When most people break up with a loved one, they rely on their friends to help them recover. But what does one do after a conscious uncoupling? The same exact thing, apparently.
Just weeks after her highly publicized split with Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow uploaded a selfie to Instagram that might rival Ellen DeGeneres' fabled Oscar effort in sheer star power. "#Girlsnight," the star wrote below the photo, which included ultra glam lady pals Naomi Watts, Stella McCartney, Gwen Stefani, Chelsea Handler, and Nicole Richie. The move is classic Paltrow, who more than any celebrity loves to let us know that she has famous friends. Well, Gwyneth, we too have famous friends. Our friend Charlie ate 40 pigs in a blanket in one hour and took home first place at last year's county fair. Now he can't go anywhere without someone asking for a photo.
If Nicole Richie — who used to milk cows on television with Paris Hilton — can wrangle her way into this exclusive portrait, then maybe there's hope for our hot dog eating friend, too.
Godspeed, Charlie. Godspeed.
