We just got word of an amazing new show coming later this fall. It’s everything America needs right now. It brings together people from all walks of life, backgrounds, interests, and one uniting factor: dinner. What’s the show?
drum roll, please…
That’s right, Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party.
In an August article announcing the show, VH-1 explains:
“You know that game where you come up with all the people you’d invite to your dream dinner? It’s about to come to life on VH1. This fall, we’ll be bringing you Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party — as in, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg— and they’re asking some of their A-list pals to come along for the ride.
Each week, Snoop and Martha will invite celebrity friends over for a half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation, and fun where nothing is off limits. “At our dinner party, we will exemplify America’s fascination with food, entertaining and celebrity. ’Martha & Snoop’s Dinner Party’ will redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different and very funny way, Stewart explains. “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!” Snoop adds.”
We can’t either.
I’m not one to write about reality TV, much less watch it, but this show seems to unique to ignore. Take two public figures who, from a spectators view, appear to have nothing in common but their popularity, add everyone’s common denominator of dinner, throw in a few guests and see what happens.
Honestly, America, if Martha Stewart and Snoop can share a meal, certainly Democrats and Republicans can find some common ground…or at least try.
