Martha on Charlie Rose

Martha Stewart was on Charlie Rose last night. In the half-hour interview, Martha reveals some of her new goals and discusses what "being Martha" is all about. She talks about her daughter, Alexis, her views on marriage, becoming a billionaire again and taking Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia to new heights of glory. She also mentions plans to further expand her brand on an international level. Indonesia, Brazil and Turkey are three of the latest countries to receive the Martha Stewart brand.

Also be sure to check out Martha's past appearances on Charlie Rose: 1995, 1997 and 1999.)

Was there anything revelatory said? I didn't expect Charlie to toss Martha any curveballs, given the history they have together, both personally and professionally.

Hey Andrew, the second link took me to marthastewart.com - was that right. I tried searching under 'Martha Stewart' but that brought up a gizzilion results! Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Pru, Sorry about that!! It was my fault. Both links should take you to charlierose.com where you can search "Martha Stewart" to find all four interviews that she's done over the years.

Thanks Andrew. I have now watched it. I like Martha interviews. And I thought this was good. But I don't understand why she isn't broadening her international links over to the UK. We could honestly do with someone like her, and I wonder how much of Martha Stewart Indonesia and Turkey really want. But I am just desperate to see more Martha in the UK. Currently we have nothing apart from Wedgwood and the magazines. But I do think her bedding in Macy's is expensive and might not be bought at that price in the UK.

yes there was something revelatory --- Martha said we are making VOC paints -- do you know what that means ?? they are environmentally friendly !! Martha they are environmentally friendly ONLY if they are LOW VOV or Zero VOC --- VOC do you know it means??? Volatile Organic compounds !!!!!!! You tried Andrew -- I loved watching the promo for the Production Red Outstanding -- but i did find martha Charlie Rose is one of the only interviewers that asks FOLLOW UP questions it shows HE is LISTENING

Thanks for posting the interview Andrew. I know she's so busy but it would be a dream to be able to sit in on a business seminar given by Martha. I'm busy building my own internet based start up company and just listening to her inspires me to work even harder.

What I noticed in the comments that people posted there was how angry and bitter so many people are. Martha worked hard for what she has and bounced back from her legal situation yet some people would rather see her still suffer. They waste valuable energy projecting their own deficiencies onto Martha.

That's so precisely true, Sonya. Martha is an inspiration, through and through. I don't understand why people waste their time (and ours) spewing anger. It's so very boring and pointless. I'm glad you enjoyed the interview!
