TODAY host Carson Daly recently took a dig at Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart’s Thanksgiving tradition.
Carson Daly opens up on Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart
During Thursday’s edition of the NBC show, Carson crowned Martha the Queen of Thanksgiving after welcoming her and 17 chefs into the studio to share their cooking secrets.
After handing Martha a golden turkey baster, as well as a crown, Carson and his TODAY, co-hosts Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Craig Melvin toasted the 81-year-old. Martha appeared to be loving the attention as she sipped from her glass of champagne.
Craig asked her: “Martha, what is it you enjoy so much about Thanksgiving?”
“Well it’s just a random gathering of friends and family,” she replied as Carson blurted out: “She’s talking about Snoop Dogg!”
As Martha giggled, Carson added: “No, seriously, does Snoop Dogg come to your Thanksgiving?”
“Erm not this year but I’m sure he will want to next year,” Martha responded.
“I bet he brings the herbs!” Carson fired back about Snoop’s love of the drug, as Savannah added: “I bet he brings the house warming gifts!”
Martha and Rapper Snoop have one of the most wholesome, and surprising, celebrity friendships which has blossomed over the years. It is worth noting that there is a 30-year age gap between the pair, the duo hit it off after meeting over a decade ago on the set of Martha’s now-defunct series, The Martha Stewart Show.
In August 2016, the unlikely friends announced their joint cooking show on VH1 which was called Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party. The series premiered in November 2016 and was even nominated for the Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality Competition Program, but lost out to RuPaul.
It has come to light that Martha doesn’t have big Thanksgiving Day plans but next spring, she’ll be commemorating the 40th anniversary of her first book, Entertaining, which was published in 1982. Martha’s best friend Snoop Dogg is certainly on the VIP list.
