Paula Deen Sobbing On The ‘Today Show’: ‘I Is What I Is, And I’m Not Changing’

All celebrity PR nightmares lead to the Today show, where Controversial Famous People must sit under the hot lights and submit to being grilled. When her assistant told her about this, Paula Deen only heard the words “hot lights” and “grilled,” so she had no idea what to expect this morning, when she spoke to the only person America hates more than her, Matt Lauer. (Racism? That’s nothing compared to being a creep to Anne Hathaway.)

“I is what I is, and I’m not changing,” a teary Deen told host Matt Lauer.

Deen was adamant when she told Lauer that she had only uttered the N-word once.

“The day I used that word, it was a world ago,” she said. “It was 30 years ago.” (Via)

Thirty years ago was 1983, or about 20 years after most people figured out, “Huh, maybe we should stop saying this awful word.” I’d love to know the context. “I really love The Return of the Jedi, except for Lando. He’s such a…His friend Ackbar looks tasty, though.” Anyway, later on in the interview, Paula added, “If there’s anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me.” He who casts the first stone and gets it logged into Paula’s dusty twine hair wins a prize.
