As it has been said time and time again in Hollywood, "any publicity is good publicity"! Martha Stewart will actually end up making more money after spending her 5 months in jail than had she just not made that stock transaction. Nothing like a HUGE payday for breaking the law!

MARTHA IS FREE
With a big smile and her daughter by her side, Martha Stewart said good-bye early Friday to the West Virginia countryside that has been her residence since last fall and headed home.
CNN Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin joins us to talk about the legal challenges still facing Stewart. He'll also tell us why the estate where Stewart will serve out her house arrest is so significant.
Since my mom is so fascinated with Martha, all who live in our house are inundated with the 24/7 Martha coverage -- even overtaking the current high-profile courtroom drama. At least 3 TVs in the house are tuned in to different channels that are carrying the constant coverage.
As far as I'm concerned, it's interesting for about 5 minutes, and then I'm done. I don't really care that Martha had a tuna casserole as her send-off meal at the prison. Whoop-de-doo.

This is hilarious. I always wanted to see how some rich and "moral" person would act in the given situation that she is in. Its incerdible that she actually made it through her time in prison.
Well, I have sympathy for Martha. I have never watched any of her shows, read any of her writings, made any of her crafts or cooked any of her recipes. However, I don't think she should have gone to jail. If she were a man, I do not think this would have happened. With all the charges leveled against her, the only one they managed to convict her on was lying. I don't think someone should go to jail for lying. I think that is a serious waste of my tax dollars. Yes, she was charged with many serious crimes, but none of those charges stuck. They were all thrown out of court by the Judge. The charges were trumped up against her to try to get her to give incriminating evidence against others in the case. She was being bullied. I don't think any government agency should be allowed to behave in such a way. So....
I say, good for Martha for surviving it so well. I hope she has continued success.

Martha Stewart is currently reveling in the fact that her ankle bracelet will come off later today (actually tomorrow 12:05am) and she has been saying that she plans to resume her show in a different light. I am anxious to see if she will still have this 'brown nose' attitude that many have accused her of having in the past.
