SHEEE’S BACCCKKK!!  Paula Deen is officially kicking off her comeback attempt. According to Pulse of Radio,

The celebrity chef announced the first five dates of a new live tour on Monday (April 28th) that will take her to 20 destinations across the country this summer.

The tour is an attempt to rebuild her career following last summer’s racism scandal which resulted in her losing many of her endorsement deals. It begins in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee on June 21st. The 90-minute live show will feature cooking demos, storytelling, and games that will involve audience members. Paula told the Miami Times, “We are going to play musical chairs and the dating game with the audience. That’s the excitement of it all — my fans get to be part of the show.”

Other destinations announced so far include Savannah, Atlanta, Nashville, and San Antonio.  Tickets go on sale on May 1st.
