S7E10: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart | Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin & Dorothy Dandridge

This week, Alicia’s taking a detour to tell the decidedly not-trashy tale of actress and Goopster Gwyneth Paltrow’s conscious uncoupling from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. She really wanted to find some trash in here, y’all, but they kind of handled it really well. Then, Stacie has the sad story of pioneering Black actress and singer Dorothy Dandridge, who pried open a lot of doors in Hollywood that others would walk through, but was never able to have the family she wanted more than anything else.
