In case you are wondering if we misprinted the headline, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg are doing a show together. Yes, I wouldn't have ever picked that pairing for a reality show, and I can't help but think that somebody somewhere just won a very lucrative bet. This is what is known about Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg's Reality TV Series on VH1, appropriately named Martha and Snoop's Dinner Party, with its release date and news.
E News reports that VH1 calls it "a half-baked evening of cooking, conversation and fun where nothing is off limits". The show will take the traditional food competition show and do it in "a new, different and very funny way", as quoted from Martha Stewart herself.
In a promotion for the show on ABC's Good Morning America, Stewart said that she "couldn't wait to get Snoop in the kitchen" and "that the show will exemplify the country's fascination with dining, celebrity, and entertainment".
A quote from Snoop Dogg (real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr.) says what you thought it might say in his famous trademark west coast slang: "Our new show is rizzle, dizzle, for shizzle...my homegirl, Martha and I have a special bond that goes back. We're gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can't wait for you to see how we roll together!" By the way, if you haven't seen the clip of Snoop Dogg on Celebrity Family Feud, just check it out here and have a good laugh.
This isn't the first time together for this unexpected duo. Snoop has appeared on Martha Stewart's show at one time. They appeared together on Justin Bieber's Roast on Comedy Central, as well as on ABC's 100,000 Pyramid.
According to Variety, the new series is created and executive produced by Martha Stewart and Kim Miller Olko for Sequential Brands Group, as well as Snoop Dogg and Ted Chung for Merry Jane, and SallyAnn Salsano for 495 Productions.
This is one of those times where reporting on the actual news story is just so strange, like reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger became governor of California or that Donald Trump became president. Just one of those is true, for now.
In fact, I can't help but think of what duo would even be more unlikely for a team up. Feel free to leave some suggestions in the comment section for what odd pairing that you would see on a reality show, and who knows, maybe it will come true.
Martha and Snoop's Dinner Party will appear on VH1 in the fall, but there is no word on a specific release date.
