Martha Stewart has reportedly fired almost 50 employees in a town hall meeting that took place on Wednesday - nearly one week after former CEO Lisa Gersh left to head Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop.
We're not saying the two things are related, but it's all falling together rather coincidentally! CEO leaves to work for a competitor with a heated history, and workplace chaos ensues during a transition in leadership.

A spy inside the meeting revealed workers were crying and very upset by the layoffs - and sales/marketing departments were hit hardest.
What's even worse - this is not the first time Martha's served pink slips with the holiday season fast approaching. In December 2013, almost 100 workers were given the boot, and close to 70 in November 2012.
Those poor people!
Perhaps Gwyneth is getting to Martha in more ways than one! We know the lifestyle queen isn't pleased with much these days.
