    In a very competitive situation, Netflix has landed The Politician, a new hourlong comedy series from longtime collaborators Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan and Ryan Murphy, I have learned. The project, starring Tony winner Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hanson), with Oscar winners Barbra Streisand and Gwyneth Paltrow in negotiations to co-star, has received a two-season straight-to-series order, I hear. The deal, believed to be the biggest TV package sale of the year, came after a weeklong bidding war among top streaming players, including Amazon and Hulu, sources said. It gives prolific creator-producer Murphy two series on Netflix, along with the upcoming...
  • Dear Gwyneth Paltrow, I’m a GYN and your vaginal jade eggs are a bad idea

    Dear Ms. Paltrow, I’ve been reading all about the jade eggs you are selling on GOOP for $55-66 a pop and the corresponding interview with a jade egg enthusiast. I have tried not to respond to this hot mess, after all a man who leers at naked 15 year-olds and brags about sexual assault is about to assume the highest office in the land. Quite frankly women have more compelling health interests right now, however, I have been asked by so many people about your vaginal rocks that I felt it necessary to drop you a line. I read the...

    Animal rights activists circulated photos of the husband and wife team behind Cafe Gratitude and Gracias Madre eating a burger and keeping freezer full of beefThe California-based husband and wife founders of celebrity-endorsed vegan restaurant group Cafe Gratitude say they have received death threats after it was revealed last week that they are raising, slaughtering and eating animals on their farm north of San Francisco. Matthew and Terces Engelhart, both in their sixties, who opened the first Cafe Gratitude in 2004 and whose celebrity followers have included Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé and Sacha Baron Cohen, countered the firestorm of criticism with...

    The first clue that Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t know what she was talking about on Capitol Hill earlier this month came with the first words she spoke: “I’m here as a mother.” Apparently, the actress thinks that any mom can show up in Washington and hold a press conference that attracts lawmakers and the media. Memo to Ms. Paltrow: The rest of us moms don’t have that celebrity power. We haven’t won Oscar awards, assumed glamorous roles in the “Iron Man” movies, or married (let alone divorced) rock stars. But Ms. Paltrow has done all of these things so, of course,...

    Aspiring actors are being harassed by dodgy casting agents, say Equity Actors' union will draw up audition guidelines to stop probing questions Inappropriate behaviour by movie executives revealed by celebrities Helen Mirren said she felt 'like a piece of meat' after one casting call Actors are being increasingly pressured into having sex with sleazy casting agents to get sought-after parts, a union has warned. The president of Equity, which represents British performers, said the problem of the 'casting couuch' where actors are pressured into giving sexual favours in return for roles is getting worse and is 'completely out of order'....

    Gwynnie P is down with the struggle, comrades. She may make $19 million a year, own mansions in London, New York, Brentwood, Malibu, and the Hamptons, charge $550 for her Goop.com “travel backgammon set,” and fly by private jet, but she feels your pain. OK, it’s not as painful as her last $5,200 Thermage session in Santa Monica, but still, she really, really does feel the agony of the ordinary. Last week, the progressive princess celebrity joined the “SNAP challenge.” It’s basically the ice-bucket challenge for bored Hollywood liberals and media-hungry Democratic politicians. For seven days (or at least for...
  • Gwyneth Paltrow Eaten Alive on Social Media for Living on $29 Food Stamp Budget

    Gwyneth Paltrow is slashing her food budget to raise awareness about hunger. But sometimes even the best intentions are met with criticism, eye rolls and sarcasm. Last week, the Oscar winner announced that she had accepted The Food Bank for New York City challenge to live on food stamps for one week, with a grocery budget of $29 or about $1.38 per meal. According to the #FoodBankNYCChallenge, needy families are given $29 per person as part of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP, after Congress cut food stamps twice since 2013. Once Paltrow accepted the challenge, she tweeted...

    wyneth Paltrow has vowed to live on just $29 worth of food for a week, after agreeing to take on a charity challenge aimed at raising awareness and funds for New York's food banks. The 42-year-old mother-of-two, who founded popular lifestyle wesbite Goop, posted a picture of her $29 grocery shop on her Twitter account yesterday afternoon, showcasing a range of healthy options, including a variety of fresh vegetables, some brown rice and some black beans. 'This is what $29 gets you at the grocery store - what families on SNAP (i.e. food stamps) have to live on for a...

    As usual in December, President Obama and family and staff and their families and Secret Service and armored motorcade vehicles and the family dogs flew out to Hawaii this past weekend for a couple weeks of golf and dining out. [Snip] That luxury 747 alone costs $182,000 per hour to operate. It´s a nine-hour flight from Washington to one of the farthest reaches of the 50 states -- each way. How about Obama´s other discretionary trips? How much are taxpayers billed for those?

    Martha Stewart is recovering from the loss of her CEO to rival Gwyneth Paltrow by axing up to 50 employees. The cuts will hit the sales and marketing departments at Martha Stewart Omnimedia hardest while some workers will be moved to Meredith Corporation. Last week, the 73-year-old's former CEO Lisa Gersh was hired by Paltrow's lifestyle company GOOP, which is currently engaged in a vicious media war with Martha's brand. But staffers were shocked to find out the news because the layoffs had been such a well-kept secret, a source told the New York Daily News. It's not the first...
  • Ebola is Much Less Scary Than Hollywood's 'Contagion.' Or is it?

    While disposing of a body in a mass grave, one man in a hazmat suit turns to another and asks, "When did we run out of body bags?" "Two days ago." Fortunately, the scene is only from the movie "Contagion," though it's probably close enough to what is going on in parts of West Africa right now. The 2011 hit about a runaway virus that kills millions has probably come to mind to more than a few people of late as we watch governments struggle to contain Ebola and reassure the public. So far, real life is much less scary....

    Even in their darkest hour, Democrats can still count on one group to support them, Hollywood. The land of make believe is filled with hopelessly liberal fools who continue to give major donations to Democrat Party leaders. In recent days, Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama have benefited from lavish Hollywood fundraisers. Last night, Barack Obama was celebrated at an extravagant fundraiser hosted by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, a far left wing activist. The event featured some of the biggest names in Hollywood, such as actress Julia Roberts. Tickets cost as much as $15,000...

    As gossip websites buzzed about Gwyneth Paltrow and President Obama — her “you’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly” is already being mocked unmercifully — her Los Angeles neighbors lashed out Friday that the Paltrow-hosted presidential fund-raiser had come at their expense. Traffic stood still, children were stranded at school, residents could not leave their own driveways. That’s not the way life is supposed to be lived in Mandeville Canyon. In a post on the Nextdoor Mandeville Canyon website, a private social network for area residents, Bret Lewis said that the neighborhood did not need people like Ms. Paltrow...

    Obama Wrapping Up California Fundraising Trip October 11 2014 DARLENE SUPERVILLE President Barack Obama on Saturday wrapped up a week that saw him raise campaign money for Democrats on both coasts. Obama attended a "round table" discussion at the home of Democratic donor and Zynga founder Mark Pincus and his wife, Ali, with about 25 supporters who paid up to $32,400 for the privilege, according to Democratic officials. It was Obama's fourth California fundraiser in three days and was closed to media coverage. This coming week brings more of the same for the president, including his long-anticipated, first appearance at...

    President Obama’s arrival in southern California Thursday was greeted by a ripple of discontent about the administration’s handling of the Ebola epidemic. Bumper stickers reading “EBOLA,” with the middle letter replaced by the iconic Obama campaign “O,” have appeared on cars in the Los Angeles area. Truth Revolt, a conservative news site, published photos of three cars with the stickers on Wednesday. The president’s fundraising trip begins Thursday night at the home of actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Several posters depicting actress Ms. Paltrow as an “Obama Drone” have surfaced near her Brentwood home. One such poster near an elementary school includes...

    Last night Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow hosted a fundraiser for President Obama and the Democrats at her ritzy home in Brentwood, California. Paltrow is worth $140 million dollars and was raised in a rich, privileged family before making her way to the big screen. But that didn't stop her from classifying herself as a "working mother" concerned about equal pay for women, an issue Obama has been dishonestly harping on.

    Gwyneth Paltrow has won numerous awards for her acting, but speaking apparently came with some difficulty Thursday with President Barack Obama standing beside her. "You're so handsome that I can't speak properly," the actress, singer and food writer gushed after introducing Obama to several hundred supporters seated on white fold-out chairs in the lush backyard of her home in the movie star haven of Brentwood, a neighborhood in Los Angeles. In a not-so-subtle reference to her "conscious uncoupling" earlier this year from husband Chris Martin, Paltrow said it was a "profound honor" to have Obama in the home she shares...

    Los Angelenos will have lots of time on the roads this afternoon to contemplate the midterm elections when President Obama flies in for one of those “Hollywood fundraisers” news outlets love to sniff at — especially this one, at the home of Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth’s Brentwood neighborhood was festooned with Obama Drone non-fan posters in anticipation of the president’s visit — tickets to which raised $1K to $32K per head for the Democratic National Committee, depending on whether the ticket holder wanted to actually get dinner as well as a photo with Obama. Press already is reporting that Obama plans...

    At a fundraiser hosted in her Hollywood home on Thursday night, actress and conscious uncoupler Gwyneth Paltrow was unable to contain that inner acolyte American liberals usually try to keep hidden from public view, as she gushed with child-like wonder over President Obama’s mere presence.“You’re so handsome I can hardly speak,” she said reasonably,declaring her undying allegiance and praising what she considers to be his many accomplishments; chief among them being, apparently, “advocacy. An altogether fitting object of praise for the land where raising awareness is the same as single-handedly securing a cure for any ill. From his smiley-face worthy...

    President Obama at Gwyneth Paltrow Fundraiser: Democrats Should Feel "Sense of Urgency" Over Midterms The Democrats many not want President Barack Obama out on the campaign trial, but they're happy to have him at a fundraiser, which brought him back to Los Angeles Thursday and into Gwyneth Paltrow's backyard. The actress introduced the President to a crowd of 200 supporters. She gushed: "You’re so handsome that I can’t speak properly.” Paltrow also described herself as one of Obama's "biggest fans, if not the biggest.”
