Gwyneth Paltrow continues to build her Goop empire, launching her new quarterly magazine with Conde Nast on September 8 and opening her first brick-and-mortar store, Goop Lab, in the upscale Brentwood Country Mart in Los Angeles last week. In taking Goop to the next level, with $15 million in venture capital funding, the Academy Award-winning actress turned “wellness” entrepreneur has lashed out at critics who say she promotes sham science with her “alternative” health products, from bee-sting facials to vaginal steaming to $66 jade eggs that women can insert into their vaginas to promote sexual health and energy. But Paltrow isn’t letting the critics get to her, including an effort… Read More

Formerly Paralyzed DWTS Star Victoria Arlen: ‘Just Living Seemed Unobtainable for a Long Time’

Being on Dancing with the Stars is an achievement Victoria Arlen never thought she’d experience. At the age of 11, the ESPN personality and former Paralympian was diagnosed with a neurological condition and an autoimmune disease, which affected her spinal cord and left her in a vegetative state for four years. “With everything that I’ve gone through, just living seemed unobtainable for a long time,” Arlen, 22, told reporters after Monday’s episode of DWTS. “So to be here is just such a gift.” Arlen calls being on the ABC reality dance competition “a dream” but says she and pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy have a goal much bigger than their own… Read More
