For some time, there hasn’t been a show on TV that has come as close to being as oddly perfect as Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. On any given episode you might see Martha Stewart try on bling or Snoop crack a few weed jokes while making Cornish game hens. It was equal parts weird, educational, and hilarious. A gangsta rapper pairing up with a grandmother and businesswoman might have seemed like a recipe destined for failure, but the opposite couldn’t be more true.The show, with its rotating list of celebrity guests like Lil Yachty and Rick Ross, proved to be a ratings blockbuster and a hit with critics, even getting an Emmy nomination. Though the show ended after two seasons, there’s nothing wrong with a lil’ nostalgia. Here’s what you need to know about the very entertaining and one-of-a-kind cooking show that was Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.
Their friendship is real
The idea of a cooking show with co-hosts Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart sounds not just far-fetched, but absurd. After all, what could a gangster rapper and the domestic goddess have in common? Sure, they might be like oil and water on the surface, with decades between their ages and coming from completely different backgrounds, but their friendship is 100 percent genuine.
The pair have had a strong fondness for one another since they first met when Snoop was a guest on Martha back in 2008. Over the years, their friendship has only grown and is what Snoop calls “a natural combination of love, peace, and harmony.”
