Gwyneth Paltrow's Passive-Aggressive Dinner Party (PHOTOS)

You don't really think you're invited, do you?
For those of you who long to be GOOP'd, the fantastic news is that Gwyneth is offering you even more opportunities to live just like the actress/singer/reality show host/chef/mom does. 

Oh, Gwyn, you're such an easy target. But at least this time, the kitchen and dining goods you're hawking, alongside your new cookbook, My Father's Daughter, are affordable. The presentation, however, is still very, very Gwyneth. As in, you find yourself wanting to pull out your credit card with one hand while smacking the real-life Barbie doll with the other.

Check out the most passive-aggressive dinnerware ad campaign of all time.

Too bad for you, plebe, as everything (except those bowls that hold the pink salt) is practically sold out. Yes, it's because Gwyn told her cool friends first, and you are not even six degrees from that inside circle. Better luck next time!

What do you think of Gwyneth's dinner party?

I really don't understand all the hate directed at Gwenyth Paltrow on this site. Sure, she seems over the top, but really, who cares? She's not HURTING anyone.

I think it's a beautiful table setting, and the guests will have a lovely evening. Why are you so upset about it?

I'm sorry but I really do have to agree with everyone else. Why all the hate for this woman? Just what is it that she did? I don't not like her and find all this very insulting.

Sure, she's ridiculous and over the top, but that's what we expect from celebrities and it really shouldn't be any surprise to you or anyone else.

I like how it's set up. I actually have some bowls like that for flavored salts too. What's the big deal? My aunt and I have been known to prepare a menu for our guests explaining what will be served too. Our guests always find our parties fun and unique.

I don't understand what the problem is. I think her table settings look beautiful and classic.
