Pretending that either everyone has a really short memory, or that the unpleasantness last year never really happened, Paula Deen has announced she's launching The Paula Deen Network, a subscription based online video channel that will feature her, her recipes, and the like.

Pretty ballsy Paula. Even at the height of her popularity, I would have thought this to be a tough sell, and now that she's alienated herself from millions of Americans, I can't see the prospects being any better, unless a certain demographic feels an even stronger bond with her, and is now will to support her statements with a subscription to her network.

Highly unlikely, but who knows. There has to be some reason she feels this will work, and it's probably not the world's love of gravy.

Ok. Maybe the love of gravy is enough to get this to work.
