Hollyweirdo Gwyneth Paltrow labeled an “extortionist” after her $5,700-per-head UK wellness summit

In my opinion, if you’re going to pay any kind of money to listen to anything Gwyneth Paltrow has to say, well, you get what you deserve.

From Daily Mail: Gwyneth Paltrow is under fire from attendees at her $5,700-a-head ‘In Goop Health’ wellness summit who say the event was nothing more than a two-day advertisement for the lifestyle brand.

The star-studded summit in at Hammersmith’s Re:Centre in London was billed as ‘a mind-body-soul reset’ where guests would hear health wisdom straight from Paltrow, including tips about ‘hydrating mindfully’ in a sound bath, ‘channeling God’ through creativity with your hands and a workout with her trainer Tracy Anderson.

However, some attendees have complained that the useful information and experiences were drowned out by relentless promos that extended beyond the designated Goop store.

The actress herself, known as GP in the Goop community, reportedly made very few appearances at the summit, and when she was there she was hidden behind a wall of security.

Paltrow hosted one seminar in which she offered helpful tips such as ‘creativity with your hands is like channeling God,’ how to ‘hydrate mindfully’ along with a sound bath, and a workout with her trainer Tracy Anderson.

‘Gwyneth acts like she’s a health goddess, but actually she’s a pretentious, greedy extortionist,’ a source told Page Six.

‘She had a ton of security . . . She was unapproachable. She did the minimum — a few fireside chats with Twiggy and Penelope Cruz, then she put on her Birkenstocks and snuck out . . . I was a huge fan of Gwyneth; now I feel like I have lost my faith in God.’

A Summit Pass for the main Saturday event cost £1,000 ($1,259) and a Wellness Weekender Package went for an eye-watering £2,500 to £4,500 ($3,148 to $5,667).

Some attendees who took organizers’ advice and booked their rooms at the luxe Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel through the Goop website for $1,300 for two nights later learned that they could have nabbed a room for as low as $250 if they booked elsewhere. The gluten free breakfast provided in rooms booked through Goop did little to make up for the perceived price discrepancy.

One guest told Page Six that a prominent British guest texted fellow attendees saying: ‘GP is a f***ing extortionist.’

Goop has maintained that the true value of the weekend exceeded $8,000 considering the freebies, including golden facials, ‘far-infrared gemstone therapy’ and health panels with experts unaffiliated with the brand.

British modeling icon Twiggy and actress Penelope Cruz joined the actress for a candid chat about Goop onstage.

Paltrow told spectators that the day was about creating ‘a new version of yourself’ before adding that change was possible in every human being.

A rep said of the event: ‘In addition to walking around the summit, [Paltrow] also hosted an intimate workout class with Tracy, followed by a panel, where she and Tracy answered attendee questions in an honest, casual setting. We have not received negative feedback. [It] was more along the lines of: “Thanks for an amazing weekend!”‘

Previous Goop summits in 2017 and 2018 were held in Los Angeles, and this was the first year it came to the United Kingdom.

Goop was launched in 2008 as a weekly newsletter crafted in Gwyneth’s kitchen, offering fans lifestyle recommendations, health-centric recipes, shopping discoveries, health products and fitness tips.

More than 10 years later, the company has grown into a massive empire worth a staggering $250million.

I hydrate mindfully every time I take a shower. Doesn’t cost me a thing. This is just snake oil and lucky charms, nothing new about that. What’s new is the emphasis on the absolute significance of SELF. The magnitude of her scam is indicative of the exponential growth of stupidity. “I was a huge fan of Gwyneth; now I feel like I have lost my faith in God.’ Anyone capable of making such an incomprehensibly stupid statement deserves to be ripped off. How is it possible to be a “huge fan” of nothing?

Just proves that it’s true – a fool and his money are soon parted.😇 How could anyone but a fool fall for this nonsense? People are always looking for a way to God, other than the One Way that God’s Word tells us. The unbelievers mock Christians for believing in some “magic man in the sky”, but consider those who believe in this tomfoolery to be wise.

Upon reading the post , “a fool and his money….” was the first thing to pop into my mind. I really don’t care if fools lose their money. I’m just disappointed that is going to such evil demented people. Oh well!

This is instructive in case anyone was wondering how NXIVM got their start. The fact that vain, empty people chase scams like this is living proof of how communism spreads. They live vicariously through those whose superficial lives of wretched excess appeals to them.

This is just an “infomercial” with an entry fee. Here, rub some of this on your body and you’ll turn into Cher! There is no shortage of idiots in our world.

Who would want to turn into Cher? Pete Buttplug maybe. Just got back from Wal-Mart and it seems everyone there wants to turn into Tess Holliday. Maybe she’ll start her own unwellness line, Tess Goop

Yeah, ours has a “Snack Aisle”. I call it Elephant Walk. They all emerge, stacks of chips and cookies overflowing the cart, with a six-pack of Diet Coke.

William, bite your tongue, turning into Cher would be a curse, and Buttplug would be a blasphemy, Beto? No, no! Please.

Alma, you have to admit the demonoids give us many choices. If you don’t like Peter Pan Buttplug or BetaBoy, there’s always Kamala, or Cory (an afro-queer from Jersey, just what the country needs), or Julian “Trannies are entitled to free abortions even if they can’t get pregnant” Castro..and the list goes on. There’s even Marianne Williamson the New Age con artist who will cleanse your spirit with her magic crystals. And if all else fails there’s Pedo Joe and Bernie The Red for the old fart demographic. Unfortunately none of them is qualified to run a garage sale. This… Read more »

How empty can anyone be to lose faith in God because of Paltrow? God is not channeled, God is inside each and every person that BELIEVES IN HIM. “Goop Health was created for the goofs at heart, and goop=gunk (filthy, sticky or greasy matter) was the du jour served.

Anyone who is stupid, and guilable enough to be bilked out of $5,000 plus to hear Palthrow extol the virtues of anything deserves to be fleeced. Really, how very ridiculous is that?

My sentiment precisely! Those who attended Paltrow’s “summit” not only are useful idiots, they are plain idiots, and as the saying goes: “A fool and her money are soon parted.”

I had to chastise Mom when she brought up Gwyneth & her site one day, asking her what made GP such an expert?

I’m just glad she didn’t spend anything on the site, which wouldn’t have made a bit of difference in whatever they were selling.

JP, you had mentioned your mother before. I don’t mean this to be insulting, but does she have senile dementia?

Jackie Puppet

No, she’s got some bleeding heart in her. She’s more of a JFK-era Democrat that doesn’t realize today’s Democrats have taken a hard-left turn in recent years. But she did support Bernie & his free health-care for all.

My folks’ hatred of Trump is “personal”. Dad’s a retired ironworker, and his beef with Trump stems from the time that Trump’s tower was going up in Chicago (Trump low-balling construction companies, etc.).

She’s a spoiled little princess that needs to be dethroned… Her actress mother was C-list at best…

She’s not an extortionist. Extortion is the obtaining of property from another induced by wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or fear, or under color of official right. No one forced any of the attendees to fork over these ridiculous sums of money to hear a two day infomercial. They all did so willingly. Rather, Paltrow is just a flimflam artist – a con woman. A flimflam is a trick or deception, especially a swindle or confidence game involving skillful persuasion or clever manipulation of the victim. Come to think about it, it sounds pretty much par for… Read more »
