Martha Stewart's Thanksgiving guests ALL cancel on her!

Thanksgiving is canceled, according to the queen of domestic arts, Martha Stewart.

The 82-year-old food and decor maven told Kelly Clarkson during a Thursday appearance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show" that turkey day is officially out.

"Oh, I gave up Thanksgiving. I canceled," the TV personality and businesswoman said.

Stewart told the talk show host that nine of her guests canceled Thanksgiving dinner on her because someone got sick. So, she called up her chef friend and canceled the entire holiday dinner.

"And I also cooked like 14 turkeys already for my TV show," she told Clarkson. "And I still have to do one more turkey I think on the 'Today' show.

"I am turkeyed out," Stewart said. Instead, Clarkson suggested "taco Thursday."

But Stewart will be doing what a lot of Thanksgiving observers do: making the rounds at friends' dinners.

"I made a plan. Friends, of course, invited me to their home," she said. "So, I'm going to about five different homes to taste different courses."

"Those friends must be so stressed out," Clarkson said. "Oh, I hope so," Stewart said with a laugh.

"If you were coming to my house, I would for sure lie and say I cooked and have somebody else do it," Clarkson said.

Though 14 turkeys is no small feat, Stewart is known for going all out on Thanksgiving. One year, she underwent a marathon baking project of thirty assorted pies baked in 20 hours.

I would have gladly gone. But, I would choose Ina over her.

I was invited but Gary told me not to go.

Same here, R1.

What a strange story that ALL of Martha's nine guests would cancel on her.

I wonder what's up with that?

Too much pot smoke.

Who the fuck does she think she is, the Queen of Sheba? Dropping in on friends' dinners to taste just one course and then onward. Who would put up with such a prima donna?

Poor Martha. No TG dinner will ever match the one she had in prison.

What about Martha's daughter Alexis and her grandchild?

Why aren't they spending Thanksgiving with Martha?

R8. For reasons known only to them. Now what about that Christmas card list.

If her Thanksgiiving guests are as old as her, then catching the flu or covid could be deadly. An no one wants the shits.

r3 Maybe they read that interview where she revealed she's a mega-cunt who expects staff to be on call 24/7, and whining about WFH and so on

Her poor visiting relatives...now they'll have no dinner guests to serve, and Martha will force them to spend the Thanksgiving weekend in their camp set up in her vineyard.

Before Ellen had to make her first sitcom a political statement, she did a very funny episode where Martha Stewart, who I think was at a book signing at her bookstore, came to her house for dinner.

I thought that more than nine were invited, but when nine of the invitees canceled, she canceled the whole thing. That’s how I read it.

They end up ordering pizza, r15.

Martha has a tv show? Where?

I was not aware of it.

She’s 82? I had no idea she was that old

R18 It's called "Martha Cooks" on Roku Channel. It's up to Season 3. I believe it's like streaming shows that drop all episodes for a season at once. The ten episodes for Season 3 were just put up November 13. 2023. She mentions shows on Roku within her IG posts at times.

Thanks, R20.

No wonder I haven't seen it.

I don't have Roku.

But you can download the Roku app and watch it on any device.

Watch it for free, R24?

If so, then thanks!

Someone needs to tell Martha that stacking books on tables is so 1993.

She needs to stop hanging around with that colored man that smokes all those drugs! He has had a bad influence on her! Next thing you know she'll be dancing to that colored sex music with all the drums!

I adore this old battle axe.

“Martha Stewart Living”, her 90s show, was pure escapism.

R18 R25 You can also watch her show on desktop without the app, and it's free if you watch the ads. Funny thing, I have adblocker and ublock and it plays right through with no ads.

Martha Stewart should make festive gourmet edibles to share with friends this holiday season. Think of that collab with Snoop.

She’s sad to me. Yeah, successful and rich but she seems so empty with a false veneer. Totally insecure, materialistic and a cutthroat capitalist. She’ll have many regrets on her deathbed.

by Anonymousreply 38November 18, 2023 8:59 PM

If I knew she was stopping by my house, I’d purposely not put any effort into the meal. I’d let the bird go dry by not covering it in the roasting pan. I’d serve instant mashed from Aldi. I’d buy Happy Harvest canned corn and generic canned cranberry sauce (the gelled kind) from Aldi. No butter or dinner rolls. Served with 4 oz of room temp unfiltered tap water. If she showed event a hint of judgement or being displeased with the food, I’d stand up end escort her, by the arm, to my front door and say “Not today Satan” to her and slam the door shut!

That "Not today, Satan!" was an odd touch.

I do think she's very materialistic, but at heart she's basically a teacher. She is fixated on doing certain things well (cooking, baking, gardening, home projects) and having studied and figured out certain things, she figures out how to break it down and show people on her TV shows how they can do it too. However, it doesn't take long to figure out that she has an enormous staff to help, which the vast majority of us do not. She'll show the rest of us how to paint trim around a window, while 25 Mexican workmen are just out of camera view waiting to paint the rest of her mansion. I think she has a certain charm and I wouldn't mind spending an afternoon with her touring her garden or eating at one of her meals (not that that is ever going to happen).

Sadly, whatever there is to be thankful for this year is far outweighed by what we have to be unthankful for. We are on the cusp of of the real threat of losing our democracy to a madman and his henchmen. A literal 21st century Hitler and a group of American Nazi SS men.

I hope and pray that if the democrats are successful in destroying Trump & MAGA there will be a Thanksgiving celebration next year to beat all others.

This is really no joke. We had a similar experience in 2021 when four people in a household all caught COVID and cancelled. Thank goodness they did because two of the remaining four guests were recent cancer survivors. I hope Martha sent them turkeys. I too would be with Ina. She seems like fun, whereas with Martha I'd be nervous.

Martha is botoxed and filler'd to within an inch of her life. And that wig! Why can't she look her age? Those leather pants look ridiculous. I look at Jane Fonda who is in her 80's or Joan Baez, andb they look good, they ook healthy, but they look their age. And Jane has had work done. She is also a cancer survivor.
