In order for a girl who's fresh off a conscious uncoupling from her man to pull it together, she needs to indulge in a good old-fashioned girls' getaway that will help her deal with being newly single and plot a plan for revenge-I mean, figure out how to move on with her life. If the reports are true, that's just what Gwyneth Paltrow is preparing to do, and she's taking her BFF Beyonce along for the 4-day California retreat. Other than wailing out loud, "Take meeee...," the first thing that comes to mind is what will this getaway entail? Reportedly, the short trip will include yoga, meditation, hiking and wine tasting. But I refuse to believe all of these cultured events will be the only activities on their agenda. After all, celebs are people, too.
Paltrow will undoubtedly take this time to deal with the split, acting is really hard, plus she's been saying more crazy stuff lately, including her belief that water reacts to negativity. Her theory hasn't been confirmed yet, but I don't want to cause a tidal wave so I'll just stop there. Beyonce recently wrapped a world tour, is prepping the "On the Run" tour with Jay Z, and just recovered from the elevator ride from hell. So the best buds obviously need this trip. Here are a few things they could do:
Gorge on Ben & Jerry's. Guys, this could happen. We may not hear about it, or see it on Instagram, but no post-breakup girl trip is complete without an ice cream binge.
Wine tasting? More like wine guzzling.
Blow a bunch of money on stupid celebrity stuff, like those million-dollar manicures.
Have a blubbering cry fest, then immediately stop upon realizing how awesome their lives still are in spite of their troubles.
If this vacation actually happens, we'll just have to check Bey's Instagram for photos of their exploits that will probably look like they're straight from the pages of a glossy travel mag. But any gritty photos of girls' weekend debauchery, like a drunken Bey and Paltrow stumbling out of a bar, will likely never see the light of day.
