Martha Stewart, reigning Queen of Pot Roast and Tiny Dog Costumes, has been in the news quite a bit recently.

First, she barely acknowledged GOOP-y Goddess Gwyneth Paltrow and her attempts to create a lifestyle empire. In an interview with Bloomberg, Martha says she hopes Paltrow is “authentic” but one should not forget that Queen Martha created the lifestyle brand. Or something like that.

Now, Martha’s in trouble again. In the same Bloomberg interview, Martha Stewart refers to blogger content as “shlocky.” Pardon? She says, ”Who are these bloggers? They’re not trained editors at Vogue magazine. I mean, there are bloggers writing recipes that aren’t tested . . . they are not the experts.

Skip to 1:50 to see Martha’s controversial comments about the blogosphere. Beware, Martha, lest you wake the beast that is Mommybloggers.

In light of Martha’s recent missteps, we have compiled her greatest and WASP-iest tweets. Don’t expect any apologies from the woman who made papier mâché happen.

    Dear Martha Stewart,
    I, as many, many, many, bloggers are, in fact am disgusted by comments you made in your recent interview on Bloomberg TV.
    You said, and I quote, “I have a minor gripe…”Who are these Bloggers? They’re not trained editors at Vogue magazine.”

    Well, I think you know some of them, because at least 5500 bloggers, including myself, heard you deliver a keynote at Blogher 2012.. You praised us up the WAZOO, or should I say, “Blew smoke up our asses?”

    So, to clear up any misconceptions, I’m going to compare your VOGUE editor to your everyday Blogger.

    And, may I first mention Ms. Stewart ,that VOGUE doesn’t actually DO food recipes. So pretty much you don’t even know what you are talking about. I’m assuming that you are referring to YOUR magazine, Good Housekeeping, All You, Saveur, or some publications, that DO DO this recipe TESTING of which you speak..

    I’ve been in the Good Housekeeping Test Kitchen, so I’m not just imagining what goes on in there.

    SO.. to make my arguments against your comment, I am here to defend my entire community of Food Bloggers.

    I will just use me as an example, not the Blogger, who is a full time working mom with children. That’s a whole different ball game.

    Here are several ways that your Editor friends, stack up to My Blogger Friends.

    Editor, has a full time staff that includes a Creative Director, Photographer, Photo Editor, Food Stylist, Editor In Chief, and several interns.

    I have a staff of 3. Me, Myself and I.

    Editor has a car service to take them to the grocery store, and an intern to help them carry everything. I have a bike and recyclable bags.

    Editor has an Expense account, I have my savings account.

    Editor has someone cutting vegetables and washing everything.
    This blogger….All alone in the kitchen.

    Editor- GIGANTIC kitchen that I would die to work in.
    Blogger- a 6 by 4 foot kitchen with 2 drawers.

    Editor has a clean up crew, and someone who takes out the trash at night.
    Blogger- takes out the garbage, and cleans everything myself.

    Editor has several ovens and can make more than one dish at a time.
    Me. Please refer back to the size of my kitchen.

    While I am cooking, I have to pause, grab my camera in one hand, or use a tripod from far away, set on a timer. Your hardworking Editor, has someone from the photo department, hovering and shooting from every angle, then editing the pictures too.

    Oh, and let’s not forget the Food Stylist, that comes in, to help arrange the plating, lighting….you get the idea.

    Finally, about this recipe testing?
    You mention that the bloggers are not TESTING recipes? Really?
    What better test for a meal, than a persnickety husband?

    In closing, I have not described my fellow full- time working bloggers, who do this as a passion project, nor the moms, who have children with needs, that arise while doing ANY of these blogging tasks.

    When was the last time an Editor took a baby to the store? Or had 2 kids fighting while working in the kitchen?

    I think you get the point, and I also think, you need to apologize to me and my Friends.

    All my best,

    Vicki Wintershttp://www.refinery29.com/2013/10/55616/vicki-winters-defense-of-food-bloggers-martha-stweart
