NEW YORK – Martha Stewart (search) gets to hear from the other Martha Stewarts Tuesday. And they'll tell her it isn't easy sharing the same name with you-know-who.
Martha Stewart of Effingham, S.C., is heading here to be part of an audience full of people also named Martha Stewart on the domestic diva's talk show. How did sharing the same name affect her life?
"Well, this one's a little embarrassing, but I had gotten a traffic citation while Martha was in jail," she says.
"When I went to my court date, I prayed that they wouldn't call my name out too loud or that they'd wait to call me last because there were a lot of people there.
"When the judge called my name, everyone started cheering and hollering. The judge said: 'Come on up here, Cupcake.'
"Apparently, that's what the inmates called Martha while she was in prison."
