STATEMENT: Paula Deen

The Lady and Sons The Lady and Sons

While this has been a difficult time for both my family and myself, I am pleased that the Judge dismissed the race claims and I am looking forward to getting this behind me, now that the remaining claims have been resolved. 

During this time my faith has strengthened me and the tremendous outpouring of support as well as prayers from folks from all walks of life has been both humbling and overwhelming. 

I am confident that those who truly know how I live my life know that I believe in kindness and fairness for everyone. 

Lisa Jackson worked at Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House for more than 5 years and we appreciate her service. 

Moving forward my team and I are working to review the workplace environment issues that were raised in this matter and to retool all of my businesses operations.  I look forward to getting back to doing what I love.
