MarthaWatch™: M Diddy Does the Press, Baby!
Boy, it’s been nearly two weeks since we last heard about Martha, so it had to be time she was in the news again. And, oh yes, is she.
While August is quiet and her ankle bracelet doesn’t come off for a few more days (8.31 to be exact), forget fixing up her house, Martha was busy yesterday stirring up press for her TWO new shows. As reported in the NYTimes this morning, Martha had a news conference yesterday to promote both her new daily show, Martha, and the new edition of The Apprentice: Martha Stewart (you can watch video clips on both sites – what did she learn at Alderson? “Fortititude” and “how to bake creme caramel”… unreal).
While it’s all well and good that she is being honest and talking about jail and her ankle bracelet, we just wonder how this next chapter of her life will come out. These shows are so contradictory to one another in the image that they present, tough bitch v. smart, funny homemaker, that it just seems like a disaster waiting to happen. But who knows? Shares of her company are up. Mark Burnett believes in her. Stranger things have happened. MGR
