Reasons To Hate Gwyneth Paltrow: Puddin’ On La Ritz

by | 27th, February 2009

GWYNETH Paltrow lives in the buccolic splendour of Belsize Park in London, a green beating lung slithered in the 20-odd yards between the Finchley Road and Captain Rizz’s campaign truck.

Paltrow is sorted. And the New York Times wonders “why is Ms. Paltrow the victim of such ridicule?”:

In September, Ms. Paltrow appeared on “Oprah” to show off her post-pregnancy workout routine, then proceeded to mystify audiences by appearing with Mario Batali, the chef, in the PBS series “Spain … on the Road Again,” where she drank soy milk and followed her quasi-vegan diet while others pigged out on pork. A few months later, Publishers Weekly announced that she had sold a cookbook proposal about the pleasures of cooking for the family. Then, it was announced that she was partnering with her (and Madonna’s) trainer, Tracy Anderson, to open a gym in TriBeCa.

Question asked. Questiosn answered. In full:

Recent issues have offered tips on family harmony from a leader of the kabbalah community, cozy mothering anecdotes (and the revelation that her children call adults “grownies”)

Show your workings:

The enterprise attracting the most media sniping right now?, a lifestyle Web site and e-mail introduced in September that hits subscribers’ in-boxes on Thursdays with tips like “police your thoughts” and “eliminate white foods.” The site’s name is derived from Ms. Paltrow’s initials, and its slogan, “Nourish the Inner Aspect”

Why? Just hint… Why do we mock the mother of Moses and Apple? Whyyyyy????

The question is, why bother putting herself out there so boldly? Is it possible that with her homes in London and the Hamptons, and a husband who, while a star, has to share his profits with a four-member band, she actually needs to find new ways of working her brand to make money?

She needs money? Says she:

“There are two schools of thought regarding l’Ami Louis: one is that it is an overpriced place for tourists and the other is that it is one of the best, most venerable bistros in Paris. I am firmly in the school of the latter.”

“Although I occasionally try the “new” spot or an old-new spot, I always keep coming back to the Ritz. The place is just beautiful and the service is pretty flawless for France. Yes, it costs an arm and a leg, but it’s worth it.”

“After a couple of days in Paris when I need to lay off the butter and goose fat, I head to Kinugawa for a Japanese lunch.”

In Tokyo…
