I heard that in an interview with Matt Lauer on the “TODAY” show, Martha Stewart, 71, said that she’s had trouble meeting a male friend with benefits and admitted she attempted to (unsuccessfully) join Match.com.
Apparently she loves dating, but the questionnaire seemed impossible and so she’s just going to keep looking on her own.
Well, I’ve never attempted online dating, but I think I could really help her out with this thing. After all, if weirdo Guy Fieri can find his Gal Fieri, there has to be hope left for Martha.
Username: Martha Stewart
Headline: Lifestyle guru, businesswoman, author, magazine founder and publisher, TV personality and domestic diva seeking companionship and snuggles with someone who appreciates the finer things in life.
Age: A spritely 71
Sign: Leo, which is perfect because I love my Himalayan cats!
Ethnicity: Whitest woman on the planet
Nickname: In prison it was “M. Diddy,” but I would prefer to just go by Martha. Bygones!
Income: Well this is curious! My income range is not represented. No matter. I get by.
Religion: Cleanliness is next to godliness. Also, Dog is my co-pilot. Ha!
Relationships: One ex-husband and several ex-beaus, most notably a software billionaire and Anthony Hopkins, who I had to break it off with after viewing that wretched film, “Silence of the Lambs.” I was unable to avoid associating Hopkins with Hannibal Lecter, a man with absolutely no table manners or sense of proper etiquette.
Children: I’ve had many lovely dogs, cats and horses over the years, but I won’t bore you with those details yet! However, if you’re interested, my two blogging pups, Francesca and Sharkey, have created a photo gallery of all my pets.
Oh, and I have one daughter, Alexis.
Body Type: It depends on what I’m eating, but I prefer an Asti for a light-bodied wine and a Barbaresco for a full-bodied wine.
Celebrity Look-Alike: I’ve been told I could be a mix of that lovely woman who played Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) and Diane Sawyer.
Smoke: Do you mean salmon? If so, yes. It can make a delightful appetizer when done correctly.
Drink: I love a whiskey sour with fresh juice or a mojito, but it has to be a purple basil mojito and the basil has to be cultivated from my own garden and tended to with painted garden tools.
Hobbies: Anything involving a hot glue gun—decoupage, scrapbooking, creating snow globes out of glass from upcycled chandeliers; knitting blankets from the hair of my prize-winning Chow Chows, baking “green” brownies with my pal Snoop Dogg/Lion out of cupcake tins I’ve created from paperclips and aluminum foil; building a billion-dollar empire and tweeting. I love the Twitter!
Who I’m Looking For: Someone who I can laugh with that knows they can use half a potato to unscrew a broken light bulb. He should love animals, personal transformation and organized bed linens. There’s something incredibly satisfying about opening up the linen closet to see not unholy chaos, but color-coded bundles neatly tied in a bow.
Note: Stockbrokers and actors who have portrayed cannibals need not apply.
I think it’s pretty solid and can only imagine that the men would be lining up. And if all else fails, I’m pretty sure she could try Craig’s List or get cast on “The Bachelorette.”
Martha might just meet her match.
