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.)

Who should take over 'Today' during Savannah Guthrie's maternity leave? -- VIDEO

Though she is only five months pregnant, speculation has already begun on who will take over for Savannah Guthrie during her maternity leave from The Today Show. The Daily News reported that both Katie Couric and Meredith Vieira are being eyed to return to their old desk positions next to Matt Lauer, but since they each have their own separate projects in the works for Yahoo and NBC, respectively, it seems unlikely they would commit to another (though temporary) full-time gig. While I don’t think Ann Curry should be sitting by her phone any time soon, below are some morning people who could get the wake up call when Guthrie is expected to take a leave later this summer.

Martha Stewart wants YOU to help choose her new online dating profile picture

martha-stewart-facebookRemember a few days ago when Martha Stewart jokingly said she might want to begin online dating?

Well, the Internet took that and ran with it, and now, it seems, Stewart is 100% interested in meeting guys online. The Facebook page for the magazine Martha Stewart Living has just released two dueling photos of the domestic icon, and have announced fans can vote on which look they prefer. The winning image will be her actual Match.com profile picture. READ FULL STORY

Martha Stewart's lost Match.com profile: Let's fill in the blanks

Bad news for men aged 65-80 in the New York metropolitan area: Though 71-year-old domestic goddess Martha Stewart apparently considered joining Match.com recently, she never fully took the plunge.

“I had a longtime boyfriend. That ended a couple of years ago. I haven’t found the next Mr. Right,” Stewart told Matt Lauer during a Today show interview that will air next week. “I was even thinking of going on Match.com!” Even more surprisingly, Stewart said that she wasn’t planning to use an alias or a misleading photo on the site — “I want to do my real thing,” she explained. Anyone else think this sounds like the premise of an upcoming Nancy Meyers movie? (Naturally, Martha’s played by Diane Keaton.)

On the scene: Martha Stewart talks chickens, tweets, 'Cooking School'

Starting the day with eggs from Martha Stewart’s Bedford, N.Y., farm? Now that‘s a good thing. To preview her upcoming Cooking School, the domestic mogul hosted an intimate demonstration at her New York City HQ today.

Entering the event, I must admit that I feared even putting myself in the sightline of La Stewart would send me into a tizzy akin to Ellen DeGeneres in her hilariously chaotic 1995 Thanksgiving episode of Ellen. Then came the aforementioned eggs, the homemade jams (blueberry, raspberry, and cherry), and the caramelized grapefruit (with a candied blood orange garnish — obviously)… and let’s just say Martha knows that the way to ease the nerves is through a glorious food coma.

Kathy Ireland is world's wealthiest supermodel-entrepreneur

Martha Stewart probably doesn’t think this is a Good Thing.

According to Forbes, model Kathy Ireland — who appeared on three Sports Illustrated covers and in 13 consecutive swimsuit issues during the 1980s and ’90s — is worth an estimated $300 to $350 million via her product marketing company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide, and CelebrityNetWorth.com now lists her as the world’s richest supermodel-entrepreneur.

Alexis Stewart's intensely uncomfortable 'Today Show' interview: Watch and squirm!

If looks could kill, anyone that tuned into The Today Show this morning probably would have been dead by breakfast. Martha Stewart‘s daughter Alexis, alongside her former collaborator and friend Jennifer Koppelman-Hutt, visited the program to promote their book Whateverland and, apparently, make everyone terribly, terribly uncomfortable. When asked if the book — in which Stewart writes, among other things, that she felt as though she had “a glue gun pointed at my head” growing up with a famous mom — is an attack on her mother, the author simply stated, “It’s not a book about my mother. It’s a book about growing up and learning to live with what happened or didn’t happen.” (For the record, on her own show, Martha referred to the book as “hilarious” and “enlightening.”)

But it wasn’t the icy responses to the questions about Martha that would have made even David Brent uncomfortable and Nina Garcia cower in fear: It was the interaction between Stewart and Koppelman-Hutt, who have “broken up” since writing the book and working on their radio show together. Some of Stewart’s gems: “If you want to punish somebody, never talking to them again is a really good method,” “Some people are very clingy and some people like to be by themselves,” and “I’m very close to my mother, but not a single other person in my family.” (In case you were wondering, Koppelman-Hutt is very close to her entire family.) If you can handle it, watch the entire awkward clip below. READ FULL STORY

Martha Stewart's animated web series (for children?) continues to baffle us

Last week, AOL Kids launched an online web series called Martha and Friends, about, presumably a young Martha Stewart — or at the very least, a wee Martha Stewart enthusiast who just so happens to share her name — and her fellow black-eyed pals Kevin, Lily, Hannah, and her talking dogs, Francesca and Sharkey. The gang engages in Martha Stewart-like activities, and speak to one another like they’re in an infomercial. (“Try mood mist, an avocado mask, homemade lip balm and everything you need for a natural manicure!”) READ FULL STORY
