Paula Deen curses on tape

You have probably seen the blooper video where Paula Deen tries to make a sailor blush, but now you can check out the court documents.

The silver-haired Southern chef is dealing with public relations fallout from her curse-laden blooper reel that leaked on to the internet over the weekend.

In the video, according to the NY Post published on Saturday, Deen jokes about oral sex, testicles and female genitalia.

At one point in the video, Deen pretends to perform a sex act on a chocolate éclair, and then exclaims, “My ass ain’t pretty no more!”

The video is one of the juiciest details to come out of a lawsuit between Deen and the organization Celebrity Chefs Tour (CCT). On February 23, 2010, Paula Deen Enterprises (PDE) sued CCT for breaching the contract by writing a bounced check, indemnification and defamation. CCT then countersued Paula Deen Enterprises for breach of contract, defamation, and tortious interference with the contract on March 15, 2010.

The documents show the deterioration of the business relationship between the parties, and how the blooper reel was a major point of contention between the parties.

The NY Post reports that the blooper reel was provided by Deen to run as an introduction to her tour presentations.

“That video was so full of inappropriate remarks and sexually suggestive materials that CCT advised PDE’s representatives that it would not be able to use that video,” wrote CCT’s attorneys. “CCT again reminded Counterclaim Defendant PDE’s representatives that the show was intended to be family entertainment, that there were going to be matinee and evening audiences that would likely include a substantial number of children, and requested that Counterclaim Defendant PDE edit the video to be appropriate for those audience members.”

HLN has reached out to Deen's representatives for a comment, but have not gotten a response.

The case was dismissed on September 10, 2012, and terms of the settlement are confidential.
