Labelle, 73, dished to Et about the show's second season, the people she doesn't allow in her kitchen and how the cast of the Fox series Star -- on which she will appear as Carlotta Brown’s (Queen Latifah) mother -- ate more of her desserts than she authorized.
Et: What are the requirements for being a guest on Patti Labelle's Place?
Patti Labelle: You just have to be a friend of Patti's who can or cannot cook, and if you can't cook at all, I'm gonna do it all and have you chop up a few onions.
Who surprised you most with their cooking skills this season?
I knew Tamela Mann
