Patti LaBelle and famous fan James Wright to star in cooking special

Patti! Patti! PATTI!!!

Patti LaBelle and her hilariously famous fan James Wright are making magic happen in the kitchen.

Wright's hysterical video sent LaBelle's pies flying off the shelves right before Thanksgiving. Here at the AJC we managed to get our hands on one (and by "we" I mean my colleague Shelia Poole somehow snagged one.)

My AJC colleague managed to snag a Patti LaBelle pie. As an investigative journalist I decided it was my duty to try it.

I wish I could sing. If I could I would have broken into song. YUM.


Tune in at 8:30 p.m. Dec. 16 on the Cooking Channel to see LaBelle and Wright reunite and rhapsodize over her cooking!
