The other day Martha Stewart attended Gwyneth Paltrow's cookbook release party and tweeted, "Is gwyneth the next martha?" Was Martha being sarcastic? Truthful? Maybe a little of both? Tone sometimes doesn't transfer well on Twitter.
And the New York Post asked that very same question today, consulting an anonymous lifestyle- brand expert, food fest honcho Lee Schrager, and "journalist" Allen Salkin who actually said, "Martha is your crafty aunt, and so in the family of food celebrities, I could see Gwyneth as your slightly kooky but sweet sister."
So is Gwyneth Paltrow the next Martha Stewart? Gwyneth might have a cookbook under her belt, but is she the next palatial-farm-estate-owning business magnate/ex-model/cookbook author/friend-of-Oprah/TV show host/ex-con/lifestyle guru?
Anything's possible, and our magic eight ball kept saying "Better not tell you now." So go, vote now in the poll!
