I really hope you choose not to play this role. I've had the pleasure of interviewing Martha and hosting her at my store in Toronto. Your performance was unrealistic, stiff and quite frankly untelling. It would be quite hard for us to believe a revamped martha as the first one was so unrealistic. Please let someone else have the chance.
I think playing the part Martha Stewart in the CBS TV movie is a big mistake because your portrayal of Martha Stewart in Martha Inc. on NBC was far less than that of which you are capable. Why appear in yet another low-budget TV Movie about her? Why portray someone using a negative and repitious script? How can you take part in such tabloid trash?
Assume that Christopher Byron, who wrote the awful & unauthorized biography of Ms. Stewart & other trash-like articles in the tabloid where he works, will be present at the filming to give the cast his "expect advice". Did you ever consider that his vengeful, vindictive and venonous manner may be applied toward you?
More-than-many refuse to watch CBS, at all now that they dropped Martha's appearances but especially MARTHA STEWART LIVING! It will be a long, long time before I tune in to CBS!
Also your physical appearance is nothing at all like the person "Martha" except for your mutal blondeness. You were incapable in the 1st TV movie of exhibiting any of her positive qualities & your portrayal of her opposite qualities were laughable. Why do another movie portraying Martha Stewart, another hastily thrown together film when others especially Candice Bergen could do a much better job?
Think about this, do you wish to be forever labeled as a "Martha basher" or the one that played Martha Stewart in yet another nade-for TV movie? Why not salvage you career now, while you can? Leave that to Byron who appears to consider himself an expert; he already has the corner on the above label.
It seems that the media has done an excellent job of relating the story of Martha rise to fame, her investigation, her trial and her time spent at Alderson, West Virginia Federal prison, at home, at work and just about anything & anywhere she goes. WE DON'T NEED MORE. Daily we search websites like
Marthatalks.com for GOOD NEWS about Martha. Before considering the portrayal of MARTHA STEWART again, please refer to them.
No no no! Not again!
All I can say is, Madam, when you begin the round of talk shows please keep in mind that you are no Martha Stewart. Past comparisons by youself to MS have only prompted a good chuckle from viewers.
Please don't play Martha again. If you do please don't present yourself the mean you you did in the last movie. Martha always has a happy look on her face, in the movie you looked as if she were frowning. Please note Martha NEVER fowns. thanks
If you do take the role to play Martha Stewart please do a better acting job and play her with the class she has brought into all our homes all these years. Martha is not a hash slinger as you portrayed her in the last so called movie.
CBS seeks to exploit you in their continued hostile agenda against Martha Stewart. Also, you are lacking in intellect and talents to portray fairly and do justice to our truly noble Martha Stewart. For the sake of your personal and professional dignity and the cause of decency in your profession, you are urged to decline the role and just say NO to CBS.
ENOUGH IS ENOUCH - GIVE US ALL A BREAK - DON'T DO ANOTHER MARTHA FILM
Dear Save Martha,
Martha should be allowed to go on with her life. This whole debacle was idiotic and ego laden. They say she was punished for lying to the federal government??? Excuse me but, didn't Bill Clinton do that publicly and which prison was he in? Martha should go on being just Martha, that is who we all rooted for and admire. All companies experience growth and change and who better than the woman who created it with her vision and strength can and should lead them through it? Whatever your belief with regard to her guilt or innocence, she has paid the debt she supposedly owed to society and should be left in peace to do whatever it is she wants to do with the blessing of everyone.
Dear Jay Leno,
I wonder Jay if it was Oprah in this position if you would continue with the bantering that you are heaping on Martha. Shame on you your retiring does not come soon enough for me. If you think well people still watch my show you are so wrong,I stopped when your jokes first started about Martha,I heard about your jokes from a friend and they to are disappointed in you. Linda Smith
Making jokes about Martha is your prerogative. I've heard Martha say that she doesn't mind if you and Dave Letterman do that because it's your job. But I think it's really tacky to mention Martha's name in the same sentence as Michael Jackson (a child molestor) and Enron executives who have destroyed the life savings of so many people.
I am so so so proud of you. You should never have spent a second in jail as far as I am concerned. I have been a fan from the beginning and let me say this you are a NOW A DAY HERO for women and I think that's what (pissed in everybody's post toasties) as my Grandpa used to say!!(The Big Bad Goverment and Male CEO's) They were just JEALOUS PERIOD!!!!! and for your success they wrongly persucuted you and I am truly truly sorry for that. As for the media well (ma'ma used to call some ppl) The Big One Eyed Green Monster got a hold of em and did a number on their little peabrains, that green monster went to town on what brains they had left. Some one VERY wise once said ....(and I quote) Forgive them Father for they know-not what they do........ So either they temporaily went insane or they are insanely JEALOUS. Sweet Martha You became BIG and Badder than any of them ever will ON YOUR OWN, it wasn't handed to you YOU EARNED IT FAIR AND SQUARE. and that's what made them FEAR you!
. So come girl ...Let's pick you up dust yourself off and this time Give em' a Double Whammy of Good ol' Martha Stewart Success. Because NO ONE and I mean NO ONE can do it as well as Martha Stewart can... I will and always will support and pray for you & your company & everyone who help's you. So Hold your Head High and Let's get you back in the saddle again...shoot for the Moon this time Martha us fans have your back all the way!!!!!!!
Most of all I got a BIG size 12 in men's cowboy boot to help you Kick em,Stomp em and send em home cryin to their mommies.....hehehehehehe YeeHaw and GOD BLESS MARTHA STEWART
