Her case of COVID comes after enjoying a trip to Lake Como just a week and a half ago.

On a new episode of her iHeartRadio podcast this month, The Martha Stewart Podcast, she and rapper Snoop Dogg spoke about just how much he smokes a day.

‘The question they’re going to ask is whether or not Snoop is smoking,’ she teased in a clip. ‘Can you tell me how many of those special cigarettes you smoke a day do you think?’ 

 The Young, Wild & Free hitmaker replied, ‘It depends. When I’m shooting television, maybe about 15 a day. But when I’m making music, probably about 25 and the thing is when I’m with Martha, she’s the secondhand queen. I make sure she gets all the secondhand smoke.’

Stewart called getting ‘secondhand’ high with her pal ‘fabulous.’

‘I must tell you, it makes me feel really good. And it does not disturb my concentration. In fact, I think it makes it even better and it doesn’t make me tired or any of the things that people say marijuana does to you. It’s fantastic. I think it’s great,’ she gushed.

The unlikely pair first met while sitting next to each other at the Comedy Central roast of Justin Bieber in 2015 where Martha admitted to getting a contact high from Snoop, a story she’s repeated through the years.

'I like his laid-back energy-I like his outspokenness, I like his sense of timing, and I really enjoy to watch him cook,' Martha said

‘She sat next to me, and she stole the show,’ Snoop told NBC at the time. ‘She was the funniest ‘roaster’ that night. In that moment, I knew I wanted to be alongside this lady for the rest of my life.’

They reunited in 2016 for Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party and have since partnered together on multiple campaigns and projects.

‘I like his laid-back energy-I like his outspokenness, I like his sense of timing, and I really enjoy to watch him cook,’ Martha said.

Snoop added: ‘She’s the big sister I never had. Being able to correct me, to teach me, to show me how to be better, to give me something to aspire to be.’
