And As A Bonus You Will Get A Free Gwyneth Paltrow DVD


Apparently that whole gym thing that Gwyneth Paltrow is doing with her trainer Tracey Anderson might not be doing that great. It hasn't even opened yet, but the cold calls to strangers have begun. According to the NY Post, the gym staff have been calling anyone and everyone to try and get them to come in and sign up.

What happened to all those stories a few months ago where the entire world had already joined the club and there was a waiting list and even Gwyneth's mom had drank the Kool Aid and said she hoped she would be able to get a membership. Now, it is just like any other health club in America, although with this one you do get outrageous monthly fees in the $400 range and get to pay almost $5000 just for the privilege of joining, which no one appears to want to do.

On the plus side, you would get to watch Gwyneth Paltrow work out. As an added bonus, I heard she will personally critique or criticize all the customers at the gym and tell them what they are doing wrong with their lives and how she can make everything perfect for them just like her life is perfect. She will be offering seminars on how she got to be so perfect and of course her ultra exclusive premium newsletter which, unlike the free one, has a horoscope personally prepared by Gwyneth, her meat grilling tips, and comes with a free copy of Shallow Hal.

If it's open 24 hours a day, that might not be a bad deal - cheaper than an apartment, right? How big of a locker do you get?

Thank you for this Enty. I saw it earlier today and was very much looking forward to your thoughts on this ridiculousness.

I shy away from anything celebrity endorsed. I don't feel the need to line the pockets of a celeb, like Gwynnie, just because their name is attached.

If I were a gym, Gwyneth Paltrow would probably be one of the last people I would ask to endorse me. "Come work out with us - achieve the slender physique of a 12-year old boy!"

the older she gets, the more delusional she becomes. it's kind of funny, actually.

CAN'T STAND HER...LOVE MOM

MommaBear said...

That girl really does live in her own little world. She seems completely oblivious to the financial implosion affecting the rest of us. She makes it so easy to dislike her....

Another Bimbot I can't stand lol.

I'm surprised more people haven't looked into Tracey Anderson's background. She's from Indiana where she scammed a former business partner out of loads of cash.

Amy said...

There is absolutely nothing appealing about her. She actually looks like she's having trouble holding that 3-pound weight!

Hardly the picture of health. Blech!

Obviously we are all losers and we just don't "get it".

Ms.Leigh said...

WHY ON EARTH WOULD ANYONE WANT TO LOOK LIKE HER?!!! and PAY for it? ROFL!

seriously??! they don't call her fish sticks for nothing. she's so full of it.

Judi said...

Harriet and everyone, exactly!! She's incapable of even standing up straight. Who on earth would want to work their rears off in order to get HER body? She has a pretty face and looks good in clothes. That's it.
