When we last checked in on occasional actress and web newsletter mogul Gwyneth Paltrow, she was throwing a burning duck that had caught fire in her kitchen into a swimming pool. Today she took a break from turning the world into her personal karaoke room to send out the latest edition of her precious little newsletter, Goop, and boy is it a doozy.
In this edition, the woman married to that whiny guy from Coldplay displays a Herculean lack of self-awareness when she offers up some spring gardening advice she learned from … wait for it … her “friend” José.
Spring is springing and it’s the perfect time to start planting herbs and veggies for the summer. I got a great how-to lesson from my friend José who is an expert in the garden. Below you will find tons of fun ideas on how to plant a spring garden of your own, even in a New York City apartment!
Our friends at Beekman Farm sent us a set of 10 Heirloom Vegetables from D. Landreth Seed Co. for us to plant. Our resident gardening expert, José Marqués, suggested we plant several of them in a mini-greenhouse so that the warm, humid air would prompt the seeds to germinate.
HAHAHAHA …”resident gardening expert.” Does she not have anyone close to her with a lick of common sense who cares about her enough to say, “Um, Gwynnie…you’re already perceived by EVERYONE to be the epitome of out-of-touch white privilege, so you might not want to avoid the who Mexican gardener stereotype thing in your newsletter — just say that his name is John or something”?
Nope, apparently not. Or maybe Gwyneth did receive such sage advise and chose to ignore it?! I wonder if she also had José do the artwork on her graffiti truck…
Regardless, Gwyneth Paltrow must be stopped!
