Snoop Dog and Martha Stewart have one of the most unconventional and surprising friendships in Hollywood. Their relationship dates back to 2008, when Snoop made a guest appearance on Martha's self-titled cooking program, Martha. He helped her whip up some mashed potatoes, and life would never be the same again. Their chemistry was instant: a new BFF duo was born.
The most endearing thing about this pair is that they are hilarious together. Martha, who isn't well versed in Snoop's variety of music, makes a huge effort to learn her friend's jams. And Snoop, who wasn't raised in the kitchen, has picked up quite a few tips since Martha has come into his life. Their ability to be silly and laidback together is one of the most wonderful things that has happened this decade. Always keeping it light, the pair have proved that friendships can come in the most unexpected places.
After nurturing their friendship for several years and appearing on different programs together, they decided to join forces and start their own cooking show. The response to VH1's Martha And Snoop's Potluck Dinner has already been quite explosive, with a second season currently airing. Their recipes and banter are fun, easy, and breezy. These two certainly shocked the world when they paired up and we have all the dirty details coming at you. Here are 15 Photos Of Martha Stewart Snoop Dog Doesn't Want Us To See
15 Bakers Gonna Bake
Haters gonna hate, and bakers gonna bake! These two besties have more than one thing in common — their shared interests are many, but perhaps at the top of the list is their mutual love of baking. Martha's variety of baking might be more on the chocolate chip cookie level, but those are just minor details! Martha has had more exposure to the green stuff since befriending Snoop. On the stage of the Roast of Justin Bieber, Martha claims to have gotten high just from breathing in the second hand smoke from Snoop's side of the stage. We would love to be flies on the wall if these two ever did share a baked treat together. Can you imagine the conversations and silliness that would ensue? Just thinking about it is hilarious.
14 Turn The Lights Down Low
Now here's a romantic shot, if we've ever seen one! Look at the sultry come-hither eyes that Martha is giving! And Snoop seems to be focused on Martha's shirt. This photo was shot went the two filmed a teaser trailer for their second season, re-enacting the epic scene between Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in Ghost. The dynamic in this photo shoot must've been something else. Even more hilarious would be if Snoop and Martha actually started a secret romance. Maybe they have, and we're all just in the dark about it, They do say opposites attract, and Martha has her fair share of bad-gal essence. We think it could work! They're not that different, and with a 30-year age gap, it would spice things up for Martha, and for Snoop too!
13 What Are In Those Brownies?
When Snoop Dogg first appeared on Martha's cooking program, Martha, they got to baking — you guessed it — brownies! To make the segment even more entertaining and hilarious, they added plenty of green food colouring. After this brownie baking session, the pair were pretty much inseparable and a new tradition was born. Nowadays, with their own hit TV show doing very well, the pair bake brownies on their down time. We can't be the first to question if their brownies ever have any special ingredients. Maybe the special baked goods are only for party nights at Snoops, but we definitely think these two have concocted some adult snacks together.
12 They Roast Together
They bake together and they roast together. What can't this incredible duo do? Comedy Central's Roast of Justin Bieber in 2015 was another epic moment when Snoop and Martha came together to slay. Martha made some hilarious prison jokes that hit close to home. One of her best lines? "Justin you have no idea what you're in for. I'm sure it's great to have 60 million followers on Twitter, but the only place people will be following you in jail is into the shower." Martha famously served 5 months behind bars in 2004 for felony conspiracy and for making false statements to law enforcement. The legal charges revolved around stock market shares that were sold right before the value dropped, on the advice of her stock broker, who was sharing information illegally.
11 Break Out The Bubs
Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg might strike you as big boozehounds, but the truth is, they are both very light drinkers. Martha never skips an opportunity to make a new signature cocktail or to whip up something fruity and delicious for the holidays, but her consumption is extremely moderate. Snoop said he gave up the bottle several years ago, after having an incident with a woman who allegedly put something in his drink at a club. He said that drinking just to drink is no longer fun, and that he is usually sipping on water or cranberry juice at events and clubs. He hasn't decreased his smoking habits, though. Cutting out the booze is a good first step toward longevity, though. The bubbly photos in this shoot were probably not devoured by these responsible pals.
10 Beach Daze
This is clearly photoshopped, but we couldn't resist adding it to the list. Can you imagine seeing these two frolicking together on a Caribbean beach? Well, we don't know if it'll be on the shores of Jamaica. Although Snoop Dogg allegedly converted to Rastafarianism in 2012, he hasn't made a ton of Jamaican buds. Many members of the Jamaican Rastafarian community have criticized Snoop's non-conformity to the Rastafari way of life. Snoop changed his name to "Snoop Lion" after he started identifying as a Rastafarian, and has claimed that he thinks he might be the reincarnate of Bob Marley. The dates don't really match up, as Snoop was 10 years old when Marley died — minor details!
9 Deck The Halls
One thing's for sure, when it comes to the Christmas season, Martha is our girl. She has been producing Christmas cheer for decades through Christmas cooking specials, cookbooks, magazines, and just about any other medium you can think of. She's the queen of Christmas baking, Christmas crafting, Christmas wrapping, and Christmas gifting. And who better to share her Christmas fever with than Snoop Lion? Although he's not a Christian (he allegedly converted to Islam, and then again to Rastafarianism) it didn't stop him from joining in on Christmas merriment. Bring on the ugly Christmas sweaters, fun brownies, and Snoop Dogg's album "Presents Christmas in Tha Dogg House" and chill into a whole new kind of Christmas this year!
8 Hands Off My Man!
Snoop might be getting nice and cozy with his girl Martha, but the truth is, he's still very much in love with his wife. In 1997, he married his high-school sweetie, Shante Taylor. The couple have three children together. In 2004, after having struggled through a very rough patch in their marriage, Snoop filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. They split briefly, but couldn't stay away from each other for long. In 2008, they renewed their vows and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Snoop is not the only one in the family with a criminal record, it seems. Shante was arrested in 2008 and charged with a DUI. A little baggage isn't such a big deal when you think of all of the nonsense Snoop inevitably put her through over their 30-year relationship!
7 Martha Still Has Swag
And what about Little Miss Martha's dating history? We don't often hear about her personal life (other than the very personal details of her jail time). She was married to Yale law student Andrew Stewart in 1961. Their marriage lasted 3 decades and they had one daughter together, Alexis. After their divorce in 1990, Martha briefly dated Sir Anthony Hopkins, but allegedly broke things off after she saw Silence of The Lambs. She was perturbed by the movie and had a hard time continuing a romantic relationship with him afterward. Now if that's not a creative break-up, I don't know what is. "Hey, Anthony. Really into you, but after seeing you play Hannibal Lecter, I'm going to have to take a hard pass on our date tonight." As far as we know, Martha is currently single.
6 Gang Signs And Slang
Martha and Snoop admittedly hail from different backgrounds. Growing up on the Eastside area of Long Beach, California, Snoop had an early introduction to gang life. He was a member of the Rollin 20 Crips chapter, although he said that he wasn't really a member and only a friend to some official members. Either way, he did land himself in prison for cocaine possession before finishing high school. He would establish his music career shortly after, but his troubles with the law continued to haunt him throughout his life. He has claimed that he was a professional pimp in 2003 and 2004, something that contributed to his marital problems at the time, no doubt.
5 Martha's A Little More Vanilla
Even though Martha has had her share of legal problems, she isn't your standard repeat offender. She clearly made a mistake, mainly to avoid losing money, but seems to have made the best of a bad situation. When she got out of prison, she re-established herself as a successful businesswoman and quickly rose back to her throne. Martha came from modest means, born into a middle-class family with five siblings. Her mother instilled in her a hard-working ethic and taught her how to cook and sew. She modelled part time when she was in college to make some extra money. She even modelled for Chanel back in the late '50s and early '60s. She's a woman who has worn many hats, that's for sure.
4 They Throw One Heck Of A Dinner Party
What sets Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party apart from the rest of the cooking shows on TV these days? Well, quite a few things. For one, they've managed to secure the greatest and most diverse guest lists in cooking show history. Season 1 featured Seth Rogan, Ashley Graham, Bella Thorne, and 50 Cent. They dress up, they laugh, they cook, they play — it's a whole lot of fun. Not to mention, with their all-star guests, things get really silly, really quickly. The recipes are still up to Martha Stewart standards, so they haven't taken a total pass on the good eats. But what this show brings to the table is more than a good meal. You get a good dose of humour, a brush-up on current events, and you get to experience first-hand one of the greatest unconventional friendships blossom.
3 A Great Team
Snoop and Martha have proven they are a match made in heaven. Unconventional and totally unexpected, but those are often the pairings that are the best suited! They do have quite a bit in common, which isn't obvious on the surface. Both have a penchant for the finer things in life — fine dining, nice cars, luxury vacations, and large homes. And both are super silly and have a great senses of humour. When you're in the limelight, you need to learn pretty quickly how to adapt to scrutiny. The media, fans, and enemies will do their best to attack your weak points, so the ability to not take life too seriously is key. And let's not forget, they've both done time. We're sure this dynamic duo will continue to enjoy success with their new show.
Before the debut of their new show, if you asked me to name two celebrities that you would never imagine would pair up, it would probably be Martha Stewart and Snoop. And look at these two now. They are literally hanging out together, letting loose in their pyjamas while cooking and interviewing funny A-listers. They were both once convicted felons and now they're at the top of the world, raking in the ratings and the cash. At ages 46 and 76, these two are making a pretty good income to add to their fortunes. Might as well keep busy, right? What else will they do with their free time?
1 So Who's The Richer One?
So, we can't help but wonder, between the two, who has the biggest net worth? They are both super successful for different reasons, but also lost a lot of money over the years. For Martha, her downfall was when she was incarcerated. Snoop has probably spent a lot of money on the hard, fast life — living in clubs and spending money was a hobby of his for years. Despite all of this, Martha beats Snoop. Her businesswoman tactics have paid off, awarding her a net worth of close to $700 million! Snoop isn't doing so badly, either. He has an estimated net worth of close to $150 million. Still something to write home about!
