Paula Deen planning comeback

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WIAT) — Southern celebrity chef Paula Deen is back, and she’s ready to get cooking. She plans to open a restaurant this summer at Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

The new restaurant and store will be called “Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen.” Pigeon Forge is a retail and entertainment hub in the smoky mountains. The southern-fried facility will be the first business from her new firm, Paula Deen Ventures.

This will be Deen’s first effort to revive her brand since she admitted to using a racial slur last year.
