How do we stand on Martha Stewart, for or against?
I find that many people, since her little "incident," do not really like Martha. They think that she is snobbish, self-centered, receives special treatment, and shouldn't have gone along with the stock market scheme in the first place.
Why are we so cynical against Martha?
Personally, I think that if someone suggested us a tip to make us a lot of money, we would go after it too. Maybe Martha did have a lot of money to begin with, but I bet if we had a lot of money too, we would have done the same thing.
I really don't find her that stuck-up either. I've watched her on her show and on talk shows, and I think she's a pretty decent woman. She's made me laugh from time to time. She's taught me a thing or two about creating a corkboard to creating halloween baggies with homemade prints of bats and pumpkins. She's not a bad lady, in my opinion.
On Conan O'Brien, she was a riot. She made Conan go dunking for apples, which was quite a sight to see. She also talked about making creme brule with her microwave. Yes, I know that it's a special privilege to have a microwave in a jail cell, but that's the way the world is: celebrities get special treatment in jail. Do you think that's right or wrong? Whatever. We have no control over it. It might not be fair, but that's the system.
Anyway, I don't see the big stink against Martha. Some people passionately dislike her. I'll take the opposing stand. I have no problem with the woman. I wish I knew so much about making things in the home. I know they're not ALL her ideas, but she's not dumb as rocks.
Are we for or against Martha? Why? Shed some light on the issue.
