Oprah double dips, Bob’s back and “Rudolph” returns!

Following a lengthy day spent presenting Atlantans to her “O You!” tour/brandwashing campaign a week ago together with her devoted buddies/employees in the Georgia World Congress Center downtown, Oprah should have been positively famished. Winfrey was spotted breezing with the front doorways from the Intercontinental hotel Saturday night with OWN TV buds Gayle King and Nate Berkus because they congratulated the talk show queen’s former personal chef Art Cruz at his brand-new namesake restaurant Southern Art (we hear Oprah freely prevented the typical sneaky superstar backdoor entrance and exit approach coupled with just one person in her security team together with her). FOO [Friend of Oprah] and Atlanta film and tv studio tycoon Tyler Perry later became a member of Winfrey and King for any private dinner around 9 p.m. at Canoe. We’re told Lady O purchased a properly-deserved vodka and soda with only a a little cranberry and enjoyed the beet salad along with a single fried eco-friendly tomato. King, meanwhile, sampled the kitchen’s African squash soup and artisan cheese salad.

Food Network staple Paula Deen, meanwhile, doesn’t need to bother about O magazine fitness trainer Bob Greene scrutinizing every morsel she is aimed at her cake hole. Once the Savannah chef dined in the backyard at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse at Phipps Plaza a couple of days ago, she enthusiastically purchased in the signature spring rolls, crispy chicken livers having a port balsamic glaze, a chopped salad and angel hair pasta with fresh tulsi and pomodoro sauce.

As Osborne loyalists know, the Oscars historian required a leave of absence captured to possess some surgery. A sweater-clad Osborne has returned in teaser spots now airing on TCM. Explaining the lack of his usual business suit work garb, a rested, smiling Osborne states, “I’m still on vacation” but cribbing a line from “Snow White-colored and also the Seven Dwarfs” he promises: “Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it’s to work I am going.Inches We hear to create Osborne’s existence much more comfortable, his Atlanta TCM bachelor pad set (lower towards the trademark red chairs) has been recreated in New You are able to City therefore the host usually stays in the home city a minimum of initially because he returns to filming his hosting responsibilities this month.
