They like her, they really do!  Paula Deen got a 10 minute standing ovation in Houston last Saturday.

It was her first public appearance since the "Troubles".  Paula was at a cooking convention in Houston.  Watch as she cries at all the love from the 15 hundred people in the audience.

Saturday's event was Paula's first public appearance since June when we saw her in that deposition talking about her past use of racial slurs. Within a few days the Food Network yanked her show off the air, and she lost a bunch of sponsors and endorsement deals and places to sell her stuff.

Looks like her fans still love her!
