No Love Lost Between Donald Trump And Martha Stewart

Donald TrumpOuch. As if a prison sentence and a cancelled show weren’t bad enough, Martha Stewart now has to deal with Donald Trump’s wrath. Apparently, the business tycoon didn’t like when Martha attributed the failure of her show, The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, to its airing too close to the Trump mega-hit The Apprentice.

Donald Trump erupted in fury at Martha Stewart Tuesday for her polite suggestion in a weekend interview with Newsweek that her version of Trump’s hit show The Apprentice failed because it aired too close to his.

Stewart also said that she was asked to help get rid of Trump by firing him on air.

That was too much for “The Donald,” whose specialty is doing just that—firing people on air.

In an open letter to Stewart, Trump declared, “It’s about time you started taking responsibility for your failed version of The Apprentice. Your performance was terrible…the show lacked mood, temperament, and just about everything else a show needs for success. I knew it would fail as soon as I first saw it.”

Ms. Stewart was not amused.
