ALBANY – Food Network‘s celebrity chef, award winning television host, and world renowned racist Paula Deen is to be played by Cameron Diaz in an almost instantly misjudged comedy Turn Them Over, They’re Done, to be directed by Frank Coraci.
Coraci whimpered to The Studio Exec (exclusively):
We’re going to take a very difficult moment in a person’s life, a really delicate subject and what looks to be the ruination of a long career, and play it for laughs.
But isn’t that…?
F*ck you, Studio Exec.
One of the finest comediennes of our glittering firmament, we asked Cameron Diaz if she worried her reputation might be damaged by portraying a signed up member of the Kooking Kookies Klan (or something like that).
“What reputation?” she said, laughing like a drain, the sun glinting off stuff.
Turn Them Over, They’re Done will air on TMC next Fall.
