But even Martha Stewart couldn't live up to her own standards. Perhaps a little jail time may have been just what the domestic doyenne's image needed. Stewart leaves jail with two television shows in the works and comes back to a company whose stock price is soaring, even as it faces big losses.
Martha Stewart is still in hot water. She's got a strong new executive at the helm of her company, she's appealing her criminal conviction and could still face a civil suit by the Security Exchange Commission.
Tune in to hear about the new world and life of ex-convict Martha Stewart.
