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.

If you know anything about Paula, she struggled for many years dealing with agoraphobia and not being able to leave her house. She had to work ever harder to jump start The Bad Lady Business and provide for her two young boys. I know Paula is a good businesswoman and wouldn't do anything wrong! Leave Paula alone!!

TMZ hits a new low    

There is not a dishonest bone in this woman's body. She struggled to start a business on $200 that her ex-husband LOANED her. But with her agoraphobia, she could not go out and peddle the business herself. So her young sons, Bobby and Jamie, did door to door sales of her bag lunch business when they could have been out with their friends. And it grew very slowly. Very slowly. This family has what they have because of Paula's spirit and determination. She's a true American success story. She deserves every dollar she earns. By the way, they still run their Lady and Sons restaurant every day. TMZ, you got served for not telling this story right.

I have much respect for Paula and her accomplishments. She's real people y'all. I highly doubt she'd intentionally try to screw anyone over. If anything, this is just a big misunderstanding or a flat out bald-faced lie.

I could care less about her. She had us all fooled in the beginning of her success..."traditional, sweet, southern woman"...She is now a sneaky, liberal, money-grubber who follows the other juice drinkin' democrat/liberals...She gives the south a bad name.
