Rosie O’Donnell Speaks About Visiting Martha Stewart in Prision

Rosie O’Donnell opened up about visiting Martha Stewart while she was in prison.

In a new interview with Page Six, Rosie revealed that she traveled to Virginia in 2004 to see Martha. While there, she asked her what she missed the most while being locked up.

Martha reportedly replied, “The flavor of lemon.”

“I would have known that I would have shoved one up my hooter, I could have got one in for you!” Rosie quipped.

The comedian added that she arranged for a Capri lemon tree from Italy to be waiting on Martha’s front porch at her Connecticut estate on the day she returned home.

“I didn’t really know her very much aside from the celebrity vernacular,” Rosie confessed. “She had done my show but I didn’t really know her, we hadn’t been out for dinner, we weren’t exactly friends. Before she left, I wrote her a letter that I thought it was so unfair and if she ever needed anything don’t hesitate and I left my phone number.”

She continued, “After she was in prison I got a call from her assistant who said she’d like you to come to visit and it kind of broke my heart to think that of all the people she knew she had to invite someone she sort of didn’t know to come all the way to Lynchburg, Virginia. I had to get a plane and go there.”

We love this story! What a sweet gesture.
