Paula Deen's Cruise


By Her Own Assistant!

2/2/2013 5:12 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0202-paula-deen-tmzPaula Deen probably expected a bad review or two for her Paula Deen & Family 2013 Caribbean Cruise ... but she probably didn't count on her own assistant trashing it on Twitter!

Brandon Branch -- who identifies himself as Deen's assistant on Twitter -- was aboard the cruise when it set sail on January 27 and immediately began piling on the insults, tweeting out, "This is a floating nursing home!!!!"

He followed that up seven minutes later with, "My room is also the size of my powder room at home. And no liquor in minibar! I am in a dark place!!!!"

Branch then started tweeting a friend, asking him to "get in the invisible plane and rescue me! I am in position! Lower the rope!!!!! You should be here with us! Everyone is 80 and up!"

Branch eventually stopped and didn't tweet again until yesterday ... with a whole new disposition: "Having a fabo lunch at El Cid resort! I have always loved Mexico!! One more day at sea then home. Been so much fun!"

Looks like someone drank the deep fried Kool-Aid.

Fire the dude for speaking his mind. What? He's gay? Pig, then you can't fire him or he'll sue. Politically correct society of 2013. We are our own worst enemy

I went on a cruise once. My room was tiny, but I didn't care because I knew that all i was going to be doing in there was sleeping or changing clothes anyways. Also, old people can be a lot of fun. It's not fair to judge them just because of their age.

Ingrate. Fire his stupid ass.

Sounds like someone showed the little ungrateful azz blister who signs his check. He needs to STFU and be grateful he can be an assistant to anybody. There are tons of people who would kill to be her assistant and will know absolutely when to STFU and do their job.

Every time I see Paula Deen on TV or in an article like this, I imagine her drawn as a jack-ass with buck teeth and instead of braying Hee Haw, Hee Haw, I see her substituting "You all", "You all".
Ever notice her family, on her show, always acts a bit mentally slow?

Paula Deen is a Major phony as that southern accent........A mean old azz liar......she's a money grubbing pig that should just roast her fat azz and stick an apple in her mouth .....she's garbage......know people who know her and they say shes a bitc!

It's clear to me. Paula is using older people to make money.....she's ripping them off and smiling all the way to the bank...........bitch needs to be investigated! She'd BBQ her own mother if it make a show!

Paula Deen pumped America, N. America with high cholesterol, full fat and surgery recipes in books and TV knowing for many years she had Diabetes. Then switche-a-roo she becomes an advocate for healthy eating-cooking marketing this new image. Rather self-serving which Anthony Bourdain has commented about! I'm not a fan of Paula Deen, her sons, her kin or her new image. OMG, a cruise with Paula? What do people do on this cruise? Eat healthy all day and then sleep zzzzzzzzzzzzz
