Paula Deen Wire

pauladeencoool.jpgBeleaguered ex-Food Network star and PR nightmare Paula Deen landed a cover interview in this week's issue of People magazine. And of course she said things that are being seen as maybe racist. The full story's not online, but The Wrap has quotes in which she relates to football player Michael Sam: "I feel like 'embattled' or 'disgraced' will always follow my name. It's like that black football player who recently came out... He said, 'I just want to be known as a football player. I don't want to be known as a gay football player.' I know exactly what he's saying." [The Wrap]
