Celebrity Chef Paula Deen is ready to close the door on another chapter in her life.
Uncle Bubba’s Seafood & Oyster House, one of her family restaurants in her hometown of Savannah, Ga., has officially closed for business.
The Deen family’s new publicity team released a statement explaining “the restaurant’s owner and operator, Bubba Hiers, has made the decision to close the restaurant in order to explore development options for the waterfront property, on which the restaurant is located.”
The restaurant was also the venue that triggered the sexual and racial harassment suit by an employee against Deen, 67, and her brother, Hiers, 60.
The lawsuit was dismissed after lawyers reached a deal, but Deen’s reputation was seriously damaged after she admitted during legal proceedings that she had used racial slurs in the past.
Damn Paula can’t catch a BREAK!!
