What? Martha Stewart wasn't a perfect mother?!?!?!?!?
Apparently, Martha was a MUCH-less-than-perfect mother according to a new tell-all book by her daughter Alexis Stewart.
Here's what Alexis wrote about her mother in her book Whateverland: Learning to Live Here:
"Martha does everything better! You can't win. If I didn't do something perfectly, I had to do it again…I grew up with a glue gun pointed at my head."
"Martha was not interested in being kid friendly. She used to make me wrap my own presents. She would hand me things right before Christmas and say, 'Now wrap these but don't look inside.'"
And here's Alexis on Halloween with Momma Martha:
"There were no costumes. There was no anything. We turned off all the lights and pretended we weren’t home."
Yikes! Here are some other tidbits Alexis wrote about her mother in the book:
- Martha urinates with the bathroom door open often
- She NEVER kept prepared foods in the house when Alexis was a child
- Martha is a hoarder
- She had a "very hands-off approach to child rearing"
- When Alex hit puberty, Martha would not buy her a bra
Despite the fact that the book may be largely anti-Martha, it appears that the two actually get along pretty well these days. In fact, Alexis actually dedicated her tell-all to her momma!
Perhaps Martha will appreciate the fact that Alexis Stewart is doing whatever it takes to make some $$$. She can probably relate! Ha!
