My brain hurts...Carla Hall on Pauler Deen's show Saturday

Can't...stand...Pauler. The y'alls and the fact she makes "grits" a two-syllable word make me crazy.

But I love Carla.

So I watched. Although I'm not sold on chicken fried lamb, it actually didn't look too bad.

Carla will do well on "The Chew", I think. She has a great TV presence.

    I was actually in the hospital when this episode was on, and I swear the over-accented twangs rudely awakened me out of my narcotic-induced stupor. And not in a good way.

    And I"m a fan of Carla, but goodness, it was like two cats fighting in an alley.

            That site is hilarious. I'd try any of those games, but would probably pass out half way through the show.

                Yep, but my drink of choice is Jameson's neat. I guess if I switched to Miller Lite I'd be ok ;)

        I remember when I actually liked Paula Deen, before the fame, before the metamorphasis to a caricature of an obnoxious southern stereotype, before she discovered the cash cow that is: Pauler Deen, whack job. She was actually quite charming on Door Knock Dinners.

          Agreed. Her Southern drawl used to be charming. Now it is a parody of itself.

            Me too. I remember thinking how inspiring her story was and how charming her sons were -- even how delicious (if too rich for everyday) and homey her food looked -- but now she couldn't be more absurd if she were an SNL character. Sigh.
