Channing Tatum steals 3/4 of his daughter’s Reeses: monster?


Divorcing couple Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan have told us repeatedly that they will continue to co-parent their five-year-old daughter, Everly. To their credit, they’ve backed up that claim. They even went trick-or-treating together with Everly. For the occasion, Jenna dressed as Cleopatra and Channing as the Genie from Aladdin. But all was not roses and sunshine on this family outing. While filming what was supposed to become a treasured childhood memory, Channing revealed another side of his personality – he’s a Reese’s stealer.

You ain’t never had a friend like me! Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan reunited on Halloween while trick-or-treating with their 5-year-old daughter, Everly.

The Magic Mike actor, 38, documented the family outing on his Instagram Stories on Wednesday, October 31. At one point, he even snapped a selfie with the Resident star, 37, while they were dressed up as Genie from Aladdin and Cleopatra, respectively.

Throughout the night, Tatum repeatedly reminded Everly to get as many Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups as possible — but he made the request rather selfishly.

“Give me all of your Reese’s! I can smell ‘em on you,” he told his daughter and her friends in one video. “You guys have four collective Reese’s Cups. So I get three, and you get one.”

The actor later tried to peek inside Everly’s goody bag to conduct a “Reese’s check.” When she pulled away from him, he laughed and said, “Don’t be such a stingy Reese’s hog!”

Everly suddenly had to use the bathroom while trick-or-treating, so Dewan asked one neighbor whether her daughter could go inside their home for a minute.

“I made Jenna do it because I was afraid that they wouldn’t be so receptive to me,” Tatum said in another video before pointing out that his face was covered with the oversize Genie mask.

Both Jenna and Channing are dating other people. It’s nice that they can put aside their differences so Everly and her friends can enjoy themselves. Jenna said after the split was announced that she and Channing would always be friends and if this is any indication of that, I think it rings true.

Now, about the candy stealing – sorry, you won’t hear any indictment on my part. Trick-or-treat bounty is one of the reasons I had kids. And I come from a long line of candy-claimers. My mother would remind us every year that any and all Sugar Daddys were to be delivered to her immediately upon our return, like some sort of suburban sacrifice to ensure a bountiful Christmas haul. So I applaud Channing’s tactics, reminding his candy-gathering minions that he’s aware of what they’ve reaped and what he expects from it. Plus, he’s wise to pursue it, because clearly Everly intends to hold out on him. He captured her on film LYING about her Reeses acquisitions:

I’m telling you, children cannot be trusted when it comes to turning over their Halloween candy. Check under their pillows – you’ll find a mummified Snickers they were keeping from you, I promise. Everly had to have known this was coming, anyway. Remember Channing pretended he ate all her candy last year. At the time, we thought it was a prank but maybe it was just Channing’s true nature.

    My dad called that the candy tax growing up. “Just like Uncle Sam, I get my 10% of your candy. Plan ahead.”

    He claims it was teaching us about taxes and planning-I think he just wanted Kit Kat’s.

    • Sayrah says:

      I explained taxes to my kids this way on Wednesday hahaha

    • Veronica S. says:

      My parents called it the candy tax, too. Cost of the neighborhood kid escort service, so to speak. With my friend’s kids, I claim the Twix, and she claims the Reeses. Her husband is not so picky. Fortunately, her kids are too small to really notice. At their age, they’re just excited to get ten pieces, much less an entire bag. (We’re all candied out by the third day, anyway – I took half of it into work today.)

  2. LoonyTunes says:

    This write up 😂. Love it. And what’s going on with Channing’s goods in that costume?

  3. Rebecca says:

    I ate all the reese’s before Halloween.

  4. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Candy is payment for taking their loud and crazy bodies all over the neighborhood trick-or-treating! And Santa purposefully leaves extra in stockings for Mom and Dad’s tireless devotion. 😉

    We used to have to hide our halloween candy in multi-layered disguises. Ie: in a pillowcase, in a box, underneath stuffed animals in our closets to avoid my sugar fiend of a dad taking it. He’d never take the LAST of it or anything, but if you were saving something specific you hid it if you didn’t want to take the risk of him snagging it first. And he and mom went through all of it the night we got it to make sure it was ‘safe’ though I’m 100% sure they were snacking while we were in bed.

    The only trick or treaters we get are my niece and nephew. And the nephew is only 4.5 months old, so it’s a 200% increase from last year haha. I kind of wish we had a bunch though. People bring their kids through the office that I work in though – so I at least get to see some cute costumes.

    Yup, I used to go through my kid’s haul and hunt for the Reese’s. I justified my behavior by telling myself that she had a ton of other goodies and wouldn’t miss the Reese’s. Now she’s 24 and a vegan. And I stupidly bought Reese’s to hand out for Halloween along with another bag of candy I don’t like. Guess how many Reese’s actually got distributed to the kids.

  7. Chef Grace says:

    I was candy inspector for my two.
    I got one of each type of candy for my fee.

  8. GreenBunny says:

    Two of my 3 kids are allergic to peanuts, so I don’t even feel guilty about taking their Reese’s and Snicker’s. But now that they are getting older and not just taking candy blindly, we had a lot less Reese’s. But a lot of people make up little bags of candy and those had a ton of mini snickers, so I still got my fix.

  9. Purplehazeforever says:

    I’d only eat Reese’s, Kit Kat’s, Hershey, Nestle Crunch Bars & M&Ms. Problem was my mom ate them, too. So I would eat them on the way home lol. Problem was people gave out lollipops, jolly ranchers, bubble gum, Tootsie rolls, Snickers, milky ways…stuff I’d discard. Occasionally I’d get potato chips or apples…lol.

  10. skipper says:

    Let’s be honest, kids don’t need that much candy. I’m sure she made out like a bandit in their neighborhood so let Channing have his cut. lol!

    • dlc says:

      I know, right? I’m sure she had an insane amount of candy! They are trick or treating in rich neighborhoods for sure!

  11. Malificent says:

    There are two kinds of parents. The ones who eat the Reese”s and the ones who lie about eating the Reese’s.

  12. Wellsie says:

    Props to Jenna for wearing a sensible costume while taking her kids out. I know I sound like I’m made of dust, but I’m really sick of the idea that women must ALWAYS be on display.

  13. Abby says:

    I was surprised by his IG story when I heard Jenna in the background. Good for them for co-parenting civilly. Everly always seems so loved by them.

    I didn’t trick or treat growing up but I have no shame about eating my kids’ candy. They don’t need that much, and anyway, I like candy that they don’t!

  14. Nicole76705 says:

    I informed both of mine that all the 3 musketeers were mine. Youngest disagreed and when I tried to tell him that the lady put them in his bucket just for me (she really did), he responded with “I don’t see your name on them.” Touche……To which I promptly replied “You can’t read!!!! You wouldn’t know if it had my name on it or not!” That’s parenting in it’s finest form :D

  15. ValiantlyVarnished says:

    I am literally LOLing while reading this. I like Channing’s style. He’s not being sneaky about it. He’s telling her to pony up. My Mom would eat my candy and then lie and say she didn’t do it. But I always knew she did. I kept a mental inventory of ALL my goodies.

  16. Cranberry says:

    All’s fair in love and Reeses. lol. Gotta pay your dues kid. If you’re not big enough to defend your Reeses then you’re at the mercy of others. haha. :)

    Any body tried the white chocolate Reeses? They’re AWESOME !
    Kid would have gotten nothing back from me if it was WCR!
    Damn good, highly recommend.

  17. Maddie says:

    Everly is lucky they didn’t come across a Reece’s candy converter machine, otherwise all of her candy would have been gone.

  18. MommaDee says:

    Am I the only one that takes 90% of their kids candy away? Now I feel awful. But they honestly don’t need all that candy. I usually bring the candy to work the next day so that my coworkers can enjoy it cause I don’t eat candy but this year I felt particularly guilty because my kids worked so hard on their trick or treating endeavors this year🙈

  19. Thaisajs says:

    I have a hard and fast rule about not eating my kid’s Halloween candy. My mom used to do it to me when I was little and it really bothered me. I just buy more candy than I know we’ll hand out so I don’t feel the temptation to raid her candy bucket.

  20. Christina Taylor says:

    This is the one time of the year I’m not as bummed out that my daughter has a peanut and egg allergy:) I always make sure to give her a little extra candy then
