In previous televised incarnations of Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer—Whatever, Martha and Whatever, You’re Wrong!—Alexis and her co-host would make fun of old Martha Stewart Living episodes and attempt to cook or create one of Martha’s projects to see just how feasible they were. In other words, she wasn't afraid to troll her mom.

Andrew and Martha met in 1960 on a blind date and married a year later in 1961. However, the two separated in 1987 after almost three decades of marriage, with the divorce being finalized in 1990.
Andrew has expressed some regrets when it comes to his parenting of Alexis. “I think we did a poor job as parents," he revealed. "We were too involved in our professional lives and fixing up the house. We were always making the home into a mythological place. But it wasn't a home—we didn't spend enough time with Lexi."
Andrew also revealed he regretted not having the chance to "discuss the separation with Alexis," which led to the father and daughter becoming estranged. "She saw her mother hurt, and she thought I was uncaring. One way or another, she got the facts wrong as well as the interpretation.”

During an appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2007, Alexis revealed she was spending up to $27,000 per month for IVF procedures and $6,000 additionally on fertility medications. At that time, she had endured three failed embryo transfers. Alexis finally turned to the use of a gestational surrogate for both of her children, born in 2011 and 2012, respectively.
How much is Martha Stewart's daughter worth?

It is also likely Alexis has a significant inheritance coming to her as Martha’s only child.

What happened with Donald Trump and Alexis Stewart?
Back in 2005, when Donald Trump was simply a reality star and not a politician, NBC tried to spinoff his series The Apprentice with one hosted by Martha Stewart, The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. However, Martha’s version, which saw her daughter Alexis Stewart by her side, did not take off and was canceled in 2006 due to low ratings. Despite Martha and Trump apparently having a longtime friendship, Trump reacted to the news with a scathing open letter to the Martha Stewart Living mogul, in which he skewers not just her show but also her daughter.
The letter read, in part, "It’s about time you started taking responsibility for your failed version of The Apprentice. Your performance was terrible in that the show lacked mood, temperament and just about everything else a show needs for success. I knew it would fail as soon as I first saw it—and your low ratings bore me out."
Martha responded in part, “The letter is so mean-spirited and reckless that I almost can't believe my long-time friend Donald Trump wrote it."
We can imagine their friendship likely did not recover, especially considering in a 2006 appearance on daughter Alexis’ radio show Whatever with Alexis and Jennifer, the two spoke about Trump unfavorably, referring to him as “evil.”
Martha also publicly supported Trump’s rival, Hillary Clinton, in the 2016 presidential race.
