Despite James Wright generating millions of views for his insanely hilarious viral video touting Patti Labelle’s sweet potato pies, the 71-year-old soul legend previously stated the success of the Walmart-exclusive pies had nothing to do with Wright. “I did it myself,” she told TMZ. It seems, Patti has finally seen the light, or at least read the scathing messages criticizing her.

LaBelle tells Good Morning Philadelphia that she certainly owes James some credit. In fact, she revealed she’s spending time with him and even cooking Thanksgiving dinner for him over at her crib. Lucky guy.

I’m glad, Patti has acknowledged the hilarious online sensation. Everyone has. He’s been popping up everywhere doing interviews on the media circuit. Gotta strike while the iron is hot, right? Check out Patti’s interview below, and Wright’s original pie review if you haven’t already seen it.

Another celebrity has married his longtime partner.

Nathan Lane and producer-playwright Devlin Elliott wed earlier this week. People confirms the couple of 18 years married in a small ceremony at City Hall on Tuesday.

In addition to tying the knot, the two recently collaborated together professionally. They worked on a children’s book titled Naughty Mabel, based on their pet French bulldog.

Lane can next be seen in American Crime Story playing OJ Simpson’s lawyer, F. Lee Bailey.

Congrats to the happy couple.


Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pies are selling like hot cakes over at Walmart. The retailer is reportedly scrambling to restock shelves with the 71-year-old diva’s deserts. The pies which were sold exclusively at Walmart sold at “a rate of one per second during the 72 hour period from Thursday through Saturday,” they report.

Why the madness surrounding her tasty treats? No doubt a huge part is due to James Wright. He posted a hilarious talk-singing review of the pies on his Facebook that has generated nearly 10 million views. Ever wanted to sing like the “Godmother of Soul?” Wright jokingly claims LaBelle’s pies will help you do that.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, good luck trying to get your lips on the desert. On eBay, they’re on sale for $40- nearly 12 times the original price. Walmart estimates two million pounds of California sweet potatoes are needed to keep up with the demand.

Definitely check out Wright’s review below, if you haven’t already done so. It’s hilarious.

Anthony Padilla and Ian Hecox aka the Smosh Brothers are known for pulling pranks on their guests. Imagine their surprise when Jennifer Lawrence, who’s equally known for being a good sport, appears irritated by their stunts. To be fair, pulling out a pita and referring it to as Peeta from the Hunger Games would annoy anyone. #cheesy

When Jennifer lays down the law (pun intended) and walks out the interview, Hecox is flummoxed and looks like he just shit his pants. J-Law’s co-stars, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, then appear to scold the interviewers about their unprofessional behavior. Shortly after, Jennifer rolls in to let them know that the tables have been reversed and that they were pranked.

All the hijinks were courtesy of Prank It Forward for a superfan named Dylan Miceli-Nelson who is suffering from muscular dystrophy. Check out the clip below. One of the highlights features Lawrence shooting an apple off Lecox’s head. Turns out, she has as good of an aim as her on-screen persona, Katniss.

Once again, People magazine has gone overseas to pick the Sexiest Man Alive. Taking over the mantle from Aussie Chris Hemsworth is English soccer heartthrob David Beckham. The 40-year-old father of four snagged the coveted honor for the publication’s 30th anniversary crown. The announcement was made during the Tuesday night episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

“I mean it’s the best moment of my career, I can’t believe,” David jokingly said on the show. “I would obviously like my parents for bringing me into this world, of course. I would like to thank my hairdresser, my stylist, photoshop.”

Mel Gibson was the glossy’s first recipient back in 1985. Over the years, Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Jackman, Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise and Channing Tatum have graced the annual cover. Richard Gere, Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp have all snagged the title twice.

Beckham is cute and all, but I don’t know if I would call him the sexiest. Would you? Check out all the covers since 2000 below and weigh in on which one is the sexiest. If you’re a fan of the yearly issue, watch Lifetime on Wednesday at 9pm to watch People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2015: 30 Years of Sexy.

On the heels of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announcing Denzel Washington as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award of the 73rd Golden Globes, comes news regarding the awards show’s other annual tradition. Jamie Foxx’s daugther, Corinne Foxx, has been named Miss Golden Globe 2016. The title is traditionally given to the daughter or son of a celebrity, and their responsibility is to assist in handing out the awards on the big night.

“We are delighted to have Corinne Foxx continue the tradition and have her as our 2016 Miss Golden Globe,” said HFPA President Lorenzo Soria. “Like her father, she leads a fine example of following her dreams and we can’t wait to see what she does next.”

Foxx joins a long list of women who’ve held Miss Golden Globe honors including Linda Evans, Melanie Griffith, Anne Archer, Laura Dern and Rumer Willis. Kelsey Grammer’s daugther Greer Grammer scored the honor last year. A few men over the years have also scored the gig. Clark Gable’s son John Clark Gable, Freddie Prinze, Jr. (Freddie Prinze) and A.J. Lamas (Lorenzo Lamas) have been Mr. Golden Globes.

Meet Corinne below. Thankfully, she doesn’t look like her father in drag. Remember Foxx’s In Living Color alter ego, Wanda? No bueno.

“It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life,” Charlie Sheen told Matt Lauer as he revealed his HIV-positive status on The Today Show. The 50-year-old disclosed he first found out four years ago when he experienced a “cluster of headaches” and was waking up in sweat. What he feared might be a brain tumor, turned out to be HIV instead.

Sheen decided to come forward now to stop “shakedowns” by people who he once confided his status to and were now threatening to spill the beans. He claims he’s already paid out upwards of $10 million to keep the illness a secret.

The former Two And A Half Men star revealed he takes four pills every day, and his doctor said the main battle facing the actor is not related to HIV, but relapsing into substance abuse problems or entering into depression related to his diagnosis.

Watch his entire interview with Matt Lauer below.

Ariana Grande goes super old school to promote her debut celebrity fragrance, Ari. The 22-year-old singer gets in the back seat of a cab with her adorable pup Toulouse. Even though it’s clear Audrey Hepburn is the inspiration, Ariana disappointingly keeps her signature high pony instead of fully committing and rocking Hepburn’s iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s updo. Girl, it’s time to let it go 😉

Check out below the two-minute long commercial which pretty much acts as a promo for her latest single “Focus” as well. The “Problem 2.0″ sounding single serves as the soundtrack. If you missed Ariana smelling some buff men on Ellen, be sure to give that a watch also.
