Food Network Celebrity Chef and well loved CURVY southern gal’ Paula Deen has fixed her self a big pot of “uh oh” in court Wednesday morning. The 66-year old butter loving mother is currently facing a pending sexually harassment law suit filed by a former employee of her Paula’s Oyster House restaurant in Georgia according to TMZ.
Deen has been accused by the employee of making racist, sexist and generally inappropriate comments to the woman. Sounds like somebody is looking at some serious charges if found guilty. But that’s not the worst part! The site has some very interesting highlights from the trail that morning that are worth checking out. Many may have a different feel for our girl Paula after they read what she said to the courtroom while under oath!
Last year Lisa Jackson, a formal general manager of the restaurant, filed a $1.2 million dollar lawsuit against Deen who’s rep says that she’s “just trying to ruin Paula’s reputation unless they bow down and pay her a large some of money”. Yea,$1.2 million is a lot of money! Lisa also claims that Paula brother, Bubby Heirs, also sexually assaulted her. Crazy right?
Read a few of the highlights from the trial below and see for yourselves!
Lawyer: Have you ever used the N-word yourself?
Paula: Yes, of course.
Lawyer: Okay. In what context?
Paula: Well, it was probably when a black man burst into the bank that I was working at and put a gun to my head.
Lawyer: Okay. And what did you say?
Paula: Well, I don’t remember, but the gun was dancing all around my temple … I didn’t — I didn’t feel real favorable towards him.
Lawyer: Okay. Well, did you use the N-word to him as he pointed a gun in your head at your face?
Paula: Absolutely not.
Lawyer: Well, then, when did you use it?
Paula: Probably in telling my husband.
Lawyer: Okay. Have you used it since then?
Paula: I’m sure I have, but it’s been a very long time
