Paula Deen’s Longtime Cook Speaks Out, Claims She Wasn’t Treated Fairly



Paula Deen’s cook of 22-years opened up about her longtime employer, claiming that the celebrity chef did not properly reward her for her hard work.

“It’s just time that everybody knows that Paula Deen don’t treat me the way they think she treat me,” Dora Charles told the New York Times in an interview.

Dora claimed that when Deen first started with the Food Network, she was making $6.50 an hour at Deen’s Lady & Sons restaurant in Savannah. “She said, ‘Stick with me.’ One day if I get rich, you get rich.’ ” But it “just passed me by,” Charles said.

The 59-year-old also claimed that the former Food Network host tried to make her ring a dinner bell for restaurant customers. “That’s a symbol to me of what we used to do back in the day,” Charles shared. According to Charles, Deen also made another employee dress in an old-style Aunt Jemima outfit.

“I’m not trying to portray that she is a bad person … I’m just trying to put my story out there that she didn’t treat me fairly and I was her soul sister,” Charles admitted.

Paula’s camp fired back claiming that Dora’s complaint was not about race, but the money. “It is about an employee that despite over 20 years of generosity feels that she still deserves yet even more financial support from Paula Deen,” Paula’s camp wrote in a statement.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”



Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
