Martha Stewart was a demanding mother who forced her child to wrap her own presents and often pees with the door open. So daughter Alexis has revealed in a new memoir, "Whateverland: Learning to Live Here."
How does the domestic guru feel about this book's release? Just fine, thanks, she said today on the Hallmark Channel's Martha.
"How many Google alerts have I gotten in the last couple days?" Martha joked on-air, adding that she read the book "a month and a half ago... It is hilarious [and] enlightening."
Alexis has backed off statements made in the tell-all a bit, saying to Us Weekly that many are an "exaggeration of the truth." But, regardless, Martha says she has nothing to be ashamed of:
"I must have instilled in her some good habits. She's tall, beautiful, gorgeous and mother of baby Jude and that's all that counts. The book is out late October wherever books are sold. I encourage you to buy it, read and make it a best seller."
