Martha Stewart is no stranger to public scandal.
So what does the once disgraced domestic diva think about Paula Deen’s recent racism controversy and subsequent fallout?
“I feel sorry for Paula Deen,” Stewart told Bravo’s Andy Cohen while appearing on Wednesday night’s “Watch What Happens Live!” “She’s a public figure. And I know you have to be extremely careful being a public figure.”
Asked whether she “agreed” with the public and corporate reaction to Deen’s admitted past use of the N-word, Stewart responded, “I don’t want to say whether I agree or not. I just feel you have to really watch yourself especially especially in this day and age, with cameras all over you and google.”
She added knowingly, “What I just said … It’ll be there forever.”
While both Stewart and Deen have had shows on the Food Network, Stewart had “no comment” on Deen’s firing.
But if anyone can give Deen, 66, hope, it’s 71-year-old Martha Stewart.
