We’d like to thank Martha Stewart for letting loose and giving LoHud Lowdown so much to talk about in 2013. We didn’t know what the domestic diva, 72, would do next— and that’s a “good thing!”
Here are seven of the Westchester resident’s wackiest (and most surprising) moments of 2013!
1. She admitted she can roll “the perfect joint.”
There are countless things Martha Stewart can do well: create a beautiful scrapbook, bake a delicious pie…roll the perfect joint!
During an on-stage interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen at Manhattan’s 92nd Street in June, Martha was asked if she knows how to roll one. She replied: “I was driving here tonight…and there was this stupid ice cream truck in front of me…We pulled up right next to it…and a girl and a guy were smoking joints…I said, ‘Boy, those are sloppy joints…Of course, I know how to roll a joint!”
She added: “We passed by them too quickly for me to ask for a little [puff].”
2. She said she’s a sexter.
Martha was on a roll! A couple of weeks after talking joints with Andy, she confessed in a hilarious interview on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” that she has sexted naughty messages in the past. TMI? You haven’t heard everything yet! When asked if she has ever had a threesome, the media mogul replied, “maybe.”
3. She threw a Twitter fit over a broken iPad.
Oh, Martha! The billionaire took to Twitter on to complain about poor Apple customer service after she accidentally shattered the glass on her iPad in September.
“I am still waiting for an apple rep to come pick up my IPad. No action yey,” she complained. (We didn’t correct her spelling or capitalization.) “Maybe I have had a good entrepreneurial idea? Apple Now? Like same day delivery from Amazon? I think I am on to something. Same day fixit!!!” (Three exclamation points means she was probably mad!)
But did mad Martha mean sour Apple?
“I cannot believe that Apple Public Relations is mad at me for tweeting about my Ipad and how to get it fixed! steve jobs gave it to me!” she whined after media outlets picked up the story. “I will deal with it all silently and hope that apple will fix everything so i can function again with proper tools.”
4. She rocked the red carpet in pink chiffon.
Martha dressed up as Glinda the Good Witch for a taping of the Hub Network’s Halloween Bash in Los Angeles in October.
As part of the celebrity panel judging the network’s first-annual costume competition, she wore a chiffoned-out costume complete with wand and crown. (In case you were wondering, the pink poofiness was all Martha’s creation!)
5. She signed up for Match.com.
Even billionaires need help with their love lives. Martha created a profile on Match.com this year, hoping to find true love.
“I’d like to have breakfast with somebody,” she said on “The Today Show.” “I’d like to go to bed with somebody. Sleep with somebody.”
So, how did her online dating adventure turn out? In an interview with Marlo Thomas, Martha said she went out on two dates after getting thousands of responses.”They were very pleasant, very nice, and it’s worth trying for people who have trouble finding a date or partner,” she said.
6. She grossed out her Twitter followers.
She might be known for her delicious recipes, but Martha has been tweeting out food photos that look less than appetizing. Bloggers (and her own Twitter followers) seemed to agree that her food photography is “gross.”
Let’s just blame it on her camera! Here’s an example:

7. She made an odd cough drop commercial.
Not much needs to be said about this cringe-worthy cough drop commercial, except: “Martha, what were you thinking?!”
