Paula's Party was a Food Network show hosted by Paula Deen first broadcast on September 29, 2006 and continuing through to 2008. Unlike her other Food Network show, Paula's Home Cooking, Paula's Party was originally taped in front of a small audience at Uncle Bubba's Oyster House in Savannah, Georgia, and Deen herself frequently interacted with audiencemembers. In 2008, taping of the show moved from Savannah to Food Network studios in New York City.
In each episode, Deen offered help to audience members who had culinary problems. This format allowed her to be friendly with her guests; frequently she sat on the laps of various male audience members and fed them sensuously, often making food-related double entendres.
Almost all of Paula's family have appeared on the show: sons Jamie Deen and Bobby Deen, husband Michael Groover, daughter-in-law Brooke Deen, grandson Jack Deen, brother Bubba Hiers (owner of Uncle Bubba's Oyster House), and ex-husband Jimmy Deen.
On June 21, 2013, Food Network announced that they would not renew Deen's contract due to controversy surrounding Deen's use of a racial slur and racist jokes in her restaurant, effectively cancelling reruns of the series.
