Paula Deen net worth: Paula Deen is a Georgia-born restaurateur, cook, author, and actress who has a net worth of $14 million dollars. After a string of family tragedies, Paula Deen found herself suffering from agoraphobia and began cooking since she was unable to leave her home. Eventually, she expanded into a catering business, and finally a full-fledged restaurant business. She has since gone on to write multiple cookbooks and host shows and specials on the Food Network. In June 2013, Deen was fired from the Food Network after admitting in a court proceeding that she had used the "n word" in the past to describe African Americans. Deen is currently embroiled in a lawsuit brought by a former employee who charges that Paula's restaurants are a hostile work environment and that Deen herself is racist. After her testimony was made public, Deen lost her job at the Food Network and was dropped by many sponsors including Wal-Mart, Caesars Entertainment, Home Depot, Novo Nodisk, Smithfield Foods, Sears, QVC and Target.
