MARTHA STEWART

I will admit, right from the start, that I am not a Martha Stewart fan.  Never have been.  I just saw her in an interview, I think it was on Entertainment Tonight or one of those shows, that reinforces my opinion.  They put up a photo of Felicity Huffman in her green prison garb, and Martha made the comment that "She looks "shlumpy"and "she could have styled it better."  Was that comment really necessary?  Did she think that she looked any better when she was behind bars?  Speaking of which, why would you agree to go to prison if you really thought you were innocent?

 

Then they aired an interview with Martha from years ago.  There was a photo up of Gwyneth Paltrow, to which Martha said something like, "If she were more confident in her acting ability, she would not be trying to be the next Martha Stewart."  Gwyneth started that Goop company and is doing very well at it.  Kudos to her.  And, I think she is a great actress as well.

 

Over the years I have heard comments from her ex-husband and ex-employees.  She was and probably is still NOT a nice person to work for.  Sure she is successful, despite her felony record.  But to use a quote from the movie "Stepmom", "Winning without dignity and grace is not winning."  I think that Martha could have achieved the same amount of success without being nasty.  I have never, and will never, buy anything that she sells.  I just wanted to get that off my chest.  I wonder if anyone else feels the same way I do.

Re: MARTHA STEWART

No. I first discovered her in the mid eighties. I was always into decorating, food, setting tables, etc. 

Personally, I think she says a lot of things that are meant to be funny, but she doesn’t have the kind of delivery and they come out mean.

I agree that I think,she treated her husband like ******. 

 

However, I follow her blog and admire her get up and go and travel every day as she pushes eighty.

 

I agree she is not everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s what makes the world go round.

Re: MARTHA STEWART

No, @PUPPY LIPS I don't feel the same way.  For one, I think the newest comment was sort of tongue-in-cheek, and nothing anyone should get riled up about.

 

Not all the world has to say only what is expected or only what is nice and sweet and lovely now.  We are free to say things we thing, sometimes harsh.  It doesn't bother me.  Sometimes a little honesty is fine. 

 

I think a lot more people need to grow up and let stuff go and realize that not everything is something to be offended about.  I think both of these ladies are in the media, used to comments and can certainly take care of themselves.

 

Martha of all people has sure had her lumps and gotten past them.

@PUPPY LIPS 

 

I totally agree!

 

She is so condescending to everyone, that it is disgusting!

 

I thought that her prison time would take her down a peg or 2, but obviously not.

 

Humble and kind are definitely not in her vocabulary, IMO.

Re: MARTHA STEWART

I am not a fan of Martha Stewart the person and not interested in what she says or thinks of other celebrities.  I am a fan of the products Martha Stewart designs, promotes and sells. I have been buying her items for years and still do, the quality is superior and designed to my liking.

Re: MARTHA STEWART

For someone who spews so much distain for someone you sure know a lot about her and watching interviews from now and over the years.  Why would you waste your time watching her or writing this post while asking if people agree with you.  I am not a Martha fan, but would never stoop to this level.  Oh and by the way, you obviously do not understand the law at all.

Re: MARTHA STEWART

She's not a very warm personality.  But her products are always outstanding!  I've never been unhappy with any of her products that I have purchased.

Re: MARTHA STEWART

I’ve been a Martha fan for as long as I can remember but was very disappointed in her reply on Entertainment Tonight when asked about Felicity Huffman. Her remark was very unkind and snarky. I really hope it was edited or tweaked which we know the media is known to do. Whole thing was unnecessary.

@Biftu  I don't know a lot about her and have only seen snippets of her interviews and of comments by people close to her, and they are all point to a mean spirited person.  I don't seek her out and definitely change the channel when she is on QVC.
