Ready for a pie-smackdown? Aretha plans to start a food line


The flour and butter are about to fly!

Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin plans to come out with a food line that will likely include desserts.

So now any alleged beef between Franklin and Patti LaBelle may be settled in the food aisle of your favorite grocery store.

Franklin talked about her food products to Detroit Local 4. She also plans to offer chili, her special gumbo and baked chicken and dressing in a loaf pan. She said she is in talks with a company out of Phoenix about the products.

As you know, Miss Patti came out with a line of desserts that are now sold in Walmart stores and her sweet potato pies were flying off the shelves during the holidays. She got a helping hand from unofficial pitchman James Wright Chanel , who sang his way to becoming a viral sensation and Thanksgiving dinner at LaBelle’s home.

Franklin said she hasn’t had a chance to try LaBelle’s pie (she just introduced cakes, too) , but advises: “Ms. Patti’s gonna have to move that pie to the side.”

Oh, my!

We’re not rushing to judgment until we taste what Franklin has to offer.

Then we’ll find out who gets the “R-E-S-P-E-C-T.”
