‘Sweetie Pie’s’ on the Oprah Winfrey Own Network’s popular hit reality show, is reportedly named in a lawsuit that was filed on Tuesday by one of its former employees, Veronica Tate, according to sources. Tate filed her documents with the U.S. District Court, was employed by the restaurant’s Grove Street location for exactly one week back in October 2012. The young woman is claiming in the court papers, she was the object of constant unwanted sexual advance for “Ike,’ who allegedly went as far as putting his hands on her, and repeatedly make comment of a sexual nature. While I was in Memphis, recently for the St. Jude, ‘Celebration of Hope,’ I went to Beale Street, and Sweetie Pie’s is working on a new location on historic Beale Street, Good luck with the new locations.
