DIY maven Martha Stewart joked on Thursday that she had quietly wondered whether certain friends might die to clear the way for her to make a move on their husbands.

Stewart made the comments during an appearance on “Dear Chelsea,” comedian Chelsea Handler’s podcast, and explained that she didn’t have it in her to be “a home-wrecker” and the alternative was simply waiting for nature to take its course.

Handler shared a clip from her podcast along with the caption, “We’re going to need some men to spice up @MarthaStewart’s love life. Check out a new episode of Dear Chelsea streaming now.”


Handler kicked off the conversation by asking Stewart whether she had any romantic prospects on the horizon.

“Speaking of men, what’s going on in your love life these days?”

“Nothing,” Stewart’s reply was adamant, and she shook her head for emphasis. “Absolutely zero … I had two mad crushes in the last month, which is really good for me. But it turns out, you know, one of them is married to the mother of some friends of mine and I just — he’s so attractive.”

“You know, you can’t be a home wrecker,” Handler interjected.

“No, I’m not. I’ve never been a home wrecker. I’ve tried really hard not to be. I’ve had the opportunity to be a home-wrecker and I have not taken anybody up on it,” Stewart continued. “And that’s really where — that’s where I meet men. They’re all married to friends of mine or something like that.”

“Well, it’s very difficult because I think there are certain ages we go through where it’s very tempting because you wanna believe that, ‘Oh, maybe this relationship that they’re in is temporary,'” Handler prompted.

“Or maybe they’ll die,” Stewart suggested. “I always think, oh gosh, couldn’t that person just die.”

“The wife?” Handler queried.

“Yeah! Not — not painfully. Just die … But it, it hasn’t worked out,” Stewart added.

Stewart, who is 80, also weighed in on the aging process during the podcast, telling Handler how she really feels about it. “I don’t think about age or aging. I do not think about it,” she said. “My favorite thing about getting older is absolutely not one thing.”

Handler recently declared — following a brief stint guest-hosting for comedian Jimmy Kimmel — that she would like to return to late-night television.
