Paula Deen has been making headlines a lot lately and it hasn’t been for her fine southern cuisine either. Just about everyone and their mama has heard of and formed an opinion about the racial scandal involving the celebrity chef and a former employee who made explosive claims about Deen, which ultimately led to the exposing of her racial and offensive behavior. Since then, Paula has attempted to come forward and clean up her image, but she only appears to be making a bigger mess of things. During a recent interview with Jay Leno, funny lady Wanda Sykes weighed in on the controversy and humorously offered some valuable advice to America’s latest villain.
“Paula Deen, aww that poor lady,” Sykes responded when Leno made mention of the controversy.
“She needs a friend to just tell her, ‘You need to just shut the hell up right now. Just sit down and shut up,’” Wanda jokingly continued.
“She’s out here blabbing on TV [imitates a crying Paula Deen]. I think on the ‘Today Show’ she should’ve just run out and kissed Al Roker. Just ahhhhhhhhh [sticks tongue and does hilarious kissing gesture] and then she should’ve given Al Roker a lap dance and said, ‘I got no problems with y’all, I got no problems [pops booty].’”
“It’s just messed up. She said that she said the N-word once [when she was being robbed]. Nah, that’s when you’re supposed to be saying sir… somebody got a gun to your head! What the hell is wrong with her? It doesn’t make any sense. If she said it once, after losing this empire, I’m sure she’s going to be saying it a lot more now. I mean everybody’s dropping her. It was so funny like, Sears dropped her today and then people who she wasn’t even in business with dropped her. Hair Club for Men dropped her. BET dropped her. Like what the hell?” Wanda continued to joke.
Although Wanda’s delivery is quite humorous, she’s right. Paula should probably close her mouth and have a seat, immediately!
