I live in Savannah and i met her and i can sure tell you it is all a put on. When she is in the spot light she puts it on thick...otherwise she is almost shude...well that may be alittle over said too, but i dare say she is certainly not who she is on TV. Also when the Extreme makeover came to Sav. am i understanding that the complete Kitchen that was said to be donated from Paula was only for show on the program then quickly removed from the house. If thats true how sad to have so much money and take it all back hah...well goes to show...its all show..

I am proudly Georgian! I had never heard of the restaurant before she had that show in the first place. Her accent is like most of ours, we have a slight one, but love to entertain! Paula being an icon is not true, nor do we eat all of our food with all that extra fat. We would all need cardiac stints in our 20s if we did.

You're right! We Southerners don't need exaggerated and overacting on our television. The hunger and demand is for more programming like Duck Dynasty, Swamp People, WWF wrestlin',Honey Boo Boo, NASCAR racin', Dukes Of Hazzard reruns, and Monster Trucks.

Oh my God you people are crazy yes we do talk like that in Ga I'm from Ga and I talk just like Paula Dean I have also been to her restaurant and the food is so good all the way down to the fried chicken to the greens to the desserts and the sweet ice tea is to die for. You know if you don't like Paula that's fine don't go and eat at her restaurant but why do you have to have bad things to say about her? I'm sure she would never say anything bad about the way you talk and about your tits. I think there is enough blessings for all of us in this world and God will lead you to your blessing .I think if there is a person in the world no matter who it is that has made a good life for their selfs and their family you should be glad for them. Thank you Paula Dean you put Savannah on the map for good.

Sorry, but Savannah was already on the map - for beauty, for history, for architecture, for culture, and even for food. We didn't need Ms. Dean to represent. And frankly, it's embarrassing.

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 sorry, but Savannah does *not* equal country. Southern, yes; country, no. That's a myth she's perpetuated. Albany is not Savannah. In fact, it's closer in distance to Alabama.

I so agree ... Paula Dean is a FAT FAKE. The woman is not humble and is an oportunist. I "speed read" her first book while standing in a book store at the ATL airport on a long layover ... all about her depression and her "hard life" raising two sons alone and her agoraphobia. Poor Paula ... the helpless put-upon vict In her book, she discusses shopping for a Louie BATAN handbag ... LMAO ... she is as FAKE as can be. And the show when Fat Bubba took her to Paris and the 'Boys" showed up ... her fake crying and emotionalism was enough to make anyone puke. And now ... the entire family has "Di Vinci Veneers" ... their teeth look like big chicklet chewing gum tablets jammed in their mouths ... LMAO ... and the bitch plugs the dentist for his fine work in her magazine ... when she, the "boys" and Bubba got them free. Paula and the "family" are big time now but everyone falls from grace with the media eventually. She is one of the most disgusting creatures who ever walked the face of the earth (as she laughs her way to the bank) but ... she WILL crash and burn eventually if she does not die of a fatty embolism from all of the butter she pours into her fat face. PS: Rachel Ray, Ina Garten, Giada DiLaurentis, Bobby Flay, Tyler Florence and yes ... Martha Stewart "earned" their places in society by being humble and educated.
My goodness! You sure are an unhappy camper. What in the world could she have done to you to make you so angry? That was vicious.

Well I guess the cats out of the bag. I hope Paula put some money aside for a rainy day because she is being followed by one heck of a dark cloud. She should have sought professional advice before issuing her video statement. She apologized but didn't really address the issue that was so offensive. I wish her well, we all say dumb things we wish we could take back, but she doesn't seem to get it still.

Where did Paula deen get her recipe from? Mrs.Wilkes been around longer than Paula Deen and always had a line to go eat at her resturant. And the people who cooks at Mrs.Wikes is blacks people and thats what makes the food good. But where did Paula Deen get her recipe.All of a sudden she comes to Savannah like she got the best food in town.Black have always made whites lick their finger for black people cooking. It just that blacks could never open up their own resturant because they just wanted us to cook and use our recipes while they profit from it.And Paula Deen is just being good to blacks because it's their recipe that got her where she was she can't cook.She is a fake.

I think Paula is a fake also. She is certainly not a refined Southern lady. She acts like redneck "trailer trash" to me. I never could stand the phony laugh, or the "put on" accent. As her fortune goes down the drain, she is crying for herself.

Those comments don't mean they are jealous. She sounds like a complete dumb idiot because she's trying so hard to have a southern accent, which is embarrassing for the south. No one with a true southern accent sounds like they are faking it!
