Paula Deen Hawks Chicken and Furniture
Paul Deen chicken - not yet at a Publix near you.
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
