Paula Deen is ready for a do over

Paula Deen is back. Or at least she's on her way, if the headlines are to be believed.

According to a number of reports on Feb. 12, including one from "Good Morning America" via Yahoo! News, the shamed chef earned between $75 million and $100 million through investments made through Najafi Companies.

This is good news for Paula Deen, who had a tough time last summer when she was accused of being guilty of sexual and racial discrimination. Lisa Jackson sued her boss and so Deen was deposed. When that happened, she said she has been guilty of using language that is definitely considered racist.

Deen has also been taken to task for using unhealthy ingredients in her dishes while suffering from type 2 diabetes. She took the disease at its scary face value and did all she could to lose a lot of weight to keep fit, unfortunately losing some fans in the process.

So now Paula Deen is ready for her do over. Does she deserve a second (or is it third) chance? That's for you to decide.
