The Best Of Gwyneth Paltrow And Friends’ GOOP Advice For Ignoring Your Children

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Diary:

Keep your advice relevant!

I have six looks I need to choose for the trip; there’s the radio press conference upon arrival, the red carpet for the Country Strong premier, press interviews, a Sony Music VIP dinner, the red carpet for the CMA’s and the outfit for my performance! We manage to finalize all of the looks for the (very nerve wracking) trip. At 2 pm I head into my office with a nice cup of tea for two hours of phone interviews. I am doing lots of these this week, but today’s session is only two hours. I call country radio station after country radio station speaking to some of the nicest and friendliest DJ’s on the planet. Thursday is the one day of the week that I do not pick my kids up after school.

Kids, ugh!

Kiddies burst through the door and play in my office while I finish up, just drawing and hanging out and of course playing Plants vs Zombies on the iPad, their obsession that I have to limit like crazy!

Make your family sound as creepy as possible, for maximum envy:

At 6:30 pm we all get in the bath and it’s hair washing night for the kids (every other night—never popular). Then back downstairs to check on cupcakes and have a visit from an auntie and uncle. The kids indulge in a super sugary cupcake before bed but I don’t feel too bad because they had a brown rice stir fry for dinner with baked sweet potato on the side. It’s all about balance!

    You guys make it sound like mother cannot have a life outside of her children. Just because it doesn’t fit with YOUR idea of being a mother, doesn’t make them BAD mothers. Gwyn took a lot of time off, and didn’t work very much for many years after her children were born. You are being ridiculously hard on some of these celebrities!

    Any celebrity parent who successfully protects her children from the vicious and disgusting parasitism of paparazzi and gossip tabloid journalism is doing a damn good job.

    Drew Grant’s priorities are seriously warped for thinking that keeping ones kids out of the limelight is a sign of bad parenting.
    Seriously Drew, pull your head out of your ass and think before writing such pointless twaddle. You’re a douchebag.

    I like GOOP. Their tips are actually totally helpful. Although some of us are not as materially blessed as they are does not mean that their advice is not worthy. Give me a break. Gwyneth also seems like a cool chick.
