Embattled celebrity chef Paula Deen has fired her Georgia attorneys and called in the big guns—including famed Hollywood attorney-to-the-stars Patricia Glaser—to help salvage her reputation and media empire.
Deen is embroiled in a sexual and racial harassment lawsuit based on her ownership of a Savannah, Ga., restaurant.
After Deen admitted in a deposition to past use of racial slurs, the Food Network canceled her cable TV show, and she lost lucrative merchandise deals with Walmart and other retailers.
After a disastrous round of media appearances in which Deen tried to explain away her past statements, she apparently had second thoughts about the legal advice she was receiving.
Now she has brought in the high-stakes litigation heavy hitters: the Los Angeles law firm GlaserWeil.
Glaser will personally oversee Deen’s case. The attorney is known for representing stars such as Keith Olbermann and Conan O’Brien in civil litigation and television contract negotiations.
