I wonder how much $$ Paula Deen has going out vs. coming in now?
Paula knew she was going to be lambasted for her promotion of the fatty foods years after being diagnosed with the beetus only to turn around and be a paid spokesperson for a Pharmaceutical company. I wonder why she and Bubba boy did not settle this lawsuit to minimize the damage to her brand. Arrogance?
It would seem so since she had the nerve to cry about her poor grandad losing all his slaves after the war that poor dear! and telling her so-called friend "get up here we can't see you in the dark" or whatever nonsense she said. Her reverence for the ways of the old south speak to the true character of Paula Deen. A carpet bagger she aint! She only wants to keep things the way the were getting rich of the backs of others, paying her catering staff in alcohol??! WTF the lady has no morals to speak of.
Anyway, just wondering if she will file bankruptcy, I bet the drug company dumps her next.
Paula is in big trouble.
Hope she invested her money wisely cause it's all over now.
For now, she's losing the big obvious sources of income. But she still has her businesses, including her tourist trap trough in Savannah. People who spend money on Paula Deen are not going to stop because she's a racist.
Her business income will let her have a rather comfy life. Her investment income will let her continue the lifestyle she's accustomed to (deep-fried Crisco balls infused with insulin) and, before you know it, Rupert Murdoch will hire her as a professional victim.
Her husband is very wealthy, she will be fine.
I hope that when Paula Deen dies she goes to hell and is forever taunted by black diabetic demons with pitchforks.
I read somewhere that she was paid $6 million by the drug company
She personally will be fine, but there's no way she can keep her business operations at their current level with all the lost endorsements and contract revenue, and being dropped from sponsorships. She'll probably have to cut back on planned projects (including unannounced ones) and maybe even cut back on staff / employees, and her income will definitely take a hit.
Novo-disk drug company has dropped her.
Three days ago, there were some companies willing to stick with her, but every day, more and more is coming out about her regular use of the n-word so everyone is moving away from any connection to the bitch. Her deep fried butter-kabobs will no longer play in flyover country.
I can't wait to see her digging in the ground with her bare hands to find a rotted carrot.
Well she's lost quite a bit so far, including the drug company, the Food Network, and a couple of others. But I read somewhere that she was worth $17 Million and I find that hard to believe. I would think she's worth much more than that.
I don't think her magazine will survive. The main thing is, she has to get off the front pages. She needs to disappear. Shut up and go away. Her sons, need to stop the defense tour. I understand they want to defend their mom. Fine, they did that. Now get back to work. There's a brand to protect and grow.
If I was advising her right now that's what I'd tell her. Frankly she's as much an embarrassment to the "new" South as she is to the rest of us. They like to cover up their racism with a bit more finesse. Bobby is adorable. He will be part of the recovery process.
She made 17 million just last year...
She will be fielding unfair labor practice lawsuits for years to come. Her corporations will be bankrupted. I wish she could be held personally liable for some of this shit.
She should head down to Punta del Este and rent a McMansion next to Ken Lay where she can lay low for a year or two.
She has enough money for 20 lifetimes.
Her Sanvannah restaurant is attracting patrons now because of all the media hoopla, but once that settles down, and she's no longer on TV everyday, the crowds will dwindle. It has bad food anyway.
The big question is whether the Cooking Channel will keep the Deen boys on their roster? Bobby Deen is pretty much the face of the Cooking Channel.
My friend was a fan MANY years ago and went to her restaurant and said it was nasty as hell. It's one of those nasty buffet places where the tour buses park and large tourist groups go in.
Bobby Deen is the face of the Cooking Channel? They are in worse shape than I thought!
[quote]I read somewhere that she was worth $17 Million and I find that hard to believe.
Chump change. Many actors make that much with one or two movies
I guess I'll post this again.
Her new bk is #1 on Amazon and #7 on Barnes and Noble.....
what's that we like to say about the right and going overboard.
AND, publicity whore Jesse Jackson just said he will help Paul revamp her image. I trust she gave him a generous donation.
Her new book is # 1 in the best sellers
I'm sure she's set for life. She's been making many millions of dollars each and every year. Sure, the gravy train is now ending, but that isn't going to hurt her personal fortune much.

I think it was a radish.

Absolutely disgusting if true. For this alone, people shouldn't be defending her.
Are some really so concerned about her being allowed to say "nigger" that you overlook not only the treatment of her employees, but the fact that she pushed a harmful diet, lied about what it did to her (and what it would do to fans), then profited off of the meds that she and no doubt her fat fuck fans would also have to go on... and in the case of some, without the benefit of affording it.
Some of you are so damn delusional. 17 million is not chump change.
Ms. R18 would be jumping for joy if he won 17 dollars from a scratch off.
What's disgusting is drug companies hiring celebrity spokespeople. They're fucking shameless.
Wow, Jesse Jackson's "agreed" to help Paula revamp her image? How much you think that is worth? Next will be Al Sharpton too.
[quote]Ms. [R18] would be jumping for joy if he won 17 dollars from a scratch off.
No shit, I sure would! But I'm a "regular Joe" - not a celebrity. For someome with multiple TV shows, books and endorsement deals, 17 mil *is* chump change.
Her net worth was WAY lower than I thought it would be, seeing that her show is on ALL the friggin' time.
It's not much because she's got two growing boys to feed!
Lord knows they can't do shit on their own.
If she was smart (and given her actions, that's debatable), she'd slam the brakes on now. Sell all but her main home, fire the bulk of her staff (insert joke here) and cut her expenses down as far as possible.
Yes, she has a ton of money in the bank, but I bet she's spending like she thought the good times would never end. Time to get sensible, Paula. Whatcha got is all there's ever gonna be. It is what it is. Figure out how many years you've got left until your heart gives out, divide that into what's in your savings account. That's your yearly budget. Spend accordingly, cuz you'd be shocked at what food stamps don't cover.
All this because a Sicilian dropped a lawsuit on her... I miss the good ol days when Sicilians extorted cash by being in the mafia and cut out the middle men jewish lawyers
Luckily, Paula isn't a professional athlete. She's got plenty of money and will die with plenty of money.
I'm sure she'll be fine, and I bet you ten bucks she has a new cooking show within the year. It won't be on Food Network, but maybe Faux wants a cooking show, or a "Christian" channel, or a country music station.
Face it, this whole mishegas has only increased her appeal to the white conservative demographic.
If your talking financial tender, it's probably big. If you're talking consumed buckets of chicken tenders, she'll be bankrupt in a week.
She should just keep protesting this til she's blue in the face- simultaneously promoting her new cookbook. Then when she's marched in all the civil rights parades; stood in front of the Atlanta Baptist Choir and sang "Go Tell It On The Mountain"; established the Paula Deen Scholarship For At-Risk Youth; and opened a school for girls in Nigeria... just go away.
That way the blacks won't stalk her for the rest of her life.
Is the food at Miss Wilke's Boarding House better than at Lady & Sons?
Her royalties from her cookbooks alone is over $2 million annually. She's super rich and isn't going broke anytime soon.
"I can't wait to see her digging in the ground with her bare hands to find a rotted carrot.'
Oh honey, carrots are roots and you can imagine how many times she used the 'N' word the last time she saw Roots.
r37, apples and oranges. When you go into Mrs Wilkes place you are seated at a big table with 8 to 10 strangers. They place the veggies on the table and you pass them around and serve yourself. Paula's place is just a restaurant. And like many fried chicken recipes in the south, Paula's is way too salty.
And speaking of salty, I'm sure Paula has salted away enough money to live well for the rest of her life, no matter what. She will survive this, and thrive.
I wish Chris Rock would weigh in on this topic...
Does Chick-Fil-A need a new spokesmodel?
Is it wrong that I haven't given her thought?
(Yes. I'm aware of there being a scandal. But I'm just so delighted by the strikedown of DOMA that I haven't been concerned about the Paula Deen racism scandal.)
I'll be more than happy to comfort Bobby. He's a hot, muscular, bubble-butted, big biceped stud.
She ought to just put on a white sheet and start marking herself as the Queen of the KKK.
Her book is tops on amazon!!
What's wrong with the "N" word? Blacks use it all the time
Exactly r47, and all the black people I know would jump at the chance to play slaves at a rich white person's wedding. They're not going to pass up the opportunity to commemorate that glorious time in their history, when white people gave them all the free food they could eat, and only made them work the fields from dawn to midnight for it.
R48, YEAH we know how hard black people work LMAO
Oh please, R48. We're talking about house slaves here, not field slaves.
Right r50, that makes it so much better.
This thread has attracted freepers like flies to shit.
She's vile, but I'm still wondering how exactly this confidential deposition got out.
Shouldn't someone be in trouble for leaking it?
Paula Deen has more than enough money to last through the rest of her life.
Along with income from her cookbooks and other business ventures, she has a lucrative kitchenware business.
I was joking, dumbass at R51. "[W]hite people gave them all the free food they could eat, and only made them work the fields from dawn to midnight for it" is why I clarified that Paula Deen's servers would have been house slaves.
A friend was a docent at an antebellum plantation, and from some literature she gave me I know there was a distinction between the two.
The deposition wasn't confidential, R52. It is part of the public court record.
Prerelease orders for her new cookbook have made it the No. 1 book on Amazon.
She will now be a national heroine of the teabaggers.
HA HA HA go Paula!!! She is gay friendly unlike MOST blacks
They are standing in line to get into her restaurants in Georgia, including many black people. Paula will survive this while those that punished her might not look so smart.
Why would they drop her book? They could have just declined to promote it.
R61, they dropped her for the same reason everyone else dropped her. She hurts their brand. It would sour everything else they do to be associated with racism. She should try the 700 Club, Chic A Filet, Hobby Lobby, and the Republican Party.
r60 indeed. r62 this is actually helping Paula!!! ha ha ha PC idiot
R63, the book publisher already knew that information when they dropped her. That's how poisonous she is. She'd lose them more money in the long run than the temporary spike in sales could offset.
Time will tell bOY!!
Oh how shocking that fat people are waiting to get into her feedlot.
So a day that ends in "y"?
I wanna suck Jamie Deen's dick.
JESUS, the amount of refuck trolls on this thread (and on all of the Trayvon Martin ones) is making Datalounge look like Stormfront.
EAT SHIT AND DIE, RACIST REPIG CUNTS!!!
Jesse Jackson is a greedy attention whore.
Feeling a little stressed out, r68?
r68, Oh Mary I be eatin too many collard greens. Blacks can be so sensitive you know!!
so, she self publishes and makes a tidy sum....
kind of like what Mel Gibson did with Passion of the Christ.
r72, yeah ha ha ha
I have never been a fan of this woman , who is an unhappy combo of stupidity and calculation. Much like Rachel Ray. They only demonstrate that the lowest common denominator often rises to great success.
Sadly, her following of stupid racist fans is quite loyal. So she's not going anywhere.
It's been reported that Gibson personally made upwards of 300 million on that movie.
She will be opening "Deenville" a food themed park with rides, and of course food stands.
The "Stick O' Butter" ride will drawn thousands.
Does anyone know how much money she has going out? Running an empire is expensive and I'm sure she supports that entire family, including the brother. Does she live a lavish lifestyle? Also, in the deposition, Lisa Jackson said that she was hailed by Bubba as the 'little Jew Girl' for turning around the failing business. Maybe that was just one restaurant location but it points to bad management.
Maybe she'll go into porn. She can get pretty raunchy on her evening shows. I saw a couple and was repulsed by all the innuendo and double entendre. She's a coarse, crude old gal who prolly likes her whiskey neat. Well, maybe with a sprig of mint and a dollop of sugar in it.
[quote]Does she live a lavish lifestyle?
There is a picture of her in a full length chinchilla coat.
Too bad-I was looking forward to seeing pictures of all the fat republican sweatshirt wearing fraus lined up at her book signing.
She has a white trash sensibility so her level of extravagance is not what your level of extravagance might be.
DL isn't loading for me. I just get threads I've posted in and nothing else.
WTF is going on?
