    Default Gwyneth Goopy Paltrow always gets a table

    Gwyneth always gets a table
    Posted by Lainey
    The Kit has a new interview with Gwyneth Paltrow. It took place a few months ago, just weeks before the “conscious uncoupling”. She talks about her relationship with Apple, about how Apple is into clothing and makeup. She also talks about acting, how it’s become her side job now because it’s too time-consuming and that mainly she’s a business woman now, running a thriving company.
    What?
    You heard that GOOP isn’t doing well, right?
    That’s not how she sees it…hater!
    “My books are No. 1 New York Times best sellers, my website is growing every day and is very successful. If people who know me and love me have a criticism, then I really want to hear it. But if not, it’s just a projection, like I’m a screen, and it’s not about me, so I don’t absorb it.”
    Most of us have inside thoughts that we know we can’t say out loud, especially when we feel defensive. Like at work, if some asshole is fronting like no one else works harder than he does and he’s the reason your department is doing well, you have to restrain yourself from showing him your time card and the email that your boss sent you, telling you that your productivity numbers are the highest.
    Even when the other person is being a dickhead, you’d get called out more for boasting. For being That Person. And then there are the Gwyneth Paltrows of the world who either can’t hear themselves or just don’t give a sh-t. If you tell them that they suck, they would actually reply out loud that “I’m thinner and richer so… I win”.
    That’s basically what she’s doing here.
    What’s winning? Well, dinner reservations, for starters:
    “The best thing about being a well-known person is the connections you are able to make. I was able to start my website and have access to amazing people and information. It’s like being able to call a restaurant and saying, ‘I know you’re full, but is there any way you could squeeze me in?’ and nine times out of 10 they do. That’s worth a lot of harassment.”

    Usually I love Gwyneth and her entitled obnoxiousness but I kind of want to punch her for this one, I think it's the part where all criticism of her is clearly about how jealous you are of her.

    Martin Luther King couldn't get a table in a restaurant even when the place was empty, and we have to hear Paltrow rhapsodize about getting into a full one?

    I want to shove a broom stick in the spokes of her moving Vespa. When her kids aren't on it, of course. I'm not THAT big of a monster.

    You know, I've never understood her appeal. She is boring to look at, boring to watch on screen, boring to hear in interviews. Just a fucking BORE.

    Outside of her proclaimed homage to 70's topiary, I am unmoved by her.

    Yeah, but what's the point of getting a table if you aren't going to eat anything?

    Taraji P. Henson: 'I'm Treated Like I'm on the D-List'

    Taraji P. Henson's acting career is impressive, but she says she still gets treated like a wannabe.

    "I'm treated like I'm on the D-list," Henson tells Ebony in its October issue on newsstands now. "I'm still being considered with actresses who haven't done half the stuff I've achieved."

    Henson, 43, was nominated for an Oscar in 2009 for her role as Queenie in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. In 2011, she earned an Emmy nomination for the title role in Taken from Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story.

    The actress says the lack of deference she's sometimes shown just fuels her to accomplish more.

    "When people tell me 'no,' I get hyped," she says. "Because when I prove that I can and will, I love watching people eat crow."

    One place Henson will not be refused? A restaurant. The actress says she'll use her celebrity status "to get my fat ass into a restaurant. If someone tells me there's a wait, I'll walk right to the front of the line like, 'I need a table now. I need to eat, and I want this. So let's work this out.' "

    With all of that sass, it's no wonder the No Good Deed actress likes The Real Housewives. She says she can't help "watching ratchet, ratchet television – like any of The Real Housewives shows, especially when they were fighting and a girl got her weave snatched out – that is my guilty pleasure. Sometimes, I'll just sit in front of the TV, screaming, 'Ratchet, ratchet, ratchet! Where's the ratchet TV?' "

    Maybe we need a "who's the most obnoxious celeb?" thread, with illustrative examples. These two clearly qualify.

    Having worked in restaurants, I would NEVER do that shit. Never. I hope the staff treats these ladies' food ever so...carefully. Extra lard for Miss Paltrow's entree, fellows!
