Despite some early stumbles, the OWN Network has slowly been developing some franchise shows with “Oprah’s Next Chapter” “Lifeclass” and Iyanla Vanzant’s upcoming “Iyanla: Fix My Life”, an all but guaranteed hit. But one of the network’s early breakout shows was the reality series “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” starring St. Louis restaurant owner Robbie Montgomery. She owns the “Sweetie Pie’s” soul food restaurant of the title. The 70-something former Ikette is an unlikely reality star, but she’s a star nonetheless. The trials and tribulations of her various family members including her only child Tim, his wife Janae, her nephew Charles and the varying personalities that make up the show has proven to be a winning formula for OWN.
