Bethenny Frankel: Gwyneth Paltrow is Unwatchable

Bethenny Frankel: Gwyneth Paltrow is Unwatchable

Gwyneth Paltrow keeps cool in a pair of denim cut-offs (with pockets showing!) on Tuesday, August 11, in The Hamptons, NY.

The 36-year-old actress has been posting videos of herself cooking on her website Goop.com but Bethenny Frankel finds it pretty unappetizing.

“The idea of Gwyneth being the next Julia Child is unthinkable and probably unwatchable,” says the 38-year-old Real Housewives of NY star. “I once watched her show [Spain…on the Road Again] with chef Mario Batali. It was like watching delicious paint dry.”

Adds Bethenny, “I’m just not feeling her as the next Rachael Ray, who’s fun and goofy and a wing-it kind of girl. Wasn’t Gwyneth macrobiotic, then vegan, then into juice fasting? You need to be willing to dive in and taste it all and not always be on some cleansing fad diet… Who can afford holistic doctors, meals at Babbo, cupping sessions and healers? If I buy my food at Costco and get my hair done for 30 bucks, what’s the average viewer able to afford?”

    Paltrow has a nice body but she’s not a very attractive woman.

    Gwyn is very butch looking without the styling and makeup.

    Agree, Gwyneth needs to work on her presentation, but this is hardly newsworthy.

    She’s right.

    Onyx Says:

    She is thin but I don’t find her figure all that great — she’s just very tall.

    just sayin' Says:

    Bethenny Frankel has actually been in the food industry for years and has written a NY Times best seller. But less people know her because she doesn’t come from a famous family like Paltrow.

    @scarlett and @faith:
    I agree with you both.

    I was wondering the same thing

    Gwyneth is a good actress but her face is average to me.

    What is wrong with Bethenney’s neck and head? It doesn’t fit or something.

    It looks like someone photoshopped her bobble head to another body.

    I think Gwyn looks like Claire Danes’ mother which is not necessarily a bad thing.

    Chris Says:

    These chicks both have really square faces and kind of resemble men.

    i love goop and enjoy her videos. it’s not like she’s trying to become a cook. people are just so mean.

    Venus Says:

    I’m not a huge fan of Frankel’s but she has a valid point. If this is something Gwyneth is serious about pursuing, she really needs to work on her technique…

    Venus Says:

    …Her first video was very dull and she seemed uncomfortable in front of the camera.

    EvilLynn Says:

    @huh

    It looks like her partoid glands are swollen (sometimes a sign of bulemia) which gives her the appearance of having a head that’s too big for her neck. I hope she’s not doing that, though.

    Liz Says:

    Well, she’s passing herself off as a chef in her cookbook recipe, so I don’t find it mean that people are questioning her credentials. If she weren’t already famous, she probably never would have landed a book deal.

    Ross Says:

    Paltrow has the body of a goddess and the face of a bulldog.

    michelle Says:

    I kind of do agree with Bethenny, even though I don’t like any of them.

  21. 21
    Hannah Says:

    Bethenny could have been more tactful but she has a point. Most of Gwyneth’s site seems geared toward the upper class, which is fine, but she is probably going to need more middle class consumers if she wants her cookbook to be successful

    t Says:

    Gwyneth is one of the few celebs who I think looks better with more makeup. Usually it’s the opposite, but she’s quite homely off the red carpet. Agree, she does have fabulous legs though.

    nine Says:

    I think they’re both unwatchable although my understanding is Frankel is an actual chef.

    James Says:

    GP looks like a dude and BF a transvestite.
    Can GP cook?

    Her face looks like a fug owl.
    but Gwyn usually looks cute in most of her outfits though.
