Martha Stewart has shown us how to entertain in grand style, how to toss a dandy wedding reception and how to cook quick. Now she's telling us what we should listen to while we eat. Stewart, 47, is a former stockbroker and model who parlayed a catering career into seven popular "lifestyle" food books, four cooking videos and a lucrative home furnishings contract with K mart. She lives on a picture- perfect farm in Connecticut, furnished in the kind of impeccable taste that turns visitors mint-green with envy.

Yesterday, Martha Stewart chose NBC's Today show for her first TV appearance since her release from prison and subsequent house arrest. But the domestic diva's initial late-night talk-show chat will not be with NBC Tonight Show star Jay Leno; it will be with his contentious CBS rival, David Letterman. Stewart is due to trade quips with Dave on Sept. 19 - two days before the debut of The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, and a week after her daily syndicated lifestyle show, Martha, debuts.

Every fall, the broadcast networks throw a big handful of new shows against the wall, hoping most will stick, but knowing that many an overcooked noodle will slide to the floor. It's the third week of the new season, and the linguine's already dropping. Losers are being discarded, moved, or shelved. Winners - My Name Is Earl on NBC and Everybody Hates Chris on UPN - have been given full-season commitments. And network hopes are high for Fox's death-row drama Prison Break, ABC's alien series Invasion, and the WB's ghostly Supernatural.

Yesterday, Martha Stewart canceled her morning network television appearance, postponed her October visit to Philadelphia to accept an award from the Moore College of Art and Design, and saw her autobiography put on hold. With prosecutors nipping at her garden boots, Stewart was supposed to show off her icebox desserts on CBS's The Early Show, but was a no-show instead. "CBS is a premier news network and, as such, they are compelled to interview Martha Stewart regarding the ImClone matter," said her spokeswoman, Susan Magrino.

Martha Stewart's next book may be called: "How to Hold A Fabulous Party in your Cell Block. "Martha Stewart's next book may be called: "How to Hold A Fabulous Party in your Cell Block. " According to the New York Daily News' Rush and Molloy, Stewart hosted a small New Year's Eve soiree in her cell. She even danced. "I tell you, Martha was getting into it," eyewitness Jose Figueroa tells People. "Martha's got a little funk in her; she was jamming and clapping. " Martha has reportedly also befriended fellow inmates and has adopted the prison cat as a pet. And (as if the above wasn't nauseating enough)

Martha Stewart, clearly superior A Martha Stewart-Rachael Ray mud wrestle? Yes, please! Martha started it, oh, she did. Last night on ABC's Nightline, she smacked Rachael's skillet skills. She told host Cynthia McFadden that the pert, feisty, spunky, perky Rachael shtick's "not good enough for me. . . . She's more of an entertainer . . . with her bubbly personality, than she is a teacher, like me. " Downtrodden Rachael kept her composure while (we're sure) grinding her molars to powder.

Her name is Barbara, and she really does have a recipe for Chitterlings in Puff Pastry in her new cookbook, "B. Smith's Entertaining and Cooking for Friends" (Artisan/$30). "Chitterlings don't often turn up these days," Smith - a former model who owns the B. Smith restaurants in New York and Washington, D.C. - writes in a preface to the recipe on Page 101. "To prevent their falling by the wayside, I created this unusual hors d'oeuvre for special occasions with friends who are familiar with and appreciate this delicacy.

Martha knew better Robert W. Tracinski misses the point regarding Martha Stewart (Jan. 13, "Martha-hatred is simply envy"). After more than 40 years of managing money, I reflect on the first thing I learned: You do not trade on inside information. I may not have agreed with the law, but I was bound to abide by it. Martha was a broker before she was the maven of living. History is replete with words of those who thought they were above the law: You won't have me to kick around anymore.

For the chance to gawk at Martha in her Westport, Conn., garden - a place where the weeds are cute and the dirt so clean she fluffs it through her fingers and none of it sticks - $24.98 seems a small price to pay. Martha insists she gets pretty gross after a day of digging, but you'd never know it from the manicure. Or the poufy blond bangs and the jumbo diamond studs. Even her jeans are pressed. This is Martha Stewart, after all. And her new two-disc DVD set, Martha's Spring Gardening (Warner Home Video)

Shabby chic. I just don't get it. Why would you take a brand-new piece of furniture or pottery and turn it into something you would ordinarily walk past at a garage sale? This latest rage in home decor must be part of the generation gap. I was born just as World War II was winding down and the American postwar economy was heating up. Returning servicemen and women were staking out their chunk of the American dream. Upward mobility was in. Many young newlyweds had a house full of shabby hand-me-down furniture that they would have labeled anything but chic.
