Sorry, Paula Deen and Bubba, but you are NOT allowed to seal those court documents that reveal Bubba's “past treatment for drug and alcohol addiction."
Honestly, at this point we feel like they should just get on with it! There can't be much more in those docs that could further ruin a tarnished reputation, so why can't we just get into the courtroom and settle this shizz??
It doesn't look like that's going to happen soon, because Paula finds it necessary to trip things up every step of the way, even when rulings are going to go against her — like trying to
This whole scandal keeps getting crazier!!
Paula Deen scrambled to get a judge to stop her own lawyer from having to provide testimony in the sexual harassment/racial discrimination lawsuit she's drowning in, but the judge actually ruled in FAVOR of having her lawyer deposed!
This means that Paula's attempt at saying that everything lawyer James P. Gerard knows falls under client confidentiality has been SHUT DOWN!
Bobby Deen's still getting opportunities on the Food Network, regardless of having an alleged racist mother in Paula Deen, who was ripped from their programming and had her contract promptly NOT renewed!
Because what's better than looking like you don't enjoy the company of an alleged racist (even MORE alleged as of late!) on your programming, but planning to use that alleged racist's son to boost ratings for the Iron Chef??
Here's what Jamie Deen, his brother, said on Twitter:
Paula Deen's longtime cook has just come out with MORE racism allegations!
Wait, why isn't Paula Deen's cook Paula Deen? Did Paula Deen just drop the racist dime on herself??
LOLz! Nope! She DOES have a cook running her restaurant, Lady & Sons, and her name is Dora Charles! You'd have to be a pretty good cook to be a famous cook's cook. Though, that begs the question: why isn't Dora Charles more famous than Paula??
Anyway, despite their close relationship (be it professional or friendly), Dora says Paula used racial slurs and treated her (along with other employees) in a prejudiced or even racist way!
At least, we think it's in protest! We're not really sure, because we don't think it's either a clever OR good idea, and there's gotta be a better way to show your distaste (how about an ACTUAL boycott) without having to send trash to people!
But common sense isn't really stopping Paula Deen's fans from sending butter wrappers to all the places that severed ties with her over the racist jokes, remarks, and requests that she's made in the past!
That is, if we're to believe the National Enquirer! Hey, stranger things have happened (they were the ones to break the N-word deposition)! LOLz!
According the reputable news source, Paula Deen and Michael Groover are both boarding the train to divorceville! Apparently Paula's scandal has rocked her life so hard that she's on her way to a $17 million divorce, with no prenup.
Major congratulations are in order for Paula Deen's son!
Bobby Deen is now married to one hell of a patient woman, one who is completely aware of the family she's becoming a part of — one wrought with scandal and legal troubles right now. But they're also rich. And she probably loves Bobby. We suppose love would be the most important thing then, wouldn't it?? Ha!
