Why is Gwyneth Paltrow Converting to Judaism?

By at 3:52 pm


Last we checked, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin were consciously uncoupling, recoupling, and uncoupling again. Now Gwyneth has dropped a new bombshell: she’s converting–to Judaism!

Wait a minute–wasn’t she already Jewish? Isn’t that’s why we’ve been covering the Gwyneth beat since Kveller’s inception? Well, Wikipedia confirms that her filmmaker dad, Bruce Paltrow, was a Jew, while her mother, Blythe Danner, is a Christian. Gwyneth was raised both Jewish and Christian, which she’s said, “was such a nice way to grow up.”

Page Six explains that since Gwyneth has taken an interest in Kabbalah several years ago, she’s been rediscovering her Jewish roots: Read the rest of this entry →

Literary Power Couple Jonathan Safran Foer & Nicole Krauss Split Up

By at 4:53 pm

The Kid-Dish: All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.Nicole-Jonathan

-It’s a sad day for Jewish lit fans everywhere. Literary power couple Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss legally separated–which means they broke up about a year ago and no one knew about it! I mean, there were whisperings about their $14.5 million Park Slope home going on the market (it didn’t sell), but no one had an inkling that this too-talented-for-words pair was even on the rocks. (Page Six)

-In happier news, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are (allegedly) consciously recoupling. Don’t know what else there is to say except, wasn’t it just yesterday that they were consciously uncoupling? Is there actually a way to unconsciously uncouple? (People)

-Speaking of conscious couples, Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen are very much together and spilled everything parenthood and their new baby Sid in People this week. The decidedly wanna-be Jewish actor said that becoming a dad was so emotional that he cried in the delivery room. (People)

-First Jewish “Bachelorette” ever Andi Dorfman went to France with her 11 remaining men in the latest episode of this season, and dealt with racism, mimes, and frog legs. Follow Kveller contributer Tova Ross‘ recaps of the show over at Jewcy. (Jewcy)

-Meanwhile, in news to be filed under Jewish celebrity parent “tzuris,” Gwyneth Paltrow announced on her website that she and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin are splitting up after 10 years together.

-J.P. Rosenbaum and former “Bachelorette” Ashley Herbert (who converted to Judaism for her hubby in 2011) are not only going strong, but are also expecting a child together. Congrats, Ashley and J.P.! (People)

-Courtney Kardashian and her Jewish hubby Scott Disick dress her daughter Penelope in son Mason‘s hand-me-downs, including his loafers and blazers. “I’ve even done a full suit for a full menswear look, like a Saint Laurent look.” she told reporters about her daughter’s gender-bending style. (People)

By at 3:40 pm

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

gwyneth paltrow goop- Thank you to the blogger who rounded up seven of the most ridiculous pieces of parenting advice from Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOP, including spending $50 on baby t-shirts, making homemade vegetable sushi for your kids’ lunch, and a European crib that costs $900. (Babble)

– Fictional Suri Cruise likens Rachel Zoe’s son Skyler’s outfit to what a baby would have to wear in jail. She’s got a point. (Suri’s Burn Book)

– Ivanka Trump will not tolerate her daughter Arabella being spoiled, bratty, or having poor manners. The same article mentions her taking her daughter on a trip to Rome and sporting a dress from the “fall apparel collection” so we’ll see. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Hold the phone! Is Alyson Hannigan’s daughter Satyana somehow wearing two different colors of leggings at the same time or is that one pair of leggings that actually has two different color legs? Either way, I need that look. (Celeb Baby Laundry)

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

gwyneth paltrow people's most beautiful woman 2013

– Gwyneth Paltrow has been named People magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2013, because if it’s hard enough comparing yourself to other moms, it definitely isn’t hard to compare yourself to the MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN. (People)

– Adam Poch, the “Heavy Metal Teddy Bear” from season 13 of Big Brother, got married to longtime girlfriend Fara Herzfeld in a bacon-themed Jewish ceremony. Seriously. (People)

– This is the first time I’ve seen Sarah Jessica Parker’s twin girls Tabitha and Loretta really taking after their mom with some bold fashion choices. Ruffles and multiple patterns and mismatched shoes? Tres chic. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– No baby bump yet for expectant mama Ivanka Trump, but she definitely was glowing at the Museum of Natural History’s Spring Dance. (Babble)

– Sure, Tori Spelling’s post-baby body looks shockingly good on the cover of Us Weekly, but both her kids look absolutely terrified, like maybe it’s not so normal for mama to tote them around in a bikini and heels. (Us Weekly)

The Kid-Dish: Costumes, Toys, and an Awkward Encounter with Russell Brand

By at 2:53 pm

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

– Former star of the Hairspray musical, Marissa Jaret Winokur, brought her 4-year-old son Zev to a Halloween party on Saturday night. She was dressed as the bride of Frankenstein, and it looks like he’s a knight/ninja? With blue hair? Someone help me out. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

-Gwyneth Paltrow, her husband Chris Martin, and both kids (Apple, and Moses) went on a Toys R Us run and got some goodies. This is big news because Paltrow and Martin avoid being seen together, even though they’ve been married for nine years. Can you imagine trying to avoid being seen with your spouse? Also, why would you do that? (US Weekly)

-Harper Beckham apparently hung out with Russell Brand. Neither one looks comfortable with that. (Suri’s Burn Book)

-Tori Spelling threw her 1-year-old daughter Hattie a birthday party with a Mad Hatter theme (get it? Hattie/Hatter?) complete with costumes and 150 guests. The idea of having a birthday party–for anyone, at any age–with 150 guests make me feel a little crazy, but I guess that’s part of the theme–going mad! (Celebrity Baby Scoop)
