Blog: Lesson learnt?

Catherine Sleep | 4 March 2005

So Martha Stewart has been released after spending five months in a low-security prison for lying to investigators about a share deal.

The US housekeeping icon, who reportedly foraged for dandelion greens to improve prison food, flew home in a private jet ready to begin a further five months under house arrest. Despite still carrying out her sentence she will be able to continue working, and can even draw her US$900,000 salary.

Somehow house arrest doesn't seem so bad when you live on a 153-acre estate. Stewart will also be allowed out for 48 hours a week to continue with her job, which includes working on various media projects.

In a letter from jail posted on her website, Stewart mentioned the bad food, and said she was looking forward to getting back to cooking. Well she'll have plenty of time for that now. Under the conditions of her house arrest Stewart is allowed to throw dinner parties - just as long as she doesn't invite any criminals.
