Gotham Magazine Sitting Pretty with David Muir Interview

Lucky? Genius? Both? That’s one way the question can be posed today about Gotham magazine‘s editorial powers-that-be.

Tomorrow, two days after David Muir was announced as Diane Sawyer‘s successor, the publication’s Summer Issue will arrive at newsstands with a long-lead Muir interview. Sawyer would have been well-timed in this context. But Muir, sub-headlined ‘Ratings Magnet’ and ‘What’s His Next Move?’ That’s out of the editorial-calendar park.

For the print version of the article by Gotham regular contributor Patrick Pacheco, there’s a shot of Muir on the ABC rooftop in front of satellite dishes, full page-left, across from the headline/sub-headline pictured above. We assume that any perceived echoes of movie characters essayed by Gwyneth Paltrow and William Hurt are strictly coincidental.

A Crash Course in ‘Conscious Uncoupling’

Thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Goop post about her decision to break up with husband Chris Martin, we along with many others today are educating ourselves about the phrase used to frame the announcement – “conscious uncoupling.” It’s a real, clinical term; via The Guardian, we were led to this clip from Southern California radio show Cutting Edge Consciousness.

There’s lots of great advice in the hour-long conversation above guided by co-host Freeman Michaels. Psychotherapist and author Katherine Woodward Thomas says for example that the first big mistake made by people engaged in “unsconscious” uncoupling is to move from “soul mate to soul hate,” and feed that anger through their network of friends.

App Claims to Scoop Vanity Fair by Publishing Gwyneth Paltrow Affair Allegation

proxyTypically, the “secrets” shared on Whisper — an app that allows uses to share their thoughts anonymously — are from whiny, overly emotional teens confused by the cruel game that is love. However, the app just posted a bombshell: That Gwyneth Paltrow is cheating on her husband Chris Martin with Kevin Yorn, a lawyer.

The note is especially interesting because Graydon Carter, editor of Vanity Fair, recently released a long-winded explanation of why Vanity Fair didn’t follow through with a big Paltrow story that had the actress upset. If you recall, Paltrow didn’t want the piece published, but no one knew exactly why. Carter, in his note, explained that there wasn’t much to the story so he decided to stall (read: Paltrow’s pressure on the magazine worked).

Neetzan Zimmerman, the editor-in-chief of Whisper (we suppose an editor is needed when you’re dealing with millions of tweens) claimed that the app’s Paltrow secret is exactly what kept Vanity Fair from publishing its piece on the actress. Not only that, but the secret was vetted.

Vanity Fair Publishing Story on Gwyneth Paltrow That She Hates

Vanity Fair is going through with a story on Gwyneth Paltrow that she apparently hates. You never knew the magazine was so gangster, did you?

It all started last year, when Paltrow emailed friends telling them not to cooperate with the glossy for a story about her. More recently, when Graydon Carter — Vanity Fair’s editor-in-chief — was asked about the drama, he brushed it off. “In any given week, I can expect to hear from a disgruntled subject in Hollywood, Washington, or on Wall Street,” he explained. “That’s the nature of the beast.”

Why does Paltrow want the article killed? Page Six says it’s because it will speculate that Paltrow had an affair with Miami billionaire Jeff Soffer in 2008. Paltrow has been married to Coldplay’s Chris Martin since 2003.

Whatever the piece reveals, Paltrow’s fuss is one of the main reasons it’s being published. “Well, she sort of forced my hand,” Carter told the Times of London.

Picture Carter rollin.

Celebrities Consider Vanity Fair’s Ass Kissing Not Good Enough Anymore

Actors and actresses — people who are paid millions to read what someone else has written for them while playing pretend — are upset with Vanity Fair. Apparently the magazine’s ass kissing just hasn’t been up to snuff lately, and so some Hollywood big shots are refusing to cooperate on articles.

It started with Gwyneth Paltrow, who was so mad about a planned Vanity Fair article that she emailed friends asking them not to speak with anyone from the magazine. The New York Times reports that her move has led to even more pushback. “Everyone grovels to Graydon [Carter] and other writers there and covets invitations to their parties,” Leslee Dart, a publicist for Tom Hanks and others, told the Times. “I don’t think people care the way they used to anymore. It’s not important to them to grovel as they once did.”

Ross Mathews Gets Ready to Mingle

Twelve years after Ross Mathews started doing remote bits for Jay Leno, he’s finally got his own talk show. Hello Ross!, a weekly half-hour pop culture mash-up that sort of picks up where the Kevin Smith Hulu program Spoilers left off, debuts Friday at 10 p.m. on E! And Mathews says he is staying true to a couple of early career tips from Leno.

“Jay’s initial advice to me was always be on time and always be nice to the crew,” Mathews tells FishbowlNY via telephone. “That’s in my nature anyway, but I have always followed that advice. On Hello Ross!, I’m the first here, last to go; I know every first-last name, birthdays. It’s important to create that sort of atmosphere.”

Among Mathews’ favorite Leno segments is a 2008 remote with the late Steve Irwin. He says people still come up to him today and yell “Pineapple!”, which was Mathews’ code word for whenever he needed Irwin to reclaim an animal – pronto.

Gwyneth Paltrow Tells Friends Not to Speak with Vanity Fair

Gwyneth Paltrow is making things difficult for Vanity Fair. The New York Post is reporting that the actress is telling anyone that knows her not to cooperate with the magazine, which is working on a cover story about her. Apparently Paltrow didn’t think recent Vanity Fair celebrity puff pieces were puffy enough, so she doesn’t want any part of the article.

Despite Paltrow’s opposition, Vanity Fair remains undaunted. “The magazine said it was going to proceed with the story without her, so her team has been asking people not to talk at all,” a source explained to the Post.

We don’t understand what all the fuss is about. Celebrity profiles are always favorable. And besides, if she’s worried that this article is going to make people say “You know, this Paltrow lady sure seems entitled, out-of-touch and egotistical,” it might be a little late for that.

Hollywood Plays Host to ‘Coolest Person on the Planet’

Iron Man 3 co-star Gwyneth Paltrow was crowned by People magazine as the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” just ahead of last night’s big splashy El Capitan Theatre premiere. In this red carpet photo, she is firmly in the clutches of  the person we think owns the “Coolest Person on the Planet” honors.

People Names Gwyneth Paltrow ‘World’s Most Beautiful Woman’

People has named Gwyneth Paltrow the world’s most beautiful woman. Paltrow, upon hearing the meaningless news, said, “I can’t believe it. I kept thinking, ‘This can’t be true.’ I’ve never been more surprised or flattered.”

To celebrate the honor, Paltrow will hand-pick several Indonesian children to knit a life size replica of her face that will soon be available for purchase via Goop, for $47,500.
