CAUGHT ON VIDEO—PAUL DEEN’s secret confession – her racist rant EXPOSED in a bombshell ENQUIRER WORLD EXCLUSIVE!

In a blockbuster world exclusive, The ENQUIRER rips the lid off a shocking racial scandal in which celebrity chef PAULA DEEN confesses to using the N-word on several occasions and even wanting black waiters to play the role of slave in a wedding party she was planning.

In a disturbing May 17 legal deposition – which only The ENQUIRER has obtained — Paula also reveals stunning family secrets about booze and pornography. And it was all captured on video!

Now, sources say that Paula’s own words could bring down the Food Network star’s $17 million business empire.

The bombshell revelations came to light after one of Paula’s restaurant managers, Lisa Jackson, sued the popular TV star for discrimination in a whopping $1.2 million lawsuit.

Paula, 66, and her brother Earl “Bubba” Hiers – who co-owns a restaurant with her – gave depositions, where the damaging confessions were disclosed. Incredibly, one source claims this is only the tip of the iceberg.

“While Paula and Bubba did make some pretty damaging confessions in their depositions, what they admitted to only scratches the surface of what actually goes on in their daily lives,” said an insider.
