Two years ago she almost lost everything over a 20-year-old deposition in which she used the “n” word and now Paula Deen is back in the hot seat again.
The 68-year-old celebrity chef posted a photo via Twitter of herself dressed as Lucille Ball on Tuesday (July 7), and unfortunately that same snapshot included Paula’s son Bobby Deen wearing brown face paint and posing as Desi Arnaz’s character Ricky Ricardo.
It’s no secret that 2013 was a really tough year for Paula Deen, and this morning (September 23) the southern cook showed up at “Today” with her two sons.
After sitting through a retrospective of the past fifteen months, Deen declared, "I looked at none of it, Matt, because I didn't recognize that woman. That was a woman in trauma, in, I would say shock, trying to understand what had happened.”
She’s never been accused of having a filter so it’s no wonder Paula Deen is once again facing criticism for her careless words.
The disgraced southern chef told People magazine that trying to repair her public image after her racist allegations is similar to the struggle faced by Michael Sam, an NFL hopeful who recently revealed that he’s gay.
She’s on her way to a major career comeback following last year’s racist allegations and Paula Deen wants to set the record straight.
The southern-fried celebrity chef showed up at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival over the weekend, noting that she’s truly sorry for any pain she caused with her careless words from a few decades ago.
