Even a domestic diva deserves a date!

Billionaire entrepreneur Martha Stewart has officially joined the online dating site Match.com, after telling "Today Show" host Matt Lauer that she's ready to get serious about finding a mate.

"I'd like to have breakfast with somebody," Stewart revealed on the morning news show. "I'd like to go to bed with somebody. Sleep with somebody."

While Martha's Match.com profile reveals that she's looking for a "young at heart" guy aged 55 to 70, she also lists a hefty helping of hobbies and interests and her criteria for a soul mate:

"Someone who's intelligent, established, and curious; and who relishes adventure and new experiences… Someone who can teach me new things. A lover of animals, grandchildren, and the outdoors."

Martha's fans can even support her cause by voting online for her profile pic for the site. Two glam shots -- taken by photographer Fadil Berisha for NEW YOU Magazine -- are posted on the Martha Stewart Living Facebook page.

Meanwhile, Martha's not the first celeb to try the online dating world. Here are five more celebs who've tried online dating.

Jenny McCarthy

In 2011, former Playboy model Jenny McCarthy admitted to trying online dating on Match.com following her split from longtime boyfriend Jim Carrey. She told reporters she kept personal data to a minimum and didn't use her real name, saying she "checked the men [she likes] between 35 to 48" years old on the site. At the time the former "Singled Out" hostess told Hollyscoop.com she was looking for a "nice guy" who's not from Los Angeles.

"It's so hard out here [in L.A.]. The guys are like chicks out here," she said. "There's no real guy guys, so maybe importing from somewhere will be smart. Anyone not from L.A. I think."

Fast forward two years later and a still-single Jenny has a new plan of action. She recently told People she's hoping to meet eligible bachelors via her new VH1 show, "The Jenny McCarthy Show."

"I keep telling my producers to book some cute, heterosexual single men," she said.

Chase Crawford

"Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford has some gossip for you: He has kind of, sort of tried online dating. According to the New York Post, the hunky actor has dabbled in online dating by browsing on the Jewish dating site JDate.com. He told UK's Now Magazine, "I have a bunch of different accounts that no one even knows about."

Carrie Ann Inaba

In 2011 the "Dancing With the Stars" judge revealed that she met her former fiancé Jesse Sloan on the online dating site eHarmony. In an interview on "Access Hollywood Live," Carrie Ann dished, "I was dating all these younger guys, and [thought] I had to change it up." And although she didn't post a photo of herself, she did list tidbits like: "'You need to be sexy' [and] 'I love cats.'

"He was the one they sent me, and it just felt familiar," she said. " [Looking at] his picture, I felt like I already knew him."

While Carrie Ann's man proposed to her during a live segment on "Live With Regis and Kelly," the engagement was short lived. The couple split in 2012 and Carrie Ann said, "I have to believe that there is something wonderful out there for me. And I just keep moving forward."

Charlie Sheen

In 2006, rumor had it that Charlie Sheen was a member of online dating site MillionareMatch.com. While Sheen's rep said the rumor was bogus, TMZ reported that a woman claimed to have met the former "Two and a Half men" star online and he called her for date. While that love connection clearly didn't work out, in 2011 Digital Journal reported that the Twitter-happy star was offered a deal to endorse an online dating site. The catch: He'd have to move to Canada.

Joan Rivers

At age 72, "Fashion Police" star Joan Rivers also tried to find her match on Match. According to a 2006 article by the Associated Press, the funny lady said of her quest to find a soul mate between the ages of 65 and 75: "We were hoping to meet Mr. Right. We didn't even get a wink." And always the comedian, Joan had a smart answer for the profile question about kids: "Not right now, but I got two eggs in the refrigerator."
