When “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” returns to OWN for its new season next month, Miss Robbie’s new restaurant The Upper Crust will finally be ready to open.   Last night in Atlanta, the Oprah Winfrey Network hosted a screening party for the upcoming third season of their hit series at Frank Ski’s Restaurant.    Fans, friends and media convened for a preview of the premiere episode and a meet and greet with cast members Miss Robbie Montgomery and Tim Norman.
In the premiere episode (Welcome to the Upper Crust), airing Saturday, Sept. 15 from 9 to 10 p.m., Miss Robbie plans a soft opening party – a party Tim refuses to help his mom arrange, claiming he’s too busy with the Mangrove location. Plus Robbie’s nephew, Lil’ Charles, is still trying to be a bartender at the new spot.  The episode was really good!  Atlanta’s Frank Ski and his Mom (pictured above) enjoyed watching the premier episode as well. Check out more photos from the Atlanta screening and watch the first 5 minutes of the new season of “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s”  too! READ MORE

Stevie supposedly has some other projects going on like a relationship book, but making music for artists such as Mariah Carey, who he has worked with before, and Kanye West is gonna take Stevie to another level.

R&B singer Sunshine Anderson hosted an intimate Tweet & Greet event with special guest Anthony “Q” (formerly of Day26) last night at Aurum Lounge in Atlanta. Espada Tequila treated the guests to an open bar of their product and they guests also enjoyed miniature cupcakes prepared by Simply Delicious Cake.

Joseline Hernandez has become a superstar since the hit show “Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta” and now everywhere she goes people want either and autograph or to take a picture. Well apparently a fan saw Joseline and Stevie J. in the Airport in Atlanta and couldn’t help asking to take a pic with the star, even though Joseline was trying to enjoy a meal. Joseline denied taking a photo, due to the fact that she was eating, and a twitter fight ensued shortly after. As soon as the fan walked away they began making comments about Joseline and Stevie J. and how rude they were which caused Joseline to respond. Read more to see the response.
