By now, it’s almost impossible you haven’t heard that butter queen Paula Deen has been thrown in the deep fryer for, well, being a bit of a racist. Who could forget this justification of why she didn’t use the N-word towards her all-African American staff at a southern plantation wedding:
“No, because that’s not what these men were. They were professional black men doing a fabulous job.”
Here’s the thing: while her chocolate and peanut butter volcano cake is so good you may want to cry, Paula’s always been a bit of a nut bag. Not that some of it isn’t warranted: she lost her parents young and her Jimmy Deen (ex-husband, not a sausage sandwich… although those really are delicious) left her broke with two boys to feed. From there, she admirably climbed to the top, establishing herself as one of the more successful, money-making food brands — all while clogging your arteries no less.
But the crazy definitely lurked all along, and we have the 10 quotes to prove it. We can’t make this stuff up, ya’ll.
“I see a piece of bacon trying to peak out, but this little piggy’s not gettin’ away from Paula.”
She thinks this is frosting:
“And here goes our frosting – mayonnaise and cheese! You know, that’s really hard to beat.”
“I can’t stand a skimpy deviled egg.”
“Now if you’re on a diet, you don’t have to do this. You can just eat your brownie plain.”
“I’m your cook, not your doctor!”
“And if y’all will excuse me for a couple minutes, I’m gonna finish makin’ love to my tater.”
“Doesn’t it smell good? I just want to come up with a room deodorizer that smells like bacon and onions.
“My idea of a balanced diet is a cookie in each hand.”
“Now all we have to do is just dump.”
“You know, there’s nothing worse than busted balls.”
You said it, Paula!
