Our friends over at the Cut examined Martha Stewart’s enviable level of confidence and entrepreneurial spirit, which have brought her back into court. “In the holy trinity of single-name American power women (Hillary, Oprah, Martha), Martha alone is completely unapologetic about her successes and her failures,” writes Ann Friedman. “She refuses to care whether we all want to be her besties. She just wants us to embrace her ideas about the domestic arts, then take out our credit cards.” Stewart’s violation of her exclusivity deal with Macy’s, and her decision to hurt business for Oprah, Rosie O’Donnell, Ina Garten, and others, are only the most recent indicators of her “zero-fucks-given attitude.” [Earlier, Cut]
