Gwyneth Paltrow Vs. Martha Stewart: Is The Goop Founder Taking A Jab At Lifestyle Guru With 'Jailbird Cake' Recipe?

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow appears to be firing back at lifestyle guru Martha Stewart's diss about her during Thanksgiving, Us Weekly reports.

Paltrow, the founder of lifestyle website Goop, posted a recipe of a cake for Christmas which she dubbed "Jailbird cake." Many have taken it as a response to Stewart's feature on her magazine about pies titled "Conscious Coupling."

The "jailbird" term Paltrow used is believed to be in reference to Stewart's time behind bars in 2004. The lifestyle mogul was charged with fraud and was sentenced to four months in jail and five months house arrest.

In the October issue of "Martha Stewart Living," Stewart ran a piece mocking Paltrow and ex-husband Chris Martin's decision to separate or what Paltrow called "consciously uncouple," according to People.

"Every Thanksgiving table should be blessed with the presence of a long-married pair who bring out the best in each other, are completely enamored despite their differences, and leave every other guest thinking, 'I'll have what they're having,'" the article said.

Paltrow hired former Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia CEO Lisa Gersh to oversee Goop in early October, according to the New York Times.

The move may have been the catalyst to Stewart saying that Paltrow should stop trying to emulate her and should stick to acting, Page Six reported.

"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," the guru said in an interview with Net-a-Porter's "Porter" magazine in September.

Paltrow responded to the remark at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit, saying sarcastically: "No one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I'm shocked and devastated. I'll try to recover."

She continued, "If I'm really honest, I'm so psyched that she sees us as competition. I really am."
