Gwyneth Paltrow attended an $80 prix fixe menu event at L.A. eatery Animal. I guess that means our Lady of Goopeloupe’s commitment to the Food Bank for New York Challenge was only symbolic?


Late last week, Paltrow tweeted that, at the nudging of Mario Batali, she was attempting to live on a meager food budget of $29 a week to raise awareness about spending cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

I would say that Gwyneth—though typically clueless—had her heart in the right place here, but that becomes harder to argue when, less than a week later, she goes out for dinner at a restaurant that no one on SNAP could ever afford.

E! Online reports:

A source tells us Paltrow was there for the Austin Midnight Dinner, a promotional event for pal Jon Favreau’s film Chef. “It was a prefixed menu, and the tickets were $80,” the insider tells E! News. “Some of the items on the menu was various types of barbeque, potato salad and beans.”

“A source close to” Sofia Vergara is denying that she ever punched ex fiance Nick Loeb, claiming she “never got physical with Nick, it just didn’t happen. Did they fight? Yes, and a lot, which is why they broke up.” Loeb is currently suing Vergara to keep her from disposing of two embryos they created through IVF while still together and “Sofia wants the embryos destroyed, and is also ready to fight for her rights in court.” [Radar]

Poor little Justin Bieber is having the worst Coachella experience ever. Just after being dragged (supposedly in a chokehold) from a Drake concert by security, the tiny rat ‘stached prince has thrown another tantrum, this time because 19-year-old Kendall Jenner was denied entry into Coachella’s 21+ Neon Carnival. As Just Jared nicely puts it, “Justin tried his best to get Kendall inside, but did not have much luck because the security would not budge. Afterwards, Justin, Kendall, and their large group of friends left.” [Just Jared]

Rihanna treats Drake like I treat my one neighbor who always has coke but constantly complains about his ex gf.

Whatever it’s 2am on a Friday, I ain’t got nothing better to do, and you’re probably going to go down on me like 12 times. Don’t fucking call me in the morning, tho.
