    See,now that bothers me. The woman is/was crazy busy and this was her brothers place-not hers. I doubt she had time to know what hers was doing,much less his.
    I hear you; I may be remembering what the woman on the tour bus said incorrectly, but my vague recollection is that she helped him start it and continued to help him with its management and the like. But I understand where you are coming from; she also at the time was quite busy with filming her show in NYC (one of Gordon Elliott's properties, I think) -- they hadn't yet built the home in which she later filmed it actually in Savannah.

    There is no doubt those accusations are horrid and maybe she deserves what she gets. I guess it chaps me that she (a woman) get trashed more that Michael Vick or Lance Armstrong,IMO.
    Lance Armstrong has taken some mighty big lumps; isn't he barred forever from biking? Nike pulled out of his endorsements, LiveStrong dropped him...Vick did at the time also, though he continues to be able to play pro.

    These are my first thoughts too...assuming it's all true (and I'm not saying it's not) I am also amazed that this continued so long under the radar. I'm not saying I'm so naive to believe that discrimination doesn't still exist, but from someone so high-profile makes it even more shocking to me. It's like something out of the movie The Help. Which took place, what, 50 years ago?

    Yeah,he seems a giant AH.

    There is a large population of poor blacks in the Savannah area and the Coastal Empire in general and jobs are pretty hard to come by in that region as it is. I get the feeling that a lot of the employees who worked for the restaurants felt they had to keep those jobs in order to make ends meet and feared retaliation if they went forward.

    ...As for Bubba, Paula has probably had to cover for her brother for years on end and he's fucked up her brand quite a bit by her continuing to associate with him. Bubba is the common denominator, but Paula Deen is the face of the overall organization.

    Agreed on all counts. I would like to be a fly on the wall & hear her sons opinion of dear Bubba. I bet they use harsh words.

    Yes, I'd be VERY interested in his deposition. And I hope it was given before Paula's became public.

    I'm not a lawyer and don't play one on TV, but would think his deposition took place in May as well.

    I want to know if the story about the hostess accused of stealing a purse was true and if she'll come forward.

    I'm liking her less and less. I knew she was tacky, but now all of this - who knew she was so vile? Her loser brother too.

    I keep reading this thread title as, "I have type 2 Racism" which makes me wonder what the two types are.

    I will never believe Paula is completely blindsided by any of this. She may not have known every vile thing her brother did, but there is no way she didn't know her brother. I doubt he hid himself from her in any way. And yet she chose to give him power, excuse his bad behavior, and ignore complaints. No, the picture forming here is one mean old broad who let her meaner brother run roughshod over whomever he chose.

    As for what her sons think of their uncle, I'd bet much the same as Paula. He's a man, he can do as he pleases. Also, one of the sons is best friends with that general manager dude who comes off like a first class asshole himself. This group is starting to look like a steaming snake pit.

    There's a reason her thread at TWoP when I used to visit a long time ago was called, "Paula Deen: We'll Save These for the Men." Or something like that. Haven't been back much since the Bravo takeover.

    That makes sense, it make me nervous if a waitress comes in & I have to watch to make sure she washes her hands!

    Also-she had such a struggle getting started-why would she let men be paid more?
    This bothers me the most-those accusations are slime,but they are just accusations. Not fact,yet at least.

    Her brother sounds like total trash. I am drawing that from the same accusations,but he has had trouble with alcohol before...
    That Lisa person sounds a bit off herself.

    Whatever-all those corporations must have had legal teams swarming all over that paperwork.
    They might know more than we do,actually.
    There is no doubt those accusations are horrid and maybe she deserves what she gets. I guess it chaps me that she (a woman) get trashed more that Michael Vick or Lance Armstrong,IMO.
    Doesn't Paula's company own 51% of Bubba's restaurant And doesn't Paula own her own company? She would be wholly responsible, as the majority owner, for all of his workplace misdeeds and specifically if the allegation that complaints were made directly to her and she ignored them.

    Her brother sounds like an incredibly stupid, vicious, evil person.

    Yep. I think it would be wise to throw him under the train. Not that it changes things at this point.
