Gwyneth Paltrow Will Not Judge You For Cheating

“I am a great romantic — but I also think you can be a romantic and a realist. Life is complicated and long and I know people that I respect and admire and look up to who have had extra-marital affairs. It’s like we’re flawed — we’re human beings and sometimes you make choices that other people are going to judge. That’s their problem but I really think that the more I live my life the more I learn not to judge people for what they do. I think we’re all trying our best but life is complicated.”

– Gwyneth Paltrow shares her feelings on infidelity — and not judging those who stray — with The Daily Telegraph. I cannot help but wonder if Gwynnie is playing the “my friend” game here and the people she “respects and admires and looks up to” are actually herself and hubby Chris Martin. Not to start rumors or anything. I actually mostly agree with the sentiments she expresses above, although I don’t think it’s necessarily judgmental to say that infidelity sucks and cheating is a crappy thing to do.

Girl Talk: On Being “That Young Guy With Cancer’s Wife”

When I married Jason on August 7, 2010, the same day as his 29th birthday, we didn’t feel that marriage would change our relationship dramatically. After five years of dating, we were true partners-in-crime who had traveled the world together, raised two small dogs as though they were our children, and enjoyed daily debriefing sessions involving beers and work dramas we called “Power Hours.” Classifying us as genuine best friends would be an understatement. However, when Jason was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on April 2, 2011, our world and our relationship was flipped upside-down. Everything changed — and I don’t just mean the obvious cancer hurdle. Striving to feel like a normal newlywed couple was, and still is, the most difficult challenge. Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston Sucks On A Lollipop, Must Be Pregnant

Well, it’s official. The Jennifer Aniston Womb Watch has begun. Jen and her boyfriend, Justin Theroux, who never met a vintage punk rock T-shirt he didn’t like, were spotted going to the doctor this week. When they left, Jen was sucking on a lollipop. Clearly, she must be with child. Why? According to x17Online.com, “It’s common practice in gynecology offices to give candy to a woman having blood work early in her first trimester so when a nurse draws blood, the patient’s blood sugar level is high enough that she doesn’t pass out.” Mind you, it’s not actually confirmed that she went to see a gyno. She could have been at the podiatrist and stopped to buy a sucker at the gift shop. Ugh. Anyway, one thing I did learn — the next time I want to trick a dude into wondering if I’m pregnant, I’m going to dramatically pull out a Blow Pop every time I see him. Bwahahaha!
