Angelina Jolie Reminds Hollywood Moms (Ahem, Gwyneth) That They Really Don’t Have It That Bad

Angelina Reminds Hollywood Moms They Really Don't Have It That Bad

“I’m not a single mom with two jobs trying to get by every day. I have much more support than most people, most women in this world. And I have the financial means to have a home and health care and food. When I feel I’m doing too much, I do less, if I can. And that’s why I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job. I can take time when my family needs it. I actually feel that women in my position, when we have all at our disposal to help us, shouldn’t complain. Consider all the people who really struggle and don’t have the financial means, don’t have the support, and many people are single raising children. That’s hard.”

–Angelina Jolie tells The New York Daily News that she’s fed up with super rich, famous moms with armies of nannies and piles of money complaining about how hard their lives are. You can almost hear her muttering “cough … GWYNETH … cough” between the lines here, can’t you? If you’ll recall, a few months ago, Gwynnie made some truly cringe-worthy comments about how her life as a famous, uber rich mom was actually harder than if she was a normal working mom with an office job. Leave it to Angelina to drop a truth bomb on GOOP’s distorted view of reality. [Us Weekly]

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

Gwyneth Mommie Dearest

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’s approval! They would earn or lose points based on whether they ate deli meat or soft cheese during pregnancy, whether they had a homebirth or a highly medicalized one, whether they breastfed their kids, used cloth diapers, only fed organic, stayed home or went back to work.

It would be exhausting to watch, and truth be told, there wouldn’t be any winners. This is exactly how I feel most days as I watch the “mommy wars” being trotted out as a way for women to pit themselves against other women in morning news segments, blog headlines and magazine covers. I still shudder when picturing TIME‘s infamous “Are You Mom Enough?” cover.

So it should surprise exactly no one that when I read Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest GOOP newsletter with her own thoughts on the “mommy wars,” I couldn’t help but cringe. Keep reading »

Rumor: Chris Martin Cheated On Gwyneth Paltrow With Kate Hudson

  • Take it with a grain of salt, but the blind item site BlindGossip claims that Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t the only one who has been unfaithful in Hollywood lately: Chris Martin has supposedly been romancing Kate Hudson, who is engaged to Matt Bellamy from the band Muse, which has caused a rift in her friendship with Gwyn. All of their kids are friends, too, which makes this story even more complicated. Supposedly Chris and Gwyneth have been privately split up for awhile, but this is a new twist on why.

12 Tips For “Consciously Uncoupling” Like Gwyneth Paltrow And Chris Martin

Since learning about Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s decision to “consciously uncouple,” we’ve been trying to unpack the term in all its PC glory. It seems that similar to other areas of her life, Gwyneth will be superior when it comes to divorce. So, far we haven’t seen one inkling of sadness, ire or admission that either party was having an affair. Ahem.

According to an anonymous source who spilled the beans to the Daily Mail, even the couple’s decision to get divorced was beyond reproach. Allegedly, the couple agreed to split while vacationing on island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas and instead of exchanging bitter words, they exchanged gifts. The source claims that Chris gave Gwyneth a painting of a bird in flight by Mila Fürstová to “mark the new stage in their lives.” Keep reading »

Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin Announce They’ve Decided To “Consciously Uncouple” (AKA Break Up)

It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.

Love,

Gwyneth & Chris

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin just announced in a joint statement that they have decided to separate — “consciously uncouple” — after 10 years of marriage. While I have been known to snark on Gwyneth quite a bit — and was admittedly oh-so-tempted by the phrase “consciously uncouple,” because it is just so GOOP — I appreciate the thoughtfulness of this statement and admire their mutual dedication to their children and respect for each other. (But let’s get real — whose side are Bey and Jay taking?) [GOOP via Defamer]
