Martha Stewart Answers the Internet's Questions on Sex, Tacos and Truffle Oil
The domestic goddess talked about her feud with Gwyneth and her friendship with Snoop Dogg
Martha Stewart would like to be closer friends with Snoop Dogg.
That’s just one of the tidbits fans learned on Thursday, when the domestic diva and TV personality stopped by Reddit for its "Ask Me Anything" series. Stewart bravely tackled topics such as sex advice, her time in jail, tacos, tattoos and her supposed feud with Gwyneth Paltrow (spoiler: there isn’t one!).
Stewart, 72, was promoting her two TV shows, Martha Stewart s Cooking School and Martha Bakes, which return to PBS in April.
Here’s what we learned about her.
1. She changes her bed sheets every day.
“Yes. It s a luxury.”
2. When it comes to sex, cleanliness is key.
“Always take a bath before and after,” Stewart said. When one commenter suggested getting dirty in the tub, she responded: “That’s good too, and don’t forget to brush your teeth.”
3. She really is friends with Snoop Dogg.
“I wish I were closer friends with Snoop Dogg,” she said, extending an offer for the rapper to join the discussion. Sadly, he did not show up.
4. She isn’t sure whether she had a jailhouse name or not.
“I think I did, but I can’t remember,” she said on whether she had a nickname during her 2004 prison stint. “I don’t think about the past.”
5. She has never bought a cookie in her life.
One of Stewart s former neighbors asked if the cookies that Stewart handed out on Halloween were homemade. “Yes, every single cookie was homemade,” Stewart said, adding, “I don t think I ve ever bought cookies in my life.”
6. Her favorite parody was done by Saturday Night Live.
“There have been many. None of which are very accurate or flattering. But Ana Gasteyer on SNL did a good job.” Stewart also has a positive opinion of the episode of South Park in which she appeared: “I thought it was really cute!”
7. She’s a fan of Pharrell.
“Pharrell Williams. He’s so cute,” she said of the “Happy” singer. “I’ve actually seen him in person and adore his good humor.”
8. A single taco does not fill her up, and she does not believe in snacks.
“I was at a really good Mexican restaurant yesterday, and I ate one whole taco,” she said. “I was still hungry.”
While many of us would grab a snack after such an unsatisfying meal, Stewart has a different opinion. “I never serve snacks at parties. It’s either hors devours [sic] or a meal,” Stewart said. She then clarified the difference. “Hors devours [sic] are prepared foods one would serve with meals or wine. Snacks are something you get out of a bag or a box.”
9. She hates truffle oil.
Stewart said, “I think truffle oil is one of the few ingredients that doesn t belong in anyone s kitchen. It is ruinous of most recipes.”
10. She paints the soles of her Christian Louboutin shoes.
Stewart doesn t like the shoes’ trademark red sole. She wrote of her fashion move, “One of my rules is not to be a slave to fashion.”
11. She is not in a feud with Gwyneth Paltrow.
“I have never said Gwyneth is a bad homemaker,” she pointed out. “In fact, I’ve never been invited to her home, so how would I know?”
