Paula Deen, the drunk delightful host of three Food Network shows and owner of The Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah, Georgia, is quite the entrepreneur. Besides the restaurant and television gigs, Deen is the author of almost two dozen cookbooks, and lends her name and likeness to cookware, collectibles (anyone want a "Hey, y'all!" keychain or Paula Deen reading glasses?), honey, seasonings and any number of items. In fact, there are over 7,000 items listed for sale on Deen's shopping site.

So it should come as no surprise that Deen has partnered with Universal Furniture to create Paula Deen Home, a line of country-inspired and cozy furniture. The line allows you to live like a Southern belle-turned-cooking-diva. After a long day writing recipes at your "recipe writing desk," you can relax at the "put your feet up" coffee table before retiring for the night in your "steel magnolia" bed.

Wait! It gets goofier.

Deen has also partnered with Springer Mountain Farms to

endorse its chickens, which means that you'll be able to see Paula's

insanely super-white teeth and hair on the bird you picked out for

your family meal. The Deen chickens are being distributed by Publix, but

according to the Springer Mountain Farms website, they're not available

in South Florida ... yet.

We can't wait to sink our teeth into Paula's meaty breast and thighs.
