Playing Martha Stewart Won’t Watch ‘Orange Is the New Black’: ‘It’s Not as Good as the Real Thing’

Martha Stewart is not impressed with the ladies from Litchfield. The famed businesswoman and celebrated homemaker served jail time in 2004 and revealed on the latest episode of Netflix’s Chelsea that she has no interest in watching the network’s popular prison series Orange Is the New Black.

When host Chelsea Handler asked if it “hit too close to home,” Stewart replied, “It’s not as good as the real thing.”

Stewart spent five months in jail, and said the Netflix series simply did not compare to her time behind bars.

“When you live through something like Orange Is the New Black, the real characters are better,” she said.

As for her prison TV time, she certainly didn’t get to binge-watch.

“In prison it was BET television at all times. I had to get up really early to watch the news,” she said. “So if I wanted to watch the stock market and stuff like that, I had to get up really early and watch it by myself.”

The 74-year-old lifestyle guru got very candid about her TV choices while chatting with Handler. She revealed that she binge-watches House of Cards and that she’s also a fan of The Blacklist.

“I just think [James Spader]’s so great. I hate the girl,” she said of Blacklist lead Megan Boone. “The girl I hear was just killed. Thank God. She’s terrible.”

Sorry, Martha, but Elizabeth Keen just returned to the show after fans thought she’d been killed off.

Orange Is the New Black Season 4 premieres on Friday, June 17 on Netflix.
