Who Wants to Look At Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP?
Besides other overpriveleged WASP mommies?

Celebrity mom Gwyneth Paltrow tries her hand at an Oprah-esque media empire with the launch of her new website, GOOP. The "lifestyle" site promotes such good ideas as "cook a meal for someone you love" and "go to a city you've never been to before."
Fine. Let's review the problems here:


• No mother can realistically be expected to listen to a woman who named her daughter Apple.

• Lifestyle advice should be taken with a grain of salt when the recommendations include just dropping everything to go to a different city (country).

• It's not enough to tell people to cook something, you have to tell them what to cook. If left to their own devices, most American women will end up defrosting a Lean Cuisine and serving it on a first date. This is a proven fact.

• It's not like Gwyneth Paltrow has some immense amount of life experience to share with the world; this is the same woman who in her own words, doesn't know what it feels like to do a movie that isn't an exercise in masturbation. Apparently the same can be said for her choice in blogging initiatives.

I don't think she could have picked a more terrible name.

Here's a tip for GP: practice self-awareness. It does wonders!

I LOVE IT WHEN RICH CELEBS TELL US TO DROP EVERYTHING AND JUST TRAVEL, GO DISCOVER THE WORLD, GET SOME CULTURE ! RECENTLY MATT DAMON SAID THE SAME THING. WELL THE NEXT VACTION US (THE OTHER HALF) CAN AFFORD, WE WOULD HAVE TO SAVE AT LEAST 2 YEARS AND WE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO SPLURGE ON A VACATION EVEN THEN. ITS TRUE, CELEBS REALLY DO LIVE IN THEIR OWN BUBBLE !!!!

Here's some advice from me to you, Gwinnie,

1. Take a butcher knife.

2. Walk into traffic.

3. Repeat until dead.

I think all that wine she drinks is making her delusional. First, the unmakeup makeup job in the Hamptons…now this.

From reading the comments it's seems everybody here is dying from hunger… please, living well can be something as simple as reading a good book, making a nice cup of tea, and spending the afternoon with your loved ones in the park.

Is anybody here so miserably poor that's unable to do that??

P.S. - If you don't like celebs or rich people, why even bother to visit jossip.com?
