PAULA DEEN has been widely blasted for admitting she used the N-word and worse and as The ENQUIRER predicted when we broke the scandalous story, her business empire has now crumbled.
But the now former Food Network star has an unlikely champion – O.J. Simpson!
In a bombshell world exclusive, The ENQUIRER reveals that the disgraced football great reached out to Paula from his prison cell in Nevada to declare: “Leave Paula Deen alone!”
Simpson’s manager, Norm Pardo, told The ENQUIRER: “Many people will be surprised to hear that O.J. thinks Paula is great, and he’s in her corner on this issue.”
The two fallen stars bonded years ago, when O.J. stopped by Paula’s restaurant in Savannah, Ga., and enjoyed a special feast that the Southern kitchen queen prepared just for him.
And The ENQUIRER has obtained a videotape of the meal, which shows how the two hit it off in the days before Paula was famous.
In riveting detail, Pardo – who was with O.J. that day — recalls the encounter, including the reason why Simpson was so taken with Deen, what he really thinks about her use of the N-word and how he ended up dining on a “jackalope.”
