Two years after accusations of racism nearly destroyed her food empire, it seems Paula Deen has learned nothing!
[FLASHBACK: Never Forget: Paula Deen Wants You N-Words To Know… (Official Apology)]
For the record, a racist attitude is not something that can be apologized away. Feeling bad about it is not going to wash away all the years she felt ‘some kinda way’ about other cultures. That being said, Deen, the former Food Network star and court documented racist, has landed herself in hot water yet again.

Early Tuesday morning, Deen’s social media accounts sent out a tweet and Facebook post with a photo depicting the cook dressed as Lucille Ball’s character from the 1950s television sitcom “I Love Lucy.”
Her son, Bobby Deen, is dressed as the show’s husband, Ricky Ricardo (Cuban-American Desi Arnaz) and the younger Deen is wearing what several media outlets are referring to as “brownface” to mimic Arnaz’s ethnicity.
*sigh* Same ish… different day!
The photo has since been deleted but as you know… nothing is ever truly ‘deleted’ from the net.

Word on the curb is that Kim Fields is will be joining the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta for season 8.
There’s going to be a few new faces on The Real Housewives of Atlanta next season and it appears that the ‘Facts of Life’ actress will be one of them.
As you know, Claudia Jordan was the first ‘housewife’ rumored to get the boot (click HERE if you missed that) and Nene Leakes announced her departure from the popular reality show just days ago (click HERE if you missed that), and a few ‘newbies’ were already in the works.
Fields grew up on television appearing as Tootie in “Facts of Life” and later as Regine in “Living Single.” She’s been residing in Atlanta for years and is more likely to be found behind the camera these days, directing shows like Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns” and BET’s “Let’s Stay Together” as well as her “Holiday Love” series.
Now, Fields (who is married with two young children), can add ‘Atlanta Housewife’ to her extensive resume.
