- March 4th (today), 9-10 pm – Oprah is embarking on a new Prime Time Series on her network called Oprah’s Next Chapter. This episode she and Gayle King visit Paula Deen.
After an exclusive, in-depth tour of her home, the “Queen of Southern Cuisine” takes Oprah and Gayle on some of her favorite backyard adventures. Dressed in their pajamas and rubber boots, the ladies bait their hooks and hit the catfish pond with bamboo fishing rods. They pick fresh eggs and check out the hens in Paula’s unbelievable chicken coop. Then, they sit down for a rare, revealing and intimate interview in Paula’s historic dock house. An emotional Paula talks about her private and debilitating struggle with agoraphobia, the loss of her parents, her obsession with her own death, her tumultuous first marriage, subsequent divorce and how she found the strength to overcome it all. Later, Paula introduces her husband Michael Groover, her brother Bubba Hiers, her Aunt Peggy and her TV personality and cookbook author sons, Jamie Deen and Bobby Deen as they all enjoy brunch. At the table, Oprah asks Paula’s sons what it’s like working for their famous mother and they don’t hold back. Paula also talks about her ten-year affair with a married man and preparing herself for love with her second husband.
