To say Paula Deen has been in the middle of a PR nightmare after admitting to using the N-word would be a bit of an understatement!
So Paula decided to hire an extra hand to help with her damaged image and went for the best: Kerry Washington!
Ok, ok. So she actually hired PR "fixer" Olivia Pope, who inspired Kerry's character in the show Scandal and has worked with high-profile figures like Monica Lewinsky and Michael Vick!
Although we're not sure if ANYONE can really help with Paula's image at this point, it's probably not a bad idea for her to recruit all of the help she can get!
