Good Morning America: Celebrity Heat Index
People magazine managing editor Larry Hackett was on GMA with the latest on the hot celebrity stories of the week, including Melissa Gilbert’s wedding. Plus, GMA looked at the new way teens are planning for their prom dresses.
GMA: Gwyneth Paltrow Antonio Berardi Dress
People named Gwyneth Paltrow the most beautiful woman in the world on its latest cover. She has been stepping out again on the red carpet. She wore a green Antonio Berardi dress for the premiere of Iron Man 3.
Her sheer dress was apparently the talk of the red carpet. Hackett explained that Paltrow works out two hours a day, according to her “most beautiful” story in the magazine.
In retrospect, Paltrow is telling Ellen DeGeneres she did not realize just how revealing her dress was. The GMA gang seemed to agree that the dress was a good choice.
Good Morning America: Will Smith Parenting
Will Smith has said that he and Jada Pinkett Smith do not punish their children at home. “We don’t do punishment,” Smith recently said.
Could you imagine growing up without ever being punished? Isn’t that what parents are for? We don’t hear much about the Smith children acting up, but Hackett speculated that everything could be under control because they are often working with their parents.
GMA: Melissa Gilbert Surprise Wedding
You know Melissa Gilbert from her days in Little House on the Prairie and a more recent spin across the ballroom on Dancing With The Stars. This week, she is in the news for a surprise wedding.
She and actor/director Timothy Busfield (Thirtysomething, The West Wing) tied the knot in a surprise ceremony. They had announced their engagement in January 2013, and have known one another for decades.
Good Morning America: Beyonce Standing On The Sun
Beyonce has premiered a sneak preview of her new song “Standing On The Sun” in a hybrid commercial with the fashion retailer H&M. The savvy partnership between the singer and the stores does make a great summer commercial video.
“She can do whatever she wants,” the GMA team agreed.
GMA: Prom Season Dresses On Facebook
There’s nothing more embarrassing than showing up at a formal event wearing the same outfit as someone else. But thanks to social media, teens are solving that problem for prom.
Good Morning America featured a report about how New Jersey teens are working together to ensure this does not happen to them. Notwithstanding the fact that I can’t believe how much teens spend on these dresses, this is a clever use of social media.
They started a Facebook group with classmates to show off and “call dibs on gowns.” That way, everyone knows what is off limits. Even celebrities have this problem on the red carpet now and then.
The downside of social media is that people can express their negative comments and thoughts, which can sometimes be unpleasant. But those New Jersey students seem to think the downside is worth knowing you won’t run into a twin at the prom.
