Famed home decorator and media tycoon Martha Stewart is using online date sites to find a match.
The businesswoman — owner of Martha Stewart Living (NYSE:MSO) and other businesses — said in an interview that she’s using Match.com to find a relationship, New York Daily News reports.
Stewart, in a Monday interview on The Today Show, admitted that she had been considering using the service. Prompted by the show’s hosts, Stewart finally agreed to set up an account. Match.com CEO Sam Yagan told Stewart, “What we know we can get you is some great first dates. I think finding a soul mate for you might be a little bit difficult, but I think first dates are easily doable.”
When asked about whether she’s looking for a new marriage, the 71-year-old Stewart said, “It depends. I’d like to have breakfast with somebody. I’d like to go to bed with somebody. Sleep with somebody.”
Stewart was encouraged to use an alias on her profile to discourage celebrity seekers. However, online gossip site Jezebel.com has found what it believes is Stewart’s new profile. The profile’s intro reads, “ive been curious about online dating for a long time but like many the reluctance to try has outweighed the curiosity. after recently writing living the good long life i was reminded how central a good relationship would be.”
