Martha Stewart makes history as she graces the cover of sports illustrated. The cover was published on Monday, showing the fun, sexy side of the 81-year-old entrepreneur. “When I heard that I was going to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, I thought, ‘Oh, that’s pretty good, I’m going to be the oldest person I think ever on a cover of Sports Illustrated,'” Stewart expressed. The author is familiar with the modeling game. In her teenage years, she worked with a few companies, including Channel.
