Episode Description

Some call her the Diva of Domesticity and a one-woman homemaking empire. Others say she's egotistical, humorless, and a bad cook. We chart Martha Stewart's amazing rise from lower-middle-class beginnings and learn how the notoriously tough-minded Martha transformed a home-based catering company into a billion-dollar conglomerate. Along the way, her fiery temper hurt her siblings and friends and alienated employees, who were forced to sign a gag order prohibiting their speaking to the press.
