    Default Paula Deen is Back and Crying

    We haven't gossiped about Paula Deen for at least 2 months. She's
    back. Skinniest we've ever seen her. And crying, of course.

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/p...rance/2815001/
    (note that is a 5 year old stock photo)

    10-minute ovation? While I do think her downfall was mostly
    media-hysteria, I wouldn't go as far as clapping for 10-minutes. I do
    blame her for trying to play the media that was playing her.

    She's worth no more than about a minute followed by an embarrassing
    "forced ovation" lasting long enough for her to *almost* get off the
    stage, but not quite.

    Did you see her on Mahstah Shef?

    Show recorded in March, played August 28.

    I read in subsequent articles that many of the attendees were there
    specifically to see Paula as part of her fan club. They (98% women)
    paid $95/pop to see and support her. She has been the "main
    attraction" at this show for about 10 years. It's a regular Paula
    Deen convention.

    Now *THAT'S* playing your audience and fans!

    It's even worse than I thought. Look at all the Ticket Levels you can
    buy - all featuring different stages of interaction with Paula Deen.
    The Paul Deen VIP Tickets were $400!

    http://www.metrocookinghouston.com/tickets/

    She came back because she needed the CASH now that all her sponsors
    dumped her. Will she be the next White Oprah? Probably not at 66
    years old.

    We were on a cruise in January that had a huge detail of her fan club
    aboard. Got to see her once and she was in a really nasty mood, yelling
    at some poor guy about something. Might have been her husband. Those
    women worshiped her like some kind of goddess. BTW, most of her fans
    were over-weight.

    They're giving away a few "Paula Deen Cruises" at the trade show she's
    hosting this weekend.

    OMG, if you tried to drag me there, I'd gladly pay $95 for you to set
    me free.

    What, you can't handle a freak show? I find them deliciously horrifying.

    Giada is a very beautiful woman. Hot is the word that comes to mind.
    But that Cheshire Cat full mouth grin that she always gives blows it
    all, imo. I'd do her if you'd put a strip of duct tape over that damn
    full teeth grin of hers. LOL!

    I've never seen anyone smile like that before. I can only assume that
    she got some major dental work at some point and is so proud of her
    'new' teeth, that she just wants to show them off constantly. She
    needs to quit with the teeth and put some emphasis on her nice
    breasts. (Hi Sheldon)

    Those are probably the same women I saw on my one and only visit to her
    mediocre restaurant in Savannah. It was just cafeteria type food, I tell
    ya. A real let down with nothing but tourists lapping it up. Ugh.

    I see that the media has given her a promotion and is referring to her
    as a chef.

    If she would stop her incessant blubbering, speak English, and quit playing
    the martyr bit I might watch her providing she has something interesting
    to present.

    I can already cook grits and collards and am not really a dessert fan.

    I let myself into the place to look at the menu and how the place was
    set up. Flabbergasted would be a mild description of my reaction!
    Didn't expect anything so downscale, especially with a line that long
    and no openings until after 9PM (this was the middle of the day).

    > A real let down with nothing but tourists lapping it up. Ugh.


    The tourist part isn't surprising at all, since it's in the heart of
    the tourist section. We would have eaten at the BBQ place a block
    away, but it was closed (which probably made it a Sunday).

    Didn't someone say in another post that she'd appeared on Master Chef
    recently? There's your promotion.
