Paula Deen Reflects On Her Long Road to TV Chef Stardom (VIDEO)

by Stephanie Opella, posted Nov 14th 2011 6:45PM
Paula Deen has come a long way since her lunch delivery service in Savannah, Georgia. She sat down with 'Early' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS) to talk about her career and new book called 'Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible.' Their first stop was Paula's restaurant, The Lady and Sons in Savannah. "It's my hope that when people sit down at these tables, they feel like they have slipped their feet back under their grandmother's table," Deen explained.

Lately, Deen has been getting some backlash for the high fat and salt content of her food. Earlier this year, chef and host of 'No Reservations' Anthony Bourdain said she was, "the most dangerous person to America." Rather than alter her recipes, Deen has advocated moderation in the frequency of eating southern cooking. "I don't do it seven days a week, but when I do, I do it," she said with a smile.

"Yes, I'm a project," Dean admitted, before protesting Oz's assertion that each piece of her fried chicken contains 1,400 calories. "I think he got his information wrong ... it's got to be the whole chicken," she joked.

Matt Lauer set himself up for a flirtatious interview when he introduced Paula Deen as "TV's sexiest female chef." That set the tone for a 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) cooking segment that was supposed to be about mashed potatoes but ended up being more about Deen getting handsy in the kitchen.

"Why do you like buttermilk in so many recipes?" Lauer asked. "The buttermilk gives it a little tang, just a little bite," Deen replied, squeezing his cheek. "You get named the sexiest chef on TV and start flirting with everybody," Lauer quipped.

Dan Byrd & Busy Philipps, 'Food Network Star'The contestants on 'Food Network Star' (Sun., 9PM ET on Food) got to visit the set of 'Cougar Town,' where they were given the challenge of cooking for various members of the show's staff. Three of them (Susie, Justin D. and Whitney) cooked for the cast, where we learned that Busy Philipps has a pretty discerning palette.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

When it came time for their critiques, the best they could muster up about Justin D. seemed to be support for his glasses. "He's got that sexy Harry Potter chef thing going on," Brian Van Holt said.

There were several problems with Whitney's dish. Paula Deen was on-hand as well, and she said, "it was just like a vegetable dish. It bored me out of my gourd."

Paula Deen Remembers Losing Her Pants at Wine Festival (VIDEO)

Rachael Ray and Paula DeenRachael Ray got up close and personal with Paula Deen today on 'Rachael Ray' (weekdays, syndicated), reminiscing about a time Deen lost her pants at Lee Schrager's South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Ray was once embarrassed at having to teach in a bikini because she lost a bet, but Deen had it much worse.

Deen had worn pants with an elastic band to the Festival, and had a premonition they would be trouble. But the waistband was no match for the microphone packs it was charged with holding up. "I turned around quickly to introduce my family, my britches hit the floor," said Deen.

If you're curious, there is a clip that, shall we say, shows a bit of Deen's biscuits on display to the crowd.

Kotb then proceeded to show examples of the silly Internet meme, including Deen riding Charlie Sheen mid-rant, Natalie Portman as she appears in 'Black Swan' and late-night host Jimmy Fallon.

Paula Deen Flirts with Craig Ferguson on 'Late Late'When Food Network staple Paula Deen and Craig Ferguson cooked together on 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), dirty talk seemed to be an active ingredient.

"I like it when you talk dirty," said the host. She drawled, "And we do that before I come out [on stage]. He comes to my room, and we talk dirty."

Robot sidekick Geoff contributed to the suggestive conversation, too. At one point, Deen leaned in to Ferguson and asked, "Is he, like, a pervert?" The host answered, "No, no. He's not like a pervert, Paula, he is a pervert."

After receiving a compliment from Rachael Ray on her looks, celebrity chef Paula Deen chalks up her appearance to good makeup, then laments the fact men can't enjoy the transformative power of makeup as well. This, however, didn't stop Deen from once making up her young son Jamie, she said on 'The Rachael Ray Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Deen, who says her two sons were "beautiful" when they were children, laughingly admits to Ray that she once curled one son's hair and applied mascara to his eyelashes. Hey, it's a mother's right, isn't it?

Paula Deen Pulls Things out of Her Bra on 'The View'Award-winning chef Paula Deen appeared on the latest episode of 'The View' (weekdays, 11AM ET on ABC) and talked about, of all things, her breasts. First, she pulled her silicone breast enhancers out of her bra. And after that... things started to get weird.

The conversation moved on to a general discussion of older female breasts. "If I took off my bra, it would look like two wet socks with rocks in 'em," Deen said. Meanwhile, Whoopi Goldberg called her breasts "Snoopys." "... Because they're long, and they've got the Snoopy nose at the end." At one point Goldberg said, "Okay. I'm just so messed up by all of this." We agree, Whoopi. We agree.

Paula Deen's Getting Sued, Y'all

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 23rd 2010 6:45PM
Paula DeenShe may seem like America's sweet, down home cooking mama, but at least one grumpy Gus out there sees her as Tony Soprano's mother, at least if you read the lawsuit filed against her and her company.

Celebrity Chef Tours filed a $40 million lawsuit against the TV cook and her sons for what appears to be a breach of contract dispute.

Apparently, she was supposed to go on a 10-city tour but the promoter claims she pulled the plug on it at the last minute. The promoter also took issue with some of the "language" she used in her promotional videos, claiming they were loaded with "profanity and sexual innuendo." Did one of her tour stops include a visit to Russell Simmons' "Def Cooking Jam"?

What the y'all? Someone throws a ham at Paula Deen

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 23rd 2009 5:01PM
This is no way to wish Paula Deen a Happy Thanksgiving.

At an event in Atlanta this morning, someone threw a ham and it hit Deen right in the face. Now, I'm not sure if they did it deliberately, it seems more like they were shipping/packaging hams and she didn't know it was going to be thrown to her. You can hear someone say "oh my God" in this clip and catch a quick glimpse of her husband as she walks off camera. She's fine though. (Update: I embedded new video.)

What You Missed Last Night: Garry Shandling "helps" Paula Deen

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 28th 2009 2:36PM
Whenever a celebrity cook appears on a talk show like The Late Show or The Tonight Show, it's hardly ever a real cooking demonstration. Letterman will start drinking cooking sherry right out of the bottle or Conan will just go nuts and spread butter all over something he shouldn't.

Last night was particularly crazy, as Conan, Garry Shandling, and Andy Richter helped Paula Deen make... something for Halloween. It gets kinda hectic so I'm not sure what it was.
