In case you missed it, Legally Blonde star Reese Witherspoon has her sights set on becoming the next Oprah Winfrey.

The actress has already launched her own book club, and now her personal brand Hello Sunshine is becoming an on demand TV network.

The star's latest project, Shine On With Reese, invites her celebrity BFFs to open up about their lives on camera, and Pink didn't disappoint.

"It's exhausting. It's the hardest thing I've ever done.”

Witherspoon joined Pink for a day in her life, which apparently involved some high-flying acrobatics that "completely terrified" the actress.

But the pair spent most of the episode bonding over what they have in common: they're both busy moms juggling their families and careers.

Pink has a 7-year-old daughter named Willow and a 1-year-old son named Jameson.

Meanwhile, Witherspoon has three children, including her 18-year-old mini-me Ava.

Pink's children are currently tagging along for every stop on her worldwide Beautiful Trauma tour, and the singer reveals touring as a family "is really tricky."

"It's exhausting. It's the hardest thing I've ever done."

Pink, who has famously battled online mom-shamers several times, also spoke out about facing down online trolls.

"People are so offended now, the second you’re not perfect."

"I cannot tell you the amount of times I’ve been told to ‘Shut up, sit down sweetheart and sing,'" Pink told Witherspoon about her vocal critics.

"Why should I not have an opinion?"

In the end, Pink says that there will always be people trying to tear you down - whether you're a celebrity or just a working mom.

"There are men and women that are going to respect you for it, and say ‘cheers to that,’" she explains.

"There’s another group of men and women who are immediately offended by the fact that you have an opinion, and that you’re willing to share it because they don't share that opinion, and how dare you."

The singer adds that parents are "so offended now, the second you're not perfect."

"I like to be uncomfortable, I like to be vulnerable, to be honest."

A Rare Visit With Dolly

On Witherspoon's first episode of Shine On, she interviewed another music industry mega-star: country legend Dolly Parton.

The 72-year-old singer gave Witherspoon a tour of her impressive closet, and Witherspoon cringed as she knocked rhinestones off one of Parton's famous dresses.

"That happens all the time," the singer assured her.

"I always imagined Dolly's apartment closet opens, and sequins come flying out!" Reese admitted.

The lucky host capped her visit to Parton's home with a special performance of "Coat of Many Colors" in the singer's living room.

Witherspoon has already teased upcoming episodes of Shine On with director Ava DuVernay and country singer Kacey Musgraves, but they'll have a tough time outshining Dolly!
