Martha Stewart Steals Cheese Slices From Her Housekeeper’s Drawer

Here’s a lesson from the late-night snack master

Martha Stewart lives a fabulous life, even when no one’s watching. In a new interview with Town and Country, the media mogul extraordinaire talks about her Caipirinha-mixing skills, and her love of using the Big Green Egg — she wants a blue version, but Stewart explains that “they haven’t agreed to do that yet.” Lady M also reveals her midnight snack regimen:

My guilty pleasure is not at all interesting: It's a spoon of really good organic peanut butter, or a slice of American cheese from my housekeeper’s drawer. I steal American slices sometimes — in the plastic, it’s so horrible. But it’s such a good snack. I eat pickled herring as a late-night snack before I go to bed because it’s savory and good. I like liverwurst, and I know how bad it is now. I love squeezing it out of the tube and just eating calves' liverwurst.

When she’s not running her empire or eating liverwurst from a tube, Martha sometimes goes on dates, but it’s rough out there, even if you’re a bona fide celebrity. Stewart remarks:

I went to the lounge area at Le Bernardin with this guy. He had to go somewhere afterward, and I had to go somewhere after. It wasn’t a first date, but it was like a second or third date. We each had places to go; he did not ask me to go with him to the second place. We had cocktails and a little caviar or something. Then he just got up and said he had to run, and he ran out and didn’t pay! And I thought that was extremely rude.

When asked about how her love life is going in general, Stewart remarks: “I don’t have that much time for casual dating...”
