who knew that Paula D had such a past? Im shocked by her history, and the hardships she endured getting where she got. Who knew she got where she is with pure determination and not via a silver spoon... and most amusingly- Go Paula for getting your affairs out of the way, before going famous. Im happy for her that so far her 2nd hubby is way better than the last. Who knew her boys, were mama's boys?... Almost like hte cord has not yet been cut... I guess their family is just really really tight. Lastly, Im so happy that she narrated it herself. Im tickled by the way she says Al-bee-nee georgia, and whats up with the "a" between ya'll and ham... must be a georgia thing. It was good to hear about her visit with President Jimmy Carter.

I'd only seen Paula Deans' show once, didn't care for her personality, so never watched her show again, but several friends of mine love her, so I rented this so we could listen to her story. UNREAL! So, now I'm going to watch her show and appreciate her because of what all she has been through and overcame.

Before reading the book, I had seen every show Paula ever did. Since reading the book, I have not been quite as infatuated. The book, to me, really tarnished her gilding. I suspect that the personna on the "party" shows is closer to the truth, and that was a disappointment.
