Meghan McCain is slamming Gwyneth Paltrow’s unorthodox living arrangement with husband Brad Falchuk.
In a recent interview with The Sunday Times, the actress revealed the pair, who wed in September, only live together for four nights a week after which “American Horror Story” producer Falchuk, 48, goes to his own house. “Oh, all my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing,” she told the outlet. The Goop founder’s unconventional living arrangement even got the stamp of approval from her intimacy coach, who said living apart for half the week gave the marriage “polarity.”
On Monday’s episode of “The View”, McCain, 34, criticized Paltrow, 46, and Falchuk’s living arrangement as “rich people stuff.”
“What if you can’t afford two houses? Come on you, guys,” McCain says.
“Everybody’s different… I don’t try and judge anybody else’s marriage because you don’t know what goes on and what works for people,” she adds. “But the rent alone would be enough to make me angry… so I probably wouldn’t do it.”
While McCain may not buy into Paltrow and Falchuk’s idea of wedded bliss, co-host Whoopi Goldberg is in full support of the idea, admitting she loved living separately from her partner.
“I love it. I’ve done it. I don’t want anybody in my house,” she says. “You can come and cook, you can come and hang out, you can sleep (over) and then you gotta go home. I don’t want your drawers on the bathroom floor!”
“I often think, ‘Is Gwyneth Paltrow strange or is she a visionary?’“ Sunny Hostin adds. “I do think she’s a visionary because they do both have teenage children from other marriages… with teenage kids you’ve got to tread lightly.”
“I think sometimes you need to have some space, but that’s me. That’s why I’m not married,” Goldberg says.
