Being “Blonde” brings in big bucks!

RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned Reese Witherspoon has finalized negotiations to reprise her role as lovable diva Elle Woods in Legally Blonde 3 – for a whopping $12 million!

It’s also a huge relief to her bank account! Combined with the $1.1 million per episode she is earning for her new Apple show, Witherspoon is flourishing financially.

“A big sticking point was Reese’s salary, and now she’s getting a major payday,” the source added.

Maybe Witherspoon finally has enough money to help her 70-year-old mom, Betty Reese, whom Radar revealed is still working, on her feet all day, as a hostess at a local restaurant in Franklin, Tennessee.
