Patti LaBelle Superfan to Co-Host Holiday Cooking Special
The video was instrumental in raising sales for LaBelle’s line of pies at Walmart and effectively making Chanel a star in his own right.
In fact, Chanel’s rave review earned him a spot at LaBelle’s table for Thanksgiving, coincidentally also his birthday.
Patti tells People:
He’s such a larger than life person himself; he’s like my new son. It’s just a blessing when people come into your life like this and you’re not expecting anything.
And the feeling is mutual, according to Wright, “When she first called, it was like we’d known each other forever; we talked like we were best friends.”
The duo’s holiday special will air on the Cooking Channel on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 8:30 E.T.
