“I feel like ’embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name,” Paula Dean tells People magazine this week. “It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying.”
She really has no clue when she’s being offensive, does she? As one Towleroad commenter said: “Paula… whenever you feel the need to utter the words ‘gay’ or ‘black’ just stick a stick of butter in your mouth. You won’t regret it.” (via E!)
And just for good measure: Here’s a must-see pic of Paula chugging a bottle of tequila just prior to her cooking demo at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival.
