EXCLUSIVE: Watch the Hilarious First Clip from Patti LaBelle’s Cooking Special with Her Famous Pie Fan
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.
