Last night Oprah Winfrey and Director Ava DuVernay premiered their highly anticipated show for the OWN network, Queen Sugar in LA. and social media is going crazy about Oprah’s new Weight Wacther’s body that she showed off at the premiere wearing a little black dress.
Media Mogul, Oprah and award winning directress Ava DuVernay hosted an exclusive screening of their upcoming “Queen Sugar” series at the Warner Bros. Studio Lot’s Steven J. Ross Theater in Burbank, California yesterday.
Oprah co-created Queen Sugar – which is based on Natalie Baszile’s 2014 novel – alongside her Selma director, Ava DuVernay. Oprah is looking good!!!
Winfrey acknowledged to ET’s Nancy O’Dell at the premiere that keeping up her weight loss has taken plenty of hard work.
“[Being on a] movie set, you know, it’s so hard,” she admitted, referring to currently filming the HBO movie The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. “You know, you are working those long days, and then by the end of the day you’re like, ‘Oh my God, a bag of hot Cheetos calling your name.'”
“You have to leave the craft table and ask for a plum,” she added.
Oprah snapped pics with the show’s lead stars Dawn-Lyen Gardner (who plays Charley Bordelon West), Kofi Siriboe (who plays Ralph Angel Bordelon) and Rutina Wesley (who plays Nova Bordelon).
Queen Sugar – premiering September 6-7 on OWN – centers on three Bordelon siblings who reunite after inheriting their family’s sugarcane farm.
