I bet it has something to do with that man pictured above.
According to Variety, tensions are riding high on the set of OWN’s highly successful Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s. While the audience is accustomed to seeing the star of the show, Robbie Montgomery, fuss with her son (and restaurant manager), Tim (that’s the man pictured above), and the rest of the family on a regular basis, they never see what’s happening behind the scenes.
The report says that in October, Tim, the restaurant staff and the production team for Pilgrim Studios allegedly got into a very heated argument. While the details are sketchy, this apparently hasn’t been the first time the sides have been at war. The network sent co-president Erik Logan to the set of the show with security in an attempt to diffuse the situation. Variety reports that OWN believes all the anger from Tim stems from his many stresses as a manager, a father and soon-t0-be husband. So basically, he has the same problems as everyone else but he just chooses to lash out? Oh okay. As someone who’s seen the show and watched Tim lose his cool on everyone, including his mother, for no reason at all, it comes as no surprise they’re having so many issues. Whether or not they decide to air this on Sweetie Pie’s has not yet been determined.
The arguing is coming from all directions. The family is in such disarray that OWN actually offered them therapy from Iyanla Vanzant whose had a breakout show on OWN, Iyanla, Fix My Life. OWN reps did confirm that cameras filmed the sessions but it is ultimately up to the family if they want any of it to hit the airwaves.
Poor Miss Robbie. She’s got one of the few successful shows on OWN and it is being jeopardized by what is likely some foolishness. If her son is indeed a big part of the problem, she needs to make some tough decisions about her son and how he fits into her businesses.
