Have You A Jewish Grandmother?

I didn't know Jewish grandmothers were that bad.

Reported about Gwyneth Paltrow that:-

the actress used the much maligned c-word during an appearance to describe her maternal grandmother Katherine on Chelsea Handler's late night chat show...the 38-year-old actress was invited on the show, which goes out at 11pm every weekeday, to speak about her cookery book My Father's Daughter.

Midway through their chat Gwyneth and Chelsea came to the realisation that they both had Jewish German grandmothers who they described as mean, and who they both knew as Mutti (German for mummy).

After Chelsea, 36, said her relative was 'a real b****', Gwyneth retorted, referring to her mother's mother, housewife Katherine Danner: 'My Mutti was a real c***'.

The word was bleeped out but eagle-eyed viewers will still be able to lip read and work out what she'd said and the reaction of those around her was a testament to that.

After the actress dropped the C-word, Chelsea recoiled with laughter and the audience broke out into a round of cheers and applause.

Gwyneth said: 'She just hated my guts, basically, and she tried to poison my mother against me.'

'She must not have been very happy and she must have had a lot of pain because she was as mean as hell.'

My grandmothers loved me.

I wish people would stop using the 'shik....' word describing non-Jewish women. Such and ugly word. This grandmother must have been a grand old bitch of the old school of grand old bitches, who are jealous of the new generation for their freedom and advantages. They exist among Jews and non-Jews alike. Jealousy is jealousy. Too bad Gwyneth had one of those. I feel sorry for her. Me, I never had grandparents. The Shoah took care of that. I just hope I'll be a good one, now that I am going to be one soon.
