 “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” the family docu-series on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will premiere ten all-new episodes beginning Saturday, March 31 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” follows former Ikette Miss Robbie Montgomery and her dynamic family at their well-known soul food restaurant Sweetie Pie’s. Miss Robbie is a handful, but in a good way. She is the straight talking, no nonsense founder of the St. Louis based landmark that is at the heart of OWN’s popular series.

The hour-long series premiered last October, generating positive response among viewers with its series debut.

“We are truly honored to be back with all-new episodes,” said Robbie Montgomery. “Last season was a roller-coaster ride, but we survived it together. This season, viewers can expect more of our family drama, ups and downs, and definitely a lot more loving soul food.”

In the spring premiere of “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s,” Miss Robbie and her family prepare to welcome home baby T.J. after a five-month stay in the hospital. Jenae’s early labor and emergency c-section that brought T.J. into the world 13 weeks early has culminated in an emotional release day filled with tears of joy. To help ease the transition, Tim and Jenae move the whole family into Miss Robbie’s home. Tim is initially reluctant about working with his mother all day and living under her roof all night, but he quickly changes his tune when he realizes Grandma Robbie could be a great live-in babysitter. Miss Robbie, however, has no plans to make the temporary living situation permanent.

“Me living with my son – that’s a no, no,” she quips. “I stopped having babies because I’m not raising them.”

Meanwhile, the mother-son conflict is amplified as the pair butt heads over the plans for their new restaurant, Sweetie Pie’s – The Upper Crust. As the two try to work together to oversee the construction of the third restaurant it becomes apparent who wants to spend freely and who wants to hold the purse strings. While Tim is clearly an effective manager and business partner, above all he is a devoted son.

“Sometimes people’s dreams pass when they pass and it doesn’t have to be that way,” says Tim Norman. “I’m going to do everything possible to keep my Mom’s dream alive.”

About “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s”

The hour-long series follows Miss Robbie Montgomery, a former Ikette and backup singer for the duo soul sensation ‘The Ike & Tina Turner Review’. While on tour with the band, Montgomery spent much of her time cooking when not on stage performing. After a collapsed lung abruptly ended her singing career, Montgomery took her mother’s age-old soul food recipes and opened the restaurant known as Sweetie Pie’s.

Currently, with the help of her close-knit and gregarious family, the 71-year-old Montgomery runs two successful restaurants and is in the process of building a third. “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” follows the loud, loving and still very musical Montgomery family as they struggle with the demands of expanding their family-owned business and creating a legacy to pass on to future generations, one soulful dish at a time. The cast consists of Miss Robbie, founder of Sweetie Pie’s; her son and business partner Tim; his fiancé Jenae and their newborn son TJ; and Miss Robbie’s wisecracking nephew, Lil’ Charles as well as the colorful staff of the St. Louis based eatery.

Black Teenager Attacked by Corrections Deputy in Florida, Investigation Underway

Published

on

A Florida corrections deputy has been placed on leave after going on the attack against a 17-year-old at a juvenile center … and it’s all on video.

The teenager, Terrance Devon Reed III, was taken to the hospital after the violent altercation with Sarasota County Deputy Neil Pizzo last week. The surveillance footage shows Reed sitting on a bench with his arms tucked in his shirt when Pizzo marches toward him.

As Reed stands up and takes his arms out, the deputy immediately goes for his throat. A struggle ensues before Pizzo throws Reed to the ground, but at no point does the teenager appear to fight back.

Another deputy jumps in to try to wrangle Reed’s feet, and that’s when Pizzo strikes the teen on the back of the head multiple times. Reed’s then cuffed and helped to his feet … but not before suffering abrasions to his head.

The altercation reportedly began after Reed — who was previously arrested and charged with contempt of court, probation violations and cocaine possession — became uncooperative in a police lineup.

That, of course, doesn’t justify the violence by the deputy, and Sheriff Tom Knight says he’s disappointed in what he saw and Pizzo’s failure to de-escalate the situation.

Knight says he placed the deputy on administrative duty while an internal investigation is conducted.

Tamar Braxton Boyfriend Files A Restraining Order Indicating Domestic

Published

on

Tamar Braxton boyfriend is running to court asking for protection against her in what he describes as a domestic violence situation.

The singer’s BF, David Adefeso, filed for a restraining order Tuesday in L.A. seeking to prevent Domestic Violence and he’s asking a judge to grant him one against Tamar. For now, it’s unclear what he’s alleging she might’ve done.

It doesn’t look like the court has approved his request just yet  

At any rate, it’s another sign that things have been volatile lately in her life — especially as it pertains to David. Remember, he’s the one who called 911 not too long ago saying Tamar was threatening to kill herself. He also mentioned her WeTV beef to cops at the time.

Also keep in mind … family sources connected to Tamar have told us they believe she’s changed since getting with him — claiming her mood seems to align with his. We’ve also been told that David has come off as controlling in Tamar’s reality show, and that he’s been quite involved in her business decisions of late.

This continues to be a developing story…..

Bodies of US Couple Found at Bottom of Well in Mexico

The bodies of a missing US couple have been found at the bottom of a well in Mexico.

Ian Hirschsohn, 78 and his 73-year-old wife Kathy Harvey had been missing since August 31, when they were supposed to return home to San Diego from a trip across the border.

Their abandoned car was found in Ensenada, just 90 minutes from the US border, last week.

Investigators then made the grim discovery on Thursday in an unpopulated area just south of the tourist hotspot.

The bodies were recovered over the weekend; San Diego police confirmed their identities, CBS8 reported.

Family members said the couple had been staying at a rented house in El Socorrito, about 200 miles south of the border, a town they frequented over the past 35 years.

Kathy texted her son Robert on August 28 to say they were going to either explore a gold mine or visit a beach; however the family lost contact with them on August 31.

After reporting them missing, the Consulate General in Tijuana finally informed the family the couple’s Toyota Land Cruiser had been found in Ensenada.

“She was really enjoying retirement and had multiple groups of friends,” Robert told the site. “She loved walking and traveling.  She had a huge bucket list of where she wanted to go.”

An investigation is now underway. The cause of deaths has not been revealed, nor has a motive, but investigators suspect foul play.
