“ … She pointed at my [large] tummy and said, ‘What’s going on here? I love you. Get it together’.”
Comic Ross Matthews dishes on what (and, um, who) gave him the motivation to drop forty pounds.
Some might think it sounds harsh, but boyfriend has actually TURNED HIS LIFE AROUND because of the mighty Gwynnie. He’s lost a crap ton of weight, got into exercising, and started his own garden, where he makes vegetable medleys and smoothies and organic dishes. And seriously, all joking aside, good for him.
It’s amazing what a little Goop in your life can do. Has Gwyneth saved any of YOUR lives, too?

Being a tutor for the offspring of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin would be a pretty sweet gig, if you ask me. The pay is $98,000 a year, you work two to four hours a day, you get a free apartment of your very own in London. Plus, you get to travel around with the ever happy couple on their dime, and can you even imagine all the enlightening talks you could have with Gwyneth in passing? It would be a seriously awesome job.
The only problem? You have to be perfect.
If you can’t teach ancient Greek, Latin, French and Spanish to a five- and seven-year-old and play at least two instruments and know how to sail and play tennis, then keep movin’. I mean, if you didn’t go to Oxford or Cambridge then maybe you’d still have a shot, but seriously, if you don’t know how to sail, then how dare you presume that you can teach a child anything.
Oh, Gwyneth. You can raise your children however you want, of course, but let’s tone down on the the pretentiousness, all right?

If there’s anyone that I love to poke fun at, it’s Justin Bieber Kristen Stewart Lindsay Lohan ok, there’s a lot of people I like to poke fun at, but Gwyneth Paltrow is definitely high on that list. I think it’s because she has such a high opinion of her questionable talent, and people like that always need to be knocked down a few pegs.
Anyway, Gwyneth went and got herself a Twitter account today, and if you read this here blog at all, you know that making fun of celebrities on Twitter is one of my favorite pastimes. As of this moment in time, Gwyneth has only released one precious Tweet out into the world (“This is my first Tweet,” how worthless), but I’m just so, so excited for when she really gets in the swing of things. She’ll Tweet N.W.A. lyrics and pretentious recipes. Ugh, I’m so glad I didn’t get raptured so I could live to see this day.

You may remember that a few months back, on the heels of recording Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You” for Glee, that there was all kinds of buzz about Gwyneth Paltrow getting a record deal and doing the whole music thing in a much more serious way. It turns out, the only thing Gwynnie was serious about was profiting off of her “musical talent” and Atlantic Records, the label that was set to sign her, isn’t willing to cough up the cash to make it happen.
“Atlantic bosses were very interested, and [Atlantic owner] Warner chief Lyor Cohen was very supportive. But then the talks halted and the deal fizzled out. There was a rumor that Paltrow wanted $1 million to sign, but that is a ridiculous figure. Atlantic is still interested in signing her.”
Paltrow’s rep said in a statement: “Atlantic was not the only company pursuing her, and she still has not decided if she wants to record an album. It is still something she is considering.”
Leave it to Gwyneth to score a gold record covering someone else’s song and thinking that warrants her a one million dollar record deal, huh? Sounds like the bratty child of famous parents if you ask me…
She is the worst.

I knew I was going to show this to you guys since yesterday afternoon, because I love you and I want to share both laughter and tears with you. The only thing was, I wasn’t sure what to say. I mean, I didn’t want to simply trash talk Gwyneth, even though it’s so easy. But then, last night, a beautiful miracle occured: my puppy tired herself out after trying to eat my face for two straight hours and went to sleep right as I noticed that Seven was coming on. Remember that movie? That’s Gwyneth Paltrow’s redeeming quality to me. Not even her performance, just that she played the character who indirectly inspired Brad Pitt to cry out “WHAT’S IN THE BOX?” so unforgettably. Notably, that point in the movie is when the puppy decided to wake up, so I wrestled around with her and said “what’s in the box?” over and over, and that got her really excited. So, um, that’s what I like about Gwyneth Paltrow.
But yeah, funny video, right?

See this magazine cover? Little Gwynnie hates it. She claims that she’s got, or had, body issues, and her ‘bony top’ and ‘dumpy bottom’ are what keep her up at night, chewing her perfectly-manicured nails and twiddling her surgically-enhanced thumbs (I’m kidding. I don’t know for sure that she gets her nails manicured professionally).
Gwyn states that she works out for an hour and a half every day, and if she doesn’t feel like working out on vacation, guys? She just DOESN’T DO IT. I’m gonna be honest, though – I’m really skeptical about those who do work out during their vacations, anyway, so that’s a plus-one for Paltrow. I mean, the last thing I want to be doing is working out on vacation. I’d rather much be waking up on the beach in a half-naked, hungover lump than sweating it out in the resort’s gym at 7 in the morning. I mean, fuck. Isn’t that what vacations are for? I have a hard enough time dragging my dead ass to my Zumba and Pilates classes three or four times a week, and those are only an HOUR LONG.
Anyway, even though Gwyn is totally hot and talented and everything, I totally don’t hate her for that. I just don’t like her much because she pretends to be all humble and meek when you just know that she’s not. But hey. I guess that’s just the nature of most beasts, huh?
