Martha Stewart Does Market District

14 May

Today, Martha Stewart madness took over Market District in Robinson Township, right outside of Pittsburgh. Approximately 750 people got the opportunity to see a demonstration of Martha’s new “Martha Stewart Clean” eco-friendly household products, and get either books or products autographed by Martha herself.

Ms. Stewart was, of course, polished, polite, and impeccibly dressed, and surprisingly friendly, posing for photos with fans during the book signing and being chatty. The whole event was run very efficiently and smoothly and was overall well-done and well-organized, and very tasteful.

Even though we were told that she would not pose for photos, when I got up there, she took a picture with me without my even asking her to. I was expecting someone to just take a picture of her as she was signing my book, but she was gracious and nice, and even offered me encouragement on publishing my own book someday.

I admit, I went into it as a skeptic. I wanted to see what it was all about, and I wanted to blog about it for my ‘day job’ because of the whole healthy living and wellness component, but, I’ve never been a huge Martha fan. However, it goes to show that you shouldn’t judge people because, she was very kind to me and didn’t rub me the wrong way at all. I can only speak for my personal experience but I left happy, and, after looking through the Fresh Flavor Fast book, hungry.

Kudos to Market District (and what a fabulous store that is, anyway!) for putting on such a lovely event!

Britney Spears Splits with Agent-Boyfriend Jason Trawick – Professionally, That is…

14 May

Britney Spears recently broke up with her boyfriend, Jason Trawick….not romantically, though.

She’s been dating him for about a year now, but one minor issue has always stood in the way: Trawick is also her manager, which, in some people’s opinions, could be a conflict of interests, of sorts.

To avoid any such problems, they’ve decided to part ways professionally, and Spears is dumping him as her manager so that they can focus on taking their relationship to the next level. Cue the “awwwww’s!”

In other Spears news, she’s currently shooting a new Candies ad, working on some new tracks, and, still denying that the leaked pre-Gaga “Telephone” demo was hers.

(What do you think?)

She’s appearing to be fit, healthy, and happy, (see photo, May 10, 2010) and, apparently, Fox is still in talks to do a Britney Spears GLEE episode! Here’s hoping!
