  • All claims dismissed against Paula Deen in employee lawsuit

    **SNIP** According to court documents filed in Savannah, Ga., all claims against the TV chef have been dismissed in the suit brought by former restaurant manager Lisa Jackson, with no award of costs or fees to any party. Jackson had sued on the grounds that the work environment at Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House, owned by Deen and her brother, subjected employees to sexual harassment and racial discrimination. The news comes two weeks after a federal judge threw out the lawsuit's race discrimination claims, stating that though others may have faced that discrimination in the restaurant, Jackson could not...

    Earlier this afternoon, we reported on how despite the controversy over her past use of racial epithets, celebrity cook Paula Deen is experiencing a surge in book sales on retailer Amazon. The sales spike was so strong that her newest book, Paula Deen’s New Testament, hit #1 on the site’s Best Seller list despite not being released until October. It turns out those huge pre-sale numbers are for naught. The book’s publisher has canceled its release. In a statement released Friday afternoon, Ballantine Books announced it has dropped Deen and will not publish Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes,...

    There is politically correct bigotry and non-acceptable bigotry. Celebrity chef Paula Deen is a celebrity no more. She was fired from the Food Network for a racial slur, the N-word, which she uttered some time ago. She has since apologized for those hurtful remarks against African-Americans. Deen has begged for forgiveness. Nothing doing. Life will never be the same for Paula Deen. Life is much sweeter for celebrity author Alice Walker, who remains kosher despite remarks hurtful against the Jewish people. She has made no apologies. None necessary. Despite her festering grudge against Israel and her acrimony against Jewish people...

    Last week was a great week for lesbians coming out of the closet — coming out, that is, as middle-aged heterosexual men. On Sunday, Amina Arraf, the young vivacious Syrian lesbian activist whose inspiring blog “A Gay Girl in Damascus” had captured hearts around the world, was revealed to be, in humdrum reality, one Tom MacMaster, a 40-year-old college student from Georgia. The following day, Paula Brooks, the lesbian activist and founder of the website LezGetReal, was revealed to be one Bill Graber, a 58-year-old construction worker from Ohio. In their capacity as leading lesbians in the Sapphic blogosphere, “Miss...

    Hurricane Paula has developed in the warm waters of the Western Caribbean Sea. Paula is the ninth storm to reach hurricane status in the 2010 Atlantic tropical storm season. Initial estimates are somewhat uncertain, with extreme southwest Florida and the Florida Keys in the initial five-day cone of uncertainty. There is considerable spread in the track model guidance with the GFDL accelerating Paula east-northeastward over the Atlantic in several days and the GFS and ECMWF guidance turning the cyclone southward or southwestward over the northwest Caribbean Sea.

She'll leave the judging to others to sing "I'm Just Here for the Music" -- the first single off an album due out in the fall. Since she's preparing to return to the music scene, the timing seemed right to bare her soul over the drug habit that she's recently kicked.For the first time, Abdul reveals how hard it was for her to detox from a 12-year-long painkiller addiction. "I could have killed myself," she tells this month's issue of Ladies' Home Journal. The withdrawal...

    Excerpt - Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones are teaming up on a Web site to remind Bill Clinton they're still around. They met recently while appearing together on Geraldo Rivera's Fox show "and really hit it off 'cause we had so much in common," Flowers, Clinton's former mistress, said in an e-mail on Friday. Both have been "vilified" over the years, Flowers said, and "we have both agreed that it's a shame that more of the 'Clinton Women' didn't get together long ago. There could have been strength in numbers! For now, it's me and Paula." The Web site address...

    The gospel message that links God with dollars has been called to judgment before a powerful U.S. senator. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) sent letters requesting detailed financial documents to two metro Atlanta preachers and four other ministries nationwide whose leaders are known for opulent, or as the ministers would say, blessed, lifestyles. Grassley is the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee and has developed a reputation for demanding financial transparency from non-profits. He wants to know how much Bishop Eddie Long of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia and the Rev. Creflo and Taffi Dollar of World Changers...

    Idol" Sparks New Controversy on Access Hollywood By Laura Saltman The show is only back two days and already "American Idol" is sparking controversy. Today the buzz all around my office is about how mean-spirited the show is during the audition rounds. While I was out having dinner, an email came over my blackberry from our music producer, Nancy Harrison, who was on the east coast watching the show, "I must say tonight's episode was quite disturbing. Two of the Seattle contestants--Kenneth and Jonathan--were clearly limited... and the judges still poked fun of them. I found this to be in...

    TAMPA - It may have been the least likely place for a man who doesn't believe in God to receive a standing ovation, but it happened Sunday morning when Joe Redner went to church. Bishop Randy White, senior pastor at Without Walls International Church, invited the strip club owner to join him in the pulpit and talk about his campaign for the Hillsborough County Commission District 5 seat. "All right, he's not running for pastor. My job's not up," White jokingly told parishioners while introducing Redner, as their continued applause prompted Redner to stand and nod his head in thanks.

    Beverly Hills -- Taking a page from Washington, the producers of "American Idol" and Fox TV hired an independent counsel to determine whether judge Paula Abdul had an affair with a contestant on the hit talent show. "Any allegations against this show we take quite seriously," Fox Entertainment President Peter Liguori said Thursday, calling the competition's credibility "extraordinarily important to us." Liguori refused to say if Fox and producers Fremantle Media and 19 Television would fire Abdul if the claims by Corey Clark, an unsuccessful contestant on season two, were found to be true. The probe's results are due soon...

    Paula's jonesing for Clinton library Paula Jones wants to go to a library - but she isn't looking for a book. The woman who claimed that former President Bill Clinton exposed himself to her thinks it's time she visited the $165 million study center dedicated to his administration. "My house is about 17 miles from it," says Jones, who lives just north of Little Rock, Ark. "I pass by [the Clinton Presidential Center] all the time. I kept saying, 'I ought to go in there.' My friends and I talked about putting on wigs - just in case they won't...

    Speculation mounted yesterday that ``American Idol'' judge Paula Abdul may be voted off the hit reality show after ABC airs a damning investigation tomorrow night. Abdul, who has been under fire for erratic on-air behavior, may voluntarily vacate the judge's podium after ``Primetime Live'' airs answering-machine messages she left for a 24-year-old contestant. The Drudge Report says Abdul personally coached the contestant and then tried to cover it up. Speculation surrounds Corey Clark, who was run off the show last season after it was revealed he assaulted his teenage sister. Clark is peddling a tell-all biography in which he claims...

    The Clinton spin machine drones on. The media are reporting today that in her new book, Living History, Hillary Clinton claims she believed Bill's denials of an affair with Monica Lewinsky for some six months. Not until the weekend before his August 17, 1998, grand-jury testimony, when he confessed to her, did she accept the truth. Hillary writes: I could hardly breathe. Gulping for air, I started crying and yelling at him, 'What do you mean? What are you saying? Why did you lie to me? I was furious and getting more so by the second. He just stood there...
