The Gwyneth Paltrow Cookbook, a.k.a. The Joy Of Smug Cooking

Do you love Gwyneth Paltrow? Do you love reading her lifestyle newsletter, GOOP? Do you want to eat what Gwynnie eats, right down to the macrobiotic, organic foods that will help cleanse your mind and colon? You’re in luck! Paltrow is releasing a cookbook of her favorite recipes that will be called My Father’s Daughter. Paltrow’s father Bruce, whom she was famously close to, passed away in 2002 and she says the vibe of the book “is meant to channel the ethos of my father by sharing the greatest gifts that he imparted to me – invest in what’s real, clean as you go, drink while you cook. Make it fun.”

While we’re no fans of the holier-than-thou actress whose blog irritates us to no end, we can’t wait to see what kind of recipes she includes in her tome. A few thoughts…

  • Soup and Salad Duets
  • Shakespeare’s In Love With These Brownies
  • Pie Captain And The World Of Tomorrow
  • Simple Ways To Eat More Iron, Man
  • Sliding Hors D’oeuvres
  • Olive Oil Tenebaums
  • Se7en Layer Dip

What did we miss? Oh yes, The Talented Mr. Fish-and-Chipley.

Farrah Fawcett Contacted Tori Spelling From The Afterlife

60828780

Tori Spelling clearly won’t stop at anything to promote her new book, Uncharted TerriTORI, including spinning rumors that her 90210 co-stars can’t stand her. But has she crossed the line from ambitious to ape-sh*t? In a new interview with Out Magazine, she claims Farrah Fawcett reached out to her from beyond the grave. And it’s all in her book, of course.

Apparently, she made contact with Fawcett through a psychic reading from John Edward, professional ghost whisperer. “It was pretty surreal. He offered to do a reading with me and I was hoping I would talk to my dad. I’d lost a best friend a long time ago and I was hoping he would come through. And then, all of a sudden, [he said] Farrah Fawcett’s coming through. And we were neighbors for years. She basically wanted me to give a message to [Fawcett's son] Redmond and to her family and she was doing these very specific call outs for things that they would understand. In the book, I don’t solve it.” Cue in book plug!

She stated, “I can’t believe she came through to me — the most nonconfrontational person in the world. What am I supposed to do with this information? Since the book has been out, I’ve actually written a letter to [her partner and actor] Ryan O’Neal and explained to him in the letter everything that happened. I said, if none of this makes sense, please don’t think I’m crazy, this literally happened. I’m just passing on information but it was pretty bizarre at the time.” Tori, just “passing on information” doesn’t mean passing on information to the whole world. That kinda negates the whole altruistic vibe you were going for.

The Kardashians Write A Book

15028588

So, who thinks this tome’s going to be a best-seller, huh? The sisters Kardashian – Kim, Kourtney and Khloe - have released the name of their book, which is due November. It’s going to be called Kardashian Konfidential. We know…pure genius.

A source gabbed, “It’s going to be an advice book with lots of pictures.” Kim had made a similar comment back in April saying, “It’s going to [have] lots of fun tips and stories and everything about relationships; it’s a little bit more of an in-depth look into our lives, even though people think that they’ve probably seen everything. We’re just being super-candid and sharing lots of pictures and fun stuff.” Ohhh, pretty pictures!  You know you’re going to read it!
