Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg are together again, and this could be their craziest collaboration yet. The unlikely celebrity duo is set to co-star on a new reality cooking show for VH1, according to Variety. The working title for the unscripted series is Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party, and it will feature celebrity guests who will stop by as Stewart, 75, and Snoop, 44, host a weekly dinner party.
In a joint statement, Martha said she and her rapper co-star plan to “redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way.” Snoop promised fans will get to see him and his “homegirl” in a whole new light.
“My homegirl, Martha and I have a special bond that goes back. We’re gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can’t wait for you to see how we roll together!”
According to E! News, the new Martha Stewart cooking show is described as “a half-baked evening of cooking, conversation, and fun where nothing is off limits.” In a promotional video, Martha joked that she can’t wait to get the rap legend in the kitchen for some cooking and conversation. Snoop said the idea was cooked up over “a glass of wine, herbs, tea, atmosphere.” Stewart also promised the show will be a “rizzle dizzle fo-shizzle.”
Of course, this will not be the first time Martha and Snoop Dogg have teamed up together for TV. Stewart and Dogg are longtime—albeit unlikely—pals, and they recently partnered together for the celebrity edition of ABC’s $100,000 Pyramid, where they traded clues on a variety of topics after a hilarious practice round centered on their polar opposite passions: Cannabis and home furnishings.
In addition, the rapper has turned up on Martha’s Martha Stewart Living talk show several times, most notably for a Christmas cookies segment that had them baking green brownies. Stewart joked that they would add Snoop’s favorite secret ingredient later.

In another memorable MSL segment, Martha Stewart and the Doggy Style rapper whipped up a batch of mashed potatoes using the rapper’s special ingredient: Cognac. Martha added high-fat ingredients like heavy cream as she noted that Snoop is so skinny. (He described his lanky build as “athletic.”) The “Gin and Juice” rapper also joked that he had never made mashed potatoes with a “machine” (translation: a Kitchen Aid mixer) before, and explained that he’s from the hood so they just karate chop the potatoes with a knife.
Stewart and Snoop also crossed paths on last year’s Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber, where Miss Martha showed an unexpectedly raunchy side of herself. During the roast, Martha gave a shout out to her future cooking show co-star and revealed that the brownie-making episode with Snoop was one of the highest rated episodes of her Martha Stewart Living talk show ever. Martha also dished that she has used his recipe ever since.
In an interview on Seth Meyers’ late night talk show, Martha admitted that while she doesn’t smoke marijuana, she did get a contact high after sitting next to a blunt-toting Snoop for four hours at the Comedy Central roast.
“The secondary smoke is just as powerful … so I was totally high by the time I got up to that microphone,” Stewart joked.
While Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg are an odd couple, they are definitely entertaining and they have a surprisingly cute bond. In fact, this Dogg is a pussycat when he’s around the lifestyle queen.
