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.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
