Paula Deen isn’t all about the sugar – she’s a little bit of spice, too.
In a video obtained by the New York Post, southern cook Paula Deen is shown cursing up a storm in a “blooper reel” that was at the center of a legal controversy between the chef and the Celebrity Chefs Tour group.
The two-minute reel was reportedly given to organizers of the tour, and intended to be an introduction to a series of live cooking events where Deen would appear in 10 cities across the nation.
But Deen allegedly backed out of the tour and subsequently sued the group for a bounced check. The company countersued Deen for $40 million. In the video, Deen is reportedly shown to drop F bombs and curse repeatedly, though in a joking manner. It is a combination of outtakes from her Food Network show that never made it into the television program.
According to the Post, which broke the story:
The queen of Southern cuisine curses up a cordon bleu streak in a “blooper reel” — dropping the swear words “motherf—ers” and “shee–t” as often as she drops lard and bacon grease in her frying pan…
She even pretends to perform a sex act on a chocolate eclair shortly before declaring, “My a– ain’t pretty no more!”
“We found it to be unacceptable because it’s certainly not family content,” Celebrity Chefs Tour organizer Gary Ravet told the Post. “We wouldn’t play something like that for a live audience.”
The matter was settled out of court last week for an undisclosed sum.
