Gwyneth, you know I love you, but I am not buying the whole "being a housewife is wonderful" routine unless you can tell me that you do not have a nanny, cook, personal trainer, etc., at you beck and call.

I'm impressed -- if even Courtney Love finds him vulgar, Davis must be lower than fungus...

Yes Gwyneth, being a housewife is amazing if you have a nanny, a housekeeper, a landscaper, a personal chief, a personal assistant, a fitness trainer, stylist and make-up artist on call, a cute rock-star husband, houses in London, New York, and Los Angeles, and can take a 2-4 wks vacation any time to any place in the world, famous friends, designer clothes and shoes, and never have to save for anything.

I guess being a housewife is pretty amazing.

I think Gwynneth calling herself a "housewife" is stretching it (who the heck wants to be called that!!) But I don't think she meant to be offensive. I agree that taking care of kids is the hardest job and I'm sure she did the right thing and her heart is in the right place.
On the other hand, TomKat freak me out and I wonder when Katie is going to go bonkers and shave her head like you-know-who!!
And her dress was very, very ugly.

Liz warned us that the Beckhams would try reality TV, and she warned THEM not to do it . . .

Gwyneth dear, since you love Europeans so much, the correct term is lady of the manor. You make your wishes known of how you would like things to run, look, etc. and others do the dirty work making your wishes real.

Gee, the Beckhams have been in the States all of 5 minutes and already have their own reality show. But, will their scientologists bodyguards allow the cameramen to get close?

Does anyone over here really care about the Beckhams? Anyone besides the LA Scientology recruiters that is.

What did Paris expect from someone who's greatest insult to a female is "firecrotch?"

I have seen lots of preTom photos of Katie by herself, she even did that VF spread. unless Tom was standing in the wings. What's up with her not being able to take one on her own?

This is what Bobby gets for not thinking ahead. Always ensure that your meal ticket pays for the essentials in advance, that way when you get kicked to the curb you don't have to worry about things like child support for at least a year. That's more than enough time to find another host.

I used to feel sorry for Katie, but, well, she made her decision. But still...that's just so creepy!

WORD to all you Gwynnie commenters. I would love to be a house wife with so many perks.

Stepford Katie needs an intervention ... from Mimi Rogers, preferably ... is the rest of the world the only ones who realize her husband is a total wacko? Oh well, she only has 9 or so more years to go, Tom'll trade her in for a younger Stepford before they've been married 10 years and have to abide by community-property laws.

Could the Beckhams BE more egotistical? And if they are on TV, does that mean Victoria will actually have to look lifelike? How will the crew manage that?

Am thinking that Katie is contractually obligated to include Tom in all Oscar-related photo ops. Oh wait; it's a LOVE match. Right.

Posted by: IndyAnna | February 27, 2007 1:26 PM | Report abuse

Maybe Katie sticks so close to Tom because she once upon a time fantasized about being married to Bobby Brown. And figures mind-control has it all over a beat down.

Posted by: STick | February 27, 2007 1:32 PM | Report abuse

There are plenty of photos of Katie sans Tom a the Oscars

Oh Bobby, I'm shocked that after all this time you did not prepare for the day when Whitney sobers up.

What were you doing during your previous jailed sentence?

The world is on fire and you have the temerity to waste online real estate on it?

This column and your salary are a waste of bandwidth and resources.

Nothing personal, just the obvious facts.

Why anyone does hang out with a rich man's sleazy unemployable son: Brandon Davis.

"This column and your salary are a waste of bandwidth and resources."

One wonders if "Reality" is posting from work and wasting his/her employers' resources, or from home and wasting his/her own resources.

And is posting twice a double negative that somehow reverses the waste?

Celebritology is not a waste of "Resources" (whatever that means).
Why? Because I need it!!!
How is it any different than Starbucks?

Lovely Gweneth, she walks on water in all of her lovliness. Of course, she adores being a housewife. She adores all conditions of her life. She's a heavenly sprite and we are lucky to get a glimpse of her.

Yah, OK, Gwennie loves being a housewife. But I still was unreasonably annoyed with her fiddling with her extensions during her presenting duties Sunday night. Fake hair is bad enough but dammit quit fingering it!

Posted by: soso | February 27, 2007 4:46 PM | Report abuse

Why do celebs always have to overexclaim?

i.e. Gwenyth could have said that being a housewife was nice, satisfying, fullfilling, whatever, but "Amazing"? Why would it be amazing? millions of people do the same thing. If you were say, a two headed housewife, or a flying housewife that would be amazing. Now go back to school Gwenyth and lean how to use your words correctly to fit the subject of your sentance.
