Martha Stewart Recalls Being Struck by Lightning Three Times: ‘I Just Attract Electricity’

While playing a game of “What’s The Lie, Martha?” on Thursday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Stewart, 80, revealed that she’s been struck by lightning three times — and she joked that it might actually be “good for you — if it doesn’t kill you.”

“Once it came out of my water faucet,” she explained. “I was leaning against an iron sink and I saw the lightning go down the pipe out in my garden, and then it came back up through the water and hit me right in my stomach, threw me on the floor, and my husband found me. And I was alive, but not very comfortable.”

“Another time, a lightning bolt came right through a skylight in my house,” she added.

After experiencing both of those incidents, Stewart joked that she “just attracts electricity” because she’s “so powerful.” Although she didn’t elaborate on “Ellen” about what happened the third time, she did tell Snoop Dogg in 2016 that she was once struck by lightning while talking on the phone.

“Going to jail does not make you stronger,” the chef said during a game of “Two Thighs and a Truth” on “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.” “Only lightning makes you stronger.”
