In Gwyneth Paltrow's latest GOOP email newsletter, she fires back at Julia Moskin's accusation that she used a ghostwriter for her cookbook, My Father's Daughter:

I don't normally address false reporting in the media but this week I would like to clarify something. Last week, The New York Times inferred that I used a ghostwriter on my cookbook, My Father's Daughter, which to me means someone else wrote the recipes and the text. That is not the case. My Father's Daughter was a three year labor of love, a collection of the food I make and serve loved ones, an ode to my dad. I had lots of tremendous assistance with things like note taking, recipe testing, logistical planning, but the recipes and words are all mine and come from my heart.

Tomorrow Paltrow is going to be on the Rachael Ray Show to address the issue, as Rachael Ray was also accused of using ghostwriters. But this is a great case of two Famous People feeling slighted and revving up their media engines for damage control.
