Yes, the domestic goddess herself told E! News Thursday night at the New York City Ballet's fall gala that the newlywed A-listers are "friends" and "live around the corner from me [in Bedford, N.Y.]."
Martha, Blake, and Ry "hang out," she said, adding that the newlyweds are "the nicest couple. And very, very modest and nice, contrary to the parts they play."
Blake and Ryan's southern wedding will be featured in the December issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. And Martha told us that Blake was a "very gorgeous" bride and Ryan was "a very gorgeous groom." We figured that much!
What we didn't know, however, that was Blake is a "groovy cook," according to Ms. Stewart. "She makes fabulous things. I got invited for an ice cream soda party."
OK, so Blake's got a knack for throwing parties. But is she the next Martha Stewart? "Maybe," Martha said laughingly. "You never know!"
