This story goes under the strange pandemic bedfellows category.
After 78 year-old Martha Stewart posted a sexy selfie in her pool that went viral (and she did look hot), former late night host and author Chelsea Handler responded with her own poolside selfie as an homage to Stewart, which she captioned, "I’m here to take @marthastewart48’s swimming lesson.” She added, "If I look this good at 78 I better still have a pool to show myself off in."
Martha quickly responded with, "Dear Chelsea, I’m so happy that you like my post well enough to emulate it. I do think my pool is a little bit prettier than yours and that my facial expression is a little bit more relaxed. Nevertheless, you are a beautiful girl and F**KING too young to be emulating me.”
Chelsea posted a few more poolside photos of herself in a marijuana festooned bikini on a float, and one with her smoking a joint.
The two continued to correspond and now, Martha relayed: "I just took up Chelsea Handler's challenge to smoke a joint with her. I told her I haven't smoked a joint since the 1960s. So for me to smoke a joint is a really big deal. We haven't done it yet ... it has to be together, sometime in the future."
Will Chelsea and Martha be the new Harold & Kumar or Cheech & Chong? And what will they eat?
