Considering Paula Deen‘s descent from grace after her recent racism scandal, it’s no wonder that E! was quick to turn around a “True Hollywood Story” episode about the former Food Network star. Though Deen didn’t participate in the making of the episode, her close family and friends were interviewed in the look back at her life.
A preview clip of “True Hollywood Story: Paula Deen,” above, shows her sons Jamie and Bobby Deen talking about their mother’s period of loneliness between when she divorced her first husband and when she met her second one. Then her current man, Michael Groover, shares the moment he first laid eyes on his future wife.
It will be interesting to see how much this episode delves into the details of Deen’s recent public backlash. While this clip proves “True Hollywood Story” will chronicle Deen’s personal life, her recent racism scandal and its subsequent backlash is likely still a touchy subject. In another preview clip, Deen’s sons do talk about the legal and business problems that came after Deen’s N-word admission came to light.
“True Hollywood Story: Paula Deen” premieres on E! on Oct. 14 at 10 p.m. ET. Will you be tuning into this E! special on Deen?
