A now former employee of Martha Stewart was recently given the pink slip for a comment he made about working for the head bitch of crafts.
Eddie Ross was quoted in the Times Business Day on what a typical shoot was like for Martha Stewart Living. Ross said there were "meetings about Pantone chip colors and meetings about meetings. It was just crazy, because who lives like this, in a $300,000 room I put together? I'm sorry, but I can't relate to a $40,000 mirrored coffee table."
The day the story ran, Eddie was suppose to be hosting a radio show on Martha's Sirius Radio channel but 2 hours before they went live he was given the boot.
Stewart's people declined to comment on the situation, but one source did say Martha wasn't responsible for the decision.
What's ironic is that even though Ross was fired for speaking to the press about Martha he's still talking about it!
After being let go Eddie didn't want to discuss the matter, but did say he doesn't regret giving the quote because it was the truth.
