Former Jailbird, And Jersey Girl, Martha Stewart Is Coming To HSN July 19

Lifestyle doyenne Martha Stewart, who hails from our former town of Nutley, N.J., is coming to HSN, debuting her Martha Stewart Living line July 19.

Stewart, who did jail time for a little criminal charge involving stock trading, several years ago had a line on QVC. We remember seeing her on-air with Kathy Levine, that’s how long ago it was, and ol’ Martha was quite prickly and nasty. She didn’t last too long on the No. 1 home shopping channel.

On Facebook Sunday HSN host Colleen Lopez posted about Stewart’s debut July 19, and we checked the HSN website and several of Stewart’s items are already on there.

Those include an American flag, “patriotic” tubs, handheld flags and banners. The stuff is perfect for the Fourth of July, so we’re surprised that Stewart’s debut isn’t until July 19.

Lopez said she can’t wait to meet Martha.

This HSN deal isn’t all that Martha has cooking. Her company did a deal earlier this year to produce daytime programming for the Hallmark Channel. That programming starts airing in the fall, with Stewart’s signature “The Martha Stewart Show” moving to Hallmark.

We have a soft spot in our heart for Stewart, and not because we’re into cooking or home decor. She is from Jersey, and you know that endears her to us. She is from the working class town of Nutley, where we lived for about a dozen years while we were working for The Herald-News.

And we like Stewart because her birthday is Aug. 3, the same as our niece Sydney. Two Leos.

    i agree with you re: soft spot for Martha……but not for the same reason as yours……i must say, i used to make fun of her and those who hung onto her every word…..but her trial, the charge, the lying, the eventual jailtime, well, i changed my tune. She adapted to jail; she befriended those within the jail and i think she learned something; i like her now and knew at some point, she would only do better after her jail time. She was a self-made billionaire, lost some of it, and is now regaining. I applaud her and I even watch her programs sometimes on Sunday morning and I learn some things. She still is a bit hard to take sometimes in large doses, but I think she is inspirational, really…..i wish her success and she knows how to sell a brand, doesnt she?
