We know Martha Stewart for her one-pan pasta, her bread-topped macaroni and cheese, her slab pie, and her... candid (?) wisdom, but she's making headlines today not for a recipe or for an embezzlement scandal, but because she's announced a new cooking show, co-hosted by Snoop Dogg (formerly Snoop Doggy Dogg).

While the two have cooked mashed potatoes and "magic" brownies together in the past (“My homegirl, Martha, and I have a special bond that goes back," said Snoop), this will be a more regular date. And people are excited about it: "Two mammoth forces have converged in the streaked, nebulous swirls of the cosmic heavens above, establishing temporary universal order," wrote Kat Ward for Paper. Something is right in the world.

Variety reported that "Martha & Snoop's Dinner Party" (the working title) will air weekly on VH1, with the duo hosting a dinner party attended by celebrity guests—or, as Snoop called them, "exclusive friends."

This won't be a staged cooking show or a rapid-fire competition, but a mix of the two. Martha told Variety that their dinner parties "will exemplify America's fascination with food, entertaining, and celebrity" and "redesign the traditional food competition shows in a new, different, and very funny way." We're thinking a more for-the-people version of Questlove's now-famous, celebrity-studded food salons. But will the celebrity guests "exclusive friends" have to compete to attend? Will they have to guess who made which dish? Will there be a musical component? Will they all be subjected to a Martha-style roast? (If so, I fear for them.)

Martha Stewart might be a household name in cooking and Snoop in hip-hop, but he's no stranger to the world of food—in 2015, he launched a line of cannabis products called Leafs by Snoop, which includes edibles like chocolate bars and fruit chews—and both are multifaceted, force-to-be-reckoned-with entrepreneurs.

This involves a lot of julienning—perfect fodder for a chop-off. A chop-down? A chop-out? a chopping competition!

Maybe Martha could teach Snoop some trendy DIYs? Good party favors for the dinner party attendees and stylish home décor. In exchange, Snoop might teach this self-proclaimed "maniacal perfectionist" to chill out.
