It can’t be easy being the daughter of Martha Stewart. But in her new book, Whateverland: Learning to Live Here, 46-year-old Alexis Stewart says it was far worse them we imagined. “I grew up with a glue gun pointed at my head,” she said. “If I didn’t do something perfectly, I had to do it again … Martha was not interested in being kid friendly.
