Guess there is no celebrity feud here!
While Martha both admitted that she hadn't seen the site and commented that she thought it was "stupid" that Blake was doing a lifestyle site when she could be an actress, Blake isn't feeling sad over the disses.
In fact, she totally agrees with her idol!
Blake commented on her new venture:
"I want to have my own path professionally and even as she said, I'm an actress. I'm doing something totally different so now I sort of have two careers going on and it'll be interesting to see how it all pans out. But really what it is, is I have two passions. And I think ultimately, I will always be doing both, but one is going to be paying the bills better than the other."
But based on her past and childhood, it sounds like Blake is ready for the challenge:
"It was a very natural transition for me. Everything that Preserve is is everything that I grew up around in a big way. My mom is somebody who made everything by hand and anything she didn't make by hand was a discovery and the discovery was often something that was found in a thrift store that was half broken or falling apart. Or it was something an artisan only made a few of, but we couldn't afford so we would just go and look at it every day and one day she would just buy it and hide it from my dad."
And even though Martha would rather be an actress like Blake, the Gossip Girl star feels the exact opposite:
"Who doesn't want to be Martha Stewart? Martha Stewart has been a huge inspiration to me my entire life. She's a huge source of inspiration for my mom. She's how I came to know and love Martha. I always say that Martha Stewart Living is the only magazine I ever had growing up. I never had Tiger Beat or any of that stuff."
Sounds like there aren't any hard feelings here!
In fact, Blake sounds still totally in love with her queen!
