Paula Deen: My Ancestors Were Slave Owners

| Filed under: TV NewsPaula Deen

Paula Deen Slavery

Paula Deen was on the finale of Who Do You Think You Are?, a show about taking famous people and tracing their history and lineage.

What she found wasn't so palatable for her: some of her ancestors were slave owners.

She had no idea, and has been asserting for years that she never came from such horrible things:

"I had said so many times that my family was never involved in slavery. It is horrific and it is sad. I almost feel like somebody took a bucket of cold water and threw it into my face."

Love or hate Paula Deen (or sit firmly anywhere in between), this episode showed a strong reaction and attachment to family and heritage.

We like it best when Paula is being sincere and raw, and unfortunately it feels like those times are few and far between nowadays… so this episode was a nice distraction from all that controversy she's been sitting in.
