The Executive's employment hereunder shall terminate upon her death. (b) Disability. If, as a result of the Executive's incapacity due to physical or mental illness as determined by a physician selected by the Executive, and reasonably acceptable to the Company, (i) the Executive shall have been substantially unable to perform her duties hereunder for six consecutive months, or for an aggregate of 180 days during any period of twelve consecutive months and (ii) within thirty days after written Notice of Termination is given to the Executive after such six- or twelve- month period, the Executive shall not have returned to the substantial performance of her duties on a full-time basis, the Company shall have the right to terminate the Executive's employment hereunder for "Disability". (c) Cause. The Company shall have the right to terminate the Executive's employment for "Cause." For purposes of this Agreement, the Company shall have "Cause" to terminate the Executive's employment only upon the Executive's: (i) conviction of a felony or willful gross misconduct that, in either case, results in material and demonstrable damage to the business or reputation of the Company; or (ii) willful and continued failure to perform her duties hereunder (other than such failure resulting from the Executive's incapacity due to physical or mental illness or after the issuance of a Notice of Termination by the Executive for Good Reason) within ten business days after the Company delivers to her a written demand for performance that specifically identifies the actions to be performed. For purposes of this Section 6(c), no act or failure to act by the Executive shall be considered "willful" if such act is done by the Executive in the good faith belief that such act is or was to be beneficial to the Company or one or more of its businesses, or such failure to act is due to the Executive's good faith belief that such action would be materially harmful to the Company or one of its businesses. Cause shall not exist unless and until the Company has delivered to the Executive a copy of a resolution duly adopted by a majority of the Board (excluding the Executive for purposes of determining such majority) at a meeting of the Board called and held for such purpose after reasonable (but in no event less than thirty days') notice to the Executive and an opportunity for the Executive, together with her counsel, to be heard before the Board, finding that in the good faith opinion of the Board that "Cause" exists, and specifying the particulars thereof in detail. This Section 6(c) shall not prevent the Executive from challenging in any court of competent jurisdiction the Board's determination that Cause exists or that the -3- Executive has failed to cure any act (or failure to act) that purportedly formed the basis for the Board's determination. (d) Good Reason. The Executive may terminate her employment for "Good Reason" after giving the Company detailed written notice thereof, if the Company shall have failed to cure the event or circumstance constituting "Good Reason" within ten business days after receiving such notice.

The Executive's right to terminate her employment hereunder for Good Reason shall not be affected by her incapacity due to physical or mental illness. The Executive's continued employment shall not constitute consent to, or a waiver of rights with respect to, any act or failure to act constituting Good Reason hereunder. (e) Without Cause. The Company shall have the right to terminate the Executive's employment hereunder without Cause by providing the Executive with a Notice of Termination. (f) Without Good Reason. The Executive shall have the right to terminate her employment hereunder without Good Reason by providing the Company with a Notice of Termination. 7. Termination Procedure.

Any termination of the Executive's employment by the Company or by the Executive during the Employment Period (other than pursuant to Section 6(a)) shall be communicated by written Notice of Termination to the other party. For purposes of this Agreement, a "Notice of Termination" shall mean a notice indicating the specific termination provision in this Agreement relied upon and setting forth in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances claimed to provide a basis for termination of the Executive's employment under that provision. -4- (b) Date of Termination. "Date of Termination" shall mean (i) if the Executive's employment is terminated by her death, the date of her death, (ii) if the Executive's employment is terminated pursuant to Section 6(b), thirty (30) days after the date of receipt of the Notice of Termination (provided that the Executive does not return to the substantial performance of her duties on a full-time basis during such thirty (30) day period), and (iii) if the Executive's employment is terminated for any other reason, the date on which a Notice of Termination is given or any later date (within thirty (30) days after the giving of such notice) set forth in such Notice of Termination. 8. Compensation Upon Termination or During Disability. In the event the Executive is disabled or her employment terminates during the Employment Period, the Company shall provide the Executive with the payments and benefits set forth below.

Additionally, amounts owed to the Executive under this Agreement shall not be offset by any claims the Company may have against the Executive, and the Company's obligation to make the payments provided for in this Agreement, and otherwise to perform its obligations hereunder, shall not be affected by any other circumstances, including, without limitation, any counterclaim, recoupment, defense or other right which the Company may have against the Executive or others. -6- 9. Confidential Information; Non-Competition; Nonsolicitation. (a) Confidential Information. Except as may be required or appropriate in connection with her carrying out her duties under this Agreement, the Executive shall not, without the prior written consent of the Company or as may otherwise be required by law or any legal process, or as is necessary in connection with any adversarial proceeding against the Company (in which case the Executive shall cooperate with the Company in obtaining a protective order at the Company's expense against disclosure by a court of competent jurisdiction), communicate, to anyone other than the Company and those designated by the Company or on behalf of the Company in the furtherance of its business or to perform her duties hereunder, any trade secrets, confidential information, knowledge or data relating to the Company and its businesses and investments, obtained by the Executive during the Executive's employment by the Company and MSLO LLC that is not generally available public knowledge (other than by acts by the Executive in violation of this Agreement). (b) Noncompetition. During the Employment Period and until the 12-month anniversary of the Executive's Date of Termination if the Executive's employment is terminated by the Company for Cause or the Executive terminates employment without Good Reason, the Executive shall not engage in or become associated with any Competitive Activity. For purposes of this Section 9(b), a "Competitive Activity" shall mean any business or other endeavor that engages in any country in which the Company has significant business operations as of the Date of Termination to a significant degree in a business that directly competes with all or any substantial part of the Company's business of (i) producing television and other video programs related to the subject matter of Martha Stewart Living Magazine (the "Magazine") or other magazines of the Company, (ii) designing, developing, licensing, promoting and selling merchandise through catalogs, direct marketing, Internet commerce and retail stores of the product categories in which the Company so participates as of the Date of Termination or using the Executive's name, likeness, image, or voice to promote or market any such product or service or (iii) the creation, publication or distribution of regular or special issues of a magazine in the genre or magazine category of the Magazine (the activities described in clauses (i) through (iii), the "Business"); provided, that, a Competitive Activity shall not include (i) any speaking engagement to the extent such speaking engagement does not promote or endorse a product or service of the Business, (ii) the writing of any book or article relating to subjects other than the Business (e.g., nonfiction relating to the Executive's career or general business advice) or (iii) the television, video or movie business so long as such business does not relate to the Business. The Executive shall be considered to have become "associated with a Competitive Activity" if she becomes involved as an owner, employee, officer, director, independent contractor, agent, partner, advisor, or in any other capacity calling for the rendition of the Executive's personal services, with any individual, partnership, corporation or other organization that is engaged in a Competitive Activity and her involvement relates to a significant extent to the Competitive Activity of such entity; provided, however, that the Executive shall not be prohibited from (a) owning less than one percent (1%) of any publicly traded corporation, whether or not such corporation is in competition with the Company or (b) serving as a director of a corporation or other entity the primary business of which is not a Competitive Activity. If, at any time, the provisions of this Section 9(b) shall be determined to be invalid or unenforceable, by reason of -7- being vague or unreasonable as to area, duration or scope of activity, this Section 9(b) shall be considered divisible and shall become and be immediately amended to only such area, duration and scope of activity as shall be determined to be reasonable and enforceable by the court or other body having jurisdiction over the matter; and the Executive agrees that this Section 9(b) as so amended shall be valid and binding as though any invalid or unenforceable provision had not been included herein. (c) Nonsolicitation. During the Employment Period, and for 12 months after the Executive's Date of Termination if the Executive's employment is terminated by the Company for Cause or the Executive terminates employment without Good Reason, the Executive will not, directly or indirectly, solicit for employment by other than the Company any person (other than any personal secretary or assistant hired to work directly for the Executive) employed by the Company or its affiliated companies, nor will the Executive, directly or indirectly, solicit for employment by other than the Company any person known by the Executive (after reasonable inquiry) to be employed at the time by the Company or its affiliated companies. (d) Injunctive Relief. In the event of a breach or threatened breach of this Section 9, the Executive agrees that the Company shall be entitled to injunctive relief in a court of appropriate jurisdiction to remedy any such breach or threatened breach, the Executive acknowledging that damages would be inadequate and insufficient. 10. Indemnification. (a) General. The Company agrees that if the Executive is made a party or is threatened to be made a party to any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (a "Proceeding"), by reason of the fact that the Executive is or was a trustee, director or officer of the Company, MSLO LLC, or any predecessor to MSLO LLC (including any sole proprietorship owned by the Executive) or any of their affiliates or is or was serving at the request of the Company, MSLO LLC, any predecessor to MSLO LLC (including any sole proprietorship owned by the Executive), or any of their affiliates as a trustee, director, officer, member, employee or agent of another corporation or a partnership, joint venture, limited liability company, trust or other enterprise, including, without limitation, service with respect to employee benefit plans, whether or not the basis of such Proceeding is alleged action in an official capacity as a trustee, director, officer, member, employee or agent while serving as a trustee, director, officer, member, employee or agent, the Executive shall be indemnified and held harmless by the Company to the fullest extent authorized by Delaware law, as the same exists or may hereafter be amended, against all Expenses incurred or suffered by the Executive in connection therewith, and such indemnification shall continue as to the Executive even if the Executive has ceased to be an officer, director, trustee or agent, or is no longer employed by the Company and shall inure to the benefit of her heirs, executors and administrators.

If a claim or request under this Section 10 is not paid by the Company or on its behalf, within thirty (30) days after a written claim or request has been received by the Company, the Executive may at any time thereafter bring suit against the Company to recover the unpaid amount of the claim or request and if successful in whole or in part, the Executive shall be entitled to be paid also the expenses of prosecuting such suit. All obligations for indemnification hereunder shall be subject to, and paid in accordance with, applicable Delaware law. (d) Partial Indemnification. If the Executive is entitled under any provision of this Agreement to indemnification by the Company for some or a portion of any Expenses, but not, however, for the total amount thereof, the Company shall nevertheless indemnify the Executive for the portion of such Expenses to which the Executive is entitled. (e) Advances of Expenses. Expenses incurred by the Executive in connection with any Proceeding shall be paid by the Company in advance upon request of the Executive that the Company pay such Expenses, but only in the event that the Executive shall have delivered in writing to the Company (i) an undertaking to reimburse the Company for Expenses with respect to which the Executive is not entitled to indemnification and (ii) a statement of her good faith belief that the standard of conduct necessary for indemnification by the Company has been met. (f) Notice of Claim. The Executive shall give to the Company notice of any claim made against her for which indemnification will or could be sought under this Agreement.

With respect to any Proceeding as to which the Executive notifies the Company of the commencement thereof: (i) The Company will be entitled to participate therein at its own expense; (ii) Except as otherwise provided below, to the extent that it may wish, the Company will be entitled to assume the defense thereof, with counsel reasonably satisfactory to the Executive, which in the Company's sole discretion may be regular counsel to the Company and may be counsel to other officers and directors of the Company or any subsidiary. The Executive also shall have the right to employ her own counsel in such action, suit or proceeding if she reasonably concludes that failure to do so would involve a conflict of interest between the Company and the Executive, and under such circumstances the fees and expenses of such counsel shall be at the expense of the Company. -9- (iii) The Company shall not be liable to indemnify the Executive under this Agreement for any amounts paid in settlement of any action or claim effected without its written consent. The Company shall not settle any action or claim in any manner which would impose any penalty that would not be paid directly or indirectly by the Company or limitation on the Executive without the Executive's written consent. Neither the Company nor the Executive will unreasonably withhold or delay their consent to any proposed settlement. (h) Non-exclusivity. The right to indemnification and the payment of expenses incurred in defending a Proceeding in advance of its final disposition conferred in this Section 10 shall not be exclusive of any other right which the Executive may have or hereafter may acquire under any statute or certificate of incorporation or by-laws of the Company or any subsidiary, agreement, vote of shareholders or disinterested directors or trustees or otherwise. 11. Legal Fees and Expenses. If any contest or dispute shall arise between the Company and the Executive regarding any provision of this Agreement, the Company shall reimburse the Executive for all legal fees and expenses reasonably incurred by the Executive in connection with such contest or dispute, but only if the Executive prevails to a substantial extent with respect to the Executive's claims brought and pursued in connection with such contest or dispute. Such reimbursement shall be made as soon as practicable following the resolution of such contest or dispute (whether or not appealed) to the extent the Company receives reasonable written evidence of such fees and expenses. 12.
