    It's a transparent PR move: divorce this guy and marry a black man so we'll believe she's not racist anymore. Or even better, a black woman.

      Awwwwww looking at the picture it's like Mr. and Mrs. Claus are getting divorced.

        "Well, we haven't talked about Paula Deen lately...." And couldn't we keep it that way? (grin) PS Love your Corgi!

          Damn, Firegoat, that was one hilarious article.
          Is it my imagination, or does Groover look Japanese?
          All told, I think Paula Deen has had a really bad Hair Year in 2013.
          Chances are things will turn around for her in 2014.

              I don't think Paula would put that banana in her mouth either. :-(

                She would if it was deep fried.

              Team Deen says this is absolutely not true. Her new PR team is definitely on the ball.

                I don't know if any of the divorce talk is true or not, but I do know that in public, Groover acted the perfect gentleman while Deen was a b**ch on wheels.

                    My take on the story was that they had a big fight, he stormed out of the house for a few hours to cool down, and then eventually they worked it out or at least did not make any decisions about leaving, breaking up, divorcing, etc.

                      Not to sound judgmental or shallow, but how the hell is he turning tricks on the side?

                        Watched a total of three minutes of Miss Dean's show......once.
                        Not much into what 'low information' viewers find worth watching.
                        I rather spend the time in a more mentally challenging way. Like picking lint off the carpet.

                        "getting some sweet Walmart tail on the sly ." A statement that is simultaneously hysterical and repugnant.

                          Got to love an article that considers the enquirer a source.

                            Well, they got the John Edwards' mistress story correct, along with the Gary Hart mistress story, that OJ Simpson had a pair of designer shoes he claims to never have had (shoe prints at the murder scene), Tiger Woods' extramarital affairs, Jesse Jackson's love child, Rush Limbaugh's addiction to OxyContin, and a few other things.

                            I'm not saying they're a serious news organization - far from it! But they *have* gotten some things right. Along with a LOT of things wrong, as well.

                            And no - I don't read it. I just remember the John Edwards mistress story and Googled.

                              I've got to say this much, even a jerk like me, lost a little hope in mankind when the John Edwards mistress & baby story proved true.

                                Well if you try out thousands and thousands of stories eventually you are going to get a few right.

                              That is the nastiest POS example of writing I have seen in a long time. So thanks for a wasted 3 seconds to scan it. I should have known better than to click on a post with this title. *shiver"

                                  …yes. But we're talking about Paula Deen here.

                                  What's more trailer trash than Paula Deen and The Enquirer? Made for each other!

                                  I am no Paula Deen apologist, but that just seemed cheap and over the top. And juvenile. Not to my taste
