America’s domestic primadonna Martha Stewart has become a household name for us from her tumbling beginnings as a glamour star beauty, to successful business executive, to broadcasting personality and eventually to tumbling convict. The 77-year-old media mogul has published over 100 books in her time, quickly rising in the scene as a prominent craft, cooking, and home decor expert.
But the New Jersey native is not ready to hand the spotlight over just yet. She recently let it slip during a recent panel this past Tuesday at the American Magazine Media Conference in New York that an autobiography just might be her next venture for the upcoming three years.
Between her professional career and her questionable antics, the woman definitely has a heck of a lot of ground to cover. Think Oprah Winfrey and Rosie O'Donnell. Martha Stewart ranks high amongst females creating innovative new media franchises. Capitalizing on her fame as an influential figure, Stewart launched her own magazine, Martha Stewart Living which has since been acquired by Meredith and still has a loyal readership. From Martha-approved DIY advice to guidance on how to live our most crafty and tasty lives, the publication truly reflects the pretty and blissful way that Stewart seeks to promote: a “living for the now” recipe to a beautiful life.
Putting aside for a moment her long withheld reputation as a lifestyle guru, Martha Stewart has definitely taken a few of her own turns about the gutter. Making a number of financial headlines over the years, Stewart ran head-on with the law when an indictment charged her with fraud, obstruction of justice, and conspiracy, making false statements against authorities. For this, Stewart was sentenced to five months in prison in 2004 and 2005. Also, what about her rise to hip and cool blondie puffing it up with rapper, Snoop Dogg at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber; an event which resulted in Stewart getting socially appropriately high.
As a young girl modeling to pay her way through Bernard college to becoming America’s first female self-made millionaire, Stewart’s up and coming autobiography is sure to make big bucks when it hits newsstands, predictably exceeding the success of her latest bestseller, How to Do Almost Everything, published by Houghton Mifflin.
