Patti LaBelle is finally giving credit where credit is due after enjoying a boom in her sweet potato pie sales.
James Wright set off a lucrative trend among sweet potato pie aficionados when he turned Patti after biting into one of her baked goods. His hilarious review instantly went viral and sent thousands of people running to Wal-Mart stores everywhere, sending pies flying off of the shelves.
The video ultimately meant big bucks for Patti and Wal-Mart, but she took most of the credit and all James got was a phone call! Talk about shade.
After a few days of careful consideration, though, the diva has had a change of heart. “You give love to people who give you love,” Patti told Philadelphia’s FOX 29 today.
“My new friend James Wright did this fierce video, and it took the pie over the top. People were losing their minds,” she continued. “And you know, I didn’t expect a viral video.”
Patti’s even so grateful to James that she is having him over to spend some time with her this week.
“He’s having Thanksgiving with Miss Patti, and we’re going out tomorrow,” she shared.
Everyone knows that Patti can cook, so we expect that James will have plenty to sing about on Turkey Day. Here’s hoping we all get another video out of the deal!
