Martha Stewart Forced To Explain: 'I'm Not Drunk'

09/21/2010 10:39 pm ET | Updated May 25, 2011

Just five hours after tweeting about an upcoming cocktail event, Martha Stewart has taken to Twitter to announce that she is not drunk.

The announcement came after a series of typo-laden and seemingly random tweets about her daughter Alexis's new Hallmark Channel show.

"Come now to the New York Botanic gardens for cocktails in the ms herb garden i will be here - tix still available at the entrance," Martha tweeted late Tuesday afternoon.

"I really want to know if you are finding our new tv programming on hallmark. Let $e know," she followed up three hours later. Her program has struggled in the ratings since moving to the Hallmark Channel.

"forgive the typo!!$ odd how that happens but tweeting on a blackberry in the dark is difficult the programs start at 10 am e, 9 am central," she wrote about her typo.

And then she began soliciting feedback on Alexis' show, ranging from "should the whatever girls sit on stools, a couch or chairs" to "should alexis change her hair style everyday??" and "should jennifer always wear black stockings?" Jennifer is a reference to Alexis's "Whatever, Martha!" co-host, Jennifer Koppleman.

This prompted a range of reactions from the Twitter community, many assuming (or asking whether) the domestic diva was drunk.

"Hell yeah, nothing makes me feel better about my alcoholism than @MarthaStewart and her drunken tweets," wrote @thomascornhole.

"Quick. @MarthaStewart is tweeting drunk. Read it before she deletes it," wrote @bdgrabinski.

"Martha, I love you, but buzzed tweeting is not your expertise," wrote @christinalois.

Martha then clarified that she was not, in fact, drunk, by tweeting, "i am not drunk-just curious if i can get some action going on twitter time to write my editor's letter now."
