It's easy to forget news once others things start happening in the world, but it feels like Paula Deen is the exception to that rule: people are OBSESSED with her downfall story!
They're so obsessed that even Paula knows it — and she's gone into hiding because of it, allegedly refusing to answer calls or emails from anyone but her closest friends and family members!
Here's what a friend of Paula's said:
“Paula is saying that she can no longer trust anyone. She feels like everyone has turned their back on her and she is frightened that anything she might say or do will be sold to the press and taken out of context. She has decided to go away to a secret location and take some time to think about both her future and her past. She is still angry but is starting to understand what happened and why. She has also increased her security.”
It's not really a secret location if a bunch of increased security is around! LOLz!
Here's what another source says:
“Before Paula sits down in front of the cameras again, she needs time away from the circus. She needs time for everyone to calm down. You need a little distance between you and a crisis before you have a clear head. I think what Paula is doing now is exactly right. She should have done this before.”
It sounds like she's doing this for the right reasons! We hope she can emerge a changed woman — one who takes responsibility instead of blaming transgression on the past!
