The Soapbox: We Can’t Address Poverty Until We Listen To People Who Are Living It

I’ve gotten a lot of feedback about last Friday’s article on Gwyneth Paltrow and the Food Bank Challenge. From that feedback I’ve learned a lot of useful things, like that the $29-per-week allocation is supposed to be for three people; you aren’t allowed to buy prepared food on SNAP in Illinois, Ohio, and I assume…

Gwyneth Paltrow Wants You To Eat Some “Sex Bark”

In this week's installment of her newsletter GOOP, Darling Gwyneth would like you to try a thing called "Sex Bark." No, it's not a weird noise you make during sex, it is a chocolate bark. A chocolate bark that will cost you at least $93 to make, and which contains a thing called "Sex Dust,"…

And The Average Cost Of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Holiday Gift Guide Items Is…

Gwyneth Paltrow's 2014 holiday gift guide is out, and it's about as ridiculous as you'd expect. E! and ETOnline both added up the total cost of all the items on it (not including those listed as "price upon request"), and E! came up with $109,384 while ET came up with $107,309.49. By Newser's count, there…

Blake Lively Launched Her GOOP Knockoff Site

Blake Lively has launched Preserve, her lifestyle/shopping/GOOP knockoff web site, and I am trying really hard not to laugh at the editor's letter or the $180 votive candle holder she's selling. [Preserve via Celebitchy] On last night's episode of "The Bachelorette: Men Tell All," JP and Ashley from a past season of the show found out…

Uh oh, Shailene Woodley and Alicia Silverstone, we've got another contender for the celeb with the weirdest hippie-dippie ideas! Shailene Woodley's vagina may be thriving on all that Vitamin-D and Alicia Silverstone's got kiss-feeding down, but is their water as evolved as Gwyneth Paltrow's? Doubt it! In the latest issue of GOOP, Gwyneth writes: I am…

Mommie Dearest: Gwyneth Paltrow & GOOP Wade Into The “Mommy Wars”

With the way the media shoves the "mommy wars" down our throats, I’m amazed that there isn’t already a reality show based on that concept out there. (Reality TV producers, this is NOT an invitation to prove me wrong). You could have a handful of women battling it out for their child's love! Or society’…

Martha Stewart Gives Gwyneth Paltrow A Very Half-Hearted Stamp Of Approval

"I haven't eaten at Gwyneth's house, and I have never seen how she lives. But, if she's authentic, all the better – and I certainly hope she is. She really wants to be part of the lifestyle business. She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle. She wants to be a lifestyle…

Blake Lively And Her New Company Want To Teach You How To “Curate” Your Life

Ah, yes, just what the Internet needs: one more myopic blonde celebrity so enamored of her perfect, precious life that she's deluded into genuinely believing that she can help you, yes, you, you darling humble peon, attain a similar perfect, precious, curated life.

Gather Round Children, And Let Gwyneth Paltrow School You On Punk

Many people don't know this, but there was a time, in between filming "Shakespeare in Love" and "Sliding Doors," that patron saint of GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow, was in a punk band.

Gwyneth Paltrow Blasted For Selling Little Girls’ Bikinis Over GOOP

To tell you the truth, I don't really give a shit that Gwyneth Paltrow is selling bikinis for little girls through her website, GOOP. Gwyneth Paltrow is also the person who suggested your spring wardrobe could use a $1,615 black skirt. She's not really the arbiter of sensibility or good taste, no matter how many…

Style Stealer: 3 Of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Spring Outfits For GOOP On A Budget

One of the regular features in Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP newsletter is her seasonal wardrobe recommendations, sold via Net-A-Porter. The looks are generally pretty cute, as GP does have great style, but they are also majorly, majorly pricey. So, because I think it is ridiculous to spend $1,615 on a goddamn black skirt, I decided to steal some…

Apparently Gwyneth Paltrow Has Seven Sides And “Rock” Is One Of Them

Here are just a few of the many reasons I wake up every day pissed off that I'm not Margot Tenenbaum: child prodigy, award-winning author and playwright, perfect bob and the face to pull it off, mink coat, wooden finger, cold, haughty aloofness, perfect eyeliner application, marriage to Raleigh St. Clair, verboten romance with hot…

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Super Easy Hangover Cure

"Start in a hot, dry room and then move into an even warmer steam room. Then splash yourself with cold water (or even dunk in cold pool or under a cold shower). Follow it with a full body scrubdown, which is typically followed by a massage. At the end you’ll be sent to a cool…

Gwyneth Paltrow Has A Message For Her Haters

"Any time you do anything with any degree of sincerity, people make fun of you. That's totally fine. I don't care. I don't read any of it. My thing with Goop has always been, if you don't like it, then don't log onto it. There were a couple of times when I thought, 'I'm just…
