Donald Trump versus Martha Stewart

The Donald doesn't take failure well, and when, in 2006, "The Apprentice" showed signs of ratings weakness, he went after <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB000004386" title="Martha Stewart" href="/topic/entertainment/television/martha-stewart-PECLB000004386.topic">Martha Stewart</a>.  Her show, "The Apprentice: Martha Stewart," was not highly rated, and Trump believed the spinoff dragged down his own show. He blamed her; she was upset and blamed him; then he wrote a scathing letter telling Stewart to take full responsibility for the failed show, talking about her ImClone fiasco, her daughter's "one-word statements" and more. Later, in 2008, though the event seemed to have simmered down, Stewart said Trump's actions were "unforgivable."
