Martha Stewart went from being one of the most beloved figures overseas to an outcast. Stewart was denied a visa to travel to Britain for business meetings.
Stewart was not the first American to be denied entry into Britain. Snoop Dogg has also been turned away by Britain's Home Office, who is in charge of the UK Border Agency.
"We continue to oppose the entry to the UK of individuals where we believe their presence in the United Kingdom is not conducive to the public good or where they have been found guilty of serious criminal offenses abroad," said a spokesman for Britain's Home Office.
Stewart was sentenced to five months of prison and another five months of house arrest for being found guilty of making false statements, conspiracy, an obstruction of agency proceedings.
"She (Stewart) has engagements with English companies and business leaders and hopes this can be resolved so that she will be able to visit soon," said Charles Koppelman, Chairman of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia.
