Martha Stewart has apologized to Jessica Simpson for saying she should have watched her Malitpoo Daisy more closely after the dog was dragged away by a coyote in Los Angeles last week.

At Us Weekly's 25 Most Stylish New Yorkers bash Sept. 15, Stewart, 68, scolded Simpson, 29, calling the incident was "pretty sad." She said Simpson "should have been more careful" and also advised the singer to "get another dog."

But in a segment on her daytime program, The Martha Stewart Show, Stewart changed her tune.

"I said that she should have been watching her dog more closely, but I feel very, very sorry for anybody that loses a pet," she said Thursday. "Jessica, I hope you find your pet, but if you don't, I'm really sorry that you lost one."
