July 26, 2013 (Los Angeles, CA) – Embattled celebrity chef Paula Deen’s spokesperson exclusively tells ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT that Deen’s employee Dora Charles, has issues with Deen about money and not racism. According to Deen’s rep, “She [Charles] receives a salary of more than $70,000 per year, plus profit sharing and benefits. For 20 years she has been paid a fair wage for her work, but she feels she deserves even more money. She [Charles] claimed to be a friend of Paula Deen’s but is now trying to cash in on the current situation.” Deen is facing accusations of using racial slurs against her staff.
Charles is being represented by the same lawyer as Lisa Jackson, a former employee of Deen’s that is currently suing her.
