It seems I can’t turn on the computer without reading another snarky albeit funny blog post about the Paltrow/Martin “conscious uncoupling” split that hit the news earlier this week.
I won’t bore you with my own drawn out based-on-nothing-but-what-I-read-in-the-tabloids opinion on the matter, but I will say I think everyone should leave the chick alone! Just because she’s gorgeous and famous and loaded and has a rock star husband (Correction: Estranged husband; Soon-to-be-ex-husband; Or whatever title the media is labeling him with) she’s still a human being. Obviously her life is in some sort of turmoil regardless of how glamourous the rest of us non-celebrity folks seem to think it is under her otherwise normal circumstances.
The Grass Is Greener On The Other Side… Or Is It?
At the end of the day, the grass isn’t always greener. A friend of mine once told me, “The grass is only greener where you water it.” A different friend of mine once told me, “The grass is always greener on the other side…’til you get there and realize it’s all just…grass!” Think about that. It’s true.
Famous or not, rich or poor, gorgeous or heinous, Oscar Winner or the Biggest Loser… the fact remains that everyone has issues and drama and goes through tough times. How they chose to deal with their mishegas is entirely up to them and quite frankly, it’s none of our business. Who are any of us to judge anyway?
If it will make you feel better, you can poke fun at her blog, Goop all day long and rag on the merchandise she sells which costs a small fortune and is purchased solely by people in her parallel universe. I guess you can also react sarcastically and make comments about how difficult it must be when you’re called away to Wisconsin to film a movie while us commoners are only called upon to pick up our sick kids from the school nurse. However, I bet I’d be pretty mizzzz freezing my ass off in Wisconsin if I had to show up on set at the crack of dawn too. Just saying.
C’mon…..Let’s leave the girl alone. She’s just like the rest of us if you strip her down to the bare bones. Oh, and since we’re on the topic of her bare bones…. she probably should cool it with the vegetarian shit and grab an In-N-Out Burger on occasion, right? No, but really… Let’s just leave the poor (I mean, rich) girl alone.
We should focus on our own problems and not worry so much about hers. Do you honestly even care? Do you honestly even think Gwyneth cares if you care?
Newsflash: She Doesn’t!
Personally, I don’t have time to scrutinize her relationship or the lack thereof for much longer because I’m too busy trying to cope with many of my own daily debacles. As déclassé as my problems may be, they are still my problems! In particular, no matter how many loads of laundry I do, I will NEVER understand what happens to the goddamn missing socks. Never. It absolutely blows my mind.
Pretty soon I may have to come to the conclusion to consciously uncouple myself from all the mismatched socks and start afresh. It may be difficult at first, but in the end I know I will be honoring my truth. I wonder if Gwyneth has any new pairs for sale on her website.
JUST TO LET YOU KNOW… Sarcasm aside, I don’t wish conscious or unconscious uncoupling on anyone. I can only imagine how painful it must be for her children and that’s not something I would ever make fun of. Ironically, it was only just a few short weeks ago that I quoted Gwen’s very own parents on their recipe for a successful marriage in my blog titled, 10 Years, 2 Kids, 0 Pets And A Partridge And A Pear Tree. I can’t help but to think how weird it is that now her martial breakup is headline news. I have to assume she missed my post! What a shame. I wish she had taken the time to read it. Maybe it could have helped to save her marriage. Silver Unpolished could have helped to save her marriage! I mean, you never know. After all, crazier things have happened!
