Let us not forget that Ms. Stewart was locked down in far less plush confines in 2004 and 2005, when she spent five months at Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia after felony convictions of conspiracy, obstruction of justice and lying to investigators about why she sold 4,000 shares of ImClone stock. (The day after the sale, ImClone’s stock plummeted, leading to accusations of insider trading.)
That makes, say, cutting your own hair, as she has done in the pandemic, not such a big deal. (She did see her colorist before filming a week’s worth of “Chopped” episodes in August.)
“I haven’t been to the dermatologist, but my skin looks really good, and I think that has to do with CBD,” she said.
After-Hours at Home
When dinnertime rolls around, “you either want to kill yourself because nobody’s there,” she said, “or, you know, you have somebody.” If she has company, she may indulge in a Martha-rita — a fresh fruit margarita whose name she coined in May.
“I have a rule that I do not drink alone,” Ms. Stewart said. “I don’t think I’ve ever poured a drink for myself alone in my house. I’m not like my friends who could have a glass of wine and feel nice about it, by themselves.” Her diet consists of “very little meat, lots of fish and lots of vegetables.” “I’ve lost a lot of weight during this time,” she said.
Generally, she wears gym tights and her own QVC clothing around the house. (“I’m amazed by the longevity,” she said.) Recently, for a rare, socially distanced, dinner out at a restaurant, she wore a long Eres gown.
