MTV Cribs is back and better than ever before, treating viewers to an exclusive look inside Martha Stewart’s house (and sprawling farm!) on the second episode of its 18th season, which premiered earlier this month.
The show begins with Stewart telling a member of the film crew, “a word of warning: don’t hit anything,” given the many porcelain dishes hanging on her walls. She then proceeds to give a tour of numerous sites on the property, including the main house (deemed the “Winter House”), the tenant house, a personal gym, a vegetable greenhouse (where her gardener, Ryan McCallister, makes an appearance!), and a horse stable. Outside, the lifestyle maven divulges that her favorite agricultural vehicle is a Polaris Ranger (which certainly comes in handy on a 157-acre plot of land!).
In the Winter House, guests are welcomed by 14 blue canaries in the porch room, which is filled with lush plants that were grown onsite. There’s even a cappuccino center and restaurant-style cooking hub where “so many recipes have been developed” and photographed over the years, Stewart notes.
Naturally, Stewart’s dogs Bete Noire and Creme Brûlée also make an appearance on Cribs, running around the farm—mainly, the horse stable. One of the many ponies here is “the same kind of pony the Queen of England rides,” Stewart claims.
She also mentions one time her friend and former co-star, Snoop Dogg, paid her a visit, and playfully accused her of “hiding” her mansion from him, given the many (seven, to be exact!) houses on the property.
Next, we’re taken into Stewart’s personal photo archive, which includes photographs of her posing with the likes of Muhammad Ali, Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, and Judge Judy. Stewart mentions that she was asked to decorate the White House for Christmas during the Clinton administration, and would “love to do it for the Bidens” as well.
Coming across one of her many pools, Stewart recalls that after she posted her now-viral pool selfie last summer, everyone kept asking, “which pool did you take that selfie in?” She jokes that while it wasn’t the pool she’s standing in front of, she might just “take a selfie in this pool [too] and share it on social media.”
The final stop on the tour is the Tenant House, where Stewart’s daughter, Alexis, and her two children stay. Here, the dining room—which is flanked by a bevy of wicker chairs—is set for a dinner party that Alexis hosted later that day. Stewart adds that “a lot of the plants from the greenhouses come in here, so that it kind of brightens up the place and makes it pretty.” A frequent guest in this home happens to be Shonda Rimes, who “loves staying here,” Stewart enthuses.
