This was also featured on the reality competition series The Apprentice: Martha Stewart in 2005, where the star became one of the finalists. Although the company went out of business in 2006, her stint on the show was her breakthrough in reality television.

In 200, she was cast on Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City (RHONY). Her presence was on and off on the show, but she established herself to be one of the strongest ladies in the franchise. She left the show in 2019, stating a desire to focus on her personal life.
