Martha Stewart: Hi, I'm Martha Stewart. Sometimes we learn something new about orchids. But today we're going to learn an entirely new recipe with lima beans. Are you kidding me? Where are the lima beans? I'm sitting here talking about lima beans, and there aren't any? Someone on my staff forgot to put out the lima beans? Excuse me?! Why is everyone here so stupid?

The real Martha is far more entertaining.
20 May 2003 | by (Minneapolis) – See all my reviews

So was the E! True Hollywood Story. As with the Lucy biopic, the life of Martha Stewart does not lend itself to dramatic presentation, as interesting as her life may have been.

Also, she is a character that lends herself more to caricature than real imitation. It's impossible. Cybill Sheperd gives it a try, but all she manages to do is look passably like her.

If one of the Martha Stewart reruns had been on the Home and Garden channel, I would have changed channels and watched that. It would have been a lot more entertaining!
