OG lifestyle diva Martha Stewart is now taking stabs at Vegenaise lover Gwyneth Paltrow in a way that only she can: In a stunning six-page spread loaded with dairy-filled, decidedly un-macrobiotic pies in the November issue of her magazine, Martha Stewart Living. Sure it may be about pie, but the spread's title, "Conscious Coupling," written in bold capital letters, is an obvious and direct jab at Paltrow. The juice-loving actress's divorce from musician Chris Martin made headlines when she referred to it as "consciously uncoupling."

The digs don't stop there. Stewart continues to poke at Paltrow's divorce: "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 ever other guests thinking, I'll have what they're having." What they are apparently not having is a loopy Goop-y diet of detoxifying shakes.

The move isn't surprising considering Stewart's public dislike of Paltrow. Last month she told Porter magazine that the actress "just needs to be quiet" before adding, "She's a movie star. If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart." Stewart also told Bloomberg TV, "I haven't eaten at Gwyneth's house and I've never seen how she lives... She's a charming, pretty person who has a feeling for lifestyle. She wants to be a lifestyle arbiter, fine, good. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle." Boom.
