Paula Deen Gets Standing Ovation At First Public Appearance in Months

Cooking star Paula Deen fought back tears Saturday as she was greeted by cheers and a standing ovation from a crowd of about 1,500 during her appearance at the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show at Reliant Center. It was Deen’s first public appearance since late June, when news broke that she had used a racial slur in her past. “These are tears of joy, y’all,” Deen told the audience. “I’ve said all along that the one place I’d want to make my first step back out is Texas. Y’all’s hearts are as big as your state.”
