Further digging seems to indicate that the disgruntled former employee tried to extort money from Ms. Deen in return for her silence. No, this doesn't stink at all...

The day after my family joined me in Texas, we ate a a local Jims restaurant. The waitress came up to us and in her biggest smile said, “Can I get you some coffee, sugar?”
My wife almost had a stroke. “That’s discrimination, that’s not right, that is offensive.” (we are from the Northeast) I had to explain to her it is called southern hospitality and she should only worry when someone says to her, “well bless your heart.”

Paula was a good success story, and enjoyable in the beginning, but I think that money and fame has turned her head.
My wife being an excellent cook was a big fan so I paid over $100 for a ticket so she could see Deen who was appearing in Atlanta. Deen came out on stage and said "Thanks for coming", and left...leaving the cooking demo to the "hired help" who know one ever heard of.
Then later when I heard she was crazy about Jimmy Carter, and supported the obamas, we abandoned her altogether.

Has the aggrieved received a phone call from the First Lady?

Years ago my wife and I dined at Paula Deen’s first restaurant, Mother And Sons. I can only say based on the brief meeting we had with her, Paula was extremely nice and friendly and it was some of the best fried chicken I'd have ever had.

Yeah, it’s not like Paula Deen ever made any sexual remarks on her television show (including about her son’s private parts or her husband’s ‘sausage’).
