The Truth About Martha Stewart And Snoop Dogg's Relationship

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg seemed like such an unlikely duo at first, but with time, these two have epitomized #BestFriendGoals. Sure, they weren't instant besties, but their chemistry was undeniable from the start, when the rapper appeared on Martha to cook up some mashed potatoes back in 2008. That episode went so well that Snoop returned to help Stewart bake brownies, and by 2014, the famous cook was admitting during a Reddit AMA, "I wish I were closer friends with Snoop Dogg." 

A year later, she got her wish — thanks in part to JBiebs — when she and Snoop were seated side-by-side at the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber. "She sat next to me and she stole the show. She was the funniest roaster that night," the musician reflected on the Today show in 2019. Calling Stewart "the big sister I never had," Snoop added, "In that moment, I knew I wanted to be alongside this lady for the rest of my life." For her part, Stewart shared, "I like his laid back energy. I like his outspokenness, I like his sense of timing, and I actually like to watch him cook."

Just like that, showbiz's culinary odd couple was born. But while Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg's fans are undoubtedly grateful for this special — and, quite frankly, entertaining — bond, what else is there to know about this surprising celeb friendship?

Snoop Dogg gave Martha Stewart a contact high

In 2018, Snoop Dogg referred to Martha Stewart as his "homegirl" on The Howard Stern Show, before sharing an interesting tidbit about their early friendship: he accidentally gave her a contact high while filming that Justin Bieber roast. Oops! "By the time she gets up there to tell her jokes, she's whacked out of her head ... [and] high as a motherf**ker," Snoop said. "And she went up there and killed it." Don't believe him? Well, Stewart admitted as much was true during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

The rapper, of course, is famous for his love of marijuana, which the cook fully supports. Telling The Hollywood Reporter that she's "never been a prude," Stewart remarked, "So someone smokes marijuana? Big deal! People smoke cigarettes and die from cancer. I haven't heard of anybody dying from cannabis. I'm quite egalitarian and liberal when it comes to stuff like that."

While Stewart isn't a smoker, she is known to wet her whistle from time to time ... but Snoop admittedly isn't much of a drinker. "She knows how to set up a drink," he told Us Weekly. "I'm not a drinker. But whenever I'm in the presence of Martha, I just somehow, someway get a glass of vodka or some sort of drink." During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the titular host asked, "So Martha will get you a bit drunk, but it doesn't go the other way?" To which Snoop jokingly replied, "We're working on that."

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg's relationship inspired a hit TV show

2016 saw the launch of Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg's VH1 cooking show, Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party. It was later rebranded as Martha & Snoop's Potluck Party Challenge, and even earned the duo an Emmy nomination in 2017 for outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program. The not-so-secret reason behind the show's success was whatever makes their friendship work. "I think it's just that we're an odd pair and people like contrast, right?" Stewart told Us Weekly in 2019. Meanwhile, Snoop explained, "You just put two people together that love people, we love people, so it's not just always about us ... We attract the energy of other people." 

As of this writing, the jury's still out on whether Stewart and Snoop will reunite for a fourth season, but that's okay, because they've got plenty of other projects up their chef coat sleeves — including co-writing a cookbook. While the rapper described himself as "a baby in the cookbook world," he explained to Us Weekly, "Martha's breaking me in. She's taking her time, and she's really molding me into the chef that I want to be." 

In the meantime, they'll probably continue to create other entertaining content, like their hilarious cooking-centered spoof on Titanic, or the time they substituted clay with a chocolate cake to reenact the pottery scene from Ghost. Y'know, totally normal bestie stuff that's about as unpredictable as this celeb pairing — and we wouldn't have it any other way.
