Gwyneth Paltrow recently celebrated her son Moses’ 8th birthday, and despite haven’t recently “consciously uncoupled” from husband Chris Martin, she was certainly in the festive spirit and wasn’t going to let that affect Moses’ special day. And yeah, I think it probably goes without saying that it’s pretty sweet to be the kid of a rich parents.
From US Weekly:
“Everything took place in the backyard,” the insider tells Us, adding that the set-up of the driveway included blue ombre-faded balloons spelling out the letters “M-O-S-E-S” beside the number “8.” The guest list included 20 of Moses’ friends and a few of 9-year-old Apple’s pals, too.
“Colorful tables were set up everywhere,” the eyewitness recalls, “and hula hoops and balls for the kids to play with.” Along with the toys, the backyard featured a giant inflatable bounce house in the style of a pirate ship. But that’s not all! A magician was also on-site to entertain the kids.
For lunch, the kids and adults enjoyed delightful treats catered by food trucks, including gourmet hotdog vendor Dogtown Dogs and L.A.’s beloved “chow truck” India Jones. Specialties included hot dogs topped with Fritos and Indian street food like samosas, curry and Indian tacos, the source says.
The party ended at around 4 p.m. in the afternoon. Some of the guests were spotted leaving in airbrushed T-shirts, designed at the party, which included each kid’s name and a design of his or her choice.
Okay, first of all, what 8-year-old has 20 friends? Honestly? That seems insane to me and I’m going to go ahead and assume most of those kids were just the kids of fellow celebrities. On a side note, the blow up house seems awesome and I bet the food was superb. I mean, damn, can’t I get an invite?

From Busines Standard:
Chris Martin reportedly had an affair with a ‘Saturday Night Live’ assistant while he was married to Gwyneth Paltrow, it has been revealed.
According to the staff of NBC, the 37-year-old Coldplay rocker, who appeared on the show in 2011, was spotted openly flirting with a backstage woman at a post show after-party, the New York Post reported.
The article goes on to say that Martin has also denied having an affair with actress Kate Bosworth.
AND rumors abound that Gwyneth was cheating too.
What a mess.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin released the bougiest divorce announcement in history last week, and ol’ Goop has been working hard to keep it classy throughout this ordeal. Turns out, there’s a reason for that: she’s terrified that her reputation will be tarnished if things get ugly.
Sources close to the former couple tell TMZ … this is NOT a separation. They are definitely getting divorced. But both are concerned about serious PR damage if the divorce turns ugly, and they don’t want to open the door to media reports about them straying from the marriage as well as other issues.
The concern … even if the case doesn’t go to trial … any allegation put down in legal docs could end up getting leaked … and both Gwyneth and Chris agree … that’s the worst case scenario for both of them.
We’re told the divorce will be relatively quick and there are no apparent conflicts. They will not fight over money and they won’t fight over custody.
Well, that’s nice. To be honest, I don’t think an ugly divorce benefits anyone – especially not the kids. While Gwyn’s motivation might be self-preservation of her “brand”, I think keeping things cordial is best for everyone, eh?

Gwyneth Paltrow announced her split from Chris Martin less than a week ago via the GOOP website, as you do, and while she may have packed up the kids and hightailed it to the Bahamas to avoid the press, it seems like she’s not really trying all that hard to veer away from discussion of the topic of her “conscious uncoupling”, as she’s released a new statement, of sorts, thanking everybody for giving a shit.
In a “PS” to the intro of the new GOOP newsletter (OF COURSE), she simply wrote:
P.S. CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many. ?
The cluelessness of this woman is hilarious. “CM” – because we’re all on a really close and intimate relationship with them both. The fact that it’s a PS? That she added a heart emoticon? “Deep gratitude”? Lord almighty. When will this nation’s Gwyneth Paltrow nightmare finally be over?
Side note: I read this piece in The Telegraph this morning from a reporter who hated “GP”, if you will, and then interviewed her and thought she was super warm and lovely and now insists that we’ve all got her wrong. I’m gonna pass on that opinion, but it’s worth a read!

Cameron Diaz does NOT seem like friendship material for high strung Gwyneth Paltrow, but apparently they’re pretty close. While many would honour the sacred bonds of friendship by keeping their trap shut when it comes to publicly commenting on one another’s personal life choices, it seems Cameron decided to take the opposite route and offer her thoughts on Gwyneth’s split from husband Chris Martin.
“I think it’s actually a very elevated and conscious [decision] and realized statement — when people like Chris and Gwyneth who really worked hard to be friends and keep the things that are good and work in their relationship, which is being friends and being parents.”
“People go separate ways in other aspects of their life and I think it’s really brave of them to phrase it that way. Leaving as a couple and deciding to stay together as parents and as friends — I think it’s beautiful. I’m so proud of them.”
Cameron actually really cracks me up – this is the same person who thinks you can’t have a relationship without being cheated on or cheating yourself, so of course she’s supportive of this bullshit. She thinks she’s on a whole other plane of human understanding, which… LOL.
As for Gwyn & Chris’s divorce being an “elevated” decision, maybe so. Or maybe they simply couldn’t stand each other anymore and it was literally the only option. People get divorced ALL the time, and there’s no higher level thinking involved. Shit just doesn’t work out sometimes… but I bet Gwyneth subscribes to Cameron’s mode of thinking, anyway – I mean, don’t forget, they called their split announcement “conscious uncoupling”. What kinda bullshit?

Yup, this is a thing we’re doing now. We’re all pretty sure that Gwyneth Paltrow is a serial cheater (girllll, did you HEAR about that Whisper drama?), but now that her split from Chris Martin is official, we’re going to start scouring the archives for any scrap of evidence that might support our theory that ol’ Goopy couldn’t keep it in her pants. It’s sort of sad and more than sort of dumb, but here we are.
The newest ¡Escandalo! is apparently that Gwyn was pictured kissing her ex-boyfriend, Donovan Leitch, at a Dodgers game in broad daylight last September, six months before she split from Chris. Here’s the bullshit in question:
I’m no rocket scientist, but that hardly looks like romance to me. First of all, rich people do weird shit like kissing on the lips when they’re just friends, right? Like, I feel like that’s not a weird thing at all, when it comes to celebrities. Also, Donovan and Gwyneth dated in the early ’90s, before she even got with Brad Pitt, so their history is ancient as shit. Thirdly, he’s not even one of of the names on the list of dudes Gwyn apparently cheated on Chris Martin with, so whatever.
Can we not let this whole thing go? Like, is this what we’re reduced to now – scouring the paparazzi archives to see if we can find her even standing next to another man she might have cheated with? It’s gonna be a long 2014, if that’s the case.
