Paula Deen's son, Jamie, has just won the award for understatement of the century: he said that last summer was a "tough" one… because of the whole racism scandal thing.

According to him, though, it made his family grow closer!

He's talking about it now because Paula's about to try and re-enter the public spotlight, having both her eponymous cruise line launching January 18, and a book signing scheduled in February!

Here's what Jamie said:

'It was a tough summer, but it’s made us stronger as a family … We are good members of the community and our attitude is to learn from our mistakes and go forward. She’s always been true to herself and she can really brighten up someone’s week just by spending time with them. She’s authentic.

'We look forward to getting back to work and persevering…We are going to have a big year in 2014!'

We guess only time — and whether or not people are keen on forgiving and forgetting — will tell!

Her cruise is scheduled to head to heading to San Juan, St Thomas and St Maarten. Her book signing will be in Buffalo, NY.
