the most important photograph from the Golden Globes

Ryan Seacrest, by way of his tumblr blog, says that this was the most important photograph from the Golden Globes. Whatever would the caption read?

I just hope that Taylor Swift managed to escape before Jennifer Lawrence caught her.

Vanity Fair shelves Gwyneth Paltrow story

In other news somethings breaking on the Gwyneth Paltrow vs Vanity Fair story that’s been dragging on for about a year now. If you’ll recall VF had planned a big take down expose on Paltrow. Garydon Carter had one of his assistant editors lined up to write the piece. He said she was a pretty good writer and the thing was a go – or words to that effect. Then everything fizzled!

It fizzled apparently because Paltrow circled the wagons. She got in touch with her many A List friends like Courtney Love and told them that if VF comes around asking questions then just kindly tell ’em to fuck off. I think that she also recommended they avoid any future involvement with the hi profile mag, even regarding non Paltrow related projects! If Courtney Love’s response was any indication then when Gwyn talks people listen ’cause Courtz said that VF could fuck right off – or words to that effect. Since Paltorw numbers such luminaries as JayZ & Beyonce among her close personal friends, her ‘interdiction’ can count for a lot. Besides JayZ is rumored to be a 32 degree mason and lodge brother to Pres Barack Obama – so you don’t wanna piss this guy off! So the whole story stalled.

It looks like the story has gone from cold to off. There are even rumors that Vanity Fair has made nice to Paltrow. However some details of the story are leaking out. Nothing outrageous – just confirmation that there was a story, that it was gonna be an expose, and that it covered some unflattering details about Paltrow’s life. However there wasn’t anything released that would make raise your eyebrows. So the moral of the story is that you don’t mess with Pepper Potts! Now here’s a brief video from Hollyscoop TV (think of them as a kinder gentler TMZ, or merely another Entertainment Tonite) on the story that never was!

Gwyneth Paltrow must be one very powerful lady, so let me just take this moment to say “Wondertrash was behind you all along ma’am!” Never hurts to be a little bit nice to people with that much juice!

Miley Cyrus on W? What the Buck!

Now some one who’s mag cover did come out is Miley Cyrus on W. That’s because Miley is always more sizzle than fizzle. You’ll recall that she had that attack of twerking at that awards show. Miley also gives an interview with some personal commentary. It’s kind of a “what’s it like to be controversial?”: type of thing. Now one guy who’s privy to the details and ready to give you the gist of it is gossip commentator Michael “What the Buck?” Buckley. He’s also got something things to say, like Jimmy Fallon taking over the Tonite Show from Jay Leno who took it over from Conan O Brien, who took it over from Jay Leno – man I miss Johnny Carson! I’m sure we remember that painful period in the history of late nite TV so let’s try to put the unpleasantness behind us.

One good Buck deserves another – so now some Meatloaf!

So wish Jimmy the best of luck in his new gig. He’s a clever funny talented guy. TV talk can be a tough racket too. Just like pop music. Speaking of which what happens when classic talk and classics rock collide? Just watch this episode of Larry King Now in which the king of talk interviews Richard ‘Buck’ Aday. Now this Buck is better known to the most of the world as Meatloaf. I say most of the world because when Larry was first met him and was told he was being taken out for Meatloaf, he asked whether it was kosher or not!

Now don’t worry cause Larry got filled in on the whole Meatloaf phenomenon. Plus he got to ask Big Buck a lot of other questions like “How’d you wind up called Meatloaf?” If you’d like to hear the King grill some Meatloaf then just sit back and watch for the next approx 30 mins. Bon Appetite!

Stirring Up Trouble – Cookbook Controversy Continues

Who would’ve thought that a cook book could be controversial, let alone bring together uptight white chicks in a bonding moment. Well that’s exactly what Gwyneth Paltrow‘s It’s All Good has done. Paltrow penned the book to share her low carb gluten free lifestyle with the world. She also wanted to share the insights and experience that she gained along the way. Stuff like her family experiencing ‘specific hunger’ when they swear off of the pizza crust and potato chips. Specific hunger is a term for “cravings”. It would’ve saved a lot of misunderstanding if Paltrow had just said “cravings”, because now the idea that she’s starving out her family on some kooky lifestyle kick has raised hackles. Now this is the part where uptight white chick bonding comes in because it’s Elizebeth Hasselbeck to the rescue.

uptight white chicks stick together, just like gluten

Hasselbeck has been getting some press lately too. That’s because no one knows whether she’s in or out over at the View. Official word is that she’s in. The grapevine is still saying she’s out. Either way she recently made her opinions known when the Gwyneth gluten cook book got mentioned over at the View. Liz took the opportunity to come charging to Paltrow’s defense. Hasselbeck says that she completely gets the whole anti gluten thing. In fact to hear Hasselbeck talk you’d think that gluten is one of the great scourges of our society. In fairness I believe that gluten intolerance has been linked to many mental conditions like depression, bi polar, and even more series stuff, such as an irritant in schizophrenia. It’s also been linked to auto immune conditions like arthritis. The link to gluten hasn’t been conclusive proven though.

Elizabeth says – “I do believe that there is a growing number of people with gluten intolerance, not just celiac disease, like myself,” said Hasslebeck, who’s authored two bestselling gluten-free cookbooks. “I do think it causes inflammation in the body, whether you are celiac or gluten intolerant or not.”

People with celiac disease cannot tolerate gluten, a protein found most often in wheat, rye and barley. Gluten is a like a kind of glue, or binding agent, that holds the grains together after they’ve been ground up and baked. Most people don’t have a problem with it. However it throws some people for a loop. Celiac Disease is the recognized form of gluten intolerance, but it’s believed to effect people in milder, or unrecognized forms. There’s a lot of anecdotal evidence of people who claim that chronic health conditions improved once they got rid of carbs in their diet. Hasselbeck’s own experiences seems to bear this out – “I’ve been on the diet for 10 years,” she explained. “I’ve never felt better.”

Not that Liz is fanatically anti carb or anything. She’s willing to keep an open mind. For instance –  Hasselbeck continued, “I do believe that there are quality carbs that can replace gluten, like a quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, rice, corn, all those things . . . They’re alternative grains that provide a great amount of nutrition. You need quality carbs. Kids need quality carbohydrates to run.”

Besides Hasselbeck has another reason for backing Paltrow. They’re both moms so they’ve got each others’ back. Well Hasselbeck has Paltrow’s back anyway. Says Liz –  “She could do whatever the heck she wants“, says Hasselbeck, and continues,  “She’s a mom, those are her kids, do what you want.” Naturally ‘do what you want’ means ‘with in reason’. For instance that wouldn’t include subjecting your kids to radical scientific experimentation. It usually means things like curfews and dress codes. Radical lifestyle choices like fad diets, home schooling, or choosing to raise em religious is a grey area. No one likes those things but they’re not sure what to do about it. However let’s please try to keep this in perspective. It’s not like Paltrow has banned vaccines for her kids or anything. She’s not a regular Alex Jones caller, yet. When the kids are restricted to Tangy Tangerine food supplements then you can call CPS.

BTW this whole gluten free thing seems to be catching on. Aspiring actress and short list candidate for CW‘s Amazon Alexandra Daddario took a bite out of a gluten free pancake recently, and her face says it all.

Gwyneth Paltrow cooks up a storm

Gwyneth Paltrow get’s an unexpected shock

Gwyneth Paltrow has a new cook book out and the inspiration was a stroke that later turned out to be merely a panic attack. She had just finished serving lunch in her spacious garden when, and to use her words “not to be overly dramatic“, she thought that she was gonna die. That’s because she came over light headed, lost the ability to form thoughts, and developed a searing headache. Now that happens to some of us several times daily, & sometimes they’re even called hangovers  However it can be a bit of a shock if you’re not used to it.

suddenly one sunny day

Anyway back to Gwyneth. Just because you don’t wanna be melodramatic is no reason not to blow something completely out of proportion. So Gwyneth decided that she was having some kind of near death experience, or in her own words – “One sunny afternoon in London, in the spring of 2011, I thought — without sounding overly dramatic — that I was going to die. I had just served lunch in the garden at home. I had a vague feeling that I was going to faint, and I wasn’t forming thoughts correctly. I got a searing pain in my head, I couldn’t speak, and I felt as if I couldn’t breathe. I thought I was having a stroke.

Gwyneth survives but doesn’t get over it

This tale does have a happy ending. Gwen goes to the doctor, who explains to her that she’s having a panic attack. This is something that sometimes happens to high strung, anxious people. They usually survive, even if they never actually get over it. There’s not much you can do about the condition, apart from tiresome self improvement seminars that encourage neurotic people to focus even more closely on themselves. Just stick to the basics: smoke plenty of good weed, get enough rest, have glass of wine with dinner, and watch what you eat. That gives yous something to do while nature sorts things out.

When life hands you a lemon make GOOP – because anyone can make lemonade!

The trouble with giving anxious or restless people something to do while time sorts things out is that sometimes they can get a little carried away. Not that I’m accusing Paltrow of making a religion out of her new experience and consequent insights. She hasn’t sashayed down off of the mountain top with the Gospel According to Gwyneth neatly engraved on twin elegantly mono graphed marble tablets or anything. She simply sat down and wrote a new cook book called It’s All Good. So give her credit for keeping it in proportion. However she did write her book GOOP style. That means getting a little carried away and going overboard.

Taking the starch out of Gwyneth Paltrow

In this case GOOP means that Gwyneth gets kind of particular and hyper finicky. For instance she’s got a long list of don’t. She brags that you won’t find a slice of bread or a chicken egg any where in her house. It ain’t because she and hubby Chris Martin are hard up or anything either. Bread is full of gluten. As Gwyneth has discovered gluten can do a real number on your metabolism & nervous system. Since Gwyneth’s nervous system is on over drive most days it doesn’t need any help in that department. Plus she also discovered that Chris and the kids are gluten intolerant too.So the residence is now a starch free zone.

So when you rule out everything else, that leaves you with food for thought?

health conscious types fear gluten

Paltrow backs up her health regime too. Says Gwyn “Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across . . . seems to concur that (gluten) is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it. Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we’re left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs.” Sounds like bad news. On the bright side if she’d been Al Gore and those nutritionists, doctors, and other assorted health conscious people (like other students in Paltrow’s yoga classes) who seemed to concur had been eco scientists, then this thing would be An Inconvenient Truth. So be thankful that it’s merely a cook book that strongly discourages pasta, bread, rice, sugar, dairy & chicken eggs among other things, and not some agenda for rearranging the world.

Remember to keep checking in @ Wondertrash, where you always know what’s cookin’, ’cause the menu is disturbingly familiar!


A few days ago it was unofficially announced that Elizabeth Hasselbeck was allegedly leaving the View after about 17 years on the job. Liz joined about a year after the View started up. She came in straight out of Survivor to replace Lisa Ling. Nothing was official but the rumour was that the marketing guys figured that Liz was too unpopular. Her right wing politics was alienating large portions of the audience. So it was tie for her to go and explore other possibilities like possibly talk radio.

Well an official announcement has come down from on high by Barbara Walters herself, in addition to View spokesperson. The official word is that Liz is a valued member of the team, and that she has along term contract. in other words Hasselbeck ain’t going anywhere. Which only goes to show that you have to be careful about what you read on these gossip web sites.

Perhaps View producers have been reading some of the Internet messages posted about Hasselbeck, which indicate that she was more popular and well liked than believed. Also posters found her right wing views less objectionable than people with in the entertainment industry bubble believed. The general consensus being that she brought some semblance of balance to a stacked deck. Not that anyone would accuse the View of any kind of political bias. It’s just that Hasselbeck was probably the only person her co hosts knew of, besides Angie Harmon, who was voting for Mitt Romney. Let’s just say that sometimes the View is more of an echo chamber. Alternative opinions are essential to maintaining credibility, unless you’re preaching to the choir. Then credibility ain’t as important as consensus. Can we at least agree on that?

So things at the View are pretty much as they were, except for Joy Behar. That leaves Television Without Pity to sum the situation up with their online poll – who should have left the View with Joy Behar. There was one overwhelming favorite that won by a healthy 50% and it wasn’t Hasselbeck either. Just take a look at those current results posted below!

Elizabeth did come in second with a respectable 31 percent, right ahead of all of the above.However apathy was the clear winner! The poll is still on going so you to have a chance to register your indifference by heading over to TWP. BTW as far as I know Brooke Shields is still on – unless they’ve bagged Sarah Palin. That broad is ratings dynamite!

Gossip Roundup

Is GOOP too good to be produced by any one woman?

Gwenyth Paltrow is something of a Renaissance woman: actress, country singer, icon, and lifestyle expert. That’s why it’s so insulting when a news paper like the New York Times claims that she resorts to ghost writers! The book in question is “My Father’s Daughter” and in an article called “I was a cook book ghost writer” the Times makes reference to Julia Turshen, whom they claim ghosted the book of Paltrow. They further go on to state that Turshen is penning a second book for the actress. Paltrow had the following frosty response for the Times by way of Twitter – “Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself.

Gisele Bundchen made waves recently by spoiling the Superbowl with some bitchy comments about her husband’s inability to throw and catch he ball at the same time. Apparently she felt that Tom Brady‘s personal limitation were some how the other players’ fault! You can’t expect fashion models to understand foot ball. For one thing they’re much to giddy from diet pills and lack of food to actually follow the action.

Bundchen’s boobs meet their match!

You can expect Bunders to make a stir though. Like the time she claimed that all women should be forced by international law to breast feed their children – just like she did with her fabulous million dollar Brazilian boobs which are not only decorative but useful! Woman were outraged probably because Bunders comments touched some insecure sore spot in woman not fortunate enough to be stacked supermodels. Well no matter how decorative and useful Bundchen’s expensive breasts may be, even they have their limits. Her’s Gisele bottle feeding a baby that’s too much even for her boobs!

It’s been an event filled period since Bunders ruined the Superbowl – Whitney Houston died, Angelina Jolie made an ass of herself at the Oscars, and the Kony guy went nuts and got naked in public. So it’s safe for Bunders to leave the house again. That’s the thing about celebrity scandal – just keep your mouth shut and lay low – it’ll blow over as soon as some one else does something worse and that shouldn’t take too long!
