Jennifer Coolidge Jokes About Being Replaced In Legally Blonde 3

Legally Blonde star Jennifer Coolidge jokes about being replaced in the upcoming Legally Blonde 3. Released in 2001, Legally Blonde quickly became a cult classic and helped to solidify Reese Witherspoon as a pop culture icon. Directed by Robert Luketic, Legally Blonde follows Elle Woods (Witherspoon), a perky sorority girl who enrolls at Harvard Law School in an attempt to win back her ex-boyfriend. Learning life lessons and overcoming stereotypes along the way, Elle makes unexpected friends with Paulette (Coolidge) and falls in love with Emmett Richmond (Luke Wilson).

Dominating the box office upon its initial release, Legally Blonde spawned a sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White, & Blonde. Following Elle on her newfound career in Washington, the sequel featured the return of Coolidge as Paulette and appeared to be the final chapter in Elle’s journey. However, in 2018, Witherspoon revealed she would don her character’s pink wardrobe again in Legally Blonde 3. Written by Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor, Legally Blonde 3 has kept major plot details under wraps.

Per People, Coolidge jokes that she’s worried about Paulette being replaced in Legally Blonde 3. Sharing that she hasn’t read the script or heard about anything portraying Paulette in the upcoming sequel, Coolidge admits that she’s eager to appear in the next installment. Speaking on the possibility of Elle’s best friend, Paulette, being replaced, Coolidge said:

You never know this is show business. I don't know. I could be replaced with a roller-skating character or something. I don't know! All I know is Mindy Kaling and her [writing] partner [Dan Goor] just finished the script maybe, but Reese hasn't given me any details. She sends me little DMs and hearts and says, you know, 'Getting geared up,' but I haven't gotten the official, 'We're filming in July' or anything yet.

For now, it remains to be seen who will reprise their roles from the original film, such as Wilson, who has yet to confirm his return as Emmett. Indeed, the supporting cast of Legally Blonde, such as Coolidge as Paulette, helped to turn the film into a success and should be involved in the third film. Two decades after portraying Paulette in Legally Blonde, Coolidge continues to be attached to successful projects. These include Promising Young Women, White Lotus, and Swan Song.

In Legally Blonde, Paulette Bonafante became a staple character. While it's unknown how Kaling and Goor could workshop Paulette into Elle’s current lifestyle, it would be interesting to see the two characters together again. As it stands, Legally Blonde 3 is still expected to release in May of 2022. While the fate of Paulette and Elle’s friendship has yet to be revealed, Legally Blonde 3 has a lot to cover in the life of Elle Woods two decades later.
