A real Paltrow fail totally tickles me. Is that so wrong to say out loud?
ANYHOO, about a week ago, Gwyneth Paltrow was challenged by chef Mario Batali to survive on $29 worth of food stamps a week. Answer: not at ALL. After spotting her grabbing a romantic meal with boyfriend Brad Falcuhk, everyone knew that she absolutely did not. And then, Gwynny finally came clean in her GOOP newsletter.
The Iron Man actress said:
“As I suspected, we only made it through about four days, when I personally broke and had some chicken and fresh vegetables (and in full transparency, half a bag of black licorice). My perspective has been forever altered by how difficult it was to eat wholesome, nutritious food on that budget, even for just a few days—a challenge that 47 million Americans face every day, week, and year.
A few takeaways from the week were that vegetarian staples liked dried beans and rice go a long way—and we were able to come up with a few recipes on a super tight budget.”
Hopefully this *attempt* brings even more awareness to an issue many face, along with how ridiculous Gwyneth Paltrow is. Do you think she’ll try the challenge again, at some point?

Woah, news to me: Octavia Spencer is NOT a nice lady!
The Help actress apparently shocked and angered hundreds of fans at a recent book signing with her terrible attitude, enough so that they wanted refunds on their purchases.
As you may remember, Spencer won Best Supporting Actress for her role as Minnie Jackson, a maid, in ‘The Help,’ and is currently starring in the film ‘Insurgent.’ Well, she also wrote a children’s book called ‘Randi Rhodes Ninja Detective — The Sweetest Heist in History’ and was at the Grove yesterday to sign copies. But before the event was over, people were literally DRAGGING their kids out of line, demanding refunds and leaving the store in disappointment! DANG. Dailymail reports:
‘Initially, there was a Q & A but Octavia acted like she was forced to be there and she took her anger out on all of us, including the kids.
‘Octavia’s answers were short and blunt and there were times she rolled her eyes to the back of her head like she couldn’t believe someone could ask such a stupid question. It quickly became a very uncomfortable situation for all of us,’ says Guzman.
‘It was clear they just needed to proceed to the autographs because Octavia was not responding well at all to the questions.’
Octavia was scheduled to autograph her books from 7-9 p.m. but she was complaining the moment she arrived about the space they put her in, the ‘tiny glass of water’ she was given, that her feet were hurting so she took a long bathroom break, leaving everyone to wonder if she left or not.
‘Octavia was acting like a diva. She was mad because the event coordinator gave her a small glass of water but she wanted a large liter of ‘good water’ and demanded to know why she was being treated this way,’ Guzman continued.
‘All of this happened in front of everyone who has been standing there for at least an hour, with their restless kids, waiting for her to show up. Octavia didn’t acknowledge the crowd in any way; she just showed up and started to complain. But when the she finally started to sign the books is when things went from bad to worse.’
Ordinarily, celebrities allow their fans to take a picture with them at these book signings, but Octavia said no touching, no coming around the table to take a pic with her and she also refused to have small talk with anyone — just give her the book to sign and keep it moving.
And she didn’t even want to ask the customer what was their name, they had to tell the assistant standing nearby their name, she wrote it on a sticky pad and handed it to Octavia, who then signed the book and slid it over to the edge of the table for pickup, like it was a fast food window.
After watching Octavia being abrupt and rude to several people one woman grabbed her 8-year-old and stormed off yelling, ‘This woman is an ungrateful, nasty b****! I’m getting a refund on this stupid book. If she talked to me or my child like that it would get really ugly in here so it’s best we get our money back and go home before something jumps off.’
‘I’m probably the most militant person you’ll ever meet and I speak my mind without provocation sometimes,’ Octavia was once quoted, and she admits she is a nasty sleepwalker. But clearly, according the eyewitnesses at this book signing, she doesn’t have to be asleep to be nasty.
‘After several more encounters with her audience, a man approached with an 8X10 photo of Octavia for her to sign but she was clearly furious and said, ‘I’m NOT doing that.
‘The guy was devastated, saying he bought it specifically for that day, that he was a big fan and he promised he would not post it on any social media outlets but she didn’t care — she said ‘absolutely, not.’ But she did sign the book he just bought and slid it across the table to the guy — who was absolutely dumbfounded,’ Guzman explained. ‘And boy, that was it. The crowd started to leave in droves and went directly to the counter to get refunds for the books.’
Oh man. Say bye bye to your career, lady. And know what? If you act like this, I’m not sure you deserve one. Have any of you had a celebrity encounter like this? SO disappointing.

Jennifer Aniston has her regimen DOWN!
The actress recently revealed how she manages to stay so fit and healthy at 46, and not surprisingly the Cake star sticks to a strict low-carb diet, explaining:
“I stick to a low-carb, gluten-free diet with lots of protein and vegetables. I love brown-rice bread – it’s really good for you. Just put a little coconut oil and sea salt on top. Delicious.”
Okay, so does she ever indulge, though?
Aniston revealed:”On Sundays I eat whatever I want.”
When it comes to her workout routine, however, the actress isn’t as lax:
“My workouts are usually an hour to an hour and a half, four to five times a week. But if I don’t have much time I can cram a lot into a half hour. I’ll do 10 minutes of cardio then circuits. Three sets of three exercises: lunges, squats and push-ups. I just go hard for 30 minutes without stopping.”
DANG. I’m exhausted just reading this. That being said- he workout routine doesn’t seem THAT unreasonable, does it? Weigh in below!

Kaley Cuoco insists that she’s a-okay with husband Ryan Sweeting, but she insists a little too much, if you know what I’m saying…
The Big Bang Theory star, 29, posted a buch of photos via Instagram of Ryan: collages, some of him just playing tennis, etc. And also sharing some inspirational thoughts. People reports:
“I have never been more proud of anyone on this planet — this guy is fighting back from a whirlwind of injuries and not to mention constant ‘conversation’ regarding our marriage and basically any daily decision we decide to make.”
“I’m so proud of his passion and his inner strength to fight back, but most of all I am proud to be his wife,” Cuoco added of her tennis star husband, whom she married on Dec. 31, 2013. “So all of you who take it upon yourselves to trash our marriage, daily workings of our relationship and everything in between, go ahead and keep doing it, cause it only makes us stronger — if you were smart, you would take a look at your own marriage, relationship, job etc, instead of focusing on someone else’s. You might be surprised at what you find. ‘You know my name, not my story.'”
Cuoco has faced constant rumors about her relationship after her speedy romance with Sweeting, but why does she care so much about what people think of them? Geez. Don’t sweat your haters, girl!
