Martha Stewart Picks Sean 'Diddy' Combs as TV Show Guest

Aug 18, 2005 | 8:08am EDT

Lifestyle guru Martha Stewart has personally selected one of the first guests to appear on her upcoming TV show: rap mogul Sean 'Diddy' Combs.

Stewart, who recently spent time in prison after being convicted last year of lying to federal agents about a stock sale, is excitedly preparing for the Sept. 12 launch of Martha, which will be a how-to show sprinkled with entertainment.

Since emerging from behind bars in March, Stewart went straight to one of her target guests to tell him she wanted to share air time with him.

Combs says, "When she got her freedom, she contacted me and told me that they had a nickname for her - 'M. Diddy.' And it was comforting to her and she thought it was funny.

"[She] also [said] that she wanted me to be one of the first guests on her show."
