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.
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?
