They Make a “Weird Couple.”
Martha Stewart first met Snoop Dogg in 2008, when he was a guest on her daytime series “The Martha Stewart Show.” A video of that appearance demonstrates, the apparent polar opposites got along swimmingly from the very start. As they prepared mashed potatoes together, they displayed a funny, easy rapport that made the show a joy to watch. Years later, Martha looked back at their first joint TV appearance during an interview with Today’s Harry Smith. “What a weird couple we were,” Martha recalled. “Yeah, we were odd,” Snoop agreed. Examining their relationship from a big-picture point of view, Martha sees her friendship with Snoop as a template that can be followed to help larger societal divisions. “The mixing of cultures is really what I want to see happen in the US and so does Snoop,” Stewart told The Hollywood Reporter. “There shouldn’t be any question about us getting along. There shouldn’t be any discrimination.”
Martha Stewart Likes Spending Time with Snoop Off-Camera
By all accounts, the affection that Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg show for each other isn’t an act they play up for the cameras. In an interview with Today, Snoop declared, “I love Martha, like I love her, like for real.” Martha feels the same way, and in 2018 invited Snoop and his crew for lunch at her famed farm in Bedford, New York. As she wrote on her blog, they all “had a lovely time.” Lunch included turkey meatloaf, spinach quiche, fried chicken, salmon tacos, and a fresh garden salad, featuring lettuce she grew herself. “Snoop Dogg and five members of his gang stopped by the farm on their way to an event in New York City,” she wrote in her post alongside a photo of everyone posing on the front steps of Chez Martha.
