The Gwyneth Paltrow media onslaught continues today, with a Talk of the Town piece in The New Yorker about the wisp of diamond vapor's new cookbook. The piece is mostly the usual assemblage of celebrity friends fawning over her culinary acumen, we learn nothing new, but there is one truly amazing tidbit.

Paltrow greeted people by the door, holding a glass of cucumber water. Her mother, Blythe Danner, arrived.

"Hi, Mommy," Paltrow said.

That kind of says it all, doesn't it? [New Yorker, photo via Billy Farrell/Billy Farrell Agency]
