NEWS FLASH: Martha Stewart Released From Prison

March 4th, 2005 // 5 Comments

“The experience of the last five months … has been life altering and life affirming,” Stewart said in a statement issued on her Web site. “Someday, I hope to have the chance to talk more about all that has happened, the extraordinary people I have met here and all that I have learned.”

I assume she wasn’t talking about lesbian love. The domestic goddess is no longer an inmate of prison, she’ll now be an inmate of her home – well sort of.

For the next five months, Stewart must wear an electronic anklet so authorities can track her every move. But she is allowed to receive her $900,000 salary again and can leave home for up to 48 hours a week to work, shop or run other approved errands.

Her journey home began about 12:30 a.m. Friday, when two dark-windowed sport utility vehicles slipped out the gates of the women’s prison in Alderson, W.Va., and drove to a nearby airport.

There, Stewart — casually dressed in a gray-and-white poncho, dark jeans and ankle boots — smiled and waved to supporters as she walked across the runway and boarded the plane for New York. [via AP]

Hopefully the dark demons she had to deal with in prison won’t obscure her skills in making the prefect meal.

    Wasn’t F. Fekkai supposed to care of Martha’s roots before she left prison? Nice job.
