Paula Deen is no stranger to controversy, but that hasn't stopped her from expanding her empire!
This is a bit bigger than her going on tour though, like we previously mentioned.
She's getting her own digital network!! Holy
guacamole butter sticks!
Paula released a statement that read:
Paula Deen has been cooking up a treat… and it's not in the kitchen!
Paula Deen Ventures just made the big announcement:
Paula is going on tour!!
Yuppers, Paula Deen, queen of Southern cuisine, will be heading out on a 20-show nationwide tour.
The tour is called Paula Deen Live! and it's going to be a 90-minute, interactive show with all sorts of
Oh, Paula Deen. Trouble just always seems to have a way of finding you!
The celebrity chef's Savannah, Georgia restaurant Uncle Bubba's Seafood & Oyster House (AKA the place where this whole racism fiasco began) is closed down for good!
Now this might not seem too surprising considering all of the controversy surrounding Paula, but some people who were shocked happened to be the employees who had NO idea the restaurant

Are we surprised? No, that's exactly how we'd figure someone like that would operate!

Instead, she's going to burn through
