Rapper Snoop Dogg’s quirky new cooking and chat show with lifestyle queen Martha Stewart will return to TV next month. “Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” was a big hit when it launched on VH1 last year, and the odd couple will be serving up more meals for special guests on season two. Kathy Griffin, Mike Epps, and sushi chef Abe Hiroki will feature in the first episode of the new season, which will debut on February 13. This season’s guests will also include 50 Cent, Ashlee Simpson, Evan Ross, Fat Joe, and R&B star-turned-top chef Kelis.
Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s 2011 Bugatti Veyron failed to sell at auction held recently in Arizona. The sportscar was expected to hit a reserve price of $2.3 million, but bidding at the Barrett-Jackson car auction in Scottsdale stalled at $1.9 million. Mayweather’s pal Justin Bieber had more luck at the sale – the pop star sold his Ferrari 458 for $434,500. The “Sorry” singer sweetened the deal by offering up concert tickets and backstage passes to the buyer.
Singer and reality TV star Teairra Mari’s battery case has reportedly been dropped after her accuser refused to testify. The “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” regular, who once had a deal with Jay Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records, was facing charges of misdemeanor battery, theft and vandalism. She was hit with the charges in 2015 after she allegedly fought an Uber driver during an altercation about a cell phone charger in July, 2015. He performed a citizen’s arrest and called the police when she refused to leave his car. Mari, who denied the incident, was also reportedly facing arrest last year, after she failed to appear in court in June. However, a judge has since dismissed the case following the driver’s refusal to testify.
