NEW YORK (AP) Martha Stewart estimates she has lost $400 million because of the federal investigation into her ImClone stock trade, she told The New Yorker magazine.

The story, which reaches newsstands Monday, is based on Stewart's first lengthy media interview on the subject since news broke last June that federal prosecutors were investigating her sale of ImClone System shares.

To quote Clark Gable from his epic role in 'Gone with the Wind,' .... 'Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn ...'

Martha sold out her stockholders too. How much money did they lose? How many poor schmucks put their life savings into your company and lost it all ? Cry me a river, honey. Hope you go to prison. Will Bill and Hillary visit you .... ? Not a chance in Hell ...

There must be an insurance company that sells scandal insurance. I wonder if she had a policy.

Mrs. Stewart: You are the person who tried to save $250K by breaking the rules. You took a calculated risk, and you lost. Quit whining.

I never really cared for Martha Stewart although I enjoy homemaking, cooking, decorating my home, etc. What I always disliked about Martha was her "perfectionist" and "elitist" attitude towards her version of what constitutes good taste. (Of course, Martha could well afford to get things done by hiring a bunch of "peasants" to do most of the work.) She deserves everything her greedy, limousine liberal heart got her into in the first place. Like all good friends of Hillary, she tries to blame everyone else and not take responsibility for her own criminal behavior.

This would be a perfect summation to a jury.

One more class tidbit from Martha, it seems that in china the thinner your chopsticks are the more refined ahd upper class you are, and so, in accordance, Martha's chopsticks are the thinnest, and this is why people hate her. Poor sick demented delusional far left used to be millionaire. She is such an annoying irrelevant person.

$400 Million?

That's far less than trading stock legitimately would have cost.

Is there a lesson there Martha?

You should read up on Martha. She treats her employees like dirt, lies to them, stiffs them on their bills or paychecks. Treated her ex-husband and daughter like dirt.

She's a weirdo-megalomaniac. Cold as a dead fish.

she's "puzzled by the public's delight" in her troubles.

She's clueless.

She should cry me a river. I'm told by a couple of people that Martha has always been a viper and Sam Waskal has always been crooked. He plagiarized that "medicine" that failed the FDA.

Did anything ever happen to the FDA employee who let the inside info "slip out" in a meeting?

She is also reported to have a 'Hell-on-wheels' temper that she is unable to control ... and flies into wild rages. I read a report a few years back about a confrontation with a neighbor. Forget the details. But think it involved an automobile .... At the time, I just couldn't believe it, and did a double take.

To my knowledge nothing happened to that guy. I could be wrong though.
