When Martha Stewart leaves Alderson Federal Prison on March 6, she won’t be alone. Aside from the paparazzi trailing her, she will join countless celebs who have made high-profile mistakes and lived to tell the tale. She’s already taken notes from Donald Trump, who found redemption after near-bankruptcy and two notorious divorces by hosting The Apprentice on NBC: Stewart will jump into her own upcoming version of the series. It’s a good thing. Here are a few more folks she could learn from.

HUGH GRANT Caught with a prostitute at the height of his career, Grant salvaged his rep by goin’ on Leno. If he can do it, so can Stewart — who was never that cuddly in the first place. She should be contrite and, if possible, affect a British accent.

GEORGE MICHAEL The former Wham! frontman got caught with his pants down in an L.A. restroom, then spoofed the incident in his ”Outside” video. Possible covers for Martha: Chicago’s ”Hard to Say I’m Sorry,” Johnny Cash’s ”Folsom Prison Blues.”

O.J. SIMPSON Hmm. On second thought, try another Simpson…

ASHLEE SIMPSON When all else fails, blame your bad decisions on acid reflux.
