Rosie O'Donnell Crusades Against Martha Stewart's Conviction
Rosie O’Donnell is rip-roaring mad about the soon-to-be-sentenced Domestic
Diva. "What did Martha Stewart do?" asked Rosie. "She accepted a call from
her stockbroker. Now she is a convicted felon."
Rosie, who spoke her mind during Thursday’s "Sharon Osbourne Show," insisted that the conviction came about only because Martha is a woman. "I think the women in America should be infuriated, they should write a letter," O’Donnell told Osbourne. "For the federal government to try to convince us that the face of corporate malfeasance is that of a woman is a bald-faced lie."
Meanwhile, it certainly seems like Stewart is making amends -- for something: she has been spotted, more than once, going to church near her East Hampton home.
Susan Houriet, Deputy Editor for In Touch Weekly magazine, says Stewart may be putting her holy house in order just in case she's sent to prison. "Martha has found God," Houriet told us. "It’s interesting that Martha went to church, but she didn’t go to mass. It is a Roman-Catholic church, there are confessionals."
Ironically, Martha Stewart the business is getting even better. K-Mart just signed on again to carry the homemaker's products, and sales of Martha’s furniture line are way up since the conviction.
And the ImClone shares that Stewart sold, causing the criminal concern, would now be worth a lot more money. The stock hit a one-year high today after the Food and Drug Administration approved its new cancer drug.
Stewart will be sentenced on June 17th.
