Both celebrities have taken to Twitter to reassure the public that they have not used ghostwriters.
Here's an excerpt from the Huffingtonpost.
Paltrow credits her supposed ghostwriter, Julia Turshen for a lot of work in the cookbook and Turshen worked very closely with Paltrow. Still, she distinguishes between her own writing and the assistance of Turshen. |
In both Ray's and Paltrow's cases, it seems as if there are discrepancies between the New York Times version of what a ghostwriter is, and what Ray and Paltrow call a ghostwriter. The titles are a bit blurred -- it can be hard to draw the line between ghostwriting and assisting with a cookbook.
