According to a lawsuit filed in Georgia, butterwitch Paula Deen used a racial slur beginning with "n" to describe the perfect wedding.
"I want a true southern plantation-style wedding. ... What I would like is a bunch of little n****** to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around. Now that would be a true southern wedding, wouldn't it? But we can't do that now, the media would be on me."
Posted by Radar Online, the suit (PDF) was filed by a former employee, Lisa T. Jackson, over claimed harassment and other rights violations.
Other allegations include boorish behavior from Deen's brother, Bubba Hiers, such as "the styrofoam cup poured almost full with whisky" alleged to be in his possession at 10 a.m. many days. Also, Deen is said to frequently use the word "massaging."
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this blog post referred to Paula Deen as the Batterwitch. Ms. Deen is in fact the Butterwitch. Betty Crocker is the Batterwitch.
