Is Paula Deen For Real?
I like Paula Deen. She has a warm personality, she apparently likes the gays, and most importantly she whips up a mean buttermilk pancake.
But with that accent laid on as thick as barbecue sauce on chicken fried steak, I'm starting to think she "hicks" it up for the public a little.
Yes, I know the woman's from deep down in the wilds of Georgia, but in this day and age, does anyone still talk as if three quarts of molasses are sitting on their tongue?
By the way, I have another theory, which is that Charo puts on an extra thick Hispanic accent as part of her persona.
No, I swear!
