Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, received a negative response from her peers when she attended the East Hampton Library’s 9th Annual Authors Night on Saturday to promote her cookbook, It's All Good. Christina Oxenberg, author of Life Is Short, wrote a negative review on her blog regarding the Oscar-winning actress' presence at the event. "Due to the inflexibility of the alphabet I had the questionable good fortune to be seated directly beside Gwyneth Paltrow," she wrote. "The divinity in question arrived with hubby, children, and a couple of massive bodyguards. The worshippers blocked my view of the whole world, abusing my tiny territory upon which to abandon their trash or lean their sorry asses."
Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell also shared a similar sentiment towards the frenzy surrounding Paltrow. "Author's worst nightmare: sitting next to Gwyneth at a signing. Hysterical," she tweeted. Fellow author Jay McInerney also took to social media. "Author's night at East Hampton Library highjacked by movie stars with ghost-written cookbooks," tweeted McInerney, referencing the New York Times' multiple allegations that Paltrow does not actually write her own books. Paltrow has previously denied the paper's claims, tweeting: "Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself." ~Alfonso Espina
