On Martha's daytime show today, she told Bette Midler that she doesn't sleep. She mentioned that her doctor says that she doesn't have to sleep as long as she eats a healthy diet and gets plenty of exercise. What kind of doctor is that? Isn't sleep required
for the body to function?
I'm so confused right now... unless she was joking (which it didn't sound like she was), Martha Stewart just said that she doesn't sleep.crossposted to prithee

Martha on Larry King
Martha had Larry King on her show a week or so ago, and tonight she appeared on his show... her first post-imprisonment interview. She finally talks about her stay in prison, her appeal, her poncho (!), and her new ventures including her primetime Apprentice spinoff and her new book The Martha Rules
If you didn't catch it, check CNN
for a transcript and try to keep abreast of Larry's guests, because he and Martha are great friends and she appears on his show several times a year.

The new "Martha" show premiered today. It was only the first show but I have mixed feelings about it. I think I prefer her old format better where she was able to show us more and do more. I watch Martha because I want her ideas and to watch how she does things. I wasn't really interested in watching the bumbling Desperate housewife prepare scrambled eggs. It was funny at times but as the show ended, I felt hungry for more information and more Martha-esque things such as detail and perfection.

New Member so, like, hi!
Great picture of Martha with the Lilacs! Nice job! I have been a fan of Martha's since I was 16 and can't believe the hooey with this jail time and home confinement. It's absolute lunacy. Oh well, she only has until the 31st to deal with that BS and then she's free. Did anyone read the August 2005 Vanity Fair interview she gave? Inspiring is all I have to say! Current Mood: mellow

a holiday message from Martha
When one is incarcerated with 1,200 other inmates, it is hard to be selfish at Christmas -- hard to think of Christmases past and Christmases future -- that I know will be as they always were for me -- beautiful! So many of the women here in Alderson will never have the joy and wellbeing that you and I experience. Many of them have been here for years -- devoid of care, devoid of love, devoid of family.
I beseech you all to think about these women -- to encourage the American people to ask for reforms, both in sentencing guidelines, in length of incarceration for nonviolent first-time offenders, and for those involved in drug-taking. They would be much better served in a true rehabilitation center than in prison where there is no real help, no real programs to rehabilitate, no programs to educate, no way to be prepared for life "out there" where each person will ultimately find herself, many with no skills and no preparation for living.
I am fine, really. I look forward to being home, to getting back to my valuable work, to creating, cooking, and making television. I have had time to think, time to write, time to exercise, time to not eat the bad food, and time to walk and contemplate the future. I've had my work here too. Cleaning has been my job – washing, scrubbing, sweeping, vacuuming, raking leaves, and much more. But like everyone else here, I would rather be doing all of this in my own home, and not here -- away from family and friends.
I want to thank you again, and again, for your support and encouragement. You have been so terrific to me and to everyone who stood by me. I appreciate everything you have done, your emails, your letters, and your kind, kind words.

Martha Stewart was sentenced to five months in prison and two years' probation Friday for lying to investigators about her sale of ImClone Systems stock in late 2001.
Federal Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum also ordered Stewart to serve five months of home confinement after her release and fined the lifestyle expert $30,000.
The sentence was the minimum the judge could impose under federal sentencing guidelines. The fine, while relatively small given Stewart's wealth, was the maximum allowed under federal rules.
Hours later, Peter Bacanovic, Stewart's former broker at Merrill Lynch, also was sentenced to five months in prison and two years' probation; he was fined $4,000.
Neither Stewart nor Bacanovic will be headed to prison anytime soon, however. The judge issued a stay delaying their sentences until a court rules on their expected appeals, a process that could take nine months or longer.
Martha said this outside the courthouse after the sentencing:
"I'd like to make a brief statement.
This is a shameful day. It's shameful for me and for my family, and for my beloved company, and for all of its employees and partners.
What was a small personal matter became over the last 2 years an almost fatal circus event of unprecedented proportions.
I have been choked and almost suffocated to death during that time, all the while more concerned about the well being of others than for myself. More hurt for them and for their losses than for my own. More worried for their futures than for the future of Martha Stewart the person.
More than 200 people have lost their jobs at my company, as a result of this situation. I want them to know how very very sorry I am, for them and their families.
I would like to thank everybody who stood by me, who wished me well, waved to me on the street like these lovely people over here, smiled at me, called me, wrote to me. We received thousands of support letters and more than 170,000 e-mails to marthatalks.com. And I appreciate each and every one of those pieces of correspondence. I really feel good about it.
Perhaps all of you out there can continue to show your support by subscribing to our magazine, by buying our products, by encouraging our advertisers to come back in full force to our magazine.
Our magazines are great. They deserve your support. And whatever happened to me personally shouldn't have any effect whatsoever on the great company Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
And I don't want to use this as a sales pitch for my company, but we love that company, we worked so hard on that company. And we really think it merits great attention from the American public.
And I'll be back. I will be back.
Whatever I have to do in the next few months, I hope the months go by quickly.
I'm used to all kinds of hard work, as you know, and I'm not afraid. I'm not afraid whatsoever. I'm just very very sorry that it's come to this, that a small personal matter has been able to be blown out of all proportion, and with such venom and such gore. I mean it's just terrible.
We are going to appeal, so I'm not going to talk about the case. I want to thank Bob Morvillo and his whole team for doing the very best job they could do in defending me."
Martha is to appear on tonight's episode of 20/20
with Barbara Walters at 10pm (9pm CST). She will also take your calls on Monday's episode of Larry King Live
only on CNN.

Martha's Hearing Set For Friday
NEW YORK (AP) -- Martha Stewart and her former stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, are expected to be sentenced separately on Friday, a clerk for the sentencing judge said Tuesday.
Stewart will be sentenced at 10 a.m. ET and Bacanovic will be sentenced at 2:30 p.m. ET, a clerk for U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum said. Both sentencings had previously been scheduled for 10 a.m.
There was no immediate explanation for why the sentencings were separated.
Prosecutors declined to comment, and a Stewart spokeswoman did not immediately return a call.
Each defendant is expected to get 10 to 16 months in prison after being convicted of lying to the government about why Stewart sold 3,928 shares of ImClone Systems Inc. stock in late 2001, just before the price plunged.
Last week, Cedarbaum denied new-trial requests from both defendants based on allegations that a government witness from their first trial lied on the witness stand.
The judge said there was "no reasonable likelihood" that the allegedly perjured testimony could have affected the jury's verdict.
Stewart and Bacanovic had asked for a new trial after prosecutors accused Secret Service ink expert Larry Stewart of lying repeatedly on the witness stand during the trial in February.
Larry Stewart, no relation to Martha Stewart, was accused of lying when he said he participated in ink-analysis testing of a worksheet prepared by Bacanovic of stocks in Martha Stewart's portfolio.
Bacanovic was acquitted of a charge of falsifying a document.

MARTHA STEWART'S GOING DOWN
Hi, My name is Daimiel and I'm a Marthaholic
|Monday, March 8th, 2004|
...Shocked & Appalled...
Hi everyone. I come to you with some bad news. I live in the Chicago area and the CBS affiliate here, WBBM channel 2 has decided to stop airing Martha Stewart Living
. Now, at age 20, I'm probably not your typical Martha fan, but I've been watching her for years. Not even my own mother watches her show! I've followed it from 2 in the afternoon, to 9 am, to the last time slot; 12:30 am. Please send them an e-mail by clicking the link below!
I have gone as far as threatening to boycott CBS 2. In all honesty, Living
is the only reason I watch CBS. Please join me in the fight!
