She's baaaaaaack y'all!!
Paula Deen made her first public appearance this weekend at the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show in Houston after facing a damaging racial discrimination lawsuit that was eventually dropped.
But despite all of the controversy, the celebrity chef got a big taste of Southern hospitality as she was met with a standing ovation from the Texas crowd of 1,400!
Paula couldn't hide her emotions as the waterworks began to flow and she thanked the crowd, saying:

Looking good, Aretha!
Just in time for her special tribute at Sunday night's Grammys, Aretha Franklin was spotted sitting in the second row with Rev. Jesse Jackson at the Detroit Pistons basketball game in Auburn Hills, Michigan Friday night.
This is one of her first appearances since her surgery last December.
When asked how she was doing, Aretha said she was "feeling really great" and plans to reschedule the shows that she had to cancel due to her surgery.
In fact, looks like her first show will at Radio City Music Hall in May!
That's fantastic news! Glad you're doing well, bb!

Welcome back, David! Good to see you out there again!
David Arquette attended Spike TV's Scream Awards 2010, which marked his first public appearance since the Courteney breakup.
Looks like he should pretty busy promoting Scream 4 from here on out.
Let's just hope it's not TOO awkward for him, given the fact that Courteney is likely to be involved.
Are U happy to see David Arquette out and about again? Do U think he's been dealing with the breakup well?
