Martha Stewart thinks Gwyneth Paltrow should stick to her acting career.

Martha Stewart, queen of the country (home) has some choice words for Gwyneth Paltrow — the other flaxen-haired lifestyle maven — who’s made no secret about her desire to expand her celebrity influence into the domestic sphere. Stewart reportedly told Net-a-Porter magazine, “She just needs to be quiet. She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.”

Oh Martha, we could nap comfortably in a hammock on the sun with that intense shade.

Stewart’s loyal team also reportedly found Blake Lively’s similar venture into creating a covetable lifestyle brand less than thrilling. MSL senior vice president Kevin Sharkey said of Lively, who is said to have asked Stewart for advice, “She’s enthusiastic, but she’s not credible.”

The full profile of Stewart includes even more gauntlet-throwing from Martha, including assessments of Sheryl Sandberg (“Too much time is spent... Isn’t ‘leaning in’ spending a lot of time?... I think being entrepreneurial is something women should strive for, rather than working up the corporate ladder”) and even Taylor Schilling’s portrayal of real-life inmate Piper Kerman on Orange is the New Black (“They could have done that so much better. That girl is not good enough”).

Who knew Martha Stewart could deliver such a sting? Actually, who didn’t? She didn’t earn the prison nickname M. Diddy for nothing.

Inside the Martha Stewart, Gwyneth Paltrow Feud

In the ongoing feud between Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow, it appears Stewart is up with a not-so-subtle dig at Paltrow’s infamous “conscious uncoupling” comment.

The actress used the phrase in March 2014 to announce her separation from husband Chris Martin. Now, Stewart, 73, has turned to the phrase in the November issue of her magazine, Martha Stewart Living.

In an article headlined “Conscious Coupling,” Stewart writes about flavor pairings that work well in pies, but she could just as well be talking about something else. Just check out the story’s introduction:

"Every Thanksgiving table should be blessed with the presence of a long-married pair who bring out the best in each other, are completely enamored despite their differences, and leave every other guest thinking, I’ll have what they’re having. Our holiday pies honor such so there’s a pleasant mix of textures and flavors in every bite. No matter how you slice partnerships, each spotlighting the perfect marriage of crust and filling these six irresistible desserts, there is a whole lot to love."

In case you haven’t been following the feud between these two mega stars, we break it down for you:

quicklist: title: Stewart’s First Salvotext: Their beef started back in the fall of 2013 when Bloomberg TV asked the domestic doyenne what she thought of Paltrow’s entry into the lifestyle arena with her Goop brand. Stewart’s response was somewhat passive aggressive:

"I haven't eaten at Gwyneth's house, and I've never seen how she lives," she told Bloomberg. "But if she is authentic, all the better. I mean, I certainly hope she is. She really wants to be part of the lifestyle business. . Gwyneth, for example, has a book on the bestseller list. She must be doing something right. She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle. She wants to be a lifestyle arbiter. Fine. Good. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle."

quicklist:title: Stewart Turns Up the Heattext: Stewart stoked the fire in an interview with Porter magazine last month, when she said, "[Paltrow] just needs to be quiet. She's a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart."

quicklist:title: Paltrow Finally Respondstext: The 42-year-old actress had remained mum until last week, when she acknowledged at Fortune magazine’s Most Powerful Women Summit that she was aware of Stewart’s criticism.

"No one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I'm shocked and devastated," Paltrow joked, according to E! News. "I'll try to recover." She added, "If I'm really honest, I'm so psyched that she sees us as competition. I really am."

quicklist:title: Paltrow Hires Stewart’s Ex-CEOtext: Also last week, Paltrow announced the new CEO of her lifestyle brand, Lisa Gersh. The rub: Gersh previously worked as president and CEO at Martha Stewart Living. "She's the perfect person to build on the momentum we have already created at Goop," Paltrow raved in a statement to Us Weekly. Gersh gushed in turn, "As a fan since its launch, I've admired the inimitable voice and style Gwyneth has infused into Goop, and the business she's built."


She has a terrible relationship with her daughter

Being Stewart's daughter is no easy task. So says Alexis Stewart in her damaging and juicy memoir entitled Whateverland: Learn to Live Here. Alexis said her mother was extremely tough on her. "If I didn't do something perfectly, I had to do it again," she wrote, according to ABC News. "I grew up with a glue gun pointed at my head."

During holidays, the self-proclaimed domestic goddess was reportedly a grouch. Alexis claims she was forced to wrap her own Christmas presents and that her mother all but canceled Halloween. "There were no costumes. There was no anything. We turned off all the lights and pretended we weren't home," she said.

Even today, it seems Alexis and her mamma share a somewhat strained adult relationship. In her book, Alexis says her mom is a terrible guest. "My mother will occasionally complain that I don't invite her over for dinner," she writes, according to ABC News. "But can you blame me? Because, sometimes this is what will happen: Whatever I serve, she will sip it, taste it, make a face and push it away." Ouch!


Martha Stewart Tells Gwyneth Paltrow to 'Be Quiet'

Though she has plenty of fans, GOOP founder/actress/kale enthusiast Gwyneth Paltrow is not receiving any love from lifestyle mogul Martha Stewart. According to the New York Post, Stewart told Porter magazine that Paltrow "just needs to be quiet." Stewart continued throwing daggers: "She's a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart." Ouch. How many jars of vegannaise is Paltrow going to consume to ease the pain of that burn?

This isn't the first time Stewart has thrown about 50 shades of shade at Paltrow. Last year she told Bloomberg TV: "I haven't eaten at Gwyneth's house and I've never seen how she lives. She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle. She wants to be a lifestyle arbiter, fine, good. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle." Shortly after that, when asked by TMZ who is the better "lifestyle coach" was between her and Paltrow, Stewart sharply replied that "you have to live to be a coach." Who will be Stewart's next victim? Perhaps Cheesecake Factory lover/weird lifestyle website-creator Blake Lively should start building herself a chic DIY bunker now.


Share All sharing options for: Gwyneth Paltrow Takes Aim at Martha Stewart's Sordid Criminal Past

Just like rappers use lyrics to call out the people they hate, lifestyle mavens use recipes to take stabs at their enemies. A month after OG lifestyle queen bee Martha Stewart threw some very obvious punches at Vegenaise enthusiast Gwyneth Paltrow in the pages of Martha Stewart Living, Paltrow has fired back in her very influential GOOP e-mail newsletter. The kale juice priestess published a list of Thanksgiving desserts, including one for a "Jailbird Cake" which appears to be a not-so-thinly veiled reference to Stewart's stint behind bars.

Back in October, Stewart took feuding to a whole new level by naming a stunning six-page spread of decidedly un-macrobiotic pies "Conscious Coupling." The title pokes fun at the detox shake-chugging actress' divorce, which Paltrow kept referring to as "consciously uncoupling." Adding insult to injury, the spread was paired with the text: "Every Thanksgiving table should be blessed with the presence of a long-married pair who bring out the best in each other, are completely enamored despite their differences, and leave ever other guests thinking."

Even before the recent string of snarky recipes, Paltrow and Stewart weren't exactly BFFs. Earlier this year, Stewart told Porter magazine that the actress "just needs to be quiet," be adding, "She's a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart." Perhaps this Jailbird Cake stunt is proof that Stewart might actually be on to something. Poor Gwynnie.


Did Martha Stewart Just Shade Gwyneth Paltrow Again?

Could Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow's rumored feud be heating up again? One Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen fan asked the lifestyle guru for her take on the investigation into the alleged "deceptive" health claims made about Goop's products by watchdog group Truth in Advertising and if there was any truth to the rumors that she was "happy" about it.

Stewart at first poked a little fun at their reported beef. "Who's Goop?" she joked to Andy Cohen.

Then, Stewart shut down the rumors. "No, that's not true," she said. "She's a good girl."

Stewart and Paltrow have been rumored to have tension between them ever since the Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party star commented on her company in 2013. "She really wants to be part of the lifestyle business. She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle,” Stewart said of Paltrow founding Goop on Bloomberg Television. “She wants to be a lifestyle arbiter. Fine. Good. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle.”


Martha Stewart Pays Cheeky Homage to Gwyneth Paltrow

Martha Stewart, the original gangster of the domestic-lifestyle business, has made her thoughts on Goop mastermind Gwyneth Paltrow very clear. “She just needs to be quiet,” Stewart said of Paltrow last month. “She’s a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.”

Last week, as the hiss of that sick burn finally died down, Paltrow addressed those statements with grace and self-deprecation. “First of all, no one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I’m shocked and devastated. I’ll try to recover,” Paltrow joked at Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit. “If I’m really honest, I’m so psyched that she sees us as competition, I really am.”

And now, it is Stewart’s turn to have a word—or technically, two. In the November issue of Stewart’s magazine Martha Stewart Living, she and her editors have cheekily titled one pictorial “Conscious Coupling”—what seems like a direct reference to the title of Paltrow’s separation announcement, “Conscious Uncoupling,” which she posted on her Goop Web site this past March.

Stewart’s magazine spread, which we imagine elicited many a mischievous giggle in Martha Stewart Living headquarters, does not address the coupling or uncoupling of a Hollywood actress and popular musician. Rather, it addresses the delicious unions of Thanksgiving pie fillings and crusts. Underneath the Gwyneth-inspired heading are these words:

Every Thanksgiving table should be blessed with the presence of a long-married pair who bring out the best in each other, are completely enamored despite their differences, and leave every other guest thinking, I’ll have what they’re having. Our holiday pies honor such partnerships, each spotlighting this perfect marriage of crust and filling so there’s a pleasant mix of textures and flavors in every bite. No matter how you slice six irresistible desserts, there is a whole lot to love.

Dear readers, we read this paragraph backwards and forwards, trying to make out any hidden messages that Team Martha might have encoded in this unassuming Thanksgiving-pie blurb for Team Paltrow, but we found none. Take a look for yourselves, and imagine a world in which Stewart and Paltrow, from this point forward, only address each other passive aggressively in the intro text of their dessert recipes.


Gwyneth Paltrow's Sharp, Smart Response to Martha Stewart's Shade

G wyneth Paltrow &mdash Iron Man actress, Goop entrepreneur, and all-around super-mom &mdash has a lot to teach her fans: how to consciously uncouple (and what that even means), how to prepare elegant yet nutritious meals, and now, how to respond to an insult in a way that only makes you look better.

At Fortune‘s Most Powerful Women Summit Tuesday, Real Simple editor Kristin van Ogtrop asked Paltrow what she thought of Martha Stewart’s recent comments about Goop (Both Fortune and Real Simple share a parent company with TIME.) Stewart had said, “She just needs to be quiet. She&rsquos a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn&rsquot be trying to be Martha Stewart.” It was a fairly harsh criticism that seemed to crystallize public perception of Paltrow: that she’s somehow out-of-touch and imbued with a Hollywood vanity that invalidates her advice.

Contrary to Stewart, though, Paltrow seemed incredibly confident in her ability to deliver lines now, telling van Ogtrop sarcastically: “No one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I&rsquom shocked and devastated. I&rsquoll try to recover. If I&rsquom really honest, I&rsquom so psyched that she sees us as competition. I really am.”

It was the perfect rebuttal, complete with a strong dose of self-deprecating humor, for which Paltrow isn’t generally known. And Paltrow managed to turn Stewart’s remarks back around on her, turning a vicious shade attack into the sort of healthy competition that makes one try harder. Paltrow’s haters may not appreciate her perceived attitude of superiority, but this time, she did it better &mdash with more perspective, wit, and tactical intelligence &mdash than anyone could have expected.


Martha Stewart slams Gwyneth Paltrow: 'She just needs to be quiet'

Martha Stewart probably doesn’t have Goop bookmarked on her browser.

In a recent interview with Net-a-Porter’s Porter magazine, Stewart bashed Goopfounder Gwyneth Paltrow, claiming the actress “wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart” if she were confident in her acting skills. “She just needs to be quiet,” Stewart said, according to Page Six.

Paltrow wasn’t the only woman Stewart targeted on her apparent insult spree: She also ragged on the Netflix series Orange is the New Black, claiming the lead character of Piper was badly cast. “They could have done so much better,” Stewart said, referring to Taylor Schilling—who scored an Emmy nod for her performance as Piper. “That girl is not good enough, the lead actress.” (It’s worth noting here that in the mid-�s, Stewart was nearly incarcerated in Danbury, Connecticut’s Federal Correctional Institution, the same prison on which OITNB‘s fictional Litchfield prison is based.)

And while Stewart herself didn’t have anything nasty to say about recent Martha Stewart copycat Blake Lively, who launched a lifestyle site called Preserve in July, her senior vice president Kevin Sharkey did have some words about the Gossip Girl star: “I don’t get the sense she’s credible,” he said. “She’s enthusiastic, but she’s not credible.”

The moral of the story? Martha Stewart most likely doesn’t approve of you, no matter what you’re doing𠅋ut especially if you’re trying to be Martha Stewart.


Is Gwyneth Paltrow's 'Jailbird Cake' Recipe a Dig at Martha Stewart?

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s latest baking suggestion appears to be a cleverly veiled diss at domestic rival Martha Stewart‘s past as a prisoner.

Published on her website, goop, the dessert consists of chocolate wafers and whipped cream – and brings to mind 73-year-old Stewart’s 2004 stint behind bars (and then under house arrest) for insider trading.

Now that‘s having your cake and eating it too.

It’s also an apt response to the 𠇌onscious Coupling” spread that appeared in Martha Stewart Living last month, a play on the announcement that Paltrow, 42, was "consciously uncoupling" from husband Chris Martin.

“The folks at goop know how to have some fun, too,” a source close to the goop creator tells PEOPLE. “If Martha served up the appetizer, the Jailbird Cake is just desserts.”

You know what they say: If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.
