  • In what seems to be an attempt to revamp Paula Deen’s public persona, her management team brought in Smith & Co CEO Judy Smith.

    The move comes after Deen initially cancelled her appearance on “The Today Show” last Friday.  Smith, who is the inspiration behind Kerry Washington’s character on ABC’s “Scandal,” and also serves as a co-executive producer and technical adviser on the show, has yet to comment.

    With a new PR team in place for Deen, her interview with Matt Lauer on “The Today Show” was rescheduled and was held yesterday. During the interview, she was seen in tears while explaining that her use of the “N” word in the past came while being held at gunpoint.

    Judy Smith has represented a number of celebrities facing scandals, including Michael Vick, Wesley Snipes and Kobe Bryant, according to The Inquisitr. She also represented Monica Lewinksy and Jill Kelley, the mistress of former CIA director Gen. David Petraeus. Smith previously served as Special Assistant and Deputy Press Secretary to President George H.W. Bush.

    Although some people may be sympathetic towards Deen’s emotional display, the fact remains that companies such a Smithfield Foods, The Food Network and Caesars Entertainment have all separated themselves from the famous chef.

    2. Well, if anybody can fix a PR train wreck like this one, it would probably be Judy. Her own PR team isn’t helping her too much. Problem is, Paula may well be done already. Stick a fork in it.

    3. CIVIL WAR: THEY HATE US: The white people which support PD HATE BLACK PEOPLE!!! I don’t buy into the word “Racist” because it does not REVEAL the fact that white people, especially in the South, HATE BLACK PEOPLE with a passion, which Black :People cannot perceive. Most White people in the South are still fighting the Civil War.
