Marcia Cross, who plays the Martha Stewart-like character Bree Van De Kamp on ABC’s hit “Desperate Housewives,” will be the first guest on the debut episode of the syndicated daytime series “Martha” next Monday.

Former “Saturday Night Live” cast member David Spade, who spoofed Ms. Stewart on “SNL,” will be the guest Tuesday, which is “Martha’s” “Poncho Day,” in honor of the inmate-made garment Ms. Stewart wore when she left the federal prison at the end of her sentence for having lied to federal investigators probing trades of Imclone stock.

Music and fashion mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs is scheduled to teach Ms. Stewart how to rap while she demonstrates gift wrapping on Thursday, Sept. 15.
