VH1 confirmed today that the network has given the green light to a new weekly series featuring Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. The show, which has the current working title of Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party, will see the duo inviting their celebrity friends over for "a half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation, and fun where nothing is off limits." There's no word yet on just who the celebrity guests will be, or on how many episodes we'll be treated to, but the show is slated to begin airing on VH1 sometime this fall.
In case you didn't know, Snoop and Stewart make a pretty good team on screen. During the run of Stewart's recent daytime show, Martha, the two had their first appearances on screen together, where they made mashed potatoes and, about a year later, brownies. They also managed to talk about vocabulary in a way that only Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart could. Take a look at the magic:
That's right, guys. Snoop Dogg actually taught Martha Stewart about "fo shizzle" and "crack-a-lackin" on her morning show, and, from the sound of it, she enjoyed the lesson thoroughly. OK, so, where has this crazy ass show been all my life? I mean, seriously. These two are going to have a no-holds-barred weekly party with booze, cooking and celebrity chit chat? How will this not be the best thing that's ever happened to TV? I couldn't help but notice how the announcement of the show mentioned that the party will be a "half-baked evening." I only say this because of Snoop Dogg's well-known proclivities, but, um, might we actually get to watch a high Martha Stewart on Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party? There is literally no one who will declare that that possibility is not awesome.
Stewart and Snoop haven't made a lot of appearances on TV together, but their brief time on her morning show has led to a couple of other memorable meetings. They each showed up during Comedy Central's roast of Justin Bieber to take the singer down a peg or two, and they also recently impressed host Michael Strahan while playing on ABC's new $100,000 Pyramid. This will be the first time that Stewart and Snoop will actually co-host a show.
Obviously, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg both know a lot about entertaining and partying, so there's almost no way that this isn't going to be a show with a lot of know-how behind it. I almost can't wait to see how all this will go down. Who will they invite over? What drinks will they serve? Will they make mashed potatoes and brownies? Will the brownies be "half-baked?" We can all find out when Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party premieres on VH1 this fall.
