Martha jokes that she wanted to dismiss apprentices with “Your ass is grass!’

If an interview Martha Stewart conducted with Newsweek is any indication, her season of The Apprentice is going to be cra-zy. For starters, Martha said that, for her still super-secret firing catchphrase, she wanted to say, “Your ass is grass!”

Prison didn’t totally take away the Martha we know and love, though, as she followed that by ensuring us that it was “a joke.” Oh, Martha.

The Martha we’ll see on the show is “Merry Martha,” who is perhaps happy because the prison rapes have ceased. She says we’ll be surprised by who we see on TV. “Maybe it’s time to think of me a little differently. In the last two years, people have tried to make me a dour, miserable human being, and I’m not.”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
