The celebrity chef has made a successful comeback into the limelight after her career was seemingly over due to her racial scandal in June 2013.
Paula Deen's successful career as a celebrity chef came crashing down in June 2013 after she admitted using the N-word while under oath in racial discrimination lawsuit. The aftermath was devastating, the 68-year-old lost millions of dollars from endorsement and sponsor deals, who didn't want to be associated with her name.
Deen recently opened up about returning to the limelight
However, Deen has now successfully rejuvenated her career via launching her very own digital network. But the journey back into the limelight, which she spoke candidly about while appearing on Tuesday's Meredith Vieira Show, wasn't easy due to the frequent scrutiny.

Dennis Rodman took the top spot, with Paula Deen and Anthony Weiner coming behind him
Dennis Rodman topped one of the least desirable end of year lists going, as GQ placed the North Korea-infatuated former NBA star at the top of their annual 'Least Influential People' list. Rodman took home the dubious honour, which was awarded to Mitt Romney last year, beating politicians, pop stars, actors and actresses to the top spot thanks to his strange connection with North Korea and its dictator Kim Jong Un.
Described as a "Q-list celebrity willing to commit borderline treason just to hang out with a dictator who himself aspires to be a Q-list celebrity," by QG (reprinted by the Associated Press), Rodman won't be letter his minute influence get in the way of continuing his self-imposed peace mission in the dictatorship as he continues to travel back and forth to the Asian nation. Rodman revealed this week that he intends on going back to North Korea for the umpteenth time next month, this time going for an exhibition basketball tour.
Disgraced celebrity chef Paula Deen took the number two spot, with her racial slurs and subsequent court case with a former employee seeing her once glittering cooking empire crumble around her. The racist restauranteur was followed closely by former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, whose sexting exploits returned to the news for a second time whilst he was running for the New York mayorship in July. GQ described the horny Democrat as " the saddest lecher in American politics, and that's saying something, because they're all lechers."

This might be the most controversial 'Law & Order' episode yet.
Some might question the appropriateness of a Law & Order: SVU episode for tackling Paula Deen’s racism scandal, not to mention the sore topic of the Trayvon Martin case. Still, the rather mixed up storyline has been given the go-ahead. In the upcoming episode, Cybill Shepherd will play Jolene Castille, a celebrity chef (they’re really throwing subtlety out the window on this one, people), who shoots and kills a black teenager in a hoodie on the upper West Side. And here’s the kicker: Jolene shoots, because she believes she’s being pursued by a rapist. The character claims self-defense because she knew the detectives were after a rapist who fit the description, according to TV Guide.
Paula Deen's racism scandal is clearly referenced, but in a rather troubling context.
So, let’s review: Paula Deen reference: check. Trayvon Martin reference: check. Rape fears used as plot device: once again, check. It sounds like the episode, also starring Arrested Development’s Jeffrey Tambor as Jolene Castille’s defence lawyer and Smash’s Leslie Odom Jr. as, wait for it…a minister. While the topics of rape and racism (not always separately) have once again become hot button, divisive issues in the US, the show seems to be reducing them to one-episode story arcs. According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly, however, the writers actually intended for this to be a divisive, controversial episode.
Judge dismissed racial discrimination part of lawsuit launched against Paula Deen and her restaurants.
Chef and businesswoman Paula Deen has been partially victorious in a case launched against her by a former restaurant worker, Lisa Jackson. Jackson alleged that, although she herself was white, there was a pattern of racial discrimination against African-American workers at Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House restaurant in Georgia. Jackson also claims that she experienced sexual harassment from Paula Deen's brother Earl "Bubba" Hiers during the five year period she worked at the Savannah eatery.

Ms. Jackson, who had managed Paula Deen's restaurant until 2010, claimed that widespread racial discrimination in the organisation had created a difficult working environment for her, and were "more personally offensive" to her because her nieces are biracial. She also accused Mr. Hiers of making lewd remarks and displaying pornography at the restaurant.

In an exhaustive week of celebrity news, tributes were paid to James Gandolfini, the late actor who played the legendary Tony Soprano on HBO’s long-running series The Sopranos. There was happier news for Kim and Kanye, who named their little girl, and Brad Pitt’s World War Z battled back to pull in millions at the box-office.
Sleep Well, Tony: James Gandolfini, the actor who took dramatic television performances to a new level as Tony Soprano in The Sopranos, died this week aged 51. Gandolfini won three Emmy Awards for the long-running HBO series and will be sadly missed in both the film and television world.
North, East, South, West: So Kim Kardashian and Kanye didn’t call their kid Kaidence. Phew. You can all breathe a massive sigh of relief now - but make sure you’re sitting down for this one. The girl’s name is North.
Controversy over Paula Deen's admittance to using racial slurs continues. The fired Food Network chef has been defended by her son, Bobby Deen, who spoke to CNN.
Celebrity chef Paula Deen was defended yesterday (Tuesday 25th June) by her son Bobby. Bobby said he was 'disgusted by the entire thing.' Paula Deen's contracts with a number of companies, whom she acts as a spokesperson for, have been cancelled after the chef admitted in court that she had, in the past, used racist language. The chef who held a Friday night slot on the Food Network has been dismissed.

Bobby Deen spoke to CNN and used examples of his upbringing to show his mother was not prejudiced. His childhood hero was Hank Aarons, a Black baseball player who had to overcome racial prejudice in order to play.With regards to the 'N' word Paula Deen admitted to using, Bobby said "I abhor it coming from any person. . We weren't raised in a home where that word was used". Paula's past remarks have been dragged up as a result of this scandal. In a 2012 New York Times interview she made some unsavoury comments about a black employee and talked about the impact the abolition of slavery had on her family. Apparently Paula's great-grandfather, following the American Civil War in which he lost his son and his "workers", "went out into his barn and shot himself because he couldn't deal with those kind of changes".

Much like Paula Deen's gravy, the plot thickens in the lawsuit against her. But is she a racist, or just old?
After her deposition in a discrimination lawsuit raised a number of criticisms, Paula Deen has come out with an explanation. In the deposition, Deen admits to having used racial slurs on a number of occasions in the past. The Food Network regular freely admits to having used the n-word at times of stress or frustration. In her defense though, she’s, well, old. Or at least that’s the line of defense Deen’s company is going with.
The following statement from Paula Deen Enterprises has been provided by TMZ, who quoted a sstatement from the company as saying: "During a deposition where she swore to tell the truth, Ms. Deen recounted having used a racial epithet in the past, speaking largely about a time in American history which was quite different than today."
Yes, it seems like they’re going with the classic “those were different times” excuse. But the statement goes on: "[Paula] was born 60 years ago when America's South had schools that were segregated, different bathrooms, different restaurants and Americans rode in different parts of the bus. This is not today. To be clear Ms. Deen does not find acceptable the use of this term under any circumstance by anyone nor condone any form of racism or discrimination."
