Paula Deen Museum!!

Paula Deen's childhood home in Albany, Georgia, may be transformed into a museum. Local businesswoman B.J. Fletcher started working on the project around two years ago. She has since teamed up with Paula's first husband, Jimmy Deen, to help get the museum off the ground. Jimmy put Fletcher in touch with Paula, who was thrilled by the idea. The TV cook has given the project her blessing: "It just takes my breath away that folks back in Albany would consider doing something like this. I'm just trying to wrap my head around this incredible honor. I would want something like this to be a symbol of hope for people looking to make their lives better."

Then she added two sticks of butter!
