Martha is Interviewed at 92nd Street YMCA

Image

In this video, a relaxed Martha is interviewed by Bravo TV’s Andy Cohen. (Yes, Martha dutifully answers the “Shag, Marry, Kill” question!)  I’m alway amazed at how even-keeled and relaxed Martha is during interviews, given all the is going on at MSLO these days. After so many years in business, she seems well-equipped and able to weather ANYTHING that comes her way. Go get ’em, Martha!

Fun stuff, right? Read Martha’s thoughts on the interview, and see photos, on The Martha Stewart Blog.

Martha Graces the Cover of Parade Magazine

Image

Martha amazes on the cover of today’s Parade Magazine. Stunning at age 71, Martha also gives an insightful interview that you can read here. (You simply MUST scroll down to see the photo of Martha with her grandkids. Martha is clearly IN LOVE with those kids!) For an extra bit of fun, you can watch this behind-the-scenes video of the cover photo shoot. FOMs: What I love about Martha are those moments when the driven, hardworking girl from Nutley, NJ peeks through all the celebrity that surrounds her. Just. Plain. Awesome.

From the article, Martha says of her new book, “Living the Good Long Life“:

It’s all about surviving in this extraordinary world—physically, mentally, emotionally. I wrote it because nobody is paying attention to the silver tsunami of baby boomers who are now turning 65. My book focuses on what you can do for others and what you can do for yourself in terms of aging gracefully.

Martha on The Today Show: Makes Meatloaf and Discusses Trial

Martha Stewart is interviewed on The Today Show, March 6, 2013

On Wednesday, Martha stopped by The Today Show and, as she regularly does, taped a cooking segment–for Big Martha’s Meatloaf. During her visit, she also spent a moment to sit with Matt Lauer for an very difficult interview. Lauer was pretty tough on Martha–but Martha was unfazed. She answered with typical aplomb, defending her company’s mission to offer products wherever customers want them. She was also characteristically diplomatic, choosing her words carefully to describe her thoughts about Macy’s CEO, Terry Lundgren. Lundgren famously hung up on Martha when she phoned to let him know about the new partnership with JC Penney.

The interview was preceded by this video, a short piece covering Martha’s appearance in court the day before. According to this report, the trial could finish by Friday of this week. If it does not, it may be as late as sometime in April before the judge rules on the lawsuit.

From the transcript of the interview:

Lauer: Do you believe your products in [JC Penney] stores could help turn around that company?

Martha: Well, as I said yesterday, [JC Penney CEO] Ron Johnson is a visionary. Ron Johnson worked very hard on all those fantastic Apple stores. He also had a lot to do with the great success of Target before that. Ron is a visionary. He is trying to reimagine the retail landscape, and that’s a big job. And he has not been given any time at all to do so. It takes a little while to rebuild something like a JC Penney; a monolith like that.

Lauer: We are going to follow this story, Martha. Thank you for coming in this morning. I know it wasn’t easy for you to sit down and do this.

Martha: Well, thank you very much. And I’m going to go home and make meatloaf! (laughs)

Martha on NPR’s “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me!”

This is a delightful interview with Martha that aired on the NPR program, “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me”. The interview is followed by a short game or quiz about quirky crafts. Of course, Martha shows her trademark quick wit and good humor. I promise you this: Martha will surprise even her most ardent fans with some things they did not know about her. Enjoy, FOMs!

You can also read the transcript of the interview here.

From the NPR website:

For 30 years, Martha Stewart has been teaching people how to be classy, useful, attractive and elegant, with her books, TV shows, magazines and websites. Though we’d like her to declare Wait Wait one of her trademark “good things,” we can’t promise that’s going to happen. Stewart is known for helping people come up with great do-it-yourself projects, so we’ve invited her to play a game called “It’s a bad thing.”

In Her Own Words: “Philanthropy” (video)

In this video, Martha discusses her philanthropic passion for providing care for older Americans. You may already know about The Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, to which Martha has donated quite generously donated. Based on Martha’s passion for this subject, we can expect much media attention surrounding Martha’s upcoming book, “Living the Good Long Life”, which  will be published in May 7, 2013.

From Forbes.com:

Stewart reminds that one’s greatest impact on the world comes when passion and a clear purpose are aligned. “I see people in their 90’s that are smiling and happy that they finally have a place to go where someone cares for them. It is very important to me that people feel cared for, feel nurtured. It’s hard to say feel loved, but just cared for” – a fitting mission to describe all that Stewart does as both a businesswoman and philanthropist.

Martha Stewart on choosing one final meal: “Probably good, fresh eggs…delicious salad from the garden”

Martha seems so relaxed in this delightful interview with Piers Morgan on CNN. In this clip, she discusses what she’d eat (and drink) for her last meal. Of course, we FOMs already knew that eggs were Martha’s favorite food, right?

From CNN.com:

“If I was very hungry and I was told that I only had an hour?,” she clarified the question. “I probably wouldn’t be thinking about eating, Piers, but…”

“What would you start with?,” wondered the host.

“Probably good, fresh eggs. Delicious salad from the garden,” Stewart shared. “Boiled, scrambled. Just a really good farm butter.”

“And the main course, what would you have?” he followed up.

“That’s my main course,” she concluded.
