Decor Queen Martha Stewart Has Thoughts About Gwyneth Paltrow's "Vagina" Candle

She is not in favor.

It sounds like Martha Stewart still has thoughts on Goop.

Stewart appeared on Thursday night's episode of Watch What Happens Live, during which a called asked her to weigh in on Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop's sold-out $75 dollar candle called "This Smells Like My Vagina."

"I’m sure it’s sold out," Stewart said. "I mean, she does that kind of irritating... she’s trying to zhuzh up the public to listen to her. And that’s great. Let her do her thing. I mean, I wouldn’t buy that candle."

Fair enough.

Stewart, for the record, has been fairly clear about her feelings about Goop and Paltrow in the past.

Last year, on an episode of Alex Rodriguez’s podcast, The Corp, Stewart was asked, “How would you describe what Gwyneth Paltrow is doing today versus what Martha Stewart created years ago?”

"I don't follow Goop," she replied. "Sometimes I look at products that she’s selling … I wish every young entrepreneur well and I hope that there are many, many, many different kinds of entrepreneurs … if they’re movie stars or hardworking women like I am, who are not movie stars. If they have a good idea, I want them to be able to succeed. So, good luck, Gwyneth."

Back in 2013, she also talked about Goop during an interview with Bloomberg TV. "Gwyneth, for example, has a book on the best-seller list. She must be doing something right. She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle," she said at the time. "She wants to be a lifestyle arbiter. Fine. Good. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle."

There was also the time she published a series of "Conscious Coupling" holiday pies in an issue of Martha Stewart Living, and Paltrow appeared to respond with a "Jailbird Cake."

In another interview with Porter magazine, Stewart said about Paltrow, "She just needs to be quiet. She's a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart."

In response, Paltrow sarcastically told Us Weekly, "No one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I'm shocked and devastated. I'll try to recover."

"If I'm really honest, I'm so psyched that she sees us as competition," Paltrow added. "I'm so psyched. I really am. At this point in my life I don't take it personally."
