There has always been something about her that seemed phony. Maybe she just seemed snooty to me. Wonder what Oprah thinks? They were best buds!!!!

I did not know what was going on. I saw a brief clip about it on the news when I was working and it said she admitted to using the N word when she was a bank teller in the 60's (I think). I did not get to hear the whole story and I was wondering why she was questioned/gave a deposition about something she said 40 years ago.

This was the first time I had heard anything about her brother. It still isn't clear what her role is in this. It looks like the charges/allegations are about Bubba, but... Idk, and I don't know if I want to know what "finishing butter" is about. That was random. It's like only little tid bits are being released.

Regardless, it's not cool, but I am curious as to what all happened. Paula gets a little frisky with men on her show. I have seen more than one episode where a male guest seems uncomfortable with the semi nasty remarks she makes. She made Cheech Marin uncomfortable, and I know that ain't easy. Cheech could give a ****. She is a HEAVY flirt, to put it mildly. I wonder if any allegations have been made against her specifically.

ITA! I'm not sorry she got canned. She plucks my nerves in a big way...far too loud and obnoxious, and what she did proves it

She has gotten much worse on air since saying she is diabetic. There was a large difference from her first shows, to shows in her new house, but since then... WOW! I was at my moms one afternoon, and we were eating lunch watching FN. They showed a few of her more recent episodes and she was beyond crude and suggestive. It's pretty bad when your guests can hardly look you in the eye.

Really. Why is this news? How old is she? Where is she from? What is her race? How is this different than 95% of the rest of all old White ppl from down South?

I'm not surprised either and I'm glad she got called out on it. I feel the accusations against her brother got swept under the rug. He was on her show.

I read where her background was that she was afraid to leave her home, so she started making sandwiches for her sons to sell for her. From there she started a restaurant and then got her own show. She's never seemed to be this introvert to me. I saw her as being phony and needing attention. Did anyone see her on "Iron Chef America"? She was too busy trying to be funny and getting attention that she embarrassed herself.

I think it was agorophobia, not introversion, but I"m not positive.

You're right. I couldn't think of the correct term for it. I remember having it at one time and I wasn't an introvert. My mistake. Thx.

Isn't she the one that used the racial slur while planning her brother's wedding. Called the waitstaff the N-word.

I never liked her. And I'm not surprised at all the white people freaking out about it. How dare they not be able to use the N-word amongst themselves. [/sarcasm]

Exactly but I'm glad she's getting shamed and punished for it as she should be. In a lot of circles down here, it's perfectly acceptable. At least hide it or know your wrong socially.

Right! That takes some skill.

He was on her show not too long ago, making some of his families favorite dishes, and he just kept shaking his head saying, "Paula, Paula, Paula".

We're talking about a man who has done scenes scooting across a mental hospital floor, on his butt, in a straight jacket, screaming "My balls are itching!!". It takes a lot to get to him.

I've never seen any of the old white people in my family act like that. Just because your from the south, and of a specific age, it doesn't mean your automatically racist.

Or sexually harassing everyone who walks in the room.

All the old folks I have met from la and ms are awesome. They still pester me to come down for a visit. One of them is an white lady in her mid-eighties. Her best friend is a black lady. They known each other since they were children. They marched to washington together. When obama ran for president she said, "i hope that young man wins, just to piss off the whites." I have to see what she has to say about ms paula deen. I am sure nothing nice.
