Gwyneth Discovers Her Ancestor Was A "Master Of Kabbalah!"

Holy shiz! This is pretty crazy!

On the series, Who Do You Think You Are?, celebrities have the opportunity to look into their family's history and learn about their previously unknown ancestors, which is exactly what Gwyneth Paltrow was doing when she uncovered that her great-great-great-grandfather was a "master of Kabbalah!"

During the program, which airs April 1st, the actress, who already studies the ancient Jewish mysticism, learned from documents that the man was "a miracle worker" who apparently saved his community from being destroyed by a fire!

And, as to be expected, Gwyneth reponded to the revelation by claiming:

"This is all kinda blowing my mind."

We don't blame her! To grow up and not only discover a faith, but then practice it - only to uncover that an old relative of yours was a master of it?

Insane! Make you kind of wonder if there's a reason things happen, you know?

PS - We bet her ex bestie Madonna will be VERY innerested to learn about this!

    Oh great. Now her pretentiousness will know no bounds…………



  9. 9

    I guess what she doesn't understand is that Kabbalah back then had absolutely nothing to do with the commercialized Kabbalah that exists today.

    Sure he was and I have a goose that lays golden eggs !

    So what you're saying is her GGGf was a Master Mason, not surprising. what gets me is they call it mysticism when its just flat out witchcraft.

    Personally I LOVE this series and I don't care which celebrity they are talking about I find each story a lesson in history and it's fascinating. I swear I've learned more about history from this show than I did in all my school years. Some of the stories are absolutely heartbreaking such as when slavery is concerned. I advise people to check it out!

    Re: LisaRose – I agree! I love this series! I have been working on my family tree little by little for years. I only wish I had the opportunity to travel to various places to trace my ancestors as easily as the celebrities featured on the show. In any event, the show is awesome!

    She would be one to claim something like this.



  16. 16

    Should really spark her country career ….



  17. 17

    she's so cute & lovely but it's a drag that she is such a mental patient.
    was her ggggf a mildly talented country singer married to a crappy british band too.

    If you believe that I have a Dalai Lama to sell you—fuck her. Team Winona!
