I know what you’re thinking: Why can’t they stop hating on Gwyneth Paltrow? Well, we would also like to do that! We would love it if she didn’t keep saying things that were completely out-of-touch, creating stupid products, wearing bad outfits to advertise said stupid products, wearing bad outfits in general and, of course, creepily marketing children’s bikinis in gross, “sexy” ways. This is not the case, however, as Chelsea Handler just recounted an incident wherein Paltrow recommended to an upset woman that, rather than confront her husband about her feelings, she just give him oral sex instead.
While on Chelsea Lately, Paltrow and Handler begin to discuss how the former is not quite as “perfect” as the latter once assumed. Handler then recalls a dinner party that both were at when another guest discussed being deeply frustrated with her husband. Though the friend wanted to go home and express her anger (they don’t say why she was angry, so I can’t speak to whether or not it was justifiable), Paltrow instead advised otherwise.
“A girl was asking advice, and [Paltrow]’s an amazing advice giver. And one of our friend’s was like, ‘You know, I got in a big fight with my husband and I just wanted to scream and yell.’ And [Paltrow] was like, ‘Whatever you’re doing, do the opposite. If you feel angry, go at him with love and you give him a blowjob.'”
Uh, while I don’t think you should necessarily scream and yell when you are upset with somebody, I certainly don’t believe that you should give oral sex rather than voicing your thoughts. Shockingly, you can discuss your feelings without yelling and without going down on somebody. And it’s really stupid to advise somebody to only do the latter when (again, shock!) sex doesn’t automatically fix problems.
