James Wright’s Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie Review

Postby oldschooldude » Wed Nov 18, 2015 11:53 am



This is the video review that spurred the run on Patti Labelle’s sweet potato pies at Walmart. I've seen Patti LaBelle's cooking shows, but I didn't even know that she sold a sweet-potato pie before now. They say that now many of the Walmarts have sold out of them, and you can hardly find one. The power of social medial is real!

The Today Show's Tamron Hall and Willie Geist were doing a segment on the Patti Pie phenomenon, when they are surprised by Miss Patti walking on set with slices of her sweet potato pie for both of them.

Somehow, this isn't the response I expected from Miss Patti.

She said the pies were already selling off the shelf before James's viral video. Said James was a wonderful singer and a wonderful guy.

Now, this is more like what I expected. Giving him some recognition does not detract from her cooking skills, and, from this point on, it does not matter if their paths don't often cross, because people will have these moments to look back on and feel good about.
