Things must be really desperate at the Oprah Winfrey Network. In a last ditch effort to get viewers, OWN has been forced to create a black show for the network (and NO The Gayle King Show and the The Best of the Gayle King Show don't count). I'm refering to their new reality show Sweetie Pie's. I guess that reality show with The Judds wasn't quite making it.
The focus of the show is the legendary St. Louis soul food restaurant started by Robbie Montgomery, a former back up singer for Ike and Tina Turner, who founded and still runs the restaurant with her family; it'll focus on her joy and struggles running her establishment, and dealing with her family as well.
The show preimieres Saturday, October 15th at 9/8c.
