Vulture and The Today Show teamed up to name the 13 Pop Culture Standouts of 2013, and, in the year of food controversy, Nigella Lawson was blessedly left off the list. LET HER LIVE HER LIFE.
However, Cronuts and Paula Deen weren’t so lucky. Both landed in prominent spots on the list, with contributors wondering whether the scorned Food Network host could pull a Phil Robertson, and make a comeback in 2014. See: our best 2014 prediction re: that.
Food Network hires Paula Deen to host a competition where 15 y/o girls cook Duck Dynasty hunt hauls, judged by Phil Robertson. #predictions
