2005_03_marthafates.jpgClearly, someone at Newsweek must miss The Gates, because the cover of Martha Stewart busting out of what looks like are saffron colored curtains! The AP is all over the cover illustration, because Martha "appears to be sporting a model's body." A Newsweek editor says, "Anybody who knows the story and is familiar with Martha's current situation would know this particular picture [was an illustration and not a photograph]." Well, it sure is a flattering illustration. It's not like Newsweek-sometimes-partner (what is the relationship between Newsweek and NBC again? we forget) NBC will be airing the Martha Stewart version of The Apprentice.

Newsweek's cover story, Martha Breaks Out, has a terrible picture of Martha online. And Gothamist on her new show.
