14 Facts about Paula Deen1

In 1989, Paula, recently divorced with two young children and living in Savannah with only $200 to her name, launched a small catering company called The Bag Lady, for which she prepared sandwiches that she and her sons went out and sold.


Paula, a self-professed "late bloomer," didn't get the idea to be a professional cook until she was 42 years old.


Paula often cooks with what she calls one of her favorite ingredients: butter.


Both Paula's parents died by the time she was 23. She says their deaths led to a fear of death, and eventually brought on her battle with chronic agoraphobia. Her fear of leaving the house became even more intense when she was held up at gunpoint when she was a bank teller. Eventually she was able to overcome her illness without therapy. »
