It appears as though Gwyneth Paltrow is as unpopular with her Montecito, California, neighbors as the “healing stickers” she sells on Goop are with NASA. If you remember, NASA famously trolled Paltrow over the questionable stickers. As Fortune reports, the healing stickers were plugged (in a since-removed description) as being made with the “same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits.”
The space agency called out the description, saying that NASA space suits don’t have carbon liners and the most recent suits have no carbon fibers at all.
What’s more, former NASA scientist Mark Shelhamer further bashed the stickers sold on Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, calling them “a load of BS.”
“…not only is the whole premise like snake oil, the logic doesn’t even hold up. If they promote healing, why do they leave marks on the skin when they are removed?”
Now, Paltrow’s building plans are infuriating her neighbors — perhaps to an even higher degree than the “healing sticker” claims on Goop infuriated NASA. However, the veteran actress simply doesn’t seem to care. According to a spokesperson for her neighbor, Michael MacElhenny, Gwyneth Paltrow is utterly unwilling to compromise when it comes to her wants versus her neighbors’ complaints.
“Michael and the other neighbors have tried to work with her, and they’ve gotten nowhere.”
Gwyneth has allegedly infuriated her neighbors on “all three sides” with plans to build a massive, 14,000-square-foot mansion in Montecito. Neighbors, many of whom have been there for years, say that Gwyneth Paltrow’s planned house simply doesn’t fit in with what’s already going on in the posh neighborhood.
Specifically, Paltrow’s new palatial home is being called “too big, too tall and incompatible with” nearby homes, particularly those belonging to her closest neighbors. How big is the planned home exactly? How tall? Reportedly big and tall enough to block her neighbor’s coveted views.
“She’s created an uproar with neighbors on all three sides.”
Unfortunately for upset neighbors, it appears as though Gwyneth is getting the green light for her massive new home. As Fox News reports, the Montecito Board of Architectural Review gave the go-ahead for the construction just last week. That’s when the architect of the home assured board members that the overall height of the controversial home had been lowered by a full eight feet.
According to neighbor Michael MacElhenny’s spokesman, Andrew Rice, however, the height of Paltrow’s new home was only reduced by a single foot.
What’s more, Rice claims that Gwyneth Paltrow is responsible for leaving a “trail of tears” on two continents with regard to neighbors of her properties in London, Malibu, and Brentwood.
