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

After a long day spent introducing Atlantans to her "O You!" tour/brandwashing campaign last weekend with her devoted friends/employees at the Georgia World Congress Center downtown, Oprah Winfrey must have been positively famished. Winfrey was spotted breezing through the front doors of the Intercontinental hotel Saturday night with OWN TV buds Gayle King and Nate Berkus as they congratulated the talk show queen's former personal chef Art Smith at his brand-new namesake restaurant Southern Art (we hear Oprah openly avoided the usual sneaky celeb backdoor entrance and exit approach and had only one member of her security team with her). FOO [Friend of Oprah] and Atlanta film and television studio mogul Tyler Perry later joined Winfrey and King for a private dinner around 9 p.m. at Canoe. We're told Lady O ordered a well-deserved vodka and soda with just a splash of cranberry and enjoyed the beet salad and a single fried green tomato. King, meanwhile, sampled the kitchen's African squash soup and artisan cheese salad.

Jane Fonda hosts a groovy G-CAPP “love in” fundraiser at the Woodruff Arts Center

When the live auction bidding temporarily stalled at the Atlanta premiere of Jane Fonda's new film, "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" at Symphony Hall Tuesday night, the two-time Oscar winner and Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention founder took to the microphone herself. On the auction block at the G-CAPP fundraiser: A five-day stay at Fonda's ex-hubby Ted Turner's 100,000-plus acre Flying D Ranch in Montana. "I know a lot about this one!" cracked Fonda as the crowd roared. "Visiting this ranch is like visiting Africa. It's bigger than metro Los Angeles. Oh, and it's got a beautiful guest house that I decorated!" The trip ended up fetching $14,500. The CNN founder's name also popped up when Fonda helped to auction off a 2012 trip to the Grammys, complete with an introduction to the now-Los Angeles resident's personal hairstylist and a hike with the Hollywood icon up to the Hollywood sign. "But it's not a bad hike," Fonda explained. "Ted would do it!" The trip went for $18,000.

Exclusive: Monica Pearson on the end of “Oprah,” the debut of Action News at 4 p.m. and her “positively” final year on-air

On Thursday at 4 p.m. as the nation begins to come to grips with its Oprah Winfrey withdrawal, WSB-TV will debut a brand-new Action News broadcast with Monica Pearson and John Bachman. Given how Winfrey and Pearson's careers have fatefully intersected over the past 35 years, it's only fitting that the Queen of Daytime Talk's time slot be filled by the Queen of Atlanta TV News.

Requiem for a Reporter: Kathy Scruggs

In her heyday, Kathy Scruggs was a hard-drinking, tough-talking police reporter who wasn't afraid of anything. Her raucous sense of humor was what I loved most about her.
Richard Jewell 1996 Atlanta Olympics Bombing

Presumed Guilty

Overzealous. That adjective haunted Richard Jewell long before he became known as the FBI's leading suspect in the Centennial Olympic Park bombing on July 27, 1996.
