Paula Deen — DRUNK On ‘Today’ Show … Or Just Goofy??


She INSISTED the morning mojito she sipped on was of the virgin variety … but Paula Deen”s goofy, salsa-dancing, chicken-ball obsessed appearance on “Today” had the Internet asking … was she drunk

Deen and her son kicked it with the morning show gang in Miami this morning to talk food — but Deen was taking the conversation all over the place … and people on Twitter began to question her sobriety.

She started with an impromptu hip-shaking salsa dance … before talking about a run-in with a skunk that went down before the show began. Deen also tried to make the hosts smell her hands.

$(function() $(“#poll-350-15d6df18aa16d67b86fcd298e7882c8d div form ul li”) .children() .not($(“div.styledRadio”)) .filter(“input:radio”) .screwDefaultButtons( checked: “url(”, unchecked: “url(”, width: 20, height: 20, pollid: “350-15d6df18aa16d67b86fcd298e7882c8d”, ); });

Doesn”t seem like she was hammered … just her usual loud, uninhibited self. 

Still, we gotta ask …
