ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel knows what people like and he has brought back those celebrity mean tweets and it should come as no surprise that the video uploaded on November 20, 2014 – a mere two days ago – has gone insanely viral. With over 10 million views, and rising this latest group of performers run the gamut from A listers to “not-so” A listers. Hollywood comedy legend Bob Newhart, Chloe Grace Moretz and Gwyneth Paltrow were among the celebrities who read their nasty tweets out loud and it has to be said, that despite some pretty hurtful comments, this segment is still wildly popular and painfully funny.
18 years of marriage have come unravelled for Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas and this celebrity couple is not “uncoupling” but divorcing, albeit in a “thoughtful and consensual” manner. Outsiders looking in will find no new age and hippified terms to this dissolved relationship, nothing except for two grown ups, spelt mid 50’s adults, who are calling it quits after a long time together.
On Gwyneth Paltrow’s website, goop.com the most read post is the conscious uncoupling article which snubs the yoga teacher who actually coined the phrase and instead relies upon two “experts” who explain the term. However neither of these people, apparently, have anything to do with the process.
It is, admittedly, very hard to not “take the Mickey” – which is Brit-speak for making fun of – out of Gwyneth Paltrow’s new age-ish term for divorce, “consciously uncouple” and it does beg the question, is it possible for one to unconsciously uncouple? If so, how does one keep from committing this “hippy-I’m-okay-you’re-okay” type of amicable separation. However, not wanting to poke too much fun at Paltrow and her soon to be consciously uncoupled former spouse, is anyone that surprised at the choice of term?
It seems that every time Gwyneth Paltrow goes on the Ellen DeGeneres show, they wind up talking about her pubes! Back in April this year, the lovely Paltrow spoke about not wearing underwear to the Iron Man 3 premiere. In her first “pube-lic” conversation with Ellen, she explained what happened.
