This Is How Snoop Dogg And Martha Stewart Met

We couldn't imagine life today without the sweet, sassy, and highly amusing banter of the unlikely duo of "Snoop and Martha." Remember when Snoop said, "I was raised on fried chicken. My pacifier was a drumstick?" (via Billboard). And Stewart can hang fo-shizzle, with snappy comebacks like, "I don't know who's going to be more fried by the end of this show." Like pineapple on pizza — this truly unique pairing just works, but everyone's probably asked the same question: How did this happen?

Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party debuted on VH1 in 2016, but the two actually met eight years earlier on Stewart's The Martha Stewart Show (via Oprah Magazine). Snoop appeared on her show again in 2009, but they didn't truly unite until Comedy Central's roast of Justin Bieber's in 2015. "She sat next to me, and she stole the show. She was the funniest roaster that night. In that moment, I knew I wanted to be alongside this lady for the rest of my life," Snoop said about Stewart.

A combination made for chronic success

Snoop and Stewart definitely hit it off after sitting together at Bieber's roast for the entire evening. But, this wouldn't be a Snoop Dogg story if there wasn't a little (or a lot) of, well, marijuana, too. As shared by Oprah originally from an interview with Howard Stern, The D-O-GG was practicing his trademark hobby: "The whole roast, I'm just smokin' dope. It's just secondhand smoke, secondhand smoke. By the time she get up there to tell her jokes, she's whacked out of her head, but she steals the f*****g show."

Stewart, meanwhile, found the whole situation delightful. So did Jersey Shore creator SallyAnn Salsano, who quickly pitched them the cooking show we all know today (via Hollywood Reporter). It's not just Snoop who praises his co-host, as Stewart also loves the mashup their partnership creates. "I like learning a whole new genre of individuals and a whole new genre of cooking," she says. Going further she adds, "The melding of cultures is really what I want to see happen in the United States and so does Snoop. There shouldn't be any divides. There shouldn't be any question that we can all get together and get along."
