There can only be one Martha Stewart, says Martha Stewart. The TV personality and lifestyle guru reportedly threw shade at Gwyneth Paltrow in an interview with Net-a-Porter's magazine.

"She just needs to be quiet. She's a movie star," Stewart recently said, via The New York Post. "If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart."

The 73-year-old previously dissed Paltrow, 41, and her GOOP site during an interview with Bloomberg Television in October 2013. "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 at the time. "She really wants to be part of the lifestyle business. She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle. Fine, good." She added: "I think I started this whole category of lifestyle."

A newcomer to the lifestyle business is 27-year-old actress Blake Lively, who Stewart became friends with after becoming neighbors. Stewart featured Lively and Ryan Reynolds' September 2012 nuptials in Martha Stewart Weddings, but refrained from commenting about the Gossip Girl alum's new blog Preserve. Her senior vice president Kevin Sharkey, however, didn't. 

"I don't get the sense she's credible," he told the mag. "She's enthusiastic, but she's not credible."
