ok she's just trolling us at this point

Paula Deen: I'm like 'that black football player'

Paula Deen is continuing to try to launch her comeback.

The celeb chef, whose world crumbled nine months ago after she admitted using the n-word, told a crowd at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami Beach last weekend that she is "back in the saddle," and now she's telling People magazine in the issue hitting stands on Friday, "If it wasn't for my fans' love, I'd be home breathing into a paper bag."

Deen says, "I'm fighting to get my name back," adding, "I feel like 'embattled' or 'disgraced' will always follow my name. It's like that black football player who recently came out," says Deen, referring to NFL prospect Michael Sam. "He said, 'I just want to be known as a football player. I don't want to be known as a gay football player.' I know exactly what he's saying."

At her lowest, Deen says, she took comfort in the kitchen. "I made eight cakes in six days," she tells People. The crazed baking prompted her husband of nearly 10 years, Michael Groover, 58, to tell her, "Honey, I don't know if I'm going to survive this," she recalls.

"I used to have dreams that I lost everything," Deen goes on to say. "And when it finally happens, you think, 'I'm still alive.'" As for what's she's learned, she says, "Michael told me, 'You've learned how badly words can hurt and how powerful they are.' I have been hurt by them, and I unintentionally hurt others. But I don't want that to define who I am."

She is disgusting, both her personality and her cooking.
lillylilacs 27th-Feb-2014 03:37 pm (UTC)
ugh, i never liked her gross cooking shows and i am sick of seeing her face.
tadashee 27th-Feb-2014 03:37 pm (UTC)
omg. does she think relating to a black person will make her more sympathetic?

also, why does she have to come back? go enjoy all your money and leave the public alone
surefire14 27th-Feb-2014 03:37 pm (UTC)
She's trying to "save face" and made it a point to make sure she described the football player by the color of his skin? It's a stupid comparison for one thing, but if she just would've said "the football player who most recently came out" everybody would've known who she was talking about, dropping his race was not necessary. Apparently she has learned nothing.

This is the episode where Homer bought a gun and he'd asked Bart to throw their dishes in the air so he could shoot them; later that night, they're eating out of all sorts of weird containers and Marge is like "What happened to all our dishes????" lol

Shut your racist face, Deen. Just go over there, have a seat and put a sock in it, okay?
