Martha Stewart Inspires Former Employee To Write Movie
Troubled lifestyle guru MARTHA STEWART has inspired a new movie about an "evil" and corrupt stockbroker - written by one of her former employees.
CLEANING LADY, penned by AJ BOLES, tells the story of MARGO SMITH, a TV show host who lands in the midst of a tax evasion criminal trial.
Boles - who until April (04) spent seven years working on Stewart's TV show MARTHA STEWART LIVING, most recently as a producer - tells America's STAR magazine, "There is nothing redeeming about this character - she is pure evil.
"Margo is inspired by Martha, but it's not a tell-all. I'm not disclosing any secrets."
Boles, who is currently shopping the script to a movie studio, sees GLENN CLOSE, SUSAN SARANDON and JODIE FOSTER as possible contenders for the role.
Stewart's insider-trading scandal culminated in July (04) with a five-month prison sentence.05/09/2004 21:00
