Aretha Franklin To Launch Food Line / Says Patti’s Should ‘Move To the Side’

Published: Friday 29th Jan 2016 by Rashad

Well, isn’t this a ‘Got 2 B Real’ skit in the making?

‘Queen of Soul’ Aretha Franklin is looking to become the ‘Queen of Soul Food,’ recent reports indicate, as – like rumored rival Patti Labelle – the legendary R&B diva is flexing her talents on the stage and in the kitchen with a line of food products.  Unlike Labelle, Rere is looking to step out of the dessert aisle to see her line feature gumbo, chili, chicken and dressing, and more.

Talking with news reporters from her hometown of Detroit, Franklin details her newest business venture and, as always, reminds fans that her reign also extends to realms of shade.  Get into it below:

    Man, all this material, really going to miss the show.

    So happy “Ratchet white girls” and the legends panel will hold the fort in the meantime.

      The Legends Panel is ending soon too! This is he last season. It’s tragic, God knows TLP is the only reason why I have a YouTube account. Idk what I’ll do once the show ends.

      Have you seen the new episode of Legend Panel? Best on yet, he called that girl Tomato! Lol
      Got 2 B Real had just a high level of cleverness, it will never be matched. But I love the other shows as well.

        LMAOOO you know I did! What do you think Beyoncé is up to? She made a complete 180 and I just think something about it is off. & I’m really disappointed that CiCi and Chris are icons. I GUESS I can see how CB could be an icon, but CiCi? ?

      • King Mark111 /.\ January 29, 2016

        Beyonce is up to something, remember Kerri saying there’s only one way to get on the panel? Ci and Chris icons? I guess, sure if you count the 2000’s success, but lately? “I don’t see it” -Prince.

    Aretha thinks she is Jesus’ wife….I mean with all due respect to my elders but Ms. Franklin, your casket is waiting!

    Got 2 Be Real… They will be back! Trust it may be a year from now but there is too much that goes on for them to not revisit! (Atleast I hope so)

  9. Gee January 29, 2016

    Aretha is the queen master of being shady.

  10. Mr. RCW January 29, 2016
