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 !

"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."

This never gets old!

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.
