Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg have a cooking competition show together. It’s called Martha and Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party and it’s not bad. You can pick up a few tips but I wouldn’t watching it for proper cooking lessons. An episode is only as good as its guests, though. But even when the guest sucks, Martha and Snoop have great chemistry and seem to genuinely get along. Which, although delightful, is a bit surprising. So, when Snoop appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show, Stern asked Snoop if their friendship was legit. Snoop said not only is it the real deal, they hang out socially quite a bit. Stern, like the rest of, wondered – what the hell brought these two crazy kids together? According to Snoop, it was Justin Bieber and pot.
Okay, what Snoop really said was that he’d watched Martha’s show often, which kind of brings up a few other questions about Snoop’s downtime routines, and he noticed how much the hip hop community was represented on her show. Snoop was so impressed by this, he made a point to get himself on her show where he made green brownies with Martha. You can watch the clip here. It’s cute because the ‘green’ Martha adds is decorating sugar, not what Snoop is more famously associated with but everyone is in on the joke. Following that, Martha and Snoop were both scheduled to speak at the Justin Bieber Roast. Why they would make that a priority in their schedules is beyond me, but we are all the better for it. They sat next to each other and – shocker – Snoop smoked the whole show. So, when Martha got up and delivered her very funny and relaxed roast, Snoop attributed her smooth delivery to the contact high he’d given her. And from the smoke, a friendship emerged. Their unlikely alliance made TV execs salivate, which led to their show. I haven’t heard anything about a season three for Potluck. I hope It continues, they look like the enjoy the heck out of making it.
Thanks to Jezebel for the story, btw. Here’s the clip. It’s Snoop on Howard Stern so it goes without saying this is NSFW due to language:

It’s odd that a successful musician would associate with a convicted felon.
I literally did a coffee spit-take. Thank you. Also, you owe me a new keyboard 😉
I remember Martha’s first show out of jail and she had Snoop on and they were so great together (their segment was in a greenhouse. HA !!!). Their conversation just flowed and you can tell that they both just got a kick out of each other. So when I heard about their show together, I was only surprised that it took that long for it to happen.
I follow Martha on IG and she hosted dinner for Snoop and his friends along with her daughter and grandchildren. The menu sounded fly.
So yeah, these two I believe are legit friends.
And, at one point her neighbor in Connecticut was 50 Cent.
This is the weirdest friendship but very amusing
+1 I bet high Martha is fun Martha though.
I remember when it first came out they were friends, I was like huh, how the heck did that happen. Martha is the epitome of white Greenwich CT (not sure she still has a house there but she used to at least) and I wondered what she could have in common with Snoop. But food brings people together and people really bond over it. I’ve gotten used to it and now I think it would be weird if they weren’t friends!
Martha has many friendships that you wouldn’t think of instantly. The one that sticks out is Terry Richardson’s wife/girlfriend/assistant Skinny. Martha was at their couples baby shower, which included dildos. I think they all spent Easter together. I remember because Martha shared a photo taken of Martha and Skinny with the twins during Easter weekend. Very odd..
You know who are also great friends? Bette Midler and 50 Cent.
Their show is fantastic. I DVR all the episodes. They look like they are having so much fun.
So random and wonderful.
These two adore/get a kick out of each other and their differences are what make them such a great pair. I love to read about & witness “oddball” friendships! I always find them so interesting 🙂
Martha is a badass and I LOVE her. And Snoop has always been someone who I see as very observant, very smart, and very aware of exactly what’s going on in the world around him, so I can definitely see Martha being drawn to him and seeking our his friendship. He and Martha are EVERYTHING together. I love it!!
Side note: Snoop’s new reboot of “The Joker’s Wild” is ridiculous and cheesy, and Snoop makes it awesome. My husband flipped to it one night a few weeks ago and we couldn’t turn it off. It was hilarious. Completely mindless, but fun.
