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 Goop founder 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-’00s, 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—but especially if you’re trying to be Martha Stewart.
