Blind Items Revealed

July 29, 2013

This A list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner was at a party this past week. Apparently the host of the party had red wine which our actress loves. What our actress did not love was the fact that she recognized that the bottles were only about $20 a bottle. The host spent what she could afford. The actress sent someone to go buy two cases of wine that averaged about $250 a bottle and presented them to the hostess and said, "Here you go. Serve this instead. It is either this or I will leave. i can't drink the stuff you put out."

I guess this is technically a kindness blind.

Seven of Eleven said...

Call me, Goop!

Katie said...

Uuuuugggghhhh

Tara said...

Trashier than the $20 wine. Bringing bottles as a gift is fine, but to do what she did is tasteless.

The Real Dragon said...

I mean at least she bought the bottle. I guess.

What time are the items suppose to end? gotta wake up early manana

Tyger Lilly said...

I would've told her that I knew that and took that into account when choosing the wine.

Murielle said...

Why oh why the host didn't keep serving the cheap wine?

B. Profane said...

She couldn't think ahead to bring the wine she likes and present it as a gift to the host? If you can only drink three-figure vino, that would be the sensible, non-rude thing to do as a matter of course.

Im just sayin said...

Shouldn't she just be glad she was actually invited to a party???

Steampunk Jazz said...

Lol.

Sugar said...

Why in heaven would she attend a party where the host coukd only affird $20 bottles of wine? Pfffftttt

TalksTooMuch said...

Oh wait, I thought we all had Reese down as a lock. And how dis shw know it was that cheap?

urban chaos said...

Don't let the door hit goopy... Host/ess should have decanted the wine and served the cheap stuff and stashed the rest.

sandybrook said...

we all knew GOOP was this bitch.

OTOH we have 10 hrs left to go here and at 4 reveals an hour we may be at August 4th when the Entybot shuts down

Freya said...

How does GOOP know about $20 bottles of wine?
Did it say Kroger on the label?

Alita said...

Maybe it was all role-play, and Chris Martin was looking on from the side with his penis in someone's mouth.

RoxSteady Betty said...

real lushes drink any kind of wine...

Sugar said...

Jeez it looks like auntliddy broke into my body and typed that with my fingers.

Murielle said...

because she knows it all. she has an exquisite taste in all the finest things in life. or something like that...

Seven of Eleven said...

@Sugar, LOLOLOL! I almost spit out my $2.99 wine!

Krissie said...

Okay. So leave.

Steampunk Jazz said...

"I bought 2 cases, be sure the rest of the guests aren't getting poured from my bottles. I'm Sooo sensitive to the sulphides that your che..less expensive wine has.."

sandybrook said...

Here I am happy when Im drinking Oak Leaf from WalMart

Serena said...

I'd serve her wine but I'd make sure to spit in her glass before I gave it to her.

What a bitch! How insulting to her hostess who is to be commended for not punching her in the face.

Count Jerkula said...

I'm interested in the left overs. Did Goop take 1/2 case of wine home with her, or leave it for the host? I can't call her a cunt w/o knowing that. It wouldn't be fair.

witwritergirl said...

Unless you have a legitimate health reason to not do so, you eat and drink what the hostess serves. Dear lord, she has no class.

mastik8 said...

I would have let her leave and then gone straight to the paps and blabbed the story all over creation.

Sprink said...

You're all forgetting how competitive and judgmental it is in the world of celebrity. I reckon Gwynnie saved the friend from embarrassment. People are evil, and she took the hit for her friend.

JW said...

What party would GP have been at where the host could only afford the $20 wine. I doubt that she hangs out with the normal folk.

MISCH said...

Goop you can come to dins any time

Princess Nobody said...

Perhaps a Traci Anderson party?

Renoblondee said...

@sandy I have 2 bottles of that in my fridge, what?
I think this blind is a kindness too. heehee

Babbitty Snob said...

I can only hope the hostess then said, "Darling...Thank you so much. Let me get your coat. My love to your mother."

snookiemonster said...

Who was the hostess?

hothotheat said...

How in the world does Goopy know someone who's so poor she can only afford $20 per bottle wine?

FS said...

Call me when Gwyneth says 'I can't stand your $20 plain white T, let me order you a case of $95 tshirts so I don't have to look at you.'

NATHANIEL MANELLA said...

bet she didn't even taste it before deeming it undrinkable. Hostess should have take the wine in the back and then poured her the cheap stuff. Dollars to donuts the bitch wouldn't even know the difference.

texas rose said...

Was she at this party while Martin was getting blown by Bosworth?

Sherry said...

LOL Texas! Truth, you simply cannot discern a more expensive wine beyond the first bottle anyway. She's a snobby idgit!

TeeTee said...

So where was she in mid-July? lol

kj said...

oh please, goopy, i invite you to my house. i won't even bother with the 20 shit. you get irish rose i will purchase already opened from a wino.

texas rose said...

Sherry - I was about to make a comment similar to yours (except many 'wine snobs' cannot even discern the first bottle's true quality) and then remembered the earlier blind and when given a choice, I will always go smutty.:)

Sugar said...

Who was it that pours cheap wine into expensive bottles to fool her friends?

texas rose said...

MiMi?

Moonmaid said...

What an ignoramus. You can get some great wine for $20 a bottle. And if she hated the wine, she could have arranged for the expensive stuff in a much nicer way.

cowbulls said...

Gwyneth is very lucky something really bad didn't happen to her that night. Very few juries would convict that hostess for darn near anything she did or arranged after that moment.

bellaluna said...

Such a pretentious snot.

MissInfo said...

You can get great wine for under $20 a bottle. I love The Middle Sister, Cupcake, Frog's Leap, and even Yellowtail lines of wine. There are just so many...no need in being such a nasty wine snob! So does she think she's a sommelier now?!

Glitter said...

That was crass and ill-mannered.

NaughtyNurse said...

Such an insufferable twat. Good for her husband for cheating on her.

Brenda L said...

Shouldn't she be drinking purified water anyway???

anon said...

The most surprising thing about this is that someone actually invited her to a party! She's so obnoxious

The Actress said...

The host should have planned ahead and had some Frenchesque labels whipped up, and affixed those to the cheapie bottles ... I doubt Goopy would even notice the difference between a $20, and $250, bottle of wine. Insufferable twat (whose 'Mom Jeans' were just heinous!!!).

The Actress said...

@anon - I know, right? What sort of small talk could you even engage in with her?

AKM said...

Winking Owl from ALDI, yo! It'll do when it's a tough month. ;-)

Sandy said...

You would not believe how cheap certain really wealthy, high-profile, well-connected people are. What Paltrow did was rude, but so was the person in NYC or Hollywood who probably has lots of money but still served cheap wine at a party (and you KNOW Paltrow doesn't mix with the peasants so it had to be someone at her economic level).

Actually, I can see Martha Stewart doing something like this back in the day.

Tina Mallette said...

I thought I was middle class but I must be white trash because I would not consider $20 cheap - my favourite Pinot Grigio, from Italy and very popular amongst white wine drinkers around here, is now $17.95 up from $16.95, and it is carried in the Vintages section of our government run Liquor Stores, that means it's not just any old plonk, a bunch of wine experts have given it a seal of approval. Now of course the restaurants sell it for $40 or more dollars. I dare say that most people couldn't tell the difference from a $250 dollar wine and a $20 dollar wine except perhaps in the case of champagne. And even the higher end champagnes are from $160 - $250 a bottle,

Good for Paltrow for her liver to be pickled with higher end fermented grapes or made by people who are just good at getting suckers to buy their wine that cost the same to make as the $20 bottle.

Alexa Rose said...

After today's reveals I like the Goop even less than before.

The Actress said...

I'm thinking the party was boring Jennifer Aniston's party a month or so ago ...

MadLyb said...

Even when she's being kind she's insufferable.

FlirtyChick74 said...

1) I took it as GP saying it in a joking manner.
2) Anyone that buys enough wine can price out the bottle. You would be amazed at how people are screwed over at restaurants. There are restaurants that try and pass off cheap wine as top shelf wine.
3) While it's nice that the host offered any wine at all, the host should have told her thank you but don't do it. It's the host's party. You wouldn't tell a restaurant what wine to have on their wine list or what to pair with the food.
4) Hoarding is incredibly rude. I hate when people do that. I generally share what I'm given unless someone specified it is for me only.

meltz911 said...

Kinda maybe? If she liked it, should the price matter? Maybe she should have gotten a bunch of $250 stickers and put them on the bottles for her friend. Who could be friends with a mess like that?

FlirtyChick74 said...

@Sandy: I agree

FlirtyChick74 said...

Actually, it says a lot that the host was offering $20 wine at this party. Usually some wealthy people offer "cheap" wine and awful food to people they tolerate but don't like well enough to do better. So basically she doesn't rank well.

Beth said...

The blind says the host spent what she could afford.

I don't think this is the worst thing Goop has done...I'd take the wine and run, let the rest of my guests enjoy her wine.

Wonder how Blythe would explain this behavior away?

Jessie said...

My favourite red wine is less than $20 and I've never met anyone who didn't like it. Deeeeeelish!

deb said...

she makes me want to spew on her $95 white t-shirt.

Selena Martins said...

That is actually very nice of her. I really hate cheap red wine, tates like vinegar to me

Rach Around said...

She must've been confused that the wine was being served out of a box. Goop doesn't know what she's missing if she's never played Goon Bag of Fortune.

Topper Madison said...

I am SO adding her to my guest lists from now on! She's going to save me a bundle!!

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

Works for me...come on in girl, let's party on the good stuff lol

ms snarky said...

the hostess should have emptied an expensive bottle (not down the drain!!!), poured the $20 red in it, then served Goop from that. She'd never know the difference, but she'd go on and on about how great it was.

zili amazo said...

is this 'blind' supposed to be a critism of gwynny ,'cos i think it was a really nice thing to do.

gr8p said...

I totally believe this
