"We have come off a hard summer ... my family and my partners ... and I want to take a moment to apologize to those of you who didn't hear me. I hope you see us bring back good memories for you," Deen said.
CNN's Erin Burnett talks to branding expert, Steve Adubato about whether she can pull off a comeback.
"I think Paula Deen is probably a really nice person, but when she opens her mouth, and talks about race and she talks about slavery, it's dangerous." Adubato said, "I think that someone who grew up the way Paula Deen does or did just doesn't understand how that offends folks."
After taking some heat, Paula Deen is ready to get back in the kitchen.
