i don't know why but martha stewart's accent seems very proper and almost "im-trying-to-imitate-britain" kind of way. i was wondering if that was how the people in her area talked like or if that was her own way of speaking.
She's from northern New Jersey, but I don't think that's how they talk there. I think she's trying to imitate some high-society Connecticut accent myself. That's where she lives now. She does sound American and not British to me, though.
She definitely sounds American. I'm from New Jersey, but I wouldn't say Martha's accent is a "Jersey accent." It's difficult to analyze my own accent. I'd say Martha has conditioned herself to talk in an upper-class neutral American accent.
Why are you all having a go at Martha Stewart?! God, is she really that bad?
We were just discussing her accent.
Get over it! I think Martha is a nice person. Maybe I am wrong, but I think everyone needs to focus on what Enron did to the American economy, rather than what Martha Stewart does (or did).
Both Martha and Enron execs are equally bad. They are greedy corrupt Americans who want to screw the common person in order to make themselves rich. They make this country look bad, but I do think they are the minority and not the majority (well, just by a little bit).
Of course they're the minority. The vast majority of us are middle-class everyday joes.
Mjd, I have heard that the middle class of America is shrinking very fast. The rich are getting richer and the poor poorer.
I have heard that the poverty line is actually becoming higher. That would mean that both the rich and the poor are getting richer.
well you have to admit, your economy is really good
