Martha’s stylist says her Apprentice gets “comfortable” starting tonight

NBC executives can relax: Martha Stewart’s hair stylist and make-up artist suggests that The Apprentice: Martha Stewart gets good starting tonight.

The author of Being Martha, Lloyd Allen, talked to Eva Scrivo. He writes, “At the time of our get together Eva informed me that it took Martha 4 episodes to get comfortable and into the swing of things. This was 2 months before the show began airing. So if her prediction is right we should see a turnaround in her performance.”

An NBC press release, which contains some spoilers, seems to confirm this. Martha goes all Phantom of the Opera on the contestants and tells them, “You don’t want to see me lose my patience.” She adds, “Don’t make me cut you, bitches.”
