Martha Stewart’s Daughter Paints a Grim Picture About Childhood
Johnnie WaltersOctober 3, 2011
Alexis Stewart had some harsh things to say about her mother.
In her new book Whateverland: Learning to Live Here, Alexis paints a ugly picture during her childhood with her mother Martha Stewart.
“Martha does everything better! You can’t win,” Alexis Stewart writes of her 70-year-old mom, according to an excerpt obtained by U.K.’s Daily Mail. “If I didn’t do something perfectly, I had to do it again. … I grew up with a glue gun pointed at my head.”
Alexis claims Martha was not a maternal figure and did not like to celebrate the holidays.
“Martha was not interested in being kid friendly,’ she said. “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
On Halloween, “‘There were no costumes. There was no anything. We turned off all the lights and pretended we weren’t home.”
Alexis also claims her mother left the door open when she urinated.
“Mother always peed with the door open,’ Alexis said.”I remember saying, “You know, now I have friends over! You can’t do that anymore! It’s gotta stop! My friends’ parents don’t do it! Give me a break here! I don’t feel like being embarrassed! It’s exhausting! I’m a kid! Stop!”‘
But despite Alexis’ revelations, the two get along well. Alexis even dedicated the book to her mother, who also offered her own brand of support.
“She’s her own person,” Martha writes in the book of her daughter. “She makes up her own mind. I sometimes try to offer advice, but if it’s not taken, so be it. She really did pay attention. She really does know how to do everything. And still she chooses not to follow in my footsteps.”
