Martha, Martha

Today's extra quote: Martha is under house arrest for 5 months. Did you know a suicide watch was set up? Not for her, but for her staff... And you know who called her first as soon as she got out? Michael Jackson. He wanted to know what it was like being a white woman in prison.

Yeah, ok seriously. Whatever happened to wrongdoers shouldn't profit from their acts? Her stock has more than tripled since her release, and she is now valued at over $1 billion. Snap. This woman was earning $0.40/hr just a few weeks ago on cleaning duty. Anyway, not only all this, but she has a book deal in the works, 2 network shows (not one, but two), and an expansion of her furniture line. Apparently, she's going to be the new high-end Ikea. That's an oxymoron if I ever heard one. And what's up with the two network shows? Do we really need to see her on every channel telling us how to live like her? I really don't think that we need tips for insider trading. Oh yeah, and Donald Trump better watch out. Producers are talking about giving Martha her own version of the Apprentice. I feel sorry for the future contestants already. No man can be bitchy as a woman.
