Martha Stewart’s Daughter, Alexis, Gives Awkward Answers on ‘Today’

This morning on the “Today” show, Alexis Stewart, daughter of Martha Stewart, was interviewed about her new book Whateverland, along with the co-author, Jennifer Koppelman Hutt. The two segments were brutal to watch.

You’d think that someone being on the “Today” show would be happy about being given the opportunity to promote their work, but nope! When she wasn’t giving curt answers, Alexis was shooting daggers at Savannah Guthrie for wanting to talk about her famous mother, as if anyone would actually care about the book otherwise.

Not only that, apparently Stewart and Koppelman Hutt are no longer friends, which lead to multiple awkward moments. At one point Stewart declared, “If you want to punish somebody, never talking to them again is a really good method.” Uh, thanks for the tip?

Memo to Alexis: Lighten up. You’re a super rich white woman. Things could be a lot worse.
