Atlanta restaurateur and Clark Atlanta University alumnae, Pinky Cole has been nominated for an NAACP Award for “Outstanding Literary Work” for her book Eat Plants B*tch

She posted a video documenting the moment she received the nomination news while riding in a car with her fiancé and team.

“God really has a sense of humor!” she captioned her post referencing the situation of her segment on the Today show being canceled just a day before.

Cole had made headlines for a lawsuit from a former employee accusing her of taking tips from staff and not paying minimum wage, resulting in her segment getting canceled one day before she was set to make the appearance.

Cole posted a lengthy statement to social media to deny claims made against her in a lawsuit. “The people who know me, know I ONLY operate in integrity, so this is a wicked narrative especially when this is nothing more than an allegation,” she said. 

“To get a call that I was removed from tomorrows show because they don’t want to be involved in the storylines, is bizarre to me, but all good,” Cole added.

It appears to be true for Cole that when one door closes, another one opens.

The NAACP Image Awards ceremony will take place live and in person for the first time in three years, on Saturday, Feb. 25, and will air on BET at 8 p.m. ET.
