Think you're learning everything you need to know from the recently consciously uncoupled Gwyneth Paltrow? Think again. Gwyneth's GOOP isn't the only celebrity tell-all lifestyle website in Tinseltown. Nope, there are lots of others. In fact, it's a full-blown trend right now for Hollywood moms to create a brand with their $$ name. It's a good way for them to have their cake and eat it too—as long as it's gluten-free, of course—since they can still bring in the big bucks, focus on family (instead of shooting films overseas) and worry not about dwindling female acting roles. Plus, the mom market is hot, so why not?

When Jessica Alba brought her Honest Company to Canada, she had a launch party here in Toronto and invited yours truly and a bunch of lovely mom bloggers and media to attend. I got to sit down with her and her business partner, Steven Spielberg's son-in-law (Jessica Capshaw's hubby) Christopher Gavigan. She told me all about her Honest brand, gave me a signed copy of her book, The Honest Life, and there were samples to try. I just used my Honest healing balm today—I like it!Photo: Parisa/FameFlynet
