“GP [what the Goop community calls Paltrow] is a f **king extortionist.”
So, what the Goop were Goopers so upset about?
The unnecessary costs, for starters. Attendees were reportedly urged to book rooms through the lifestyle site at $1,300 for two nights at the Kimpton Fitzroy London Hotel, but some later discovered that rates for that weekend started at $250 a night.
To be fair, the Goop rooms were suites with a gluten-free (obviously) breakfast included. However, the rest of the festivities apparently left much to be desired.
The weekend featured a “health summit” where the actress, who was surrounded by security guards, shared Goop-esque tips like how “creativity with your hands is like channeling God” and how to “hydrate mindfully.” She also shared a workout with her trainer, Tracy Anderson.
Still, some devotees were disappointed by the Goop Goddess’ lack of involvement. One guest said the Avengers: Endgame star “did the minimum””and skipped out on some of the events, claiming:
“Gwyneth acts like she’s a health goddess, but actually she’s a pretentious, greedy extortionist. 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.”
Never meet your heroes, we guess?
A site rep defended the event, telling press the true value of the weekend was over $8,000 because of the free perks attendees received — including golden facials, “far-infrared gemstone therapy,” and health panels not connected to Goop.

The spokes-gooper also defended Gwynny, continuing:
“In addition to walking around the summit, she 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!’”
Hmmm… maybe they haven’t gotten through all the comments yet?
