With all the celebratory press swirling around M Diddy, this kind of piling on will probably be hushed up pretty quick.

Over at Consumer Affairs, we stumbled across a dark side of Martha’s legacy: dozens of folk chewing her out for selling them shoddy outdoor furniture (albeit through Kmart).

BRIDGETTE: Just the other day, for no apparent reason, my glass top table shattered into a million pieces!

SARA: After one summer the cushions were faded and the chair frames were beginning to rust. This summer the ugly, faded fabric on the cushions is dried out and shredding.
