EP32: The Plight of Patti’s Pies
Hey ya’ll! Shells has been busy trying to get on the Steve Harvey show, unsuccessfully and Irene has been chillin’ for the most part. Neither of us can believe that it’s already time for Thanksgiving…but it is.
This week in Ellen Awesomeness, Portia stopped by to help clarify which one is “the short one” in their relationship, and Diane Keaton’s visit made it evident that she is a bonafide trip. But our favorite moment this week was going down memory lane with Jeannie…and then Ellen’s kindness strikes again!
Around the water cooler, we talk about the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris, the chaos and confusion surrounding Syria and their refugees, the less than shocking news of Charlie Sheen‘s HIV announcement, a glaring omission on Billboards Best Rappers list, and the trouble in the saying “Everything Happens for a Reason“.
And like many, we had to spend some time talking about the mind blowing phenomenon that was James Wright Chanel‘s YouTube video on Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pie. (We tried to get James on the show… but apparently, he’s a little busy given recent events….BUT, we’d still love to have you on James!) The volume of sales, the social media hype, a little psychology of sales, and the underlying example of the power of the black dollar…we talk about it all.
Wrapping up- In Irene’s Beats this week, is a hit from an artist that SHOULD have been on Billboard’s list of to top rappers. And Jeannie’s story (from unemployed to Ellen) is this week’s beautiful story to inspire all of us.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, ya’ll. We are thankful for each of you…and each other *insert kissey face*
