I watched this season’s final episode of Sweetie Pie’s.
This reality show is probably one of the worst on television. If anyone wanted to characterize the African-American family as totally dysfunctional, they could cite this show as evidence. “Miss Robbie”, Robbie Montgomery was a former backup singer in the Ikettes, Ike and Tina Turner’s band. After a collapsed lung, she opened up a soul food restaurant in St. Louis. The restaurant is wildly popular and she’s opened up two more since then. Sweetie Pie’s is named after Miss Robbie’s deceased son, Andre, who was known as “Sweetie Pie.” The restaurant is REALLY good. Miss Robbie is considering writing a cookbook, which BSP would at least review.
Miss Robbie’s business partner, her son Tim is a felon. He was convicted of burglary. Miss Robbie often hires felons, with the goal of providing them a means of making a living. It’s admirable. But her family is a mess. The end of the episode is with one of her kids talking to the mother of his child, Jenae. The woman is of a class entirely different than Miss Robbie’s son. While annoying as hell, she is eloquent, educated and…completely out of place with this dude. Now I haven’t seen this show before. I suspect she’s digging for gold. This beautiful, smart, well-spoken woman had a kid by this…dumbass? She’s supposed to marry him? Are you kidding me?
Now BSP isn’t broke by any stretch. If we were, we’d post more often. But this chick wouldn’t give us the time of day and she’s crushing with this dude who is barely literate? Because he wanted to take her on helicopter rides? Either she’s has no common sense or….well, we found the possible reason for her not being a gold digger. How does this stuff happen?
