Choking back tears and pleading for leniency, Martha Stewart was sentenced to five months in prison Friday for lying about a stock sale. But the woman who saw her gracious homemaking empire crippled over a single transaction smiled boldly into the cameras outside to denounce her treatment, pitch her company and vow: "I'll be back."

A pity Martha's going to the big house, but can you imagine how pretty she'll have her cell block looking after she works on it? And just think about the designer jumpsuits! They'll probably be in K-Mart before she's out!

A whole 5 months, and another 5 months house arrest! Not to mention a $30K fine...Not really much of a sentence!

Well, what did you expect? Ten years of hard labor at San Quentin? Remember, Martha's famous, AND she has money, that means hiring the best lawyers to make sure she basically got off with a slap on the wrist.
