Gwyneth Paltrow Had a Tummy Ache

January 18th, 2008 // 27 Comments

Gwyneth Paltrow is out of the hospital and it sounds like her medical emergency was of a “gastrointestinal” nature, as reported by her chef friend, Mario Batali. After being mysteriously hospitalized at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital early this week, Batali reports that the actress is now doing “great,” and that her medical issue was “straightened out,” in contrast to reports that her visit was related to complications with a pregnancy.

It’s a good thing too, since she’s got plans to head out to Spain to film her PBS cooking show. This is one of those cases where I wonder if it simply wasn’t really horrible diarrhea and, being famous, Gwyneth was just too embarrassed to say. Celebrities will admit to drug problems, sleeping with prostitutes, and to being in sex-tapes, but I’ve yet to hear someone cop to diarrhea. I really hope it was diarrhea. Is that wrong?

    Nice braids. She looks like an idiot. No one over the age of 12 should wear braids.

    Thanks, Lisa – now I can’t get the picture of Gwynnie doing the Pepto Bismol Dance out of my head!

    I hate everything about this woman (except her purse). …and where does she get off having a cooking show? She only eats food that doesn’t cast a shadow. She was probably hospitalized because she had a cup of chicken broth and her body rejected it.

    actually, I’m still scarred by Brad Pitt thanking the makers of Kaopectate in his Golden Globes speech in 96. He looked so hot, but I’m pretty sure he was confessing a case of the runs earlier in the evening. :-P I guess there’s not much shame in anything when you’re Brad Pitt.

    OMG Blah! That was too freakin funny!

    If her friend was trying to be vague, couldn’t anorexia fall under the umbrella of “gastrointestinal” nature?
    Gwynny is pretty darn skinny. I had a friend who was suddenly hospitalized for anorexia and she said they had to tube feed her. She seemed thin but fine beforehand, she hid that it was a problem very well.
    Wouldn’t that involve…acting?

    Does anyone know the brand name of her handbag?

    It is all that crap she puts in her stomach that made her sick ~ brown rice, eel, squid.

    She probably needed a whole wing of hospital staff simply to explain to her that yes even her divine body needs food every now and then.

    Too bad they didn’t sew her big, stupid comment making mouth shut whilst she was in there. This woman just irritates the hell out of me.

  18. Zelda F.

    Blah: I read somewhere that she’s sort of doing the Anthony Bourdain thing, traveling around, EATING the food. If you can believe she eats anything. Anyway, she’s not actually cooking. I don’t think she’s that smart….. Or domestic.

    The bag is by Balenciaga it comes in red, blue, yellow and green.

  20. blah

    I would almost watch a show that put her in that position. I’d laugh til I peed watching her pretentious ass trying to choke down food that is other than organic fair trade tofu. She has prided herself on being able to live off of only soy and wheat pectin. She will never leave the bathroom of her Bombay hotel room if she’s forced to eat a goat that’s been killed in front of her.

  21. Ugh

    OMG I’ve laughed my ass off at these posts!

    I totally agree with everyone.

    why all the hate for gwyneth?! are we jealous much that she lives a healthy life and sticks to macrobiotic diet? just because someone is thin does not make them annorexic and just because someone is famous does not make them stupid

    Easy answer, oh confused one.
    Because Gwynnie was a beeatch to loveable Kathy Griffin.
    At least that’s my reason.
    Maybe Gwynnie’s handlers should duct tape her mouth shut in public, eh?

  25. Janepitt

    Why the obligatory jealous comments. Try something new. Gwyneth comes of as a pretentious mega bitch. Who gives a shit about her macrobiotic diet. Like the vast majority of people in this world she will probably die of cancer.

  26. ajiaha

    She looks so much like her mother in these photos.

    TO: lfs723

    Because Gwhiiiineeee and her big stupid mouth have made multiple anti American slams to the foreign press over the years. That’s why. If she wants to be an Ex Pat, fine, but she should keep her ignorance in check and her mouth shut. This country has problems, but we don’t need some barely educated hollwood actress living in her fantasy world making stupid remarks just so she can be popular overseas. Not that I dislike her or anything.
