She is actually from Albany, so she has a completely different accent than a native Savannah accent. Most accents in Georgia are different than in Savannah.

I DO think she is fake, not to mention a TERRIBLE excuse for a cook. No one in their right mind would put that much unhealthy ingredients into their food. Her son that has the Not my Mama's cookin' By Bobby Dean is the one to listen to. And you know? He doesn't have that annoying made up accent. I would wager off camera she has a normal accent.

Anyways. I find it interesting that she was diagnosed with Type2 diabetes, which is brought on by unhealthy lifestyle, eating. She was diagnosed three years before she came out with it, so she was still plugging the unhealthiness, makes me really not put her on the list of watch and learn from. She is also a paid spokes person for a pharmaceutical company, that manufactures Type 2 Diabetes medication. Time to quit your fallacies Miss Deen and come clean with us. Quit being a fake and be real, I WILL listen to you, if you will show some care for yourself and others.

I, too, cannot stand to listen to Paula Deen anymore... she is as fake as Dolly Parton's tits... when her restaurant was over by the court house, my colleagues and I used to have lunch there frequently and she did NOT have that whiny, nasal twang then.
Her current restaurant is crap and the wait is no longer justified... it does'nt shine a light to one formerly near the court house. The buffet sucks, the desserts are given to you now (not like the formerly scrumptious dessert bar !) and she's not there to visit with the folks that have helped her rise to where she is now.
I, too, agree that she (or her handlers) have created a personna to pander to what some folks think of as the "typical" Southern personality.
The comments here have nothing to do with the "haves" and the "have nots" as you contend...
Paula Deen's voice doesnt sound all that nasal to me. However, a lot of Northerners I hear sound very very nasal. Im from Virginia, and I say y'all quite a bit. I realize that Paula Deen hypes up her "accent" from time to time, but shes not the only person guilty of this. Wanna bet Sarah Palin does the same thing? Southerners talk slower than Northerners , and its just how we are raised. There are Lord knows how many different dialects in the South (Virginia has 6 alone that I know of ). I myself some times slip into a deeper drawl, but I'm not conscious of it. Its not "putting it on", its just a normal reflex. Today's Southerners (my age espiecally) soundl as southern as people from California or Ohio. Paula Deen has a trace of a Southern accent, and everyone jumps all over her for it.

If you pay attention to early episodes, her accent is much tamer.

I am from Savannah, now living in Arkansas for the past three yrs. When I moved here a few people told me, you don't sound a thing like paula deen. My response was neither does anybody else in Savannah. But it is really fun to tell jokes using her accent and yes I have to force it.

Dude, You are truly bored, CLOSED MINDED and just sad! You're comments aren't thoughtful. You aren't even focusing on the topic. You're too busy accusing the people you're judging & being defensive.

That being said, I looked up this topic b/cz I just saw a P. Deen commercial & noticed the accent. I immediately thought it was extremely exaggerated! She is commercialized & her food, Southern or not, is VERY unhealthy & there should be a disclaimer saying "may cause diabetes". I mean, she has it, but instead of changing hers ways, she'd rather get wealthier by promoting a drug that does nothing a/b the problem. Stop cooking, eating & pushing s*** that will kill you.

Yeh, what a great example of s southern woman. By the way, I'm southern too...(& still offended).

I don't see any thing wrong with how she talks if your really from savannah and your country you will sound like that too? Her way of talking is because she is real southern country although I'm not a huge fan. I talk as country as her and it's not fake :)

I'm not gonna read all of these posts because I have better things to do. But I got here by 'Googling' "Paula Deen is a fake." I was born n' raised in N. GA, Forsyth County to be exact, and I'll tell ya, she doesn't represent anyone here. I have an accent and can't get as country as anybody, BUT - I do NOT use y'all as a filler word. My mama cooks better than Paula Deen ever did. She's an over-the-top sellout.

So, what's the latest word on the lawsuit out of Uncle Bubba's? I read the court documents online for that one, and the first thing that went through my mind was, "I knew it!" I've always thought she could go trailer park in a minute... strikes me as one of those mouthy old women who cooks with a Marlboro dangling from their lips, dropping ashes into everything. Met her son Bobby once, and he sounded normal. I'd say ole Paula turns that accent on like a light when the cameras roll up and the lights go on.

I think she needs to be sued or held accountable for her contributions to the bulging waistlines of her loyal customers/fanatics. She knew she was diabetic but continued pushing her fat foods knowing full well that eating her dishes could/would contribute to health problems.

She's made millions flaunting her dishes and hence has had the money for the best in treatment options whereas her victims bellies keep growing and growing.

Shame on her y'all

Her accent just gets on my nerves, she's putting it on thick as can be and it also makes her sound incredibly uneducated. Who the heck says Y'all anyway 15 times in one sentence??? I cannot stand to listen to her. In addition, in spite of her diabetes diagnosis, she eats like a cow on TV and still makes incredibly unhealthy recipes. She has no credibility in my book as a cook, heck, anyone can thrown a pound of butter into any recipe and have it taste good. I look forward to the day she's no longer on TV... She should take her fake accent, her fake hair and her fake teeth and retire!!!

I'm completely Southern and I hate her accent. She started out with a mild accent, went to a sort-of hick (fake)accent, and now she uses more of an Augusta/South Carolina fake accent. Maddening to true Southerners.
