Patti LaBelle and the guy James Wright (Youtube sensation) who was the culprit behind making the "Patti Pies" famous are hooking up for a Christmas Special. That's right, the two will be cooking pies, spreading holiday cheer in an upcoming Cooking Channel episode.
This news comes after LaBelle invited Wright to her home for Thanksgiving, where the two sang and LaBelle showered Wright with gifts, including a Louis Vuitton bag. In an interview with People, Patti said, “It’s one of those blessed stories,” Patti told People. “For his birthday, which is Thanksgiving, we were at my home. I invited him to dinner before I even met him.”
Patti said, “He’s such a larger than life person himself; he’s like my new son. It’s just a blessing when people come into your life like this, and you’re not expecting anything.”
The special is set to air on December 16 at 8:30 ET on the Cooking Channel.
