Mackenzie Dawson, you and your open letter to Gwyneth Paltrow need to LEAVE GWYNNIE ALONE….now go dry your hair!


I’m sorry did I miss the news story about Gwyneth Paltrow murdering someone?  What’s with the latest craze of tearing macro-biotic strips of poor Gwynnie?


 Last week Mackenzie Dawson, gets worldwide attention for penning an open letter to the star, after a recent Gwyneth’s interview where she said, ‘It’s much harder for me, I feel like I set it up in a way that makes it difficult because … for me, like if I miss a school run, they are like, ‘Where were you?’

Ok, there’s two examples here where she says ‘for me…’ the first as it stands may seem to suggest she’s saying it’s harder for her than for other mothers.  However there was no full stop or end to her comments, which are then followed by her next ‘for me’, which reads pretty clearly… to me, that she’s saying she is taking ownership that she has created a life, her choices that have resulted in a lack of routine with her kids.

This says to me that she as many other working mothers, grapples with the fact that she might be letting her kids down by them not seeing mummy at the school gates where other kids do.  Why would we presume that she doesn’t suffer from genuine career mum guilt which is not assigned purely for those that work in films?

She also says “I think it’s different when you have an office job, because it’s routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening.  When you’re shooting a movie, they’re like, ‘We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,’ and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it’s not like being on set.”

I don’t read this like it’s a competition; I read that she’s pointing out the facts that a 9 to 5 job allows for you to be there for the kids in the morning and at night.  Nowhere do I read that she’s implying ‘office working mum’s have it easy and I do not.’

So why is it that this needs to be taken as a personal attack against all working mothers that have normal working hours?

Mackenzie, I’m open lettering you right now, are you saying that it is wrong that mothers should follow their passions in regards to career, or is it just an issue if they happen to make a bucket load of cash doing what they are clearly very good at doing?  Cash that goes towards providing for their family?

 How is it that you can be so self-righteous yet point the finger at another accusing her of being the same? 

 And fancy having such a bitchy public crack at any woman, at a time when she is in the throes of splitting from the man she loved, and caring for two kids who now are losing their parents as they once were?

 Or is it that children of celebrities don’t hurt when their parents split? 

And Mackenzie while we’re creating this cynical little circus together, how about you spare a thought for every person who’s had a miscarriage, lost a child or can’t have children? 

How about popping your poison pen down to celebrities for a jiffy while others might like to shout “Mackenzie what we would trade to have the struggles of having wet hair in the morning whilst trying to attend to a beautiful child but we never will.”

Gwyneth’s copped ridicule for saying she and her husband are ‘consciously uncoupling.’  How a statement that shows thought and wisdom is, suddenly become such a joke?  Or would it make her more relatable if she said ‘I hate his guts and I’m currently shredding his childhood photos’?

I’d truly love to see Mackenzie women consciously uncouple themselves from making motherhood a constant wet hair competition.

  1. Finally someone stands up for Paltrow. I agree. All stars live a different life than us. They all have spend wild amounts of money but only Paltrow is hatted for it. They wear and carry designer items and only Paltrow is hated. They all think they are above us but only Paltrow is hated. The designers are the people who set thier prices but and Paltrow puts them on GOOP and only she is hated for charging so much. But it’s okay for all other designers and website to charge wild amounts for items. Once again only Paltrow is hated. Why is this? People hate her like shes Hitler. People are idiots.

    • Exactly. I think she triggers some intense extra jealously that the other celebrities don’t always get. I think this whole organic and healthy living seems to maybe flag up to others that they might think they’re good mothers but might be feeding themselves and their kids not such great food. So Gwyneth going on about how thoughtful she is on her diet and no doubt her kids, seems to be like she’s exposing other mother’s out there when in reality it’s only them that’s feeling guilty. They don’t have to do as she does but why should she also feel she has to shut up about her lifestyle choices because it might make others feel less than? Women can just be so vicious and competitive. It’s so boring. Not all women thank goodness x

    • Having read this I believed it was very enlightening.
      I appreciate you taking the time and effort to
      put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading

  3. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick
    heads up! Other then that, amazing blog!

  4. I have seen plenty of useful issues on your web site
    about pcs. However, I have got the thoughts and
    opinions that lap tops are still more or less not powerful adequately to be a good choice if you typically do jobs that require lots of power,
    such as video croping and editing. But for net surfing, statement processing,
    and the majority of other typical computer functions they are
    perfectly, provided you don’t mind the screen size.
    Many thanks sharing your notions.

  5. My goal is often to run just one step further each workout.
    If you have properly fitted running shoes, you will find that running is
    enjoyable. Competitors joining in any sports are susceptible to injuries and more often
    than not, these injuries could place them on the sideline,
    others can be career ending.
