Paula Deen isn’t just taking up residence in Denial City — she’s the mayor. Lamar Odom is definitely hanging out there, but he’s not on Deen’s level.
Here’s what happened. TMZ asked Paula Deen, “is this your comeback?” To which Paula Deen said,
I never went anywhere!
Um, really, Paula? Really?
TMZ caught up with Deen on her way to Houston where she was going to appear on Metro Cooking and Entertainment Show, her first appearance since the scandal. She referred to Texas as, “a state of lovely and happy people.” LOL, okay. She also shared some trivia about Texas — that Dallas was voted “the #1 happiest city in America.” And actually, she’s right. Sort of. Mainstreet.com tied Dallas with Fort Worth as the #1 happiest city.
The show went really well for Deen. The audience gave her a standing ovation and Deen and cried, saying, “These are tears of joy, y’all. This is my first time out in three months.” (Houston Chronicle.)
Looks like she’s back, y’all. You ready to welcome her? These fans certainly are:

Paula Deen‘s lawsuit that ended her many endorsements, turn the public against her (but not BFF O.J. Simpson), and basically ruined her career, was dismissed in court. A former restaurant manager tried to sue Paula on grounds of racial discrimination, saying that Paula used “the N-word” frequently. Deen did not deny using the word, later citing ignorance as her reasoning in a really bad attempt at an apology. From Today:
According to court documents filed in Savannah, Ga., all charges against the TV chef have been dismissed in the suit brought by former restaurant manager Lisa Jackson, with no award of costs or fees to any party. Jackson had sued on the grounds that the work environment at Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House, owned by Deen and her brother, subjected employees to sexual harassment and racial discrimination.
Friday’s news comes two weeks after a federal judge threw out the lawsuit’s race discrimination claims, stating that though others may have faced that discrimination in the restaurant, Jackson could not sue since she was not one of the victims.
But for Deen, the damage is done. Maybe she’ll rethink the Dancing with the Stars offer. If she doesn’t appear, we’ll still get some sort of Paula Deen TV dose. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is doing a Paula Deen themed episode based on this whole incident. They’re also combining her story with the Trayvon Martin case, in what’s sure to be an episode of pure WTF. Here’s a description from ABC News:
[Jeffrey] Tambor is a defense attorney representing a very high-profile celebrity woman chef who thought she was being pursued by a rapist and turned around it was a teenager. And she shot him.
Guess who’s going to play Deen? CYBILL SHEPHERD, Y’ALL!!
