Reese and Ryan Reunited ... for Kids

2/1/2007 2:53 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe made their first public appearance together, exactly three months after their October 30 split -- which was first reported by TMZ. The estranged couple accompanied daughter Ava to her school play in Brentwood, and brought younger son Deacon along as well.

Sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ that despite this joint appearance, there is "no way" that the couple is getting back together, but the relationship is "civil" now. We're also told that there was plenty of bad blood at the time they separated, caused in large part by the revelation that another woman appears to have been involved with Ryan, an alleged dalliance that infuriated Reese. Still, it seems that the two actors, married for seven years, are attempting a rapprochement of sorts, at least for their children.

In the couple's divorce petition, obtained by TMZ, Witherspoon asked the court for joint legal custody of the children, and for primary physical custody. She also asked the court to block any attempt by Phillippe to get spousal support.

People are not treating this racist.., Farhaw, & going lighter on them because of color, oh, & you think it's okay that an all black jury let OJ get away with murder, insane, but anyways, Ryan may have cheated due to his ego with his wife's career being more successful. Financially, if they truly loved each other, who made more money would not matter, it would have to be about one's ego. These people will be judged based on what they've done, not on their color. Frankly, it's disillusioning such a seemingly happy couple would give up so easily but in all actuality, it's really their business and I wish them the best for the sake of the children.

Why does everything on here have to turn racial?? Reece and Ryan are making things work for their kids... they are good parents! If people would quit bashing other creeds and colors maybe we could live in a world different than our grandparents and parents did.

They have always made such an adorable couple, but looks aren't everything and you don't alway know what is going on behind closed doors. I hope they can always be civil with and to each other for the sake of the children.

Why is there one person who ALWAYS brings up race when race isn't even a factor?! I'm white and have had many friends over the years of all ethnicities; one isn't any better than the other. We all have things that bug us about the other races and vice versa. However, the one thing that I have noticed in life is that whenever the 'race card' is played, it's generally because whoever uses it doesn't have a leg to stand on and that's the only thing that they can think of in order to start an argument and possibly have a point in that argument. It's so damn overplayed. We are in the 21st century, it's time to move on. I can't help but wonder, if race is such an issue for you, Farrah, are you a fan of the NAACP and other such organizations aimed towards making 'blacks' lives' better? I'm sure you probably are, but doesn't it seem weird that after fighting to end segregation and fighting for your rights, 'you all' seem to be creating these organizations that segregate you yet again from all the other races here in America. If you're for equality and for trying to stop racism, then why don't you look at yourself and tell me why I, a white girl, can't join. Or why an Asian American can't join. You bitch and moan about race, and yet it's YOU making race the issue... get over yourself!!!!!!
