Paula Deen has created a new company. The Queen’s new venture will include restaurants, cookbooks, and other Paula Deen products. She is partnering with a Phoenix-based company, Najafi Media, which specializes in consumer distribution. The private-equity firm Najafi Companies is investing $75 million to $100 million to help Paula Deen make a comeback, according to Fox News.

Paula Deen is known for her southern cuisine. In January 2012, Paula Deen announced that she has had type 2 diabetes for the past three years. Deen has faced extensive criticism for the high amounts of fat, salt, and sugar in her recipes. It was also disclosed that Paula Deen is a paid spokesperson for the Danish pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk, the main export of which is insulin. She was called a hypocrite for continuing to promote her high-fat and sugar diet while disclosing her medical condition only when it benefited her in representing the drug company to market their diabetes management program.
