Oprah Winfrey is back in Atlanta this time as filming for "Greenleaf" gets underway.
Winfrey, who served as a producer for and played a role in "Selma," which largely filmed in metro Atlanta, stopped by a private party hosted by Imara Canady to view her network's new series "Belief"on Sunday night. My colleague Ernie Suggs has details here !
Oprah posted this fun video of what became the best party ever!
"Greenleaf," a new OWN/Lionsgate project, is set in Tennessee but films here. The plot, per imdb: "The unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family and their sprawling Memphis megachurch, dark secrets and lies."
In other O news, the queen of all media "is paying about $43.2 million for a 10 percent stake in Weight Watchers and is joining the weight management company's board," the AP reports.
As part of a five-year agreement, Winfrey has given the company the right to use her name, image, likeness and endorsement for the company, its programs, products and services, subject to her approval. She will also make personal appearances on the company's behalf.
"We are expanding our purpose from focusing on weight loss alone to more broadly helping people lead a healthier, happier life," said Weight Watchers President and CEO Jim Chambers said in a written statement.
