Not sure if true or how it would work, but heard all of Martha Stewart's homes are owned by LLCs and she writes much of the costs off because she uses them for various business purposes such as filming shows.

Ms. Stewart owns the former Ford estate in Maine, Skylands. She got the place virtually with tons of things left by the Ford family and subsequent owner the place before herself. This includes china, linens, etc..

R8- I always thought that Matt Lauer was a DICK. He was so full of himself on the Today Show and now he's been fired. He owned a $40 million house in the Hamptons. He was exactly frugal with his money. He had to sell the house. I guess that DICK is not living so HIGH ON THE HOG now.

Matt Lauer was horrible to Christie Brinkley in an interview. She came on to talk about her appearance on Broadway...and he grilled her about her divorce from Peter Cook and how maybe it was her fault. She kept defending herself, almost in tears. He was so brutal and obnoxious and wouldn't let up. This happened many years ago, obviously. He got what he deserved. Martha Stewart is ok...like her lifestyle and she's interesting. As a person, I'm not sure I always like her.

I think she’s a great big polock with big feet and a bigger chip on her shoulder. And she runs chicks over with her car, so there’s that.

Nutley used to be some sort of suburban nirvana for NJ social climbers. My ruthless, nasty aunt, who wanted to be seen as a worthy, drove my uncle (my dads brother) 24/7 until they could buy a house in nutley. She also drove her kids into alcoholism and as far from her as they could get — straight to California!

It was smart of Martha to do a deal with K-Mart. The way to get mega rich is by selling goods to the unwashed masses. They love to spend their money on aspirational lifestyle products and services.

Her intensity in the beginning was literally awesome. We would get high and marvel at her over the top approach to everything. It’s what made me love her, the insanity of it all. I applauded her synergetic ability to take her semi-faux lifestyle and monetize it. I applauded that she manned up and served time (because she’s a woman-no doubt). I don’t begrudge her any of her success. But frankly, her 15 minutes are up. NEXT!

More about Skylands, Seal Harbor, Maine, etc...

Ms. Stewart's next door neighbors so to speak are the Rockefeller family who have been summering in Maine for over 100 years.

There is a bit of gossip, and don't know if it is true or not, that goes when new to area one day Ms. Stewart went into "town" to get a bit of shopping done. At whatever local store there was a line and Martha Stewart being, well Martha Stewart wanted to jump the queue. She pushed ahead of some "older man" who protested. MS shot back "do you know who I am?" To which the gentleman replied "Do you know who *I* am?" Man in question was none other than David Rockefeller. MS put down her things and left...

Apparently Ms. Stewart and Rockefeller family patched things up because she hosted a party David Rockefeller's 100th birthday at Skylands.

Maine of course long has been where less ostentatious (but still often quite wealthy) WASPs spent their summers.

She was showing the TV audience around Skylands and she was totally plotzing over the linen storage system.

by Anonymousreply 59October 31, 2021 5:00 AM

That storage system IIRC was put in by the Ford family and was common to homes of wealthy at that time.

Besides standard linen press with drawers and shelves for storing folded napkins, placemats, etc.. there are also rows of wooden dowels (bars) where freshly laundered and ironing large linens like tablecloths or even small things like towels.. anything you don't want folded are placed.

Unlike in Europe, American households of the wealthy long preferred tablecloths totally creaseless. Or if that cannot be managed just one center crease/fold. Obviously you cannot store large tablecloths this way, so things are folded, then creases are ironed out before use. Far easier to simply roll tablecloths or whatever onto a dowel or paper roll as it is ironed then store.

Say "simple" but it isn't really. Once commonly found the few French hand laundries that still exist and offer "return on roller" charge an eff ton of money.

While ruffians like Trump are shouting it from the rooftops, when in reality he just joined his father's company and started from there. Martha built her company from scratch as a woman in a world of men. I love her ballsiness, her vision, her self-belief and her will not take no prisoners attitude.

R94, I agree with you. They wanted to teach her a lesson, because she is an ambitious and successful businesswoman. She wasn't doing anything that hasn't been done before in Wall Street or that many of them are still doing as I type. R93, how do you think the 2007-2008 crisis happened?

MS was tried and convicted for obstruction of justice and basically lying.

All and all she was rather lightly dealt with, receiving a sentence far lower than others convicted of similar charges. In less than six months Ms. Stewart left federal custody and flew home on a private jet to spend balance of sentence on home release (federal prison system does not have parole).

Martha Stewart told her version of events while federal government laid out things as they saw them. Sadly for MS jury believed federal government's version of events.

R112...Her prison time has given her new respect by people not normally attracted...or relate to her lifestyle brand, before her arrest. Now she's a "badass". I guess that opens up her audience and potential customers.

I don't mind if someone talks a lot if they have a lot of information. A walking tour of Paris with Martha at R117 giving a running commentary on her early modeling days, the history of Paris neighborhoods, French cheeses and the changing culinary scene would be so interesting

There are dozens if not scores of Americans and British living in Paris and other areas of France who give guided tours. Many are not in France legally (such as came on a tourist visa and never left), so cannot work "legally" either, but those tours are a way to make money. You can find some videos on TY and or reviews on Yelp or similar sites.

Same sort of thing exists in many other hot tourist destinations in Europe such as Rome and so forth.

I think prison must have humbled her just enough she's decided to relax a little but MS is so tough that even prison couldn't humble her to the point of admitting it. I get more of an aw-fuck-it than an I-learned-an-important-lesson vibe.

Since the pandemic, I've been getting her meal kits once a week.

I've been very pleased by the variety. I've made Indonesian, Portuguese, Greek, Moroccan, Thai, Peruvian, South African, Italian, French, and American dishes.

I made a Chinese orange chicken dish last week. It was the first time I've had orange chicken when it wasn't cloyingly sweet. It used the juice of two oranges and sauteed peel to add tartness. I also added some Thai chili peppers because I like things hotter.

She and Snoop are opening a restaurant in Vegas (I believe at the Paris casino) called--wait for it--The Joint. She's been selling CBD items for awhile now.

No surprise that her corporation owns her homes. P. Allen Smith built his home in Arkansas the same way, as he also films there and hosts cooking classes, tours, etc. It's a good system unless/until you get voted out of your own corporation.

I watched about x10 of the ep's at R63's link yesterday on my day off. The first x9 eps had me laughing out loud, as they made fun of Martha's old shows. But then I watched one from their 3rd season, and I realized what an ungrateful bitch Alexis is. Both to her mum and her friend cohosting the show. As someone said above, she's almost 60. If she has issues with her mother--which she clearly does, to air her dirty laundry on TV and in a tell-all--she doesn't need to work for her mother nor have much to do with her. Unless, of course, the only reason she's kowtowing to her is to make sure she and her children are provided for in the will. I wouldn't put it past Martha to exclude them all if she doesn't feel respected. I do know from Martha's IG that she worships the ground her grandchildren walk on.

Her knowledge, skills, work ethic and intelligence are admirable but it's only in recent years that she's come across as anything other than rigidly uptight and socially awkward. She's lost credibility in her career because of it. I don't need her to be my friend I need her to be serious and trustworthy in her knowledge. Hanging out with a thug like Snoop makes her look bad in that respect. I don't blame her for wanting to loosen up though, she is 80. I hope she enjoys all the money she's earned while she still can.

by Anonymousreply 154November 6, 2021 10:46 PM

Think her criminal conviction (regardless of merit or whatever) took away some of MS's credibility, and perhaps acceptance in society.

Yes, as people on DL say supposedly lots of other people did what Martha Stewart was convicted of, but she is the one that was caught. Sort of like Leona Hemsley going on about how only "little people pay taxes", then the IRS came a knocking.

There are just people who love a nice bowl of schadenfreude. They feel MS needed bringing down a peg or two, and now have something to hold over her head.

Admire Ms. Stewart at 80 years old still chugging away, but wonder how much of it is to erase or put distance between her "unfortunate incarceration", and what comes afterward.
