Martha Stewart: Slammed by Daughter in New Book

by at . Comments

She claims to be the perfect homemaker, but a new book calls into question Martha Stewart as a perfect mother. And the author of this book? Martha's daughter, Alexis.

The 46-year old slams her famous parent in "Whateverland: Learning to Live Here," writing of her childhood: "If I didn't do something perfectly, I had to do it again. I grew up with a glue gun pointed at my head."

Whateverland: Learning to Live Here

Labeling the domestic television goddess as "not interesting in being kid-friendly," Alexis goes into detail about Martha's Christmas present philosophy (""She used to make me wrap my own presents...") and hypocritical shoe removal demands.

"My mother has a sign on all of her doors to take your shoes off," Alexis writes. "For god's sake! My mother's dogs p--s and s--t on her rugs and she's telling people to take their shoes off?"

Alexis also crosses the TMI line with this entry:

"[She] always peed with the door open. I remember saying, 'You know, now I have friends over! You can't do that anymore! It's gotta stop! My friends' parents don't do it! Give me a break here! I don’t feel like being embarrassed! It's exhausting! I'm a kid! Stop!'"

Still, despite this randomly published complaints, Alexis actually dedicates the memoir to her mother and says there are no hard feelings. Martha apparently agrees, saying of her child:

"She's her own person. She makes up her own mind."


Lol I'm just laughing. She's so angry she wrote a book, making $$ off that same mummy's fame :-) not to mention the day Martha kicks the bucket... There she will be with her hands open to spend some of mommys fortune... Haha these ppl kill me yes *wipes eyes*


Martha, you are greeedy, and it sounds like you home life suffered,welcome to trailer trash heaven


She knows no better than to count on you...what..could you imagine??? No wonder she feels left out, (you) her mom had no time for her and had agendas, no wonder she sold her mom out and made her own any cost. just to live.


No mothers are perfect, but they are still mothers..most of america..luv their kids right, they're respectful, and loving and mess up sometime..but they are still good..sorry I had sooooo...much money and got beat and took my kids and left the $$$$$$$$$$$$$. Time for your daughter to achieve....guess you are not on her wonder you lost her. Did you ever change a diaper?


im not suprised. It is martha afterall.


Maybe it's time to quit your bellyaching about your Mom, and oh quit making a living bellyaching about your Mom and get a job where you earn your own money doing something more independent of Martha Stewart. Maybe you'll be happier.


I agree with you Leo. I just find it hard to respect someone who writes a "tell all" about someone. Especially their own mother, whether the relationship is/was a good or bad one. Then on top of that, if and when the books sell, she'll make money from it too!! It's a cheap and sleazy way to earn a buck. I just think it's tacky. Everyone could publicly find something they didn't like about what their parents did but we don't all put it in writing and sell it. That should be personal and private.
