We all know Lainey has been a teeny bit concerned about getting chicken pox, which would suck. But you know what would probably suck even more? Measles! And it’s so freakishly contagious that it’s hard not to get paranoid about it. (Lainey: which is why I just got a Measles booster two weeks ago!) Medical experts are attributing the measles outbreak to parents not vaccinating their children. Full Story

We spend a lot of time here discussing the hard sell of parenthood in the tabloids: baby bump speculation, the motherhood/fatherhood whitewash, selling photos, social media posts, even maternity clothing. There’s an argument to be made that Hollywood commodifies women’s bodies, and that attitude extends into the womb. Full Story

“You do the best you can. Some days you feel really good about yourself and sometimes you don’t.” “We’re all trying to do the best we can.” Are you still with me, or did I put you to sleep? If you are bored, don’t blame me, blame Katie Holmes. As Lainey mentioned earlier this week, Katie is out pedaling her own (very boring) story with a PEOPLE exclusive (click here Full Story

Angelina Jolie was at a press conference for Maleficent the other day and was asked about balancing her work with being a mother. You’ve heard other celebrities complain about how hard it is for them raising their kids while making movies, ahem GOOP. Well, here’s another way to answer that question – by not bitching about it. Full Story

Mother’s Day is this weekend and as we scramble for last-minute reservations and stress out about the slim pickings in the drugstore greeting card aisle, Gwyneth, via GOOP is all about Ending the Mommy Wars. She starts off her newsletter with her usual personal note and mentions how a few weeks ago she gave an interview about being a working mom and preferring a 9-to-5 schedule, which she thinks gives women an opportunity to project their feelings about the subject onto her. Full Story

It’s been a week of Conscious Uncoupling for Gwyneth – a phrase that has instantly entered the vernacular. How’s that for influential? With the news of the divorce, outlets are combing through every interview for signs of marriage trouble and obnoxious tidbits from Gwyneth (not hard to find). Full Story

There are some celebrity mothers that just piss other moms off – Gwyneth comes to mind, of course (is an organic lemonade stand that outrageous? It’s kind of standard farmers market fare these days), and Angelina is another. Apparently allowing your daughter to wear pants and short hair is something other moms frown upon. Full Story

GOOP doesn’t care what you think

Gwyneth Paltrow guest-edited the new issue of RED. In the magazine, she defends herself against critics who were slagging her for being a working mother and neglecting to spend time with her children. I wasn’t aware that that was why she picks people’s asses. I thought she picked people’s asses because, well, you know. Full Story

On the first week of The Social, which was also back-to-school week for kids, we talked about how much money moms have been spending on themselves on the school run.

Gwyneth’s Hunger Games

(Lainey: as promised, there will be a lot of G on the site today. Previously we heard from Dean. Here’s Maria’s take on Gwyneth’s new cookbook.) It’s a wonderful time for gossip when Gwyneth is promoting something because raging on her is practically a national pastime. Full Story

Gwyneth or Amy Chua?

Who do you hate more, Judgy Moms? GOOP for her “A Day in the Life” working mom blog from a couple of weeks ago, or Amy Chua and the challenge to Western parenting that she threw down in her book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother?
