Gwyneth Paltrow proves true to everything I’ve always predicted concerning her. One of my predictions has always been that she will forever attempt to recoup her investment in grifter trainer Tracy Anderson. She invested scads of money in Tracy including opening a number of gyms. This back story can be found in the archives here but mostly at the archival site Sickittenish.com where you can see for yourself if the predictions rang true or not (they did).
Suspecting that Paltrow is throwing in a last ditch effort on the trainer because her sale commissions on her GOOP website are not actually bringing in financial rewards. Merchantdizing online is a tricky business. The one aspect of Gwyneth that I’ve always marveled about is that she thinks everything is so easy. Her introduction to Hollywood was easy but anything else in life requires work. Work she’s not willing to put in. Since I have it on good authority that GOOP isn’t racking up the sales I knew it was just a matter of time for her desperate flailing to become evident. Evidence is in this latest REDBOOK interview and pairing back up with the fraud Tracy.
The best part? Her HYPOCRITICAL interview. This is what happens when you don’t seek higher education and round out your character with interests and hobbies.
“The morning of my 40th birthday, my children and husband woke me up with hugs and gifts, and I proceeded to have the best week of my life. I feel really happy being 40, now that I’m on the other side of it. There was definitely some uncomfortable anticipation. But I’m amazed at what I’ve been able to accomplish, that I’ve maintained my important relationships and have such incredible women friends, that I have two funny, beautiful children who can give me a real life. In a way, I feel like no one should make big life decisions until 40. It’s when it all starts to settle and become clear.”
Don’t make any major life decisions before 40? Come on! It’s great advice if you substitute 30 for 40. Major life decisions entail deciding to get married, have children, buy a house and focus on a career. She’s done all of that. Leave it to me to translate what she’s really putting forth here without even knowing it: She regrets all of her life decisions made before her 40th birthday. That includes not getting an education and her shotgun marriage to Chris Martin. If she could wave a magic wand and go back to the days before becoming pregnant with daughter Apple, she would. A life full of regret mostly because she believes she could have done so much better for herself. All is not lost though. She could very well have another forty years on this earth. That’s a whole ‘nother lifetime loaded with challenges and adventures. Problem for her is, she’s behind the eight ball because she’s never put the work in during her second and third decades. She’ll forever be scrambling to catch up to the rest of us. By the time she reaches her sixties, there will be great people emerging of the same age who will inspire others. She’s best off to pull out now. It is mind blowing how she still clings to all of that PR propaganda from her twenties. Like her mother before her, she’ll never be top tier. She’s not educated or beautiful. When in doubt, just make life comparisons to Meryl Streep or even Martha Stewart. Paltrow attempting to make us believe she’s in this league is laughable and the fodder of online writers. She is the gift that keeps on giving. Happy Holidays to all.
