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.
