Ohhhh shit, Martha Stewart is throwing shade! Blake Lively may have just launched her own lifestyle website, but Martha is not worried about her coming for the homemaker crown and thinks Blake ought to stick to acting because she will never be on her plane of existence. LOVE IT.
From Page Six:
When asked about Lively’s new website, Preserve, Stewart, 72, seemed puzzled as to why the “Gossip Girl” actress would want to be anything like her.
“Let her try,” Stewart told the Huffington Post on Saturday. “I don’t mean that factiously! I mean, it’s stupid, she could be an actress! Why would you want to be me if you could be an actress? I just did a movie yesterday, though — I can’t even tell you about it — but I want to be Blake Lively.”
“Every day I get starstruck by somebody or something,” she continued. “It’s fun to admire and to learn from people who are better at everything than you are, so I have many heroes I worship, Derek Jeter — I can’t play baseball like Derek Jeter! And Beyoncé — I certainly can’t dance and sing like Beyoncé!”
Hilariously, Blake was rambling on to Vogue recently about how great Martha is and how she’s “generous and kind” and whatnot. And I’m sure she is – I don’t think Martha said any of this maliciously, but she does make a good point. What’s with certain actresses feeling the need to become a lifestyle brand unto themselves? What makes Blake Lively (or Gwyneth Paltrow, for instance) qualified to tell you what foods or $300 tea towels you need in your life? Martha may not have started in this industry either, but she at least did the work and knows what she’s talking about.

Martha Stewart has always been a bit of a hot tamale, even if we’re more used to her as the super vanilla eternal grandma who can transform your home to a delicious, craft-filled heaven. Just because she may have made a name for herself among the more straight-laced crowd doesn’t mean she’s not in her sexual prime, and with that in mind, you might be pleased to know that she’s looking for a permanent man friend to share her days with.
From Haute Living New York:
“I’m looking for a partner,” she says matter-of-factly from a test kitchen at her New York headquarters. Surrounded by cast iron pots and pans, fresh herbs, and a bowl of fragrant lemons—her favorite—the 72-year-old business maven seems utterly in her element. Her no-nonsense, stone-faced demeanor has been replaced by a noticeable softness, one that only comes from a place of comfort, and dare we say, vulnerability. “Love will have something to do with it I’m sure,” she continues, a wry smile beginning to form. “I’d love to have a more regular male companion.”
With enviable looks and sharp business acumen, Stewart can surely have her pick of suitors, but the key, she says, is finding someone “appropriate.” “An amenable kind of person,” she clarifies. “There are plenty of people who I could date that would be inappropriate. Married men, for example.”
Oh snap, get it Martha! Frankly, I’m surprised she isn’t already married. She’s a lovely woman and always has been, physically speaking, but more than that, she seems intelligent, she can cook, she’d make your house gorgeous… what else are men after? Beer and sex? I’m sure she’d do some crazy Kama Sutra shit with you and then bring you an artisan ale from a hidden brewery in a magical forest. Get with it, dudes.

Would you take sex advice from Martha Stewart? Well, would you? If your answer is anything other than “hell no!”, then head on over to her Reddit AMA session, where she doled out some very important advice for those looking to get lucky:
You know, all jokes aside, that’s pretty sound advice. No one likes being self-conscious because you’re dirty and sweaty before the deed, and lord knows you’ll need bath after if you’re doing it right (zing?), so there ya go. Also, dental hygiene is important, so kudos to Martha for promoting it.
The whole thing is golden, so check it out over here. I’ve always liked Martha Stewart and think she’s kind of a bad ass. Plus, she’s crafty as hell (literally and figuratively?), really smart and doesn’t take any shit.

The perpetually skinny as f-ck Kate Bosworth got married this weekend in the middle of nowhere, Montana. She married writer/director Michael Polish. Martha Stewart is totally psyched. She featured their wedding on Martha Stewart Weddings website. This means we get some details about the wedding, like what they gave guests. Spoiler alert: personal cacti!!
And burlap totes containing “locally bottled huckleberry soda” and “a handwritten message from the duo” (Martha Stewart Weddings).
They were married on a ranch in Montana surrounded by nothing. Their wedding had a “creative director.” It was described as “rustic” with “old-world charm.” Congrats, Kate Bosworth.
WEDDING POST!! LET’S TALK ABOUT WEDDINGS. YOUR WEDDINGS, OTHER PEOPLES’, LET’S JUST TALK THE F-CK OUT OF WEDDINGS!

Martha Stewart, you MINX! Appearing on Watch What Happens Live, they played a little game called ‘Did Martha Do It?’, where Maggie Gyllenhaal, who was also appearing on the show, answered questions about Martha before Martha herself confirmed whether or not Maggie was correct. Maggie said no to the sexting question, but Martha shook her head, confirming that she indeed had gotten down and dirty via text. LOVE IT.
Andy Cohen was obviously thrilled with this and joked that he was “so glad” to hear it and “that’s who those messages were from the other day”. Uh, LOL. More importantly, though, Martha hinted that she may have had a threesome before! Just what you want to think about – a 71-year-old woman having group sex. Sweet dreams! Love it! I just hope it wasn’t with Donald Trump.
Below, a little clip of Martha’s appearance (though no video yet of the ‘Did Martha Do It?’ game, unfortunately):

I’m not really sure that an endorsement from Donald Trump on your date-ability is really the best thing you could have if you’re trying to find a nice guy to shack up with on Match.com, but that’s exactly what Martha Stewart got this week. You see, Donald and Martha are old friends and he thinks any guy would be lucky to have her. I’d say! Have you tried her basic pancake recipe? Her buttermilk chocolate cupcakes? Have you felt the softness of her towels? I rest my case.
In any case, instead of sending her a text or an email, Donald decided to take to Access Hollywood Live to wish Martha good luck in her search, which is… sweet or something?
“I know Martha very well… I like Martha a lot,” Trump commented. “She looks fantastic and whoever gets Martha will be very lucky… She’s a very good woman.”
Trump also offered his thoughts on the kind of man who would be a good match for the wealthy and well-to-do Stewart.
“She’s going to need a really confident guy or a man with absolutely no confidence whatsoever,” he joked.
“There’s no in-between, [I] think probably the no confidence would be better.”
Yep, nothing makes a man or woman more attractive that absolutely zero belief in themselves and lots of self-doubt. I can see the cartoon hearts flying out of her ears right now!
In all seriousness, Martha is amazing – it can’t be long now before someone tries to put a ring on it, right? (Good luck on that – Martha ain’t that easy!)
