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

It looks as if the cancellation of Rosie O’Donnell’s OWN talk show was just the beginning of cutbacks at the Oprah Winfrey Network. The cable channel is laying off 30 staffers in what’s being described as a restructuring of the network’s operations in Los Angeles and New York. In a press release Winfrey said as CEO she has a responsibility to “chart the course for long-term success for the network” and that the layoffs are a “necessary next step.”

Winfrey took over as CEO and Chief Creative Officer of OWN eight months ago. Having struggled in the ratings during its first several months on air, OWN has been enjoying an upswing since September with Winfrey’s own series, “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” leading the charge. The show took the number one spot among all cable networks with its broadcast of Oprah’s interview with Whitney Houston’s family on March 11th. OWN announced the cancellation of “The Rosie Show” last Friday citing flagging ratings.
