Daily Dish: Martha Stewart ‘Apologizes’ to Jessica Simpson
Ms. Stewart apologizes in true Martha style – with a non-apology.

Remember when the hostess with the mostess chided Jessica Simpson ever-so-gently for letting her maltipoo Daisy out of her sight? Well, Martha Stewart is “very, very sorry.”
Stewart sort-of apologized on her show Thursday while making a doggy-themed tote bag with her guest, actress Jennifer Garner:
“I want to make a public apology for a misunderstanding – not for what I said – I had said that she should have been watching her dog more closely but I feel very, very sorry for anyone who loses a pet, so Jessica, I hope you find your pet, but if you don’t, I’m really sorry you lost it.”
Lovely. Really, Martha tried, and I’m sure Jessica appreciates her clarification of this “misunderstanding.”
Funnily enough, Martha was chiding Jennifer Garner for her lax puppy parenting just moments before clarifying (not apologizing for!) her statement to Jessica Simpson on the same topic.
Lay off, Martha – we can’t all be as perfect as you! (Us Weekly)
