Martha Stewart and Gwyneth Paltrow first began their public feud in 2013 when the Oscar-winning actress officially entered the lifestyle arena with her new website, ‘Goop.’
Since then, Martha, 73, and Gwyneth, 42, have taken countless jabs at each other over their competing brands — and now their peer, Rachael Ray, is weighing in on the ladies’ ongoing battle.
“I’m on team food,” Rachael said during an appearance on Bravo’s ‘Watch Watch Happens Live,’ on Wednesday, Dec. 3. “I think everybody who likes to eat has a different take on it and everybody’s opinion should be respected.”

“I love Gwyneth Paltrow. I think that she is very devoted to everything she puts her mind to, and I think she is really a brilliant cookbook author. She writes in many different disciplines,” she continued.
As for Martha, Rachael had many kind words to say about the lifestyle guru.
“I have to have nothing but respect for Martha Stewart. She is a forerunner,” Rachael said. “I wouldn’t have a job without the people who came before me. [Emeril Lagasse] started Food Network. Martha Stewart created an avenue for women who work in lifestyle television — period. You have to have respect for all people’s opinions… in my opinion.”
Rachael appeared on ‘WWHL’ with Jenna Bush Hager.
