Stars Take Stands on Stewart Verdict
Martha Stewart headed back to court In New York, Monday, to meet with her probation officer, but Friday’s verdict is already the hot topic among the stars.
Cybill Shepherd played Stewart in the TV movie and when we caught up with her at the TV Land Awards, Cybill shared her mixed feelings about Stewart's fate: "I feel sorry for her, but I think she got what she deserved."
At the junket for Jim Carrey’s new movie "Eternal Sunshine
of the Spotless Mind," Carrey had no problem joking about
the situation. "Martha will be all right," Carrey
said. "She’s going to doll that jail cell up something
fierce; it’ll be gorgeous."
Stewart’s verdict quickly became fodder for the late night comics. Leno said, "Here’s a copy of her new magazine, called ‘Big House and Garden.’"
At the NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles, Monique had a message for Stewart: "Martha, call me. You didn't know, baby. You just happened to be on the phone when things were going crazy. I'm on your side."
At the "Secret Window" premiere in New York, Maria Bello was sympathetic. "I feel really sad for her, hanging her out to dry, crucifying her."
But Charles Dutton was just angry. "There are much bigger fish to fry than Martha Stewart," he said. "Particularly over $50,000."
At an evening honoring Barbra Streisand, "Queer Eye’s" Carson Kressley had fun mourning Stewart. "I’m still too upset to talk about it," he laughed. "I’m saddened. I’m deeply saddened."
