Gwyneth Paltrow is trying to consciously uncouple from the term "Conscious Uncoupling" -- and we ain't buying it!
So what does Gwyneth Paltrow think of the much mocked term "Conscious Uncoupling," which she coined last year? In an interview with Fast Company
, the often skewered star says she thinks the hubbub around the phrase (that she used to announce her split from Chris Martin in a blog post on her lifestyle site GOOP) is pretty great because, despite being endless mocked, it "touched a nerve." What a Gwyneth Paltrow thing to say!
That's like saying -- I like being made fun of because at least people are talking about me!
But here's our favorite part of the interview: Paltrow is also saying she isn't the one who came up with the now notorious term!
The Oscar winner claims that the the blog title was the work of her editorial director, Elise Loehnen, who took the term "conscious uncoupling" term from a psychologist. Paltrow said, "When I announced that I was separating on the website, [Loehnen] titled the piece 'Conscious Uncoupling' and I had no idea." Oh really?!
Immediately following the carefully worded announcement -- a huge backlash occurred but Paltrow says she appreciated it. The Iron Man 3
star said, "When something like that happens, I think everybody is like, 'Oh, s--t,'" she shared. "I just tell them that I think we are creating interesting discussions."
Interestingly enough we decided to look back at the original Goop post. And looky here: on March 25, 2014 Gwyneth posted the separation news with the following blog post.
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separate, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner. Love, Gwyneth & Chris"
Uhh maybe Gwyneth should reread her own posts or not sign her name to things she didn't write or not pretend she didn't come up with a ridiculous term because judging from that blog post -- she definitely did use the dreaded "consciously uncouple" term in a post that has her name attached to it!

While some may have wondered how long Britney Spears' conservatorship, which is controlled by father Jamie Spears, would be ending, it looks like the end is nowhere close to nigh … Sources are claiming that the conservatorship will continue indefinitely -- so basically for forever.
"There is no reason to break the conservatorship with everything working so well," a source close to Spears told Us Weekly
. "Everything is working perfectly under this arrangement and it will stay that way."
In 2008, Spears' father filed an emergency petition to care for her daughter, who was under a psychiatric medical hold at the time. Under the conservator, Spears has "substantial day-to-day freedom" but is looked after by a team of lawyers, medical personnel and family members, according to TMZ
. Britney is actually under two conservatorships ... one for the person and one for finances, adds the site.
Currently, the "Toxic" singer is headlining a full-time residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas nightly.
We think an indefinite conservatorship sounds pretty intense but really it sounds like what the Spears family is doing for their daughter is working.

Where in the world is Khloe Kardashian?!
The jetsetter was actually in Los Angeles airport when she was spotted looking like cartoon super criminal Carmen Sandiego on Sunday night.
Covered up in a grey trench by Haider Ackermann, oversized fedora, army green jumpsuit by Kardashian Kollection and Balenciaga boots, Khloe arrived at LAX last night after a red-eye flight from Australia.
While in Australia, the big bootied star still managed to keep working on her fit form, which she flaunted on the cover of Complex
magazine last week. While in the Land Down Under, Khloe still hit the gym, posting an Instagram snap of her and her pals hitting some machine. While in Australia, the 31-year-old also talked about her recent 35-pound weight loss while on the radio show Fitzy & Wippa.
"It wasn't that intense here because I'm still jet-lagged, but I make sure that I go [to the gym]. Even [after] 30 minutes you feel, 'Okay, I feel good about myself.' Then if you want to eat something or whatever, then you don't feel as bad. Definitely when I'm in L.A., I go hard, and I've lost like 35 pounds," said the Kardashian.
Well all that hard work is clearly paying off. Khloe looks -- and sounds -- great!

Eminem got candid for a new interview with Men's Journal, in which re revealed that in the peak of his drug addiction back in 2007 -- he weighed 230 pounds -- and it wasn't 230 pounds of muscle!
The "Stan" admitted to the mag that in 2007 his addiction to pills caused him to overdose on Vicodin and Valium -- and also to eat poorly.
"In 2007, I overdosed on pills, and I went into the hospital. I was close to 230 pounds. I'm not sure how I got so big, but I have ideas. The coating on the Vicodin and the Valium I'd been taking for years leaves a hole in your stomach, so to avoid a stomachache, I was constantly eating — and eating badly,"
said Marshall Mathers.
The Grammy winner also admitted that he got into a workout frenzy after putting down the pills and alcohol.
"When I got out of rehab, I needed to lose weight, but I also needed to figure out a way to function sober," he continued. "Unless I was blitzed out of my mind, I had trouble sleeping. So I started running. It gave me a natural endorphin high, but it also helped me sleep, so it was perfect. It's easy to understand how people replace addiction with exercise. One addiction for another but one that's good for them. I got an addict's brain, and when it came to running, I think I got a little carried away. I became a f--king hamster. Seventeen miles a day on a treadmill. I would get up in the morning, and before I went to the studio, I would run eight and a half miles in about an hour. Then I'd come home and run another eight and a half. I started getting OCD about the calories, making sure I burned 2,000 every day. In the end I got down to about 149 pounds. I ran to the point where I started to get injured. All the constant pounding from the running began to tear up my hip flexors."
The rapper told the mag he's tried various forms of workouts but credits his lean physique to boxing, which he began doing a few years ago.

Are they sisters or mother and daughter?! We can't tell!
Model Bella Hadid and her mom Yolanda Foster struck a stunning pose while poolside on Sunday. The gals were clearly chanelling their inner Pam Anderson because those red-suited ladies totally look like Baywatch
The 18-year-old "It" girl posted the pic on her Instagram account, along with the caption, "Mommy n meee day. Home is when I'm with you my [angel]."
Aww -- so sweet!
We're glad to see that the 51-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
soaking up the sun since she's had a scary battle with Lyme disease since 2012. The gorgeous lady has chronicled her battle with the chronic illness -- at times being unable to get out of bed or read. We're happy to see that perhaps Yolanda is on the mend!
Meanwhile, Bella also went public with her budding romance with R&B singer The Weeknd (whose real name is Abel Tesfaye) on Sunday when she posted a photo of her older sister Gigi and the crooner with the caption, "My ❤️s" -- basically confirming the rumored relationship. Bikini pics and cementing her BF/GF status?! What a busy weekend for Bella and The Weeknd!

Kylie Jenner's about to be jailbait no more!
The soon-to-be 18-year-old posted yet another insanely sexy bikini selfie -- because obviously she values what's on the inside.
The 17-year-old showed off her figure in a skimpy black two piece, which she accessorized with gold bangles.
Kylie and recently single sister Kourtney Kardashian decided to take a break from their exhausting life of primping and posing to take a swim on Sunday. The teen captioned the photo, "Kourt & Ky swim session" -- because she's a clever and brilliant mind.
The youngest Jenner turns 18 next Monday and will be toasting being legally able to sleep with her 25-year-old boyfriend by holding a big bash in Montreal, Canada next weekend. We wonder if she will taking advantage of the Canada's drinking age? We think so!

The world is waiting with bated breath for Caitlyn Jenner's love life to unfold ... and it's definitely getting interesting!
On last night's episode of E!'s I Am Cait
, the former Olympian went on a road trip with her new gal pals friends from the transgender community like Jenny Boylan and actress Candis Cayne -- and it turns out that Cait seems to have a crush on the gorgeous Candis.
Caitlyn opened up about her feelings while she was shopping for swimsuits for the upcoming road trip. The 65-year-old said she was trying to get a "sexy" swimsuit for the trip with Candis. While blushing, the reality star said Candis was a "a very attractive lady" and then offered up pics from a recent hang out. "Candis is a beautiful woman," Caitlyn said. "But as far as dating and the future, I have absolutely no idea."
So basically that means Caitlyn is seriously crushing on Candis! We can't blame Cait -- Candis is a total babe! The two had lunch last Wednesday -- so it seems the two had fun together on their little trip!
Meanwhile, we caught Cait with Ronda Kamihira before the reality star had announced her transition. Dating rumors were flying but it turns out Caitlyn went to Ronda to confide in her about the early stages of transitioning.
Well it's too bad that there wasn't something going on with Ronda because we'd love to see Caitlyn in a good relationship after suffering through years with Kris Jenner! We can definitely see a future with Cait and Candis -- as long as the conservative starts changing some of those political views

On Sunday Kim and Kourtney Kardashian went to My Gym in Calabasas, and from Nori to Mason to Reign, a number of Kardashian kiddos were present for the day of activities.
Kim and Kourt have spent quite a bit of time together since Kourt split from baby daddy Scott Disick, but lately the reality star seems to want her man back! On Friday she posted a smiley snapshot with little sister Kendall Jenner, and rumor has it she's dying to have LD come crawling back to her. Interestingly enough, around the same time Scott attended close friend JJ Corsini's wedding and posted a shot of his invitation which read, "When u realize the grass isn't always greener."
Seems like Kourt is majorly missing her man...and vice versa. On top of that, Lord Disick has been spending quite a bit of time with son Mason lately, so perhaps things are looking up?
