Exclusive: Miss Robbie Shades Son Tim Over “Sweetie Pie’s” Lawsuit!

By  | 

They may be embroiled in a lawsuit, but they’re still mother and son.

Hearts were broken and tears were shed when news broke that Miss Robbie was suing her son Tim over the wildly successful “Sweetie Pie’s” restaurants. Fans were hoping this wasn’t yet another example of reality TV breaking up a happy family. Luckily, that’s not the case … even though the lawsuit is still full steam ahead.

Tim, who helps his mom run the restaurants, is trying to strike while the iron is hot and open as many locations as he can. But, Miss Robbie, who created the popular eatery, is trying to block her son from doing too much, too soon. Thus, the lawsuit. “We haven’t really moved past it; it’s still happening,” Miss Robbie told HipHollywood during the “Welcome To Sweetie Pie’s” press day, “I can’t stop him from being my son, but I can beat him up about that other stuff.” Tim playfully chimed in saying, “We’re still fussing with each other.”

And even though they’re still “fussing” at each other, the duo is hopeful that they will come to a mutual understanding. “We just got to get on the same page about that other stuff, that’s all that is. I’m hoping we work that out,” Miss Robbie stated.

Yes, we’re hoping the same thing, too! You can see Tim and Miss Robbie navigate their business differences when Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s returns Saturday, November 19th at 9pm/8c on OWN.

    They are both right. I’ve been in business for 30 years and wish I had a family member this driven. As an experienced business owner i know they will work it out because they both have the ingredients for success. Tim has the vision and the drive to go to the next level and Ms. Robbie has the wisdom and the control. They both realize that nothing will separate them and they will work it out. The legal documents are the best way to resolve it that way each will have agreed to follow the contract!

    Tim has to maintain the integrity of Robbie’s brand and he isn’t. I’ve been to both restaurants NoHo and Inglewood several times hoping food would get better. It has not. He needs to stop opening up and focus on the quality of the food. In Inglewood, that food is not going to fly. This ain’t NoHo this the Wood and that nice restaurant will be sitting there with no one but the staff. If he wants success, he better get that food together. Better ask somebody?

    I think Tim lacks management skills. All of last year, his employees have been asking for a raise. Tim refuse to address the subject. One of his employees came out of the resturant and asked me, why didn’t I leave a tip. The Mac n Cheese was luke warm, the cornbread was cold. The peach cobbler was so so. I was very disappointed, after being a fan, from their first show. It seem like the best resturant is the ” Upper Crust”. By the way I gave the girl a tip, since she came at me like she did . Slow your roll Tim. You already got the Sweetie Pies sign hanging on a empty building on ” Beake Street in Memphis.What good is it to have all of these Resturants and the food isn’t good. Bad food will kill a resturant !!!
