MARTHA STEWART DOESN'T GET WHY BLAKE LIVELY WANTS HER JOB
Martha Stewart thinks her friend, Blake Lively, is silly for trying to launch a lifestyle brand. The 72-year-old chatted with Huffington Post about their relationship and why she can't really get behind Blake's latest venture, Preserve.

Martha told the website, "She moved into my neighborhood a couple of years ago with Ryan -- before they got married, they bought a house right around the corner from my house. And they started to come over, not to borrow sugar, but just as friends. In a way, Blake's kind of shy -- not shy on the screen, at all, if you've seen any of Blake's movies -- but very shy in person. But she's a baker and a homemaker and now she's starting her own blog...I haven't seen it yet."

  • When asked about the former Gossip Girl star's attempt to follow in her footsteps, Stewart responded, "Let her try. I don't mean that facetiously! I mean, it's stupid, she could be an actress! Why would you want to be me if you could be an actress? I just did a movie yesterday, though -- I can't even tell you about it -- but I want to be Blake Lively."
  • Blake's website debuted last week but it has been met with a lot of criticism because of both the items they promote and the prices they are charging for them.

KENDALL JENNER SAYS HER FAMILY NAME HURTS HER CAREER
Kendall Jenner denies that coming from a famous family has helped her modeling career. The 18-year-old appears on the cover of LOVE magazine explaining why the Jenner name has actually made her job more difficult.

Kendall says, "I was like, 'You know what?' I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously...People think that this just came to me. But it didn't. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn't take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show."

  • The Rebels: City of Indra co-author goes on to say, "I went on castings and some people weren't feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn't recognize me. I was like, 'Thank you. Please don't recognize me.'"

'BACHELOR' WINNER CALLS OUT SHOW PRODUCERS
Bachelor/Bachelorette fans may have their own opinions on Monday night's (July 28th) finale but Bachelor winner, Nikki Ferrell, was more annoyed by ABC's After the Final Rose special. The woman who won the heart of Juan Pablo Galavis took to Twitter to call out the show's producers for their treatment of runner-up, Nick Viall.

After a visibly upset Nick asked Andi Dorfman, "Feeling like you did, if you knew how in love with you I was, why did you make love with me?" Nikki wrote, "Gee I wonder who told Nick to say that...How the producers of @BachelorABC sleep at night is beyond me. #trash." She went on to make another dig at ABC by writing, "But on a positive note so beyond happy for @AndiDorfman and @jmurbulldog I bet it feels so good to be free! #congrats"


AUSSIE FILM STUDIO GETS BACKLASH OVER 'NINJA TURTLES' POSTER
A tweet from the Australian branch of Paramount Pictures featuring a promotional poster for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles created some controversy on Tuesday (July 29th) and prompted the company to issue an apology.

The poster shows the four turtles falling from a fiery skyscraper but when combined with the September 11th release date in Australia, people were quick to point out the insensitivity of the tweet. Some users started joking that the turtles were responsible for 9/11.

  • Paramount has since removed the message from their Twitter and Facebook pages but offered no apology or explanation for the mistake.
  • Ninja Turtles is being released in the U.S. on August 8th.

She tells the magazine, "I do look in the mirror and see things I don't want. My first reaction is I breathe and I think, 'I'm a woman. I'm 36. My body is changing.' I'm exactly where I want to be. I do feel beautiful in a way that even when I was working out a whole lot, I sometimes didn't." Zoe continues, "There have been times that I was really slender and I didn't like that I sometimes looked a little too muscular and flat chested -- you'll never be completely happy, so at the end of the day it's like 'F*** it. Just be happy, regardless.' This past year I've had to start letting go. My body dictated it as if saying, 'Slow the f*** down!' And I struggle with that. I love to be an athlete."
