Get ready to be shocked, y’all!
Celebrity chef Paula Deen has confessed to using the N-word on several occasions and making racist comments, during a May 17 video-taped deposition, according to reports by The National Enquirer and other media outlets.
In addition to discussing how she once wanted black waitresses to play the role of slaves at a wedding party she was planning, the 66-year-old also revealed family secrets about her brother’s drug, alcohol and pornography addictions.
The deposition comes during a $1.2 million lawsuit, in which one of Deen’s restaurant managers, Lisa Jackson, is suing the TV star for discrimination.
Despite the damaging confessions, Huffpost reports a representative for Deen denies the famous chef is racist or means any harm, saying “Contrary to media reports, Ms. Deen does not condone or find the use of racial epithets acceptable.”

Additionally, an insider revealed that “While Paula and Bubba did make some pretty damaging confessions in their depositions, what they admitted to only scratches the surface of what actually goes on in their daily lives.”
While the famous chef has certainly been embroiled in controversies in the past, this could be the nail in the coffin that spells the end for the star’s $17 million business empire.
