By now we’ve all heard about #PattiPies and how quick they flew off the shelves. It seems another R&B Diva took notes and is now ready to claim her prize in the celebrity food contest. Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin has announced that she is coming out with her own line of foods.
The first thing we noticed when watching the video of the Detroit morning news anchor interviewing Franklin, it starts out with a simple question asking Aretha Franklin if she’s had any of Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pie. Franklin answered, “No I haven’t but Miss Patti’s going to have to move that pie to the side [laughs]”.
LaBelle, who came out with her own desserts last Fall, has received rave reviews as her pies continue to sell out at Walmart retailers. Aretha Franklin says she plans to come out with her own chili, gumbo, and baked chicken with dressing.
The Queen of Soul had better come out with this line tomorrow if she plans to compete with the Creole Lady Marmalade. Patti LaBelle already has her own line of marinade sauce available for purchase and rumor has it she’s releasing a shrimp & lobster mac-n-cheese at Walmart really soon.
Check out this video of what happened the last time these two met. It’s all #LoveAndRnB!
