Next week, Paula Deen returns to basic cable, not with a new cooking show but as the subject of an E! True Hollywood Story documenting Deen’s rise and fall as a TV chef. “I had a little rough patch this summer,” Deen tells the show’s producers. “But you know it was an opportunity to learn. I learned a lot about myself. I certainly learned a lot about my business.”
Deen isn’t the only one who’s been going through a rough patch recently. Her former partners at Food Network can no doubt relate.
