ALBANY — The media firestorm that threatened to topple celebrity chef and Albany native Paula Deen's vast empire has done little to dampen the enthusiasm of the group planning the Paula Deen & Sons Museum in her hometown.
Celebrity chef Paula Deen has hired new lawyers from an internationally known firm to defend her in a well publicized employment discrimination lawsuit, according to court filings.
American celebrity chef Paula Deen, who was dropped by TV's Food Network after she admitted in a lawsuit that she used a racial slur in the past, will appear on NBC-TV's "Today" show on Wednesday after canceling a scheduled interview last week.
The Food Network said on Friday it would not renew U.S. celebrity chef Paula Deen's contract when it expires at the end of June, following revelations that the cooking star admitted to using a racial slur in the past.
It will include vegetable tortilla chips, flavored compound butter and sugar-free chocolates.
