The ongoing feud between the 78-year old living legend of food and lifestyle and the A-list movie star is, well, still going on and hot even as we turn into another year. The culinary and lifestyle maven is leaving no stone unturned to diss the actor’s latest products.

As reported by Page Six, on the latest episode of ‘Watch What Happens Live’, Stewart shaded Paltrow’s home company, Goop, which makes lifestyle products. One of such products that drew not only attention but a lot of criticism from Stewart is a candle named “Smells Like My Vagina.”

Being a lifestyle guru, Stewart is often asked for feedbacks and opinions on latest products that hit the shelves. For Paltrow’s candle, it was no different. And as she would with any other product, Stewart did not hold back from giving an honest opinion. She labeled the candle as something she herself “would not buy”. She was candid and very clear about her response on the show when asked about her thoughts. “She does that kind of irritating … she’s trying to zhush up the public to listen to her. And that’s great, I mean, let her do her thing. I wouldn’t buy that candle.”

When host Andy Cohen asked her  “What does it say about America that the candle is now sold out?”, pat came the reply from Stewart: “I think it’s not America. I think it’s a lot of guys who are horny.”

Whatever Stewart might say, priced at $75, the candle has managed to sell out and become quite popular among Paltrow’s fans. Despite being priced at a higher value than usual for such products, people seem to love the candle. With its aromatic blend of eranium, citrusy bergamot, cedar, Damask rose and ambrette seed, the product has gone out of stock faster than anyone expected.

This is not the first time Stewart has criticized Paltrow’s business venture. The cooking maven’s negative stance on Goop products started when the actor launched them in 2013. To make it more dramatic, Stewart and Paltrow have been feuding over various other issues other than quirky lifestyle products. Stewart had made statements on Paltrow’s separation from Chris Martin, while the actor responded with her comment on Stewart’s ‘Jailbird Cake’ recipe.
