A former employee at one of grease queen Paula Deen's restaurants is suing her for sexual harassment, with claims the workplace was racked with sexism and racism (oh and "inescapable pornography"). And to no one's surprise, today Deen's lawyers are saying the accusations by Lisa Jackson are false and released a statement, reading: "She has made baseless, inflammatory allegations, threatening to go to the press and ruin Paula Deen's reputation and the reputation of her businesses unless we paid her a large sum of money... We refused to bow to that kind of pressure and refused to pay money to address false claims." Game on.
