Martha Stewart


No wonder everyone has forgotten about Martha Stewart’s prison stint, back when it happened it hardly seemed real in the first place. Had it happened today, we’d probably think it was some extended Jimmy Kimmel prank designed to generate views on Youtube. Stewart was convicted of insider trading back in 2004, and spent years making her comeback, finally being placed back on the board of directors of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia in 2011. We barely remember this now, but back in 2004 it generated months and months worth of late night talk show opening monologue jokes, and a ton of material for b-grade stand-up comics.
