Celebrity cat fights: Martha Stewart, Mayim Bialik, Giuliana Rancic throw shade
Wow, what's gotten into these celebs? Is it the waning Super/Harvest moon? Is it the solar storms we've been hearing so much about? We don't know what's up, but celebrities are throwing caution to the wind and speaking their minds about other stars who annoy them.
Martha Stewart vs. Gwyneth Paltrow
It would appear that the queen of all things domestic (Martha Stewart) doesn't appreciate actresses doubling as domestic divas. The New York Post's Page Six blog reports that in an interview with Net-a-Porter's Porter magazine, Martha got mouthy about the actress everyone loves to hate. "She just needs to be quiet. She's a movie star," Stewart told the mag. But then the gloves really came off when she continued, "If she were confident in her acting, she wouldn't be trying to be Martha Stewart." Me-ow, Martha.
Don't feel bad, Gwynnie. The media empress and ex-con also threw shade at Orange Is the New Black. "They could have done that so much better. That girl [Taylor] is not good enough, the lead actress," Stewart said. So it's not OK for Paltrow to branch out into domestic matters, but it's OK for Stewart to act like a casting director?
Giuliana Rancic vs. Ariana Grande
The usually sweet and funny E! host and reality TV star Giuliana Rancic dropped her guard for a few seconds to give us some diva dirt on Ariana Grande. Rumors have been swirling for weeks that Grande may be getting, well, a little too grand for her britches. Rancic goes on to to describe a red carpet interview where the young songstress was given the boot from her favorite side of the camera (one she says she fought 13 years for) to make room for Grande, who wanted Rancic's left side for herself.
Rancic delivers the real (and justified) zinger when she compares Grande to Mariah Carey. "I just felt like it's one thing if it's Mariah, you know, I'll get on any side, I'll bend down, I'll climb a ladder, whatever it takes to get Mariah to do an interview. But when you're new on the block, when you're trying to earn your stripes, you're young, you just gotta do what you gotta do, try to get a great reputation, try to go overboard to please people." Preach, Giuliana.
Mayim Bialik vs. Ariana Grande
Well, little Miss Grande is making friends everywhere she goes, isn't she? Mayim Bialik is annoyed with her, too, though it has nothing to do with Grande's diva antics. In a blog post Bialik wrote for Kveller.com, the Big Bang Theory star laments, "There is one [billboard] for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does. Based on the billboard, she sells lingerie. Or stiletto heels." Can we pause here to say we love, love, love it when a huge star (yeah, Bialik has done and said some questionable things herself, but still) says they have no idea who another star is? That is just some good s*** right there. Especially when the star being dissed (and summarily dismissed) is at the height of pop culture. Love it.
Bialik isn't quite done with her rant, however. She goes on to say, "But I just don't understand why this is what ads need to look like. What good does it do for humanity or society? Why do I have to be OK with young women literally in lingerie on gigantic billboards? If I want to see women in lingerie, I can walk through any mall with a Victoria's Secret." Good point. We wonder who Grande will annoy next.
