One of Ike and Tina Turner most famous Ikettes, Miss Robbie Montgomery is releasing a new cookbook! The “Welcome To Sweetie Pie” star who was a close friend of Tina when she was an Ikette asked the Queen of Rock to write foreword for her new book. And here is what Tina Turner wrote:

Robbie and I worked together and I am happy for her success. Not only has she released this cookbook, but she has a successful business in a chain of restaurants, serving the food we grew up on.This cookbook will show you how to make good down home soul food. Love Tina Turner. I wish you the best with your cookbook Robbie, since you have the Midas touch I know it will be a success, just like your restaurants. And I am very happy for you and I am proud of all that you have accomplished.

Tina Turner on Oprah's Next Chapter

Last night, Tina Turner appeared on ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’, her first televised interview since her retirement from the concert stage in 2009. The program focused mainly on her life after hanging up her dancing shoes: the gaining of Swiss citizenship , her Vogue cover and of course her recent marriage to long-time boyfriend Erwin Bach. In a rare public appearance, the newlywed Bach also sat down together with his wife to reflect on their 25 year relationship. Oprah Winfrey not only asked Tina about recent events, but also about Tina’s unhappy first marriage to Ike Turner. The rock star also looked back on her last ‘farewell’ tour in 2009. The question on everybody’s lips: will there be a return to the spotlights? While Tina didn’t give a definite ‘no’, it seems more unlikely than ever, with Tina claiming that during her last world tour she was often ‘tired of singing and dancing’.
