Posted:oh now i feel old. too many people there asked 'who's martha stewart?'! eek

hehe...but to be slightly helpful - check out marthastewart.com. it's all there! (probably not the jail stuff though! ubblol )

for those sloths like me (i haven't actually looked at that site, just typed it in to see if it worked!) martha is like a homemaker's guru. she has recipes, tips for cleaning, craft and all kinds of other crap! she kinda disturbs me actually! ubblol


do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good to eat!

if at first you do succeed, try not to look too astonished!

smile! grin it confuses people!

Posted:Hey, if you guys are going to insist on listening to our music, eating our fast food and copying our foreign policies you could at least keep up on our celeb drama.

Martha Stuart is an American 'Homemaker' who made her fortune though 'how to' shows (like cooking shows but for fixing up your home and making cute desserts)

She was recently convicted of insider trading. She sold stock in her own company when she recieved bad news about it.

6 months in a minimum security prison.


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:Wow, Martha Stewart a Federal Inmate, lmao now I've heard/seen everything. Wait, no I probably haven't. Anyhoo, I had to laugh when I read about this going down to start with. Someone that sooooo many people 'looked up to' using insider information. Almost as bad as when Clinton admitted he'd smoked dak etc. Oh no, just proved that they're all too human and can make 'mistakes'.

nice to see that nobody is perfect.

Wow, I know about Martha and I'm all the way in NZ, scary.

ooooooo thats fighting talk that is....
If you guys bothered to identify your targets before blowing the crap out of them with great big bombs and missiles and stuff we might have a few more soldiers to cover your ass when you get all gung ho and charge infantry into the face of extremists with machine guns... Durrr

Yeah sure you rescued our ass in WWII, and dont colour me ungrateful, but you really havent mastered the art of not getting people killed, have you?

Sorry about the flame!!! redface

Anyhoo, i might eat fast food occasionally, but I think we have enough music over here thanks (you just buy up all the airtime, its not OUR fault) and as for foreign policies, please... Who "conquered" Iraq? We are a peacekeeping force...

Anyways, its still funny if this homemaking guru winds up in clink...

Posted:True story: I was working with a film crew yesterday that used to do interviews with CBS (an American t.v. station) and the sound guy left her microphone going when she went off the set. He recorded everything that she said and passed the tape on to his buddies. He said that as soon as she was off the air, every other word out of her mouth was motherf&$@er and a$$hole. She's supposedly the meanest bit@h and yells at everyone who works for her. Funny how her celebrity persona is this sweet, caring homemaker. She also made her underlings move the sound and camera cables once every 5 minutes so that they wouldn't make dents in her perfect lawn.

Personally, I'm glad to see that she got what she deserved!

Posted:actually - it wasn't insider trading of her own company - she benefitted from short-selling stock in a biotech that was going to be denied FDA approval a week later.

not that anyone really cares about the specifics.

i know it's fun to beat up on celebs, but I've done some research on this one, and I think she's being unfairly crucified. she didn't even do the trading - it was done on her behalf by a young investment manager who was trying to impress ms. stewart with big returns - i think he may have even been a relative of hers.

bah - nobody really cares - people just want to point and laugh when something bad happens to a celebrity

Posted:No I'm not a lawmaker, but I do believe she deserves to go to prison for breaking the law. The fact is that there is proof that Martha Stewart told Peter Bacanovic to sell her shares of ImClone once he told her that the company wasn't going to get FDA approval. You need to do your research before criticizing people. They convicted her on the PROOF of the email that she sent him telling him to dump her shares as soon as possible. What, are you so naive to think that she just magically had this "moment of clarity" where she said, Gee I think I'll dump all of my shares in this medical company today because I'm so good at predicting the medical industry that I don't think ImClone will get FDA approval.

I live in the United States and I'm the Director of Research for the 4th largest financial services company in the country (just in case you want my credentials). The woman has a company worth over a billion dollars and her personal worth is several hundred million. Yes, she would've taken a hit, but it only would've been a fraction of what she's worth. Once again, it's nice to see that even CELEBRITIES can be served justice when they think they are above the law.
