Paula Deen made several appearances at the 2010 South Beach Wine and Food Festival. On Sunday afternoon, she was scheduled for a 45-minute cooking demo, where she was to prepare stuffed shrimp; but after being overscheduled with other events, she showed up 20 minutes late. As a result, she just talked to the audience instead. And she is filthier than Blanche Deveraux from "The Golden Girls."
Topics of discussion included:
Sex: "Children don't like to think about their parents with their heels raised up to Jesus. My kids think they were born from immaculacy. Is that what it's called?"
Her assistant Brandon: "I love my drunk gay assistant!"
Gay men who formed a fan club for her husband, Michael: "They were bears. Y'all know what bears are? Bears would be you (pointing to a large tattooed man), if you were gay. You're cute, stand up, I want to look at you."
Arguing with a festival staff member who flashed a "2 minutes left" warning sign: "Okay thank you. (Raises middle finger) Let me know when I have one minute left."
The horny nature of her drunk gay assistant Brandon: "He's been away from his partner for four days, and he said even wine bottles are starting to look good."
On getting her start running an illegal catering business out of her house: "My boys and I lived in fear 24 hours a day the food police were going to follow us home after a job. But when you're a single mother, you do what you've got to do to get the job done."
The gay community: "It don't matter who loves you, as long as you're loved."
