I guess John Doe was correct to cut off her head.

Vapid Vapid is an understatement for this woman. ;-)

Oh come on now- she is brilliant and married to an even more brilliant musician. We should all be hanging on every word they have to say! Why, their children are named Apple and Moses, for goodness sake! They inspired me to name mine Sauce and Malone!

OK, I have to admit, I did really like the single "Yellow" when it came out about a decade ago...

Another article that doesn’t really hold up. She isn’t really telling anyone how to live, she is posting info that she has, for those that are interested. Not much more than that.

I hate her show with Mario Batali where they ride around Spain with the NY Slimes food critic in a pair of Benz convertibles wearing funny sunglasses and eating quaint little “authentic” rustic Spanish dishes.

It’s a show that’s overflowing with cliches, and dear Gwyneth is one of them.

Self-absorbed, condescending, and stupid.

They call it the Hollywood trifecta.

Thank God for her advice. I had no idea how to live. I think she deserves a medal or statue or something...

Be careful if you go to goop.com. It’s one of them circa-2001 Flash sites. I clicked on her pretty icons, but nothing works.

"I think the people who are criticizing it or criticizing the idea of it, don't really get it, because if they did, they would like it," Gwyneth told People Wednesday night at a New York City benefit for Bent On Learning, a non-profit organization that provides yoga and meditation classes in NYC public schools.

Seriously. Ponder it. Ruminate over each clause. It's like a diamond, with fascinating new glints and shimmers of perfect vacuousness from every angle.

It could be a haiku, sung to a jingle, written for kazoo.

Mine are going to be Elppa and Sosem, because that’s what I thought of when I considered calling Gwyneth to ask ‘What should I do?’

What should I do Gwyneth?

I clicked the article because I didn’t know who this chick is. Apparently I lead a very sheltered life, or maybe I’m too busy working to put my kids through college, in any event this is a blerb from the article for those as clueless as I about who or what this woman is or what this controversy is about:

The New York Times published an article earlier this week that questioned the site’s relevance and asked, “why is she suddenly on TV giving dieting and fitness tips, backing a gym, writing a cookbook and an online newsletter full of shopping advice, kabbalistic musings and discussion of the Master Cleanse?”

Well, I don’t know the meaning of the term “kabbalistic musings” (they didn’t cover that one in my engineering skool), but I suppose it must be something important or why else would the media report this?

Maybe someday I’ll get the chance to do something as worthwhile, until then well, the first of the month is coming fast better get the mortgage check off to the bank. Don’t want Mr. O to have to up his budget another trillion to cover my debt.

I truly believe that liking the song “Yellow” is some kind of disease or mental affliction. Not to worry! The Doctor is in! You can “Call Me” anytime.

Just a guess but I suspect at 36 ole Gwyneth just realized her hummingbird tattoo on her breast is looking like a pelican now and she is not a happy camper......

It's all true. It's that bad.

But I can't hate her. I grew up on science fiction, and Gwynnie's world is the closest thing to an alternative universe that we're likely to see.

All these people who seem to know how the rest of us should live would be dead inside 60 days if America was without electricity.

I would like one of the A$$holes to live in a disaster area like the residents of said area; or live without power and not hop a flight out of for their "creature comforts". They are detached from reality.

I see from the posted pictures that her vegetarian diet is doing nothing to benefit her previously lovely appearance.

It’s too bad. She’s a talented actress and I liked her work in some of her earlier movies. Sorry to see that she is a fool.

Just another pretty face, just another self-important celeb.

Sad thing is, if her friends are asking HER “where do I go, what do I do?” then they are not exactly the brightest crayons in the box either.....

Her hubby’s big recent hit was supposedly a total rip off of another song and he is abeing sued over it.

>>>>> The fat guy in the orange plastic shoes? <<<<<<

Mario’s orange plastic shoes only add to the overall horribleness of the show. Everything in it - every little detail - seems intended to multiply its larger awfulness.

A $299 video cam, 2 rental Benz convertibles, a cornucopia of “hip” sunglasses, and that inane repetitive tinny soundtrack.

And somewhere amongst all that badness, they eat food.

But you just know that Mario’s packing several bags of Doritos and Cheetos in his luggage.

Well, I am a bit of a foodie, I like to grill and cook. And don’t get me wrong, I admire Mario for his skills and knowledge, but dude needs to take off a few pounds, lose the shorts and get rid of those orange plastic shoes. It’s too juvenile for a grown man.

RULE NUMBER ONE:

Never take advice from anyone who names their kid “Apple”.
