Nothing says unpretentious fun like Author Night in The Hamptons. Especially when Gwyneth Paltrow shows up with her freaky-eyed Children of the Corn, her husband, Gay Beethoven, and an entourage of body guards and publicists and takes over the entire event. Gwyneth’s massive media presence pissed off her fellow authors who were forced to play second fiddle to the ex-pat and her cliche cookbook.
Since she arrived on the late side I had a chance to make some sales to new and repeat customers. Then the divinity in question arrived with hubby, children and a couple of massive bodyguards. The worshipers blocked my view of the whole world, abusing my tiny territory upon which to abandon their trash…” — Christina Oxenberg, another pompous author at the event trying to sound smart.
Somebody should mark this day down as the moment even the snooty literati turned their backs on Gwyneth. Now, she has nowhere left to turn, except to herself, which will only make her stronger.
