After a luxe weekend in Marrakesh with her surprising new bestie Jennifer Aniston, my imaginary bestie Gwyneth Paltrow is now back in London, photographed today surveying the progress on her home expansion. As previously reported, she and Chris Martin bought the place next door and are merging the two into one mammoth residence worth £7 million.

I like her other wellingtons more. The lace-up ones remember?

Glastonbury 2005. A fresh faced, long haired Gwyneth, a year after the birth of Apple, showed up for Coldplay. I love these pictures. I was the only one who liked her straggly mane. Looking at it now, I still do.

As for those cheating allegations, you will note, despite announcing that he’d be taking legal action against Star Magazine, there has at press time been no word on a Chris Martin lawsuit. It’s been 3 weeks now. I have a friend who just wrote to me, she’s predicting G and Chris will be done by the new year.

I’m not so sure.

The house doesn’t look ready. And they still have to have all their friends and acquaintances and magazine editors over for dinner GOOP styles. Why bother with all this fuss if not to show it off? Definitely not until then.
