Does America's domestic diva have a dark side? Alexis Stewart, Martha Stewart's daughter, just published a memoir about her childhood: Whateverland: Learning to Live Here. In the biography, Alexis reveals that her domestic-friendly mother wasn't the most kid-friendly:
"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," Alexis writes. "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.' "
Ouch...I wonder what her mother has to say about the rancorous words? In her own words, Martha Stewart doesn't seem to have much animosity, instead offering that her daughter can handle herself and that she's her own person.
As for Alexis, she insists that she has no hard feelings despite an allegedly difficult childhood, and dedicated the book to her mother.
