A New Day Dawna's for Martha's Apprentice

by Angel Cohn

After a long, hard season on NBC'sThe Apprentice: Martha Stewart, Dawna Stone became the first (and last) winner of the one-shot reality series. Despite some complaints by Martha and her execs that she lacked creativity, Dawna beat out Bethenny Frankel (whose Q&A can be found here) for the title after pulling together her final fashion-show task. The 37-year-old Floridian was rewarded with a new car and a six-figure salary for her new job at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia's new Body + Soul magazine. TVGuide.com dished with Dawna the day after she was crowned to find out what she thinks of her new job.

TVGuide.com: How are you doing?

Dawna Stone: I'm not sure it has sunk in yet, but I'm still smiling ear-to-ear.

TVGuide.com: When do you start working?

Dawna: I don't know all the details yet. Martha was really nice and just said, "Enjoy your holidays." After the new year, I'll fly to New York and Boston to meet everybody.

TVGuide.com: Will that be hard for you and your family to just up and move?

Dawna: My husband and I
