Gwyeth Illin'--Update

OK magazine says that Gwyneth Paltrow is home after being released from Cedars Sinai Hospital in New York, after suffering from a bad case of "looking not well."

Also, the intrepid reporters at New York magazine called up the organic store that rushed over the care package to Gwyneth while she was hospitalized to find out what, exactly, they sent her:
"She's doing our five-day live-food fast," an employee told us. Reaaaaaally, we drawled in our best gumshoe-detective voice. Could that be why she's in the hospital, perhaps? The employee laughed like that was just crazy talk. Right, because whoever heard of anyone getting sick from not eating? "Oh, no," she said. "She's eating salads, there's juices. There's actually quite a bit of food there, it's just all raw and organic."
Hmmm...here's the last photo taken of Flapjacks before she went into the hospital:

She looks like her usual glum, humor-free self, although perhaps a bit more peaked. Her reps are still not revealing the exact nature of her malady, but I bet New York is right that that five-day "live-food fast" might have had something to do with it.

Stay tuned!

See, this is what happens when you deny your body of the essential nutrients it craves -- nutrients that can only be found in steak, deep-fried cheese sticks, Coke, and the entire Hostess line.

Seriously, though, I knew all of that smug "I only eat a raw-food vegan diet" crap would come back to bite her in the ass. I feel sorry for her kids -- not only are both their parents wankers, but they have dipstick names AND will never know the joy to be found through preservatives.

OMG. I know just how Fishsticks feels! I had my cleanse breakdown last week. Before I made my executive decision to break the fast, I was near hospitalization.

If only I could be fabulous the old fashion way, The 'Rexia. Le sigh.

Can you actually die from blandness?
