James Wright, the Patti Pies superfan whose sweet potato pie YouTube review went viral, spent Thanksgiving with none other than Patti LaBelle herself and apparently, it was everything and then some. In addition to all of the classic Thanksgiving fixings, including baked mac and cheese, roasted turkey and collard greens, a slew of Patti Pies were on deck. The Roots’ Questlove was also in attendance and snapped a selfie with James for IG.
Although the invitation was extended after Patti told a TMZ cameraman that her pie selling success was all her doing, the two had a wonderful time breaking bread and even made time for a sing off!
