    Default Watch Out Patti Pies! Aretha Franklin plans to release her own food products

    Aretha Franklin launching 'Patti Pies' competition - CNN.com

    (CNN)The latest news about Aretha Franklin probably won't do much to quell chatter that she has beef with Patti Labelle.

    The Queen of Soul told Detroit's Channel 4 that she is planning to launch her own food line, which will include desserts. Her contemporary, LaBelle, made headlines over the holiday season after Walmart couldn't keep her Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie on its shelves.

    Franklin said she hadn't tasted LaBelle's dessert, "but Ms. Patti's gonna have to move that pie to the side!"

    The singer said she also plans to offer her own brand of chili, gumbo and baked chicken.
    In 2014 there was talk that the two divas were on less than friendly terms after Franklin appeared to brush by LaBelle as she walked in to perform at the White House. Franklin later said that there was no tension between her and LaBelle.




    But fans have long enjoyed the web series "Got2BReal" which satirizes the relationships between some of black music's biggest stars. In it, Franklin and LaBelle are seen to be antagonistic towards each other, with Franklin frequently referred to as "Hateretha."
    (Warning: The video contains some NSFW language)



    I've always loved um, Hateretha, but she's always been known to be petty and shady when it comes to her musical peers from that era in spite of her numerous accolades and accomplishments as the Queen of Soul. Ive heard she still hates Gladys Knight to this day over some rivalry theyve had since the 60s...She probably didn't even want to do this until she found out about Patti's Sweet Potato Pies selling like hotcakes over the holidays. I never got to taste one because they were always sold out. Any of you had a chance to eat one? All I can say is, "Get money!" to the both of them. They can't go touring on the road forever...

    Patti's pies were all over the news here since Patti lives in Philly. Then some employees from Walmart started posting pics showing her pies all stacked up and marked down for clearance, saying they were not selling until they were reduced.

    Yes, they sold out every where, but did they sell out at full price or only when they were reduced?

    Those Pies started selling out after a YouTube video of a guy named James Wright reviewing them and singing Patti LaBelle songs went viral around the holidays.




    The Pies weren't even selling that well before that. After the video by James, people were buying them buy the basket load and reselling them on eBay and Craigslist. They were sold out all over the DC Area and one ladyfriend of mine said she was planning to drive up to Pennsylvania to find them. It was NOT that serious for me...Patti should thank her lucky stars this guy helped her out...I know she's had him sing at a few of her concerts and had him over for thanksgiving at her house. Due to the success of the Sweet Potato Pies, Patti is coming out with a more extensive dessert line this year.

    One of my Aunts makes her sweet potato pies from scratch during the holidays and was having no parts of the hype and madness. She said she walked by those pies the same way Aretha walked past Patti in the White House, lol...

    Owings Mills is like 45 minutes away from me. Is it worth driving up there for that sweet potato pie?

    And yes, Hateretha was shady as hell for that! She is too damn old to act so petty!

    Her floppy breasts throw enough shade all on their own.
