The Lesser of Two Evils

I have PTSD and the world is going to hell, but for the moment I’m choosing to focus on other matters. For example, here is a challenging dilemma:

Who is more annoying. Gwyneth or Chloe?

On the one hand, Gwyneth has that awful website and now she has a recording contract as a country-western singer.

On the other hand, Chloe has her stupid fashion line for Opening Ceremony and that hipster lifestyle.

Gwyneth has the rock-star husband and the unforgivable names of her children. But Chloe has no talent and she looks like she needs a good hot bath. Each of them is a grating irritant in the oyster of my psyche,  neither  producing a pearl.   I would say it’s closer to a blister. I hate them both.

Don’t get caught up on the word “hate,” if that bother you.   Just tell me who you find more annoying, and why.

Ready, set, go.

    On the other hand, sorry Sister Wolf, PTSD sucks. I had it, thanks to a joyful marriage and a kind loving ex husband. Unlike the other terrible things you have experienced, this is one that really can be helped and get better with time.

    don’t cha know Gwinnie is just a regular working mother faced with all the challenges every working mother faces? Just ask her. ahahaha!

    this is a tough choice to make. I think I hate Gywn more. she is boring, her husband is boring and I dont think she is a beauty at all.

    CS is irritating, and thinks of herself as a fashion icon. I think she looks like shit most of the time. and I wouldnt wear what she does if you PAID me.

    you really picked a toughie to decide who gets more of my hate….

    Chloe. Who even IS she?
    Thoughts are with you, Sister.

    hmm, I actually like Gwyneth – but she has had terrible taste in boyfriends, sorry!! (I hate how Colplay sounds most of the time too, never saw the appeal in it-??)

    Chloe – not sure who she is (had to Google her lol!) She does look smug/arrogant & slightly irritating, yup! And anyone who actually acted in American Psycho deserves a vote-down, no?

    Agree with Helen & Muffy otherwise – I think it’s great people do different things, I mean, why not? (Even if the results are sub-par… or if it’s not what you’d expect.. I’d never cast Gwyneth as Sylvia Plath but hey – I think she may have related to the role, think she kinda had depression issues and such in the past too.. kind of like Madonna wanted to play Evita?)

    Chloe deserves kudos for braving extra short skirts and shorts at 36, no? 😉 Though that do es kinda make her even a bit more irritating, hehe.. :)

    Oops typo – *does* in that last sentence..

    Just read Chloe has had scoliosis too.. crap! Things like that make’em more human, no?

    With all said, they still seem kinda interesting women…? lol
    Thanks for making me google them up! haha..

    And it’s inspiring what they have managed to achieve despite their shortcomings and struggles and all, no?

    I feel like Gwyneth has won this! Hurrah! I knew she could do it!

    Gwyneth, hands down. I find Chloe utterly innocuous. She doesn’t try to be all things to all people (lifestyle director, cookbook author, fitness impresario, country western singer (is that a joke??).

    On the one hand, I admire Gwyneth’s gumption. She’s rightly trying to fashion a second act for herself now that she can no longer play the role of the ingenue; great roles for women over 35-40 are, sadly, still the exception not the rule. Unfortunately, she’s so smug and anal retentive about all of it, and with her clarion calls for CLEANSES and crap like that, it makes it hard for me to root for her.

    By the way, love your writing, love your blog.

    For me, there is no question.

    If you look in the dictionary under the word “smug”, there you will find an image of Gwyneth. May her colon be cleansed in perpetuity.

    They are both so bland, if they were a flavour of crisps they would both be ready salted. I fuckin hate Katy Perry though. She’s as irritating as thrush.

  14. vancouverista Says:

    Both are irritating. However, you will like and understand Chloe so much more if you watch ‘Big Love.’ She made that show. She did play an awful person on it though.

  15. Cat Says:

    Chloe herself might be annoying, not that I’ve ever looked into her personality before, but I LOVE her line of shoes for OC. She might be getting tons of help in the designing process, but either way, she clearly has SOME form of talent, or at least good visions.
