Lunch Break Video: Patti Labelle surprises hosts of “The Today Show” with slices of her sold out pie
I’m still obsessed with Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pies even though I’ve given up hope of being able to taste one for quite some time.
Ever since James Wright’s classic video took over YouTube, the pies have been almost impossible to come by at Walmart where they are sold exclusively.
Patti claims the pies had ‘already been selling off the shelves’ but admits Wright’s video has been ‘a blessing.’
Good grief, is she kidding?
What Wright did was make the pies a phenomenon and Patti needs to adjust her take on things to recognize that.
Anyway, on Friday LaBelle surprised Willie Geist and Tamron Hall of The Today Show with a few slices of the pie.
It only takes one bite for Willie to burst into song.
