Gwyneth Paltrow, the taut, kale-filled stomach behind upscale lifestyle brand GOOP, was rejected as an editor for Yahoo Food, the New York Times reports, in an article that also broke the news that Yahoo Food exists.

Paltrow, whose money-losing newsletter/cookbook brand is a bible for residents of richer suburbs, sadly missed out on the prestigious position with the internet's 12th-ranked (as of May, according to the NYT) food website because Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer only hires bachelors of the arts and/or sciences.

The Times:

Even though the actress Gwyneth Paltrow had created a best-selling cookbook and popular lifestyle blog, Mayer, who habitually asked deputies where they attended college, balked at hiring her as a contributing editor for Yahoo Food. According to one executive, Mayer disapproved of the fact that Paltrow did not graduate college.

Paltrow studied anthropology at UC Santa Barbara before dropping out to win an Academy Award and make millions as an actress, a misstep from which her internet food writing career never recovered.

SUNY Plattsburgh alumna and Cherry Bombe founder Kerry Diamond, who owns three restaurants in Brooklyn, was named EIC of Yahoo Food in September.

Stay in school.
