Paula Deen Gets Served!

2/21/2009 10:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paula DeanThe woman who brought you the Paula Deen Egg Mold has just been sued over the Paula Deen Egg Mold.

The kitchen queen allegedly inked a deal with Nitches, Inc., a company claiming exclusive rights to peddle Paula's knick knacks. Nitches alleges in a lawsuit filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Paula's company -- Paula Deen Enterprises -- negotiated in bad faith, turning around and using another company to hawk her stuff.

Nitches is laying claim to a variety of products, including pancake molds, potpourri, barbecue materials, clocks, sleepwear, baking timers, egg molds and aprons. The kitchen sink is not included, presumably because Paula couldn't figure out a way to stamp her name on it.

Nitches wants unspecified damages and an injunction prohibiting Paula from selling the gadgets.
