Gwyneth Paltrow latest addition to her Goop Store: a $950 shot glass, of course

There are several piece of Gwyneth Paltrow news to cover, and I’m not sure what I was waiting for. I guess I just go through phases where Gwyneth kind of exhausts me and I try not to cover her so much. Thankfully, Gwyneth’s two-month-long media extravaganza is pretty much over – her book has been promoted (successfully) and Iron Man 3 is a huge hit, so Gwyneth can go back to being someone we don’t cover every single day, right? Right. Hopefully.

So Gwyneth added some more elitist stuff to her Goop store and OMG, this might be the most epic one yet. Gwyneth added a number of high-end items from Foundwell – you can see the page here. There are a pair of decanters, a silver tray, an art deco ice bucket and much more. All of the items are sterling silver and all of the items look gorgeous and high-end, of course. They would make lovely housewarming gifts if you were a millionaire and you were only friends with millionaires. But here’s my favorite item:

$950 for a silver SHOT GLASS. A fancy shot glass, of course, but REALLY? Think about that. You’re paying a cool thousand dollars (with shipping & handling and taxes) for a SHOT GLASS. Classic Goop. How are the silver ice tongs only $375? That’s a relative bargain compared to the shot glass. Sidenote: Does anyone else think it’s kind of weird that all of these super-high-end boutique companies want to be this closely associated with Gwyneth? Granted, she can get them publicity, but if I was running a company that sold $5000 decanters, I don’t think I would want my stuff sold on Gwyneth’s Goop Shop.

And here’s part of the interview Gwyneth did with some Aussie DJs Kyle and Jackie O. They recorded the whole thing. Goop is incredibly nasal and she’s getting her drink on. I have to give her credit for being free enough to participate in this kind of liquor-soaked interview, and I’ll also give her credit for being game, funny, bitchy and snotty. She’s talking trash about the Met Gala and her 1970s bush, etc. Skip ahead to like 4 minutes if you want to avoid all of the Aussie lead-up drama. Around the 10-minute mark, Goop talks about her bush.

    that’s amazing.
    she’s so vile.

  2. Daahling says:

    See, now she’s just doing it on purpose. If I had $950, £,€, whatever, to blow on shopping, I certainly would not spend it on that reflicted little shot glass. How peasanty of me. But for real, everyone, she is intentionally doing *this*.

  3. Eleonor says:

    Who is buying this crap???

    • Micki says:

      Nouveaux riches of course!

      She has never catered to the MASSES.
      And the OLD MONEY knows all about knives, forks, timbles, flutes and water bowls, proper napkins, ets.
      It’s a lot more stylish to inherit them rather than buy them brand new.

  4. Amelia says:

    950? For a shot glass?
    If I’m paying nearly a grand for something that’s function doesn’t even last as long as my ex-boyfriend, it had better bloody be diamond encrusted.

  5. lem says:

    ugh stop talking about your pubic hair. no one is interested in it. she’s so gross. her children must be mortified.

    • Aussie girl says:

      Her husband must be mortified!!! I’m sooooo sure her marriage is not what it appears to be…..

      • Norman Bates' Mother says:

        I’m waiting for the divorce announcement any time now. I know Chris is not a saint but he is pretty much the same man she married – he already was extremely private, moody, arrogant and always on the road when they got married while Her Goopy Highness is a different person than Gwyneth Paltrow from a few years back. I remember how private she used to be – she never talked about her marriage, barely talked bout her children and she showed her elitist and privilaged upbringing by trying to appear classy no matter what (it was sometimes laughable but still better than what she’s doing now). The foot-in-the-mouth syndrom plus Kardashian level fame-hunger are completely new. I would be so embarassed if she was my family. Her children are still young but they will have a hard time in middle school and high school. Teenagers can be cruel for no reason at all and those two are named Apple and Moses and have a mother who can’t shut up about her pubic hair and the state of her colon. Google will be their biggest enemy.

      • Liv says:

        I wonder why she’s so open now. I mean look at Beyonce, when Jay and her got married nobody really knew! And now she’s posting pictures of their daughter and stuff. Maybe there’s a new PR strategy we don’t know about? So weird.

      • DailyNightly says:

        I think Chris probably ignores her and this is her way of getting back at him.

  6. moon says:

    I don’t hate her, but it would be nice to have the kind of money she does. She does need to stop being all whiny about how much she’s suffered in life though – we all go through family losses and marriage issues, but most of us don’t have the luxuries she takes for granted.

    • annaloo. says:

      I don’t think she has any manners about her money – talking about it, showing it off, being glib about what people can afford — all at a time when so many Americans are more stressed about it than usual. She and Beyoncé have a common bond of lacking taste, class and are tactlessness about their materialism.

      But what can you do? She ain’t a lady, which isn’t a crime within itself, but she’s a bore (which TOTALLY is)!

  7. SusieQ2 says:

    Why would she even deign to be interviewed by Australians? I mean, everyone knows the place is populated by descendants of uncouth convicts deported from the UK and Ireland!! How beneath her!

    Disclaimer: I’m kidding! I have relatives in Australia and love the place. ;)

  8. Lady Satan says:

    She needs to stop trying so hard.

    First a $950 shot glass (& all the other overpriced crap she flogs) then she’s all down with the peasant types in Oz?

    She’s trying far too hard to be all things to all people – just shut up, do your job, go to your parties, and … did I say shut up? It bears repeating – shut up already!

    • Faye says:

      Exactly this. I’ve come to the point of enjoying Gwyneth tremendously because she’s so ridiculous, but I think people might actually like her more if she wasn’t trying so hard, all the time. One minute she’s selling crazily-priced items on her site and giving interviews about her dinner parties where all they talk about is “politics and art and history and literature,” and the next she’s showing up on naked on the red carpet and wisecracking about her personal grooming and sexual anger management techniques. Make up your mind, Gwyneth — are you an aloof, superior, privileged duchess or a funny, earthy, advice-giving person who doesn’t mind mucking about with the peasants?

    • Nev says:

      she seemed sooooo kool and CHIC in the ninties and on…now its really try hard.

  9. janie says:

    Well…. That was a bizarre interview. I believe Gwen has too much time on her hands? I don’t get what was punk about the dress, must be me.

  10. allons-y alonso says:

    Oh, for the love of….Kyle and Jackie O?! This is going to sound awful but i really don’t care- I despise these 2 mouth breathing bottom feeders.They are an embarrassment to Australians and decency everywhere

  11. Ellie66 says:

    No…just no ;) Pretentious dry white toast only 950.00 a slice.

  12. annaloo. says:

    Screw Goop! I can beat her $950 shot glass. Last week, I handled a $12,000 enameled goblet used in the last two services to the Czar Nicolas II of Russian. Put that in your kale and choke on it, Gwyneth.

    • Daahling says:

      “Ooh daahling, to quote my dear friend William Fárrell, if you are not first, you’re last. And only handled, you said? My children receive their nightly unicorn tear drop in vintage Napoleon goblets. How gauche of you. The Met Gala sucked, did I mention that?”– Gwyneth Paltrow

      • annaloo. says:

        Ah hahaha! I’m game! — and I would reply:

        “…but Gwynnie, you DO know who the last Czar of Russian was. I know you’re not exactly the academic, what with barely graduating out of school, and needing your daddy’s friend Michael Douglas to grease your way into USC.. but SURELY, you’ve researched old money European families. The GHOSTS of Anastasia, Olga, Tatiana, Maria and little Alexei linger in that goblet. The GAUCHE of bad taste lingers in your – ahem – shot glass. But good for you! Beyoncé’s purchased a set from you of course!”

    • Daahling says:

      She wouldn’t know what else to say because normally, peasants are not granted enough time to respond. I had no idea she went to film school. That’s almost as bad as the Franco.

  13. Cody says:

    Why do I get the feeling that she is the only one in her family that would actually drink from a $950 shot glass. I can’t believe her mother, Blythe Danner or genius husband, Chris Martin, would even care about such things.

    • annaloo. says:

      That’s just it: She doesn’t come from old money, though she likes to act it. Her father was a kid from Brooklyn, her mother’s side descended from housekeepers in Barbados and her husband is a middle class kid who made good on his talent.

      Go figure how this woman carries on like she is a descendent of the Astors or Vanderbilts…Anderson Cooper is a true descendent of the Vanderbilt family, but you wouldn’t know.

      Compare and contrast.

  14. MonicaQ says:

    …I got nothing other than, “Why do you have to play a not bad Pepper Potts and then go be insufferable?”

    This just makes me think back to this weekend, I broke a vintage Mt. Dew shot glass. Worth? Thirty five bucks. In my tequila state, I paid the man, apologized profusely (to which he didn’t want to accept the money and handed it back to my husband while I was too inebriated to notice) and continued on. I can only imagine if it was a $950 shot glass but I only hang with plebs being a pleb myself so no chance of breaking that thing!

  15. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Does anybody get The New Yorker? They had a pretty funny satirical piece called “Most Gwyneth” told from Goop’s POV. It was basically about how hard she works to be the most hated celeb.

    • catt says:

      Original Kitten….Yes I read that in the New Yorker. It was great wasn’t it?
      There was also a big write up in USA Today about her and how she knows she is a ‘lightening rod’ but she doesn’t care. And then she went on and on about how honored she is to be the Most Beautiful and how sweet and proud Chris was about it. *gag*

  16. Dedrie says:

    Chris? HUH? He’s a solo genius.. but, I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed a real man.. any reaaaaaaaaal man who actually touches and isn’t embarrassed to be seen with me.. aren’t you lusty guys impressed by my peek a boo strip shows?

  17. lady mary. says:

    notice the words “just a thimble full”, emphasizing that steel bin’s grandeur ,ugh ,i doubt anyone ,loaded with cash would even bother to buy it ,what are they gonna say we bought it frm goop online store of garbage,if i was loaded enuff to spent an extravagant sum of money ,i would choose an antique dealer or a credible shop if at all i was buying for the “ooh’s and aah’s
    i happened to watch a documentary on Anna wintour ,she was commenting on how getting actresses for cover is difficult bcoz they dont get the shot right in once chance ,causing the magazine to loose money and she mentioned very clearly THAT GOOP HAD TO GET HER RESHoOT DONE 3 TIMES JUST FOR ONE COVER SHOT,i could’nt stop clapping my hands with glee :)

  18. annaloo. says:

    You know Beyoncé has bought 20

  19. Guest 1 says:

    I am a Pre-K teacher and Goop
    reminds of the girls who like to play princess and have tea parties in the housekeeping corner. They are totally in their own world, Goop has never left that world.

  20. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Sometimes, crap can be expensive.

  21. Green is Good says:

    Again with the TMI about her bush.
    Lord, well will the horror end?

  22. truthful says:

    she is so exhausting and extra, I couldn’t bring myself to listen to that interview.

    I wish she’d stop talking about her “snatch” it doesn’t make her cool, I’m convinced she is a wicked witch.

    I want to call her a bunch of vile names but I do not want to get in trouble, so I’ll bow out gracefully now.

  23. The Original G says:

    I have one just like it.

    It’s engraved with “Ceasars Palace.”

  24. jamee draper says:

    I am always in awe that this woman, who acts like bread and meat are the worst things that can happen to the human body, never has a problem smoking or drinking when it’s offered.She’ll take any drink available but if you offered her a grill cheese she would be terrified to eat it.But she’s all about health,right? Come on.

  25. Ginger says:

    If I were to drop that much money it would be for camera equipment for my business (and I have spent that much at once) I can’t believe people would spend it on a shot glass! But then again rich folks also drop thousands for one dress they will only wear once!

  26. Mon says:

    They struggle to sell for those ridiculous prices so guess they are desperate!

  27. Dawn says:

    A shot glass for $950.00 is way too much but I don’t believe that I am Goops’ customer. I believe the people she sells to would look at that as being $9.50 so this really doesn’t bother me. This is a gal who has been wealthy since the day she was born and so if she is somewhat hypocritical it should come as no surprise. A cigg and a drink keep her thin, meat and potatoes will not. She has never been poor so she doesn’t know what it is like to have to really work and to have to stretch a pay check. No excuses for her and her boorish behavior but these types of people will ever get what all the fuss is about because they never had monetary worry in their lives. She could never be a single mother and live off what most single mother’s live off. But it would be fun to watch her try!! GP living off $50,000.00 before taxes can you imagine the drama?

  28. Emily says:

    I don’t begrudge rich people spending money on themselves and their friends, so long as they also spend a lot on charitable causes and do good in the world.

    What good has snotty 13-year old Goop ever done? Also, the way she brandishes her money about is very declassé. She’s like an Edith Wharton anti-heroine. But dumber.

  29. Aqua says:

    She was born rich,raised rich.Me,I’m just happy if I could afford a cheap bottle of wine for the weekend.

  30. jamee draper says:

    I swear even if I were a millionaire I wouldn’t buy this kind of crap.That’s 950 bucks I could send to a shelter or something.Nothing wrong with wanting nice things,but this is just ridiculous.

  31. c'est la vie says:

    I’m currently taking donations – so i can buy a set of these priceless, much needed shot glasses…

    That I’m going to use for tequila shooters.

  32. DIANE says:

    Pink is definitely not her color. Dress reminds me of the Carol Burnett Scarlett O’Hara skit where she’s wearing a dress with a curtain rod in it. Converted drapes or maybe an old bedspread. Gad, she’s insecure. She’s hurling distractions at us on a daily basis now so we don’t look behind the curtain and see how empty she really is.

  33. Laura says:

    I realize that people are free to spend their money as they see fit but spending almost $1,000 on a shot glass seems rather obnoxious to me…

    Especially when you ponder how much the person who actually made it will earn –makes me think of the poor people in Bangladesh who recently lost their lives (or were injured) making crap that they themselves could not likely afford (the minimum monthly earnings there is about $38). I wonder if Gwyneth ever thinks of how snotty, superficial she comes across as being or how completely dense she is to how life is for those who work hard every day for very little to make the garbage she peddles on her self important website? Probably not. She is much too busy being her lady-like self as she yammers on about her privates.

    She seems about as clued into the real world as the Duchess of Cambridge.

  34. Jayna says:

    LOL She even dissed the punk theme, saying: And everyone was dressed in punk. Aren’t we all too old for that? I’m paraphrasing. Get those digs in, Gwyneth.

  35. JayL says:

    I just know someone will come on here and post about how all us peasants are just “jealous” of Gwyneth, and we aren’t in her league or social class and could never understand….blah, blah, blah.

  36. if you google brad and gwyneth nude you will see that gwyneth does rock a 70′s vibe. (brad and gwyneth were papped when they were on vacation.
