Who is Alexis Stewart?

Alexis Gilbert Stewart was born in Manhattan, New York City USA, on 27 September 1965 – her zodiac sign is Libra, and she holds American nationality. She’s a TV show host and radio personality, who’s probably known best for having been the co-host of the daily radio talk-show “Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer”, which aired on the now-defunct Sirius Satellite Radio.

Early life and education

Alexis was raised as an only child in Manhattan, by her mother Martha Stewart who’s a famous American businesswoman, author and TV personality, and father Andrew who was a lawyer, and who completed his education at Yale Law School; Martha and Andrew separated in 1987 and divorced three years later.

Having been raised by academically educated parents, Alexis was urged to focus on her education from a very early age, and was thus amongst the top of her class while attending a local elementary school. She went on to attend Putney School in Vermont, and was highly active during her four years there, as she appeared in various plays performed at the school, wrote articles for the school sports newspaper, and played tennis.

Upon matriculating in 1983, Alexis enrolled at Columbia University’s Barnard College, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in English in 1987; her mother Martha had attended the same college.

Alexis’ career

Alexis hasn’t shared many details with the public concerning her early career, but it’s known that she had several jobs in the two decades following her graduation, and was mostly focused on working on radio.

She gained recognition in October 2005, when she and Jennifer Koppelman Hutt began hosting the talk-show “Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer”. It was characterized by them talking about whatever came to their mind, and ran through to 2011 when it ended.

Concurrently, on 16 September 2008, Alexis and Jennifer began hosting the show “Whatever, Martha” for Fine Living Network, and it was renewed for another season in 2009, which premiered on 23 September; in the show, the two women made fun of the TV show “Martha Stewart Living”, which featured Alexis’ mother during her everyday life. Martha seemed to like the show, and even appeared in an episode, making fun of herself. “Whatever, Martha” aired its final episode on 10 June 2011.

On 9 September 2011, Alexis published her book “Whateverland: Learning to Live Here”.

She has since been staying away from the media’s attention, and her most recent work which the public knows about, was her production of the 2013 episode “I Love Cannons” of the reality series “Lords of War”.

However, it’s also been revealed that Alexis is today the owner of the East Hampton Gym, and the Bridgehampton Motel, which no doubt keeps her busy and adds to her net worth.

Love life and husband

Alexis prefers to keep the details of her love life away from the media’s attention, but it’s still widely known that she was once a married woman.

She exchanged vows with the American lawyer John Robert Cuti in 1997, in a private ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members; John is also a guitarist, and once played for The Inflatables. John later worked as Alexis’ mother’s lawyer, when she was found guilty of lying about a stock sale and obstruction of justice, and was sentenced to spend five months behind bars, another five in home confinement, and was put on two years’ probation.

Alexis and John divorced in 2004.

She has two children by gestational surrogacy: her daughter Jude was born on 8 March 2011, while her son Truman was born on 9 March 2012. Alexis hasn’t disclosed any details concerning the children’s father(s). She hasn’t spoken of any other men whom she has perhaps been with, so as of April 2022, Alexis seems to be single, was once married to John Robert Cuti, and has two children born to a gestational surrogate mother.

Hobbies and interesting facts

Alexis has an Instagram account but isn’t very active on the network; she’s today followed by more than 2,500 people, but has uploaded only seven pictures, four of which feature her two children.

She’s into travelling, and has apparently been all around the world for both work and pleasure, while her dream travel destination is Paris, France.

Alexis is a lover of animals, with dolphins and seals being her favorites; she’s volunteered with and donated money to a couple of animal shelters.

She’s a bit of a fashionista, as she’s trying to keep up with the latest fashion trends.

Alexis enjoys watching movies late at night, and her favorite actor and actress are Will Smith and Angelina Jolie, while a couple of her favorite films include “Mr. and Mrs Smith”, “Girl, Interrupted” and “Men in Black”.

Age, height and net worth

Alexis’ age is 56. She has short brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 10ins (1.8m) and she weighs around 155lbs (70kgs).

As of April 2022, Alexis’ net worth has been estimated at more than $1 million, while her mother Martha’s net worth is reputedly over $400 million.

Who is her mother Martha Stewart?

Martha Helen Kostyra was born in Jersey City, New Jersey USA, on 3 August 1941 – her zodiac sign is Leo, and she holds American nationality. She’s probably known best for the diversified media and merchandising company Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. (MSLO) which she founded in 1997, and which has been owned by Marquee Brands LLC since April 2019.

Martha was raised in Nutley, New Jersey alongside her five siblings, by their mother Martha Kostyra (nee Ruszkowski) who died in 2007, aged 93, and father Edward Kostyra who passed away in 1979, aged 67; both Martha and Edward were teachers.

She was very young when she began modelling, and was 15 when she appeared in a Unilever commercial. Martha learned a lot about cooking and sewing from her mother while growing up, and her father taught her gardening. She matriculated from Nutley High School in 1959, and then enrolled at Barnard College of Columbia University, graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in architectural history in 1963.

It was while still attending college, in July 1961 that Martha married Andrew Stewart.

She began working as a stockbroker in 1967, and a decade later launched a catering business from her basement. Martha attracted some attention for her cooking skills, and her cookbook “Entertaining” was published on 13 December 1982, ghostwritten by Elizabeth Hawes; she has since published many books, including “Martha Stewart’s Pies & Tarts” in 1985, “The Wedding Planner” in 1988 and “Martha Stewart’s Christmas” in 1989.

The first issue of her magazine “Martha Stewart Living” was published in 1990, and in 2002 reached more than two million sold copies per issue. It was in 1993 that her show “Martha Stewart Living” was launched, and it went on to air until 2004.

After she was released from prison in March 2005, she launched “The Martha Stewart Show”, and published another book “The Martha Rules”. The year 2012 saw her acting with her appearance in an episode of the mystery crime series “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”.

Most recently, on 31 July 2020, Martha’s new show “Martha Knows Best” premiered on HGTV.

Following Martha and Andrew’s divorce in 1990, she began dating the famous British actor and film director Sir Philip Anthony Hopkins, but was no longer able to be with him after having watched the movie “The Silence of the Lambs”. She then spent the following 15 years dating the billionaire Charles Simonyi on-and-off, but they parted ways for good in February 2008.
