Oh no she didn't! Lifestyle guru Martha Stewart apparently doesn't play nicely with other stars trying to break into the homemaker business. The 72-year-old opined on GOOP queen Gwyneth Paltrow in an interview with Bloomberg Television where she seemed to question Paltrow's foray into her world.

"I haven't eaten at Gwyneth's house and I don't know how she lives, but if she's authentic, all the better. I certainly hope she is," Stewart said. "She really wants to be part of the lifestyle business. She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle. Fine, good." 

Stewart seemed skeptical of the GOOP website creator, 41, who has had two cookbooks on the best seller list.

"I think I started this whole category of lifestyle," the mogul declared. 

This isn't the first time Paltrow has come under fire from critics of her often-pricy takes on everyday items. Many have bashed the star for being pretentious when it comes to her assumptions on what modern women and families can afford.

In March 2012, the New York Times claimed Paltrow had used a ghost writer for her cookbook, My Father's Daughter. The Iron Man 3 star lashed back on her Facebook page saying "Love @nytimes dining section but this weeks facts need checking. No ghost writer on my cookbook, I wrote every word myself."
