Observers are wondering what sort of menu and how much humble pie Martha Stewart brings with her when she returns from prison.
Some suggest the domestic diva has done her time and the public will welcome her -- and her business -- back, the Christian Science Monitor said Thursday.
But, others say an American public, still reeling from a string of corporate scandals and CEO malfeasance, deserves better role models than convicted felons -- no matter how good the cherry pie.
Wall Street and Hollywood are eagerly awaiting the new Martha.
She can't discuss her plans until after she leaves prison, where she has been serving time for conspiracy and obstruction of justice for a stock sale. But, it appears not only will she return to a TV show similar to her earlier ventures, she will also headline the first spinoff of the popular "Apprentice" franchise.
Stewart was scheduled to be released Sunday, but sources hinted she could be freed earlier.
