Coming Soon to Food Network: Paula Deen People

Paula Deen will be back on Food Network in the fall. People magazine reports that the embattled TV chef will appear in some episodes of "Home for Dinner," a show that's hosted by her son Jamie.

The episodes were taped before a controversy over Paula Deen's use of the N-word led to a decision by Food Network not to renew her contract.

"Just got word #HomeforDinner with mom is being aired in September. I'll keep y'all posted. But, you know, watch it anyway," Jamie Deen wrote on Twitter.

Paula Deen, 66, is living a quiet life in her hometown of Savannah, Ga., after the media storm and loss of business deals that followed her admission about using the racial epithet, the story adds. It's not clear whether she'll make a full-time return to television, the article notes.
