Paula Deen — N-Word Will Stay Under Wraps

Exclusive 0628_paula_deen_article_tmzVideo of Paula Deen openly admitting to using the n-word will never see the light of day … so ruled the judge in the $1.2 million lawsuit filed by one of Paula”s ex-employees, who accused Paula of promoting a racist and sexist work environment.

You”ll recall, the video deposition — in which Paula says “yes of course” she used the n-word in the past — precipitated her epic self-destruction, with scores of business partners ducking for cover and costing her millions.

We”re told the video is “colorful,” but you”ll probably never see it … at least if the judge has his way.

Deen was obviously terrified the employee would leak the deposition video to the media … so last week, she filed docs asking the judge to block its release.
