Your move, goop.

Martha Stewart took her domestic goddess feud with Gwyneth Paltrow to the pages of her magazine, publishing a spread cheekily titled “Conscious Coupling” in the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living.

The headline could be a not-so-subtle dig at Paltrow’s March announcement that she and her husband, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, decided to “consciously uncouple” after 10 years of marriage.

“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 every other guest thinking, I’ll have what they’re having,” the Martha Stewart Living piece begins. “Our holiday pies honor such partnerships, each spotlighting the perfect marriage of crust and filling so there’s a pleasant mix of textures and flavors in every bite.”

But it doesn’t seem like Paltrow, 42, will be sweating the diss. At the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit last week, the Mortdecai star made light of the 73-year-old lifestyle guru’s comment that if she “were confident in her acting she wouldn’t be trying to be Martha Stewart.”

“No one has ever said anything bad about me before, so I’m shocked and devastated,” Paltrow joked. “I’ll try to recover.”
