In a carefully worded article, the New York Times questions Gwyneth Paltrow's apparent ambition to become a lifestyle brand on par with Oprah and Martha. Central to the effort, of course, is her forthcoming cookbook. But, um, why?
Beth Wareham, director of lifestyle books at Scribner and the editor of “The Joy of Cooking,” wondered aloud [...]
We've been following L.A. Magazine's Mary Melton as she subjects herself — voluntarily! — to a one-week cleanse outlined in Gwyneth Paltrow's incredibly stupid e-mail newsletter, GOOP.
