Patti Thinks the Video About Her Pies Is Cute But Says 'I Did It Myself'

The soul legend wants you to know she was selling before James Wright.

Published November 20, 2015

Patti LaBelle doesn't do background, OK? TMZ recently caught up with the music legend and asked her about the massive sales of her sweet potato pies. Though everybody and their mama knows about the dessert now because of James Wright's viral video, Patti is proudly taking all the credit.


While the pies are literally sold out at all Walmarts across the nation, Patti says that people knew of the pies before Wright's hilarious video.

When TMZ asked her if she was going to ask James to help officially promote her "Patti Pies" in the future, she said, "I did 'em myself... I was selling out before the guy did his wonderful video, but it's beautiful. Thank God. Isn't that wonderful? Thank you, James."

There goes that classy shade that we all have grown to love from Ms. LaBelle.
