherspoon gushed to ET Online. "Sarah's a good friend of mine, and our kids are in preschool together, so I'm really excited. It's a lot of the original people involved, so yeah, I'll be watching."

Last week Sarah Michelle Gellar announced she’d be reprising her role as Kathryn Merteuil in NBC's Cruel Intentions sequel pilot. Now the 38-year-old actress is really starting to get into character, as she’s switched her trademark blonde locks for Kathryn’s dark-brown do.
Sarah Michelle Gellar is returning to her roots for the upcoming Cruel Intentions TV series.

Finally, the sequel we deserve.
Sarah Michelle Gellar has finally been confirmed to star in the pilot of the upcoming series of 'Cruel Intentions', reprising her role from the original movie. Plus, she's also being tipped as a cast regular if the show continues, and we are very sure it will.
Sarah Michelle Gellar returns to the small screen
We have to confess, when we saw her name in the headlines we hoped that it would be a new series of 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' or something. Alas, no. But it's the next best thing. Disappointed as we were in the shambles that were 'Cruel Intentions 2' and 'Cruel Intentions 3', the idea of NBC picking up the movie for a full series was not especially inviting. But now that it's confirmed that Gellar will be reprising her role from the original movie, we couldn't be more excited.
NBC is reported to have picked up a follow-up series to the classic 1999 movie.
Fans of the late nineties favourite Cruel Intentions will be delighted to learn that a TV sequel, focussed on the child of Annette Hargrove and Sebastian Valmont, is currently in the works.
According to Deadline on Wednesday (October 21st), NBC is picking up a series revolving around Bash Casey, the son of the characters played by Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, the latter of which died at the end of the original movie. It would seem that Annette was pregnant at that point, and the storyline of the mooted series will pick up on the life of the now-16 year old boy.

Sarah Michelle Gellar's Representative Has Slammed U.s. Tabloid Editors For Reporting The Actress And Her Husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. Are Heading For A Divorce.
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer star has found herself at the centre of split speculation in the new issue of Star magazine, in an article which suggests the actors, who celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary last month (Sep15), "are struggling to keep their marriage alive" amid rumours Prinze, Jr. has become increasingly lazy since undergoing spinal surgery last year (14).
An unnamed source told Star, "With Freddie holding on tight to his new role as stay-at-home-dad, friends worry where these two are headed... They've been walking on thin ice for a while now, and it seems like Sarah's ready to throw in the towel."
However, Gellar's spokesperson claims the story was vehemently denied when Star editors reached out for a comment, but they ran the unfounded speculation anyway and failed to include their official statement.

She tells People.com, "We went to the supermarket to get a mix and were really surprised that there was no better-for-you baking option.
