Don’t tell Martha Stewart not to take pictures with Hillary Clinton

When will people learn that Martha Stewart tells you which rules apply to her and not the other way around? While attending a $33K a plate fundraiser for Hillary Clinton at Harvey Weinstein’s home, Martha took pictures with Hillary. The problem was that there was a ban in place on all photos and posts to social media. So what happened when it was mandated no cell phone selfies with Ms. Clinton allowed? Martha whipped out a Canon and used her middle finger to press the shutter.

Despite a strict rule against social-media posts or photos at a star-studded Hillary Clinton fundraiser at the home of Harvey Weinstein on Monday night, spies said one guest dared to break the rules — Martha Stewart.

The intimate, starry event was hosted by Weinstein along with Leo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

But though “everyone [else] obeyed the no-social-media rules,” an insider said, “Martha was the only one who didn’t. It was like, ‘No rules for Martha!’ She was up in Hillary’s face — not only with an iPhone, but with like a Canon camera.”

The sources said, “To a person, everyone noticed” at the dinner for 50, where seats went for $33,000 each.

Guests also included fashion designers Vera Wang and Tory Burch, jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, “Real Housewife” Bethenny Frankel and actress Candice Bergen.

Meanwhile, we hear that model-loving star DiCaprio was seated next to Hillary herself.

“He was very gallant,” said an insider, “he even pulled out Hillary’s chair for her” to sit down.

When speaking of grammar rules in writing, my former-English teacher mother is fond of saying, “you have to know the rules before you can break them.” Perhaps Martha thinks she has written enough books on party etiquette rules to smash the hell out of any rule that doesn’t suit her.

As of this writing, Martha has at least adhered to the no social media rule on both Instagram and Twitter. I am convinced that is solely to keep the party organizers guessing about her next move. Martha’s accounts only have beautiful roses, delicious food and, for some reason, a hillside of shade thrown at Jonathan Cheban, probably just because she was bored. My guess is she made copies of all her Hillary photos, fashioned them into a beautiful bouquet with hand cut paper flower frames, assembled in a custom stenciled mason jar and sent them to Harvey Weinstein along with a pattern for a sensible dress for his wife.

I’ll pledge to start watching Orange is the New Black again if the writers work these photos into Judy King’s, their Martha Stewart inspired character, storyline. Maybe she could sell them for clove cigarettes.

    $33K and I can’t take a photo with you?! I’m with Martha.

    • Jessie says:

      Seriously. For $33K, I’m taking pictures of whatever I want.

    • Rachel says:

      I agree. That kind of money should include a photo op. Especially if there were only 50 people in attendance. I could understand at a fundraising party with hundreds of people. You couldn’t possibly get a photo with all of them. But for 50 people? Smile pretty.

    I LOVE the Cheban shade.
    Especially since it seems so out of left field.

    Oh and just read her next tweet. Oh man, Mariah levels of shade.
    ‘He’s the very famous bff of the kardashians, who knew?”
    Excellent Martha, excellent.

    I think I may join twitter to follow her her exploits.

    • MC2 says:

      I never want to join twitter until I see stuff like this. And Bette Midler- she is pure gold.
      When I saw Martha’s tweet with “who knew?”, first I laughed and then I hung my head in shame and said “I did, Martha, I did……”
      Do you think he was next to her at a salon & decided to say hi because he is “very famous”? It just seemed so random and that pic looks like she took it.

    I love that Martha wears those platform sandals because of a combination of Granny Logic and Martha Class, and the Fanning sisters wear them because someone told them they are cutting edge fashion.

    Don’t test Original Gangsta Martha.

    Interesting that so-called jet-setting environmentalist Leo DiCaprio would donate to Hillary.

    • Fee says:

      TG: Exactly what I thought too. I’m disgusted to see some fave actors endorse her w/out caring about our future.its not their kids that will go to war,its everyone else’s. ” As soon as I’m elected were going after Iran” Wth is wrong with her? This woman voted yes for every single war, did extreme damage as sec.of state n is investigated for criminal objects by FBI.

    Especially funny to me bc years ago Martha said no pics at a charity event for breast cancer that my mother was a part of. And my mom went gangsta and got a quick pic with Martha anyway. And it’s an amazing shot bc Martha was completely unprepared for my moms smooth moves and so it looks like a totally staged pic and like they are old friends – Martha smiling right next to my mom ☺️-
    And here goes Martha “breaking her own rules” I LOVE IT

    Another security breach for Hillary! Doesn’t Martha know Hillary is the only queen who can break the rules and get away with it?

  9. ItDoesntReallyMatter says:

    Two crooks in one photo. ;-) Except Martha went to jail for her crimes. Hillary has a eternal “Get out of Jail” monopoly card.

  10. Georgia says:

    Go Martha! I bet security was scared to try to stop her lol
