Anyone still watching "Welcome to Sweetie Pies" on OWN?

It's really has become a boring show. I don't even watch when it comes on anymore, I DVR it to watch the next day or so. All this fussing and arguing with her son and then her son with his so-called fiancee is like watching a merry-go-round of bullshit. Seems the show is struggling with topics or "situations" that are interesting enough to film. Maybe this season should be its last. When it first came on, I felt it was really fun to watch, but now that Miss Robbie has her new dream restaurant open, what was supposed to had been the "Ruth's Chris" of her franchise restaurants is actually just a 3rd location with the same thing she serves in at her other two restaurants and not only that, she's working more harder than ever where she had expected to only come in one or two days a week and just manage...but her staff there aren't up to par and many times Miss Robbie end's up having to help serve to get their service line down (and from outside). disbelief

You're right, once she got the third restaurant ...there's really no story line...it is boring...they tried to bring in other family members , but it's just not working....

And you're right...her workers are average at best and she has to take over and it's kind of sad to see...at her age,she shouldn't be so hands on

Saw my first and last episode last night. I just don't "get" reality television. It was almost like they were trying to invent drama.

No there sure isn't a storyline at all. That's why I said this season needs to be the last. And yes her age is a major factor, she shouldn't be working that hard unless she plans on working herself in the grave. And her son, it's like I can understand how he feels sometimes, but most of the time it seems like he needs a lot of growing up to do.

Honestly I would suggest you only watching the first season, because this season isn't this great and the last season is when things started getting boring and redundant.

Oh no I won't be catching any of it. But I am curious: what did her son go to jail for and why is he so smug?

lol Oh okay. I think it was for drugs. I can't remember exactly because he didn't reveal it until last season. I think he's "smug" because he wants to feel like a man and be confident in what he does, but he doesn't exactly know what he's good at yet. That's why he's always going back and forth with this music thing he's doing (that he should quit because he definitely isn't good at it), then he mentioned last night that he used to want to be an actor (wow), and now he's at the restaurant busting his ass and every one else's like he's a jail warden. lol He feels trapped because he feels like he was sort of "forced" into working at the restaurant to help his mom and now he's in this position where he has to be at the restaurant all the time and manage it. She's saying that she's leaving this legacy to Tim and his children but she isn't sure that he even wants it. So I dunno. I think Tim has a real issue with balancing things out.

My question is, how much does he really pay himself because how are the rest of the workers without cars and stuff, yet he's driving a Cadillac Escalade and his fiancee is driving a Porsche? confuse

spit Honestly I think the issues between him and his "so-called" fiancee majorly brings the show down. He proposed to her near the end of Season 1 before she gave birth to their baby, but I don't think he's ready for marriage. Last season after she had the baby and was going to plan this big ass elaborate wedding, he was trying to avoid discussing it or participating in it at all costs. lol Dude, if you wasn't ready, then why did you ask? Now in this current season they are always at odds because she wants to go out and be wined and dined like she used to before the baby and he forever stays busy at the restaurant. Sometimes I think he purposely stays at the restaurant and claims he's busy just to avoid her. I also find it interesting how in the opening credits that she's no longer introduced as "Jenae: Tim's fiancee"...instead she's introduced as "Jenae: TJ's mom". I was like, wow, in reality are they actually broken up? lol

Oh my mistake, he didn't go to prison for drugs, it was armed robbery.

Why do you call it trash? No violence, an old woman trying to work hard and create al egacy for her family--what's so bad about that?

Tim I actually am not vibing with at all: I think he is disrepectful to his mother and the the legacy she is trying to create for him and future generations. She's working this hard into her seventies so that he won't have to. I also think he is too easily distracted by glitter, gold, and fleeting recognition, which is why he's all caught up in trying to be a rap star. I think it's a dead end that will have no redeeming rewards in the end- just some shows, a few thousand bucks from a few gigs, and that's pretty much it.

I know you don't like Janelle lol , but I actually think he should thank his lucky stars that he has someone that cute, smart, and grounded with a solid sense of family and values. With all his exposure from his mother's business and now this shoe, I'm sure some sexy, hot lil girl could come twaddling up in there and tickle his fancy more than Janelle's straight laced self, but to paraphrase Chris Rock, Hot Sexy can't cook. She also is not going to mop your restaurant floors nor balance cash register receipts at closing, or jump in the kitchent to help stir the macaroni & cheese when you have lines of customers waiting. Hot Sexy wants you to buy her expensive purses, get her into the VIP section of the club, and eat out every night. I think Tim has a good woman with good intention who can be an asset to him in building a solid, stable life, and I hope he doesn't lose her.

Girl, it is not that bad. lol

His mother has had her two restuarnts going on for a few decades. As a single mom trying to balance, while did well with her business, she lost her sons to the streets -they weren't in WASP surburbia, they stayed amongst their own people, and things happe- every mother can't raise the perfect Leave it to Beaver or Cosby Show kids no matter how hard the try.

One son passed on, and the younger one (Tim) acted out, eventually being jailed from drug possession/ dealing/ who the hell knows what as a teenager. He came out as an adult with a pretty sucessful mother and has not wanted for anything really, even while he was jailed. I imagine that counts for the smugness. I don't see much repsect for how his mom has busted her ass through the years to carry not only him, but for their entire family plus jobs for a gaggle of people in their community. In a perfect world, one would think that would something to be proud of and have gratitude for. But...he has it in his mind that he can somehow turn the world on its ear once he rocks the mike, so...

As for the cars, I didn't realize Janelle had a Porsche, but when you're the son of someone that owns 3 restaurants and you're hitting up all the main food festivals where you live each year, I

imagine they can afford it, no? Not to mention, as crazy as people are about leasing cars, like many typical Ameican families they probaly don't own them outright. Robbie employs a good number of people , from young to old from barely literate (just coming out of jail) to college students, and from dishwashers to servers and cooks- in fairness we really don't know who has cars and who doesn't out of all of those people.

The only thing that is really bothering me this season (outsdie of her ungrateful son), is vsiably seeing Miss Robbie age. It's going to be time for her to sit down soon, and I don't see any relief coming from anywhere in sight for her. She's been part of her community for a while and it sure would be a shame to see her pass on, and have her restaurant dream dry up like a rasin in the sun because the next generation of her family (all those nephews, nieces, sons, & grandsons) let it waste away. Yeah..what I'm getting out odf this season is that many young people are lazy, entitled, and get on my nerves... lol

lol Girl it's funny how we both interpret the situation...yet we are still "here" (que Martin Lawrence) on the issue. lol

I totally get that Jenae is possibly a good woman to Tim. She has a job, she's taking care of the baby, seems stable, etc. My issue with her is that she tells too much of her issues with Tim to her cousins and friends...mostly her girlfriends. I know there's a time when everyone needs to vent and have someone to tell their frustrations too, but it's just me, when it comes to relationship issues, I keep mum when it comes to my girlfriends because those heffas usually are glad that your relationship is going wrong. With Jenae being so career minded and goal oriented, I'm having some trouble trying to understand how she thinks she can build something with Tim, someone who doesn't quite know who he is or what he really wants to do with himself yet. I know when folks in love, they can't see very well, but she's already bought a home with him and had a child, but I just think that Tim was weary minded from the jump. And speaking of Tim...

Yes I agree that he can be extremely disrespectful, egotistical and whiny most of the time, but at the same time, I do get why he feels the way he does. This man spent 10 years of his life in prison. They never really say how long he's been out, but I'm guessing about 3-5 years, give or take. I also get the notion that he's younger than Jenae. I honestly think he should had stayed single for a time after he got out of prison to "find himself" rather than getting into a relationship. That was the time to do that rap thing and realize it's not for him. Then when he mentioned he tried to do acting too, I was just like, wow he was really all over the place. lol And if you ask me, I honestly don't believe that he and Jenae's relationship were on solid ground from the start. Sure they may love each other, but it takes much more than that to keep a relationship growing...I just don't feel like they were on the same page as Jenae thought they were. Then he proposes, which I think was just in the moment. That man is nowhere ready to get married than the man in the moon and that's the sad part...here he proposes to her and she expects him, as any normal woman would, to make the plans for the wedding and etc. His backpeddling and side negative comments say it all, he just doesn't want nor is ready to get married right now. So he's constantly taking up time at the restaurant saying that he's working hard for his new family. Meanwhile, Jenae blows up his phone always asking where he's at and then hanging up in his face (which I wouldn't be taking that too much. Once the hanging up the phone in the face behavior starts, its normally the start of the end IMO because it's so disrespectful). Yes Tim should be there more for family events, especially where is mother is concerned and surely he should had been there from start to end for his own baby's 1st birthday party, but he has a major issue with balancing things out and making priorities.

Hmm, not necessarily. I know it's been alluded to the fact that Jenae has a pretty good job and had one even before she met Tim, but Tim just seems like he's working overtime. Either he's avoiding personal issues or that money isn't coming in like one would think it is giving everytime the camera shoots to the restaurant, the lines are almost always out the door. Don't mean no harm, obviously the customers are used to it, but umm, if I'm driving by planning on eating there and I see that line, I'm going to keep driving to somehwere else to eat. No way I'm waiting that damn long for some food, no matter how finger smacking good it is. lol

I'm going by what they portray on the show. Nearly everytime Tim wants to send one or a few of his workers over to the new restaurant, or when he does the catering events, he has to give them rides...which in turn leads you to believe that they don't have cars of their own. I'm not saying all of them, but the majority that we've seen on the show, that's how it's been.

I am so right there with you girl you don't even know lol !

So once I saw the thread today I realized I was waaaay behind on the episodes, and sure enough, I skipped right to the baby's Birthday Party episode...and yes, Janette/Janelle/Janae/Jamiroquai was overdoing it for me with the phone...also on point: Tim does seem very much checked out and has major issues with balancing and prioritizing. I'm not sure they're going to make it. The acting i didn't even know about. I hate to say it but, Tim is not deep enough for acting neutral . That would take not just drive, but peeling away layers of yourself; that poor chile can't even have a deep conversation about issues or deal with therapy---don't he know acting is about reaching inside to your core to bring something out of yourself? Lord, h'ammercy. neutral

For a laugh though, who knew that old spoiled lazy Charles would actually start talking like he has sense this season, even offering his younger cousin advice on straightening up? lol I guess the family pilgrimage to the Oprah Winfrey Life Class taught him somethin,g and he's slightly considering having a future that involves work and a positive attitude lol

I honestly think he should had stayed single for a time after he got out of prison to "find himself" rather than getting into a relationship. That was the time to do that rap thing and realize it's not for him. Then when he mentioned he tried to do acting too, I was just like, wow he was really all over the place. lol And if you ask me, I honestly don't believe that he and Jenae's relationship were on solid ground from the start. Sure they may love each other, but it takes much more than that to keep a relationship growing...I just don't feel like they were on the same page as Jenae thought they were. Then he proposes, which I think was just in the moment. That man is nowhere ready to get married than the man in the moon and that's the sad part...here he proposes to her and she expects him, as any normal woman would, to make the plans for the wedding and etc. His backpeddling and side negative comments say it all, he just doesn't want nor is ready to get married right now. So he's constantly taking up time at the restaurant saying that he's working hard for his new family. Meanwhile, Jenae blows up his phone always asking where he's at and then hanging up in his face (which I wouldn't be taking that too much. Once the hanging up the phone in the face behavior starts, its normally the start of the end IMO because it's so disrespectful). Yes Tim should be there more for family events, especially where is mother is concerned and surely he should had been there from start to end for his own baby's 1st birthday party, but he has a major issue with balancing things out and making priorities.

I am so right there with you girl you don't even know lol !

So once I saw the thread today I realized I was waaaay behind on the episodes, and sure enough, I skipped right to the baby's Birthday Party episode...and yes, Janette/Janelle/Janae/Jamiroquai was overdoing it for me with the phone...also on point: Tim does seem very much checked out and has major issues with balancing and prioritizing. I'm not sure they're going to make it. The acting i didn't even know about. I hate to say it but, Tim is not deep enough for acting neutral . That would take not just drive, but peeling away layers of yourself; that poor chile can't even have a deep conversation about issues or deal with therapy---don't he know acting is about reaching inside to your core to bring something out of yourself? Lord, h'ammercy. neutral

For a laugh though, who knew that old spoiled lazy Charles would actually start talking like he has sense this season, even offering his younger cousin advice on straightening up? lol I guess the family pilgrimage to the Oprah Winfrey Life Class taught him somethin,g and he's slightly considering having a future that involves work and a positive attitude lol

Oh yes girl! I'm sorry I was unaware you hadn't caught up to the most recent episodes. Hope I didn't give away any spoilers for you, but I think I did. lol

Honestly, now that I've been thinking about Tim's issues... he loves to throw the excuse around that the reason why he works at the Mangrove location so hard is to "provide for his new family"... "all of this is for TJ"...but all in all, he could take time off if he wanted to. He could attend family events if he wanted to, and he could be ON TIME to places if he wanted to. Damn he's the manager. I think he uses the restaurant as a crutch for avoidance as well as competing with his mother in regards to who's location is doing better than the other. rolleyes While friendly competition is nice, he takes it to a whole other level where it almost seems like he wants the new location that his mother worked so hard for and fought so hard for, to fail.

As far as Tim's relationship with Jenae, oh I can tell you, I think it's pretty much a done deal. One clue is the opening credits. I'd be shocked if they were still together because that would require some MAJOR improvement on his part and folks don't change overnight.

Girl you haven't caught up enough, because as it did seem like Charles had turned a new leaf this season, he goes back to the same old trifling wayward ways...yet again. rolleyes And another thing, I don't believe for a hot minute that he likes girls cuz that boy is purse all the way.

Another thing I don't get is why doesn't Miss Robbie have a manager for the "Upper Crust" location? If she did, it could relieve a lot of tension and prevent her from having to jump "on the line" to serve food when they are short staffed or when they are extremely busy.

It was funny at first but now, for me at least, it's getting to be a bit old. Plus it sounds as if she loses her voice quite frequently with all the yelling and cursing out she does. confused

Watched a minute of that trash and turned the channel. Yeah it sucked that badly.

Why do you call it trash? No violence, an old woman trying to work hard and create al egacy for her family--what's so bad about that?

That's what I call all reality shows lol

That's what I call them too. The only reason I caught that one episode is that I was at someone else's house.

I don't care about any of these people's lives and am pretty perplexed about people who put all their business on display to the world.

My life is fucked up enough as it is to watch someone else's.

Exactly, I watch tv to be entertained and/or educated, not to watch someone else's drama, fake and real be presented to me as "reality" tv.

I also don't think when someone's life is a trainwreck that it is something to be laughed about.
