Martha Stewart has seen a lot in her lifetime, but it appears there are still plenty of opportunities to leave her speechless.

The iconic homemaker, 82, is not one to mince her words, though during a recent television appearance, she revealed she seemingly met her match.

Speaking with Drew Barrymore on The Drew Barrymore Show on Friday, December 8, as the two talked candidly about dating, the beloved hospitality guru dished on a recent interaction that "knocked" her out of her socks.

As Drew – who herself has been very candid about her dating life – questioned why she found it difficult to meet a man who impressed her, Martha quickly declared: "I got knocked out of my socks last week by somebody," promptly receiving laughter from the live audience.

Alluding to a "very attractive" mystery man, the cookbook author then asked the Charlie's Angels actress why she's not meeting more men out at parties and dinners, and suggested: "You have a lot of friends, and they should be inviting you…" before noting: "They didn't do that for me either, by the way."

"I had to do it myself," she continued, and after Drew inquired about the aforementioned man who knocked her socks off, Martha cheekily said: "It wasn't exactly appropriate."

After more laughter from Drew and the audience, she went on: "But it was good for the night!" before quickly clarifying that "nothing happened."
