Party planning, magazine editing and TV appearances blur into eachother for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, the homemaking maven's media conglomerate. Writing in 2002, media reporter Greg Lindsay was impressed by Stewart's multiplicity of talents: "Soccer moms and magazine execs alike revere homemaking doyenne Martha Stewart for her WASPy Zen approach to decorating, entertaining and blazing the celebrity editor trail." Greg, and his new wife have learned well from the mistress of synergy. Their wedding in Bermuda last year was nearly rained off, but they turned near-disaster into a joyful celebration, and a television appearance on Martha. Here, after the jump, is the clip of plain Greg and Sophie being interviewed by the homemaking queen: Greg explains how he found a "fabulous" naval dockyard in Bermuda to host the wedding after a storm forecast disrupted plans for an open-air ceremony, sounding like any other touch-fey husband. Incidentally, Sophie is Sophie Donelson, who was a senior editor at Blueprint, a Martha Stewart title, before it folded two months ago. The moral of this story? There are no real people in Manhattan: only media people playing real people for other media people who play real people.
