Paula Deen's future doesn't look very bright at the moment. On April 4, US Magazine shared the news that Uncle Bubba's, which is one of her restaurants, closed down. The new problem is that the employees were not warned at all that they would be losing their job.

This has been open since 2004 and is located in Savannah. Bubba Hiers, the actual owner and operator, wanted to explore doing something else with this property so he decided to shut it down. This is Paula's brother that she shared ownership with of this restaurant. On April 3, they made a small announcement. You can read it at this link.

The main problem is that they didn't give the employees any notice at all to find a new job. Now they are all out there looking for a new job and Paula Deen is not their boss anymore. She is still moving on with her life since all of the scandal but things like this are going to make it harder for her to do.
