While attending Miami’s Art Basel show, Martha Stewart revealed that her Thanksgiving wasn’t exactly up to her usual high standards, as she suffered a nasty case of salmonella, the New York Post reports.
Stewart told the paper: “I never get sick, but I came down with salmonella. I think I caught it because I was handling so many turkeys around Thanksgiving. I was on the ‘Today’ show; I did a number of other [Thanksgiving] appearances. It really hit me hard and I was in bed for days. It was terrible.”
Stewart looked at the positive side of the situation and pointed out that she had lost weight because of her illness.
