Martha Wants To Be The Next Larry King

| Filed under: Martha Stewart

Now that Martha Stewart is the queen of daytime programming on the Hallmark Channel, she would like to use her pull to become an interviewer!

"My favorite interviewers are Larry King [and] Barbara Walters, both of whom are kind of retiring," said Martha. "Who's going to take their place as the serious, great interviewer? I'm throwing my name in there, because I love to talk to people."

Although we'd consider her a little stoic, she is beginning her efforts during a hour-long, primetime special on September 19th, entitled Martha Stewart Presents. She will be interviewing fashion designers Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg, Tory Burch and J. Crew's Jenna Lyons.

And she hopes this series will recur once a month!

"I'm attracted to groups of people," she said, adding that the next episode could center on "the hottest, sexiest, young male movie stars — who are they really, how do they live, how do they cope?. . .There's also my favorite comedians and how they come up with their material, how are they so talented and verbose and so fantastic?"

Other possible interviewees on her list are "outstanding examples of success and intelligence" such as Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.

Martha's goal is "to interview [people] in a new, different and friendly way . . . I love to do this stuff, it's more a pleasure than an effort for me."

    She'd be too annoying. Always interrupting her guests like Oprah does, they are know-it-alls.

    As much as I love Martha, I hate to say it, she has no interest in people. She relates well to pets though.

    Nancy Pelosi? Her name is already down in infamy! We don't need another liberal ass kisser. And ugly Michelle Antoinette? Her face is so mean and ugly I have to turn any magazine cover she's on around when I'm waiting in line at the grocery store. She is the epitome of asshole attitude. I can't wait until that lobster-eating trailer trash is out of the white house.

    Seems like she only wants to interview liberals… that's what brought Larry's audience into the dumper, Martha. You've got to have interview TOLERANCE and DIVERSITY.
