After taking some heat, Paula Deen is ready to get back in the kitchen.
Paula Deen's coming back
The celebrity chef is teaming up with a private investor to grow her celebrity chef business. Her business, which is reportedly worth $17 million, that took a major hit last year after she admitted to using the N-word decades ago.
Deen is partnering with Phoenix-based Najafi Media, which specializes in consumer distribution. Jahm Najafi, founder and chief executive officer, said in a statement Wednesday that he has "a deep respect for the hard work, unique content and quality products which Paula has built around her brand."
But will Deen's comeback be a success?
