Not to get all hypocrite-y, but I actually think GOOPie had some interesting things to say in her speech about Internet trolls targeting women, but then she went and compared celebrities who have to deal with mean internet comments with war veterans. Good lord, woman! Stop making it so easy!
I don’t want to pile on Gywneth this week, but this is too awesome to not share. In response to a recent interview in which GOOPY complained ““It’s much harder for me. I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening,” a working mom posted this open letter.
“Thank God I don’t make millions filming one movie per year” is what I say to myself pretty much every morning as I wait on a windy Metro-North platform, about to begin my 45-minute commute into the city.
Gwyneth and her BFF Tracy Anderson just announced a new web series on AOL (ha!) called The Restart Project, ”inspired by women who have restarted their lives using health and fitness.” It’s supposed to showcase females “healing themselves” and look both at women’s insides and their outsides (but mostly their outsides — those fatty cows!).
She said … “I just had Moses — and I can’t get this weight off. I’ve never had a problem like this in my life.” She had 35 extra pounds on her. Her butt was long and she had outer thigh problems. Gwyneth is lucky because she’s really tall, so she can hide it really well in clothes, but she had significant problem areas. I felt so badly for her, and thought I could really help.

Gwyneth Paltrow has been looking “white hot,” and “going make-up free,” and bringing her kids to her book signing events, but what you haven’t heard about the bare-faced, diet evangelist is how she is treating her fellow writers. Spoiler: Not super well.
Jay McInerney and Christina Oxenburg weren’t too pleased when the 2013 Author’s NIght fundraising event at the East Hampton Library was hijacked by the Goop guru and her entourage. Why is everyone hating on poor Gwyneth? Could it be because of such pretentious statements like this?
I feel a sisterhood emerging around me. I’m less threatening now that I’m 40 and not 26-with-an-Oscar.
