Paula Deen and Dr. E. Gordon Gee, met today in New York City. Their meeting was the culmination of an intense, one day, "think tank" meeting they had with Don Rickels, Don Imus, and Jim Tressel, the once credible football coach at Ohio State, and a possible co-conspirator with the aforementioned Dr. Gee. They will serve in an advisory capacity, to a new company DEGEE, possibly to be shortened to DG which will soon open their offices in Brooklyn, New York.
"Gordy and I have learned much in the last year. We want to pass on to others the sensitivity lessons that we have learned so others can avoid the pitfalls that we clumsily stumbled in to," the disgraced millionaire and self proclaimed queen of southern cooking chimed in.
Rickels is well known for his insulting remarks and of course, Imus's record speaks for itself. Tressel brings image creation to the table.
Harlan Curtis, freelance artist from Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, is designing a logo and working with a leading advertising agency in East Hanover, New Jersey, Dewey, Snowem and Howe, who will put together a complete advertising and marketing program to promote the new company.
The two main corporate characters are investing heavily from the millions they made from promoting their images, one as a cook and the other an educator, and a self proclaimed genius at fund raising. They also received some financing from the Madoff Trust Fund.
