Martha Meets The Press

Martha Stewart On Judgement Day

Choking back tears, Martha Stewart was sentenced to five months in prison Friday for lying about a stock sale. But the woman who saw her homemaking empire crippled over a single transaction, smiled boldly and bravely faced the cameras outside the courthouse to denounce the sentence, to pitch her company, and to vow, just like Arnold: "I'll be back."

Martha Objects

While she did not admit guilt in court - a move that could have jeopardized her appeal - Stewart took pains to tell U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum she was sorry others had been hurt by the scandal.
She did wax eloquently about the matter as she faced a barrage of media immediately after the sentencing:

"What was a small personal matter became over the last 2½ years an almost fatal circus event of unprecedented proportions spreading like oil over a vast landscape, even around the world," Stewart said.

Like oil over a vast landscape?!! She'd better start learning some new phrases to use in prison. Something more like:

"I been screwed, people! This is wacked!!"

Martha did manage to put a few plugs in for her magazine, encouraging all of her fans to buy a subscription to Martha Stewart Living, and that while in prison, she will be launching a new magazine: Martha Stewart Serving.

And when her 5 months have been served, she wants us all to forget this ugly little incident ever happened.

"Kinda Free Kinda Not...Martha!"

Five months is too lenient. I say "book her and cook her!"
