After the Scandal: Paula Deen Gets Cooking Channel
One year on from the lawsuit over alleged racism that ended with the case being dismissed, 67-year-old Southern chef Paula Deen is back with a vengeance and her own cooking channel. (Take that, Food Network!)
Everyone’s favourite Georgia cook was fired from the Food Network last summer, despite winning her lawsuit, in which she was accused of racist behavior. Now she is making a comeback in September with a network of her own.
Deen told a magazine journalist: “I can’t wait for y’all to see my shows!”
What’s more, her two sons, who were at her side throughout the lawsuit, however tough things got, will be regulars with her on the new shows. And Deen insists that she’s never happier than when she has one son on either side of her.
She added: “We capture every nook, cranny and moment. It’s so exciting!”
But what do you think? Are you buzzing with excitement or will you be turning off?
