Cindy Adams Defends Martha Stewart Against Ex-Friend's Tell-All

Cindy Adams used part of her column Wednesday to defend Martha Stewart against the claims in her former friend's tell-all.

In "The Best of Friends: Martha and Me," Martha's ex-pal Mariana Pasternak dishes about Stewart's problems with men and desperate search for love.

Adams, the longtime New York Post gossip columnist, wasn't having it.

"One calling herself Martha Stewart's longtime forever best friend of 20 years -- and then that friendship went poop over the insider trading mess -- has now gotten even. Written a kick-and-tell. Telling insider nasties that shouldn't be told," Adams wrote Wednesday. "I have no horse in this race. I'm not a buddy of Martha Stewart. We're not at each other's houses for Thanksgiving or Passover. But I believe in loyalty. For any friend to take your innermost private soul and expose it to make a buck is the lowest. It's filth. And, possibly only in my small limited thinking, so is this lady. The only saving grace? In 20 minutes nobody will remember her, while Martha Stewart will continue as one of America's most successful women."
