According to our friends over at Ministry of Gossip, celebrity Food Network chef and television personality Paula Deen is being sued for $40 million dollars. What’s the reason? In the words of MOG writer Christie D’Zurilla: “cussing on the job and, um, not cooking very much.”

Maybe Deen is finally realizing that this new healthcare bill’s calorie counting measures might not be so friendly toward those butter-filled, though totally delicious, recipes from the South. After all, imagine if she had to add nutrition facts to the recipes on her website? I would be cussing too.


Then again, she survived that ham in the face in November. I think she’ll most likely come out unscathed, saying ‘more butter, y’all.’
