Martha Hogs It All

Martha Stewart in a hog barn? How untidy. Still, the Associated Press reports, that was Martha herself in the hog barn at the Iowa State Fair. The hogs didn’t seem to mind, but 13-year-old Andrea Kemp, who was showing a Yorkshire hog in a 4-H competition Thursday, found it hard to concentrate. “She came over and WATCHED,” said Kemp, who admitted to being a Martha fan. “I had to concentrate and keep my eye on the judge, but if I had the chance, I would look at Martha.” Andrea’s hog finished sixth.

  • Martha was filming a segment for her show on the history of the Iowa State Fair. The piece will include footage of the bubble gum-blowing contest, the yodeling contest, the butter cow and the pie-baking contest.
