Is there a feud brewing between Blake Lively and her mentor Martha Stewart? B has made no secret of her adoration for the ultimate lifestyle guru and clearly hopes that Preserve will help her morph from an Upper East Side princess to a domestic goddess. Unfortunately, Martha has some rather interesting thoughts on B’s new venture…
‘Let her try,” Martha said, but then quickly tried to backpedal and/or explain herself. “I don’t mean that facetiously! 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.”
Mm hmm, whatever you say Martha. I’ve had my fair share of run-ins with Martha (whom I too adore even though I don’t cook and will never attempt to do so) and trust me darlings, gracious and mannered though she may be, Martha does not share power easily. I wonder if M is secretly steamed that B is ready to replace her. Martha is 72–she has to retire sometime.
Although I must agree, who wouldn’t want to be Blake? Then again, Martha is laboring under the delusion that one must be either an actress or a domestic queen–and clearly B is doing both. Do you think it’s starting to rankle Ms Stewart that the student is now becoming the master? Or did M’s quip merely fall flat?
