Gwyneth Paltrow just had one of her new products blow up. But not in the good way. Her vagina candle actually exploded in someone's house.

Gwyneth Paltrow has one of the most, um, unique products out there right now. What started as a joke has turned into a truly one of a kind piece of home decor and fragrance enhancer. But now the product might have backfired with a report that Paltrow’s vagina candle exploded on someone in their home. 

If a Gwyneth Paltrow vagina candle seems like some weird pandemic-times mad lib that someone just threw together for a laugh, you wouldn’t be crazy. But we live in a mad world and that’s just what’s for sale these days. In this latest news, the candle is said to have exploded in a London woman’s home causing what she called an “inferno”. She dealt with the problem by apparently throwing it out the front door. Not exactly Smokey the Bear level fire safety, but alas, I’ve never dealt with an ablaze vagina candle so what do I know?

Gwyneth Paltrow’s candle is aptly and literally called “This Smells Like My Vagina”. I don’t think we need to go too much further into the description here. The name tells most of the story. It’s available on her website Goop for the nominal cost of $75. What do you get for this outrageous cost? Nothing. It’s just a candle. And of course, it’s not actually what the actress smells like down there. It’s simply a mix of a bunch of different fragrances like geranium, citrus, cedar, and rose.

Other than Gwyneth Paltrow vagina candles, Goop is mostly just health, beauty and fashion products from the actress. This product, apparently, started as a joke between friends that ultimately was turned into a real thing. Congrats. I don’t think many others would have pulled something like this off. And if folks are actually going to by it, then more power to her. 

It’s unclear if anything comes from one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s candles exploding in this incident. There have been no other reports of anything like this anywhere else. We could be looking at a lawsuit grab or something of the like if they are claiming it was defective. Or maybe this starts a wave of other problems if people think there’s some money to be had here. 

Other than this latest run of unfortunate news for one of her products, Gwyneth Paltrow made some moderate headlines the other day when she said she was essentially done with acting going forward. She is just coming off a role in her husband, Brad Falchuk’s Netflix show The Politician. But the actress said in an interview that she doesn’t plan on taking many roles going forward, maybe not any. It could have just been an off-the-cuff remark, but she also doesn’t have any future roles reportedly in the pipeline.

The reason for leaving acting, among other things for Gwyneth Paltrow is she’s just going to be working more on the aforementioned Goop website. But if her vagina candles keep exploding, maybe we’ll be seeing her more on the screen after all. I can’t imagine this is the last we hear of this crazy story.
