After learning the news that Patti LaBelle was filming a cooking special with James Wright Chanel, the man who made her sweet potato pies go viral, we’ve been impatiently waiting to see the pair in action on-screen.

Well now we’ve got the first clip, and it seems their chemistry is even more charming and hilarious than we imagined. Seriously, just try to keep it together while watching Chanel’s reaction to taking the first bite of a scratch-made Patti pie (the legendary singer herself cannot even stay composed).

Check out the video above and find out what LaBelle meant when she described Chanel as a “larger than life person,” then catch the full episode on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 8:30 E.T. on the Cooking Channel.

And if you still haven’t gotten your hands on a #PattiPie, Walmart President & CEO Doug McMillon announced on Instagram that they’re not only receiving new shipments in starting on Tuesday, but that they will be carrying the pie all year round.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
