Martha Stewart and Kmart: Putting on appearances

Martha Stewart has never shied away from a tough situation, but it looks like the domestic mogul feels the need to put a soft spin on some hard stuff she said about her former friends at Kmart.

A month to the day after the founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia (MSO) trashed the store chain in a live TV interview, her company issued a statement about her remarks. It wasn't quite an apology, but probably as close as Kmart is going to get.
