Martha Stewart might understand what actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman are going through during their recent legal troubles.

The former Food Network star was asked by Entertainment Tonight if she had any advice for the two actresses as they face upcoming legal battles.

“I just feel sorry for them, and they might have made a bad mistake,” Stewart answered. The business mogul herself has been involved in her own legal problems in the past.

Stewart was convicted of felony charges of conspiracy, obstruction of an agency proceeding and making false statements to federal investigators in a highly publicized trial in 2004. (RELATED: Martha Stewart Becomes Adviser Of Marijuana Company Canopy Growth)
