I’m No Fan of Madonna’s Strung-out, Muscular Look, Liz Smith Dishes to The Midlife Gals

If having her split with Guy Ritchie dragged through the tabloids this past week hasn’t been torture enough, Madonna also had to endure catty comments from The Midlife Gals and Liz Smith.

The nerve of those ladies – piling on old Madge when she’s down!

Madonna: 50 going on... 500?

So here’s what they said:

While Liz was chatting with Sally and Kelly Jackson, the gossip queen told her fellow Texans that she’d recently been to a party with the likes of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes.

Then Kelly pointed out that Liz had also rubbed elbows with Madonna.

Then Liz said, “Yea, and I saw Madonna right before she announced her divorce and I kept trying to get her to tell me she was going to do that and she acted like she wasn’t.”

Then Sally said, “You know what, Liz?  We’ve decided that Madonna has now crossed the threshold into being too old to exercise as much as she does – because she just doesn’t look very good.”

Then Liz said, “I agree with you. I don’t like that strung-out, muscular look.”

Then Kelly said, “Oh, I don’t either.”

So that’s what they said – if you can believe it (though you didn’t hear it from us).
