Business Dealings in the Pokey - It's all locked up...the deal, that is: Martha Stewart has agreed to host a new homemaking show upon her release from Camp Cupcake. But the new series will take a different tact from her old one. Now, reality TV impressario Mark Burnett, of Survivor and The Apprentice is joining forces with Stewart to kickstart the new program. After watching outtakes from Martha Stewart Living Burnett revealed that he thinks Martha should let loose to be more "reflective of her personality" and interact with a studio audience and with the celebrities "clamoring" to be on the show. And with the addition of Susan Lyne (who helped develop Desperate Housewives at ABC) to the MSLO family, we may be in for a a delightfully edgy new Martha altogether.
