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!!!!

Ugh. Paula. What have you done. I hate this on so many levels.
I thought originally it was just her brother not her saying to the left comments...oh well

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.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

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.

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.

Growing out super short cut

Mostly low poo

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]

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.

Or sexually harassing everyone who walks in the room.

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.
