Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba Feuding?
“Gwyn Appsolutely Irked By Alba,” reads a punny headline in the new issue of Star, which claims, “Gwyneth Paltrow is wishing she could consciously uncouple herself from her latest TV project, now that Jessica Alba has joined the cast.” The magazine explains, “The Goop guru is starring in a new ‘Shark Tank’-style reality show for Apple TV called ‘Planet of the Apps’ and was livid to learn that producers brought on Alba, who is set to become a billionaire thanks to her household goods line, The Honest Company.”
A so-called “insider” claims to the tabloid, “Gwyneth hates that Jessica has been so much more successful. Honest absolutely dwarfs what Gywn has done with Goop.” Now, according the outlet, “producers are loving the tension” between the two businesswomen. Adds the alleged snitch, “Jessica can be really snotty — that’s why they hired her. These two aren’t going to play nice, and it’ll be a ratings gold mine.”
But Paltrow and Alba have been “playing nice” for ages. In fact, a rep for Paltrow exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “Gwyneth is very good friends with Jessica and has been for years. She is thrilled that she joined ‘Planet of the Apps.'” Frankly, it’s beginning to seem like Star has something against the actress, since the tabloid falsely claimed in August that Paltrow was feuding with Winona Ryder. Both mean-spirited tales were erroneous.
