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.

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:
