Paula Deen Shouldn't Be Designing Clothes (VIDEO)

paula deenI really enjoy Paula Deen. I think she's a lot of fun to watch, and the fact that she's so un-calorie-conscious with her cooking makes me giggle uncontrollably. But even though I'm a fan, I've got to be honest: The celebrity chef has NO business designing her own clothing line.

Deen revealed her fashion aspirations to Jay Leno last night on The Tonight Show. It went a little something like this:

Paula: Did you know I'm getting my own clothing line?

Jay: No, I didn't know that!

Paula: Yes, I'm so excited. This is one of it [looks down at her shirt].

I'll do Paula a solid and set her hilariously poor grammar aside. First Deen came out with the butter-flavored lip balm, now she's launching this clothing line ... what's next? Deen 2012?


OK, so that's a bit of a stretch. But still, the celebrity clothing line trend is totally out of control and this proves it! Dean is an excellent chef. Sure, she's had her fair share of silly recipes -- but the woman has created an entire empire based on her culinary skills. Why she's now deciding she wants to put down her paring knife and pick up her sketchbook is beyond me.

I can only imagine what kinds of pieces will be in Deen's line. She is known to wear some pretty frumpy stuff (no offense, Paula), ranging from oversized jackets and blazers to smocks and tunics galore. I envision the entire collection to consist of bejeweled tunics and matching jeggings with stirrups on the bottom. Oh, and for sure it will have loads of baubles. Because we all know how much PD loves to accessorize, especially with larger-than-life earrings!

The details of the line haven't been announced just yet -- but I'm guessing it will be a big partnership with a major retailer like Kohl's. They are taking on a lot of celebrity endorsements lately.

Watch Paula reveal her big fashion plans to Jay Leno below (skip to around the 4:55 mark):
