If you love butter, Southern cooking, more butter, and Paula Deen you are going to be super excited to learn that Paula Deen's childhood home is being turned into a museum. A group of investors recently purchased the Albany, Georgia home and have plans to turn it into a lucractive tourist destination.
Paula Deen said she was deeply touched by the desire to turn her home into a museum. She may even help furnish the space with real Paula Deen artifcats.
"That house holds so many memories for me," Paula Deen said of the Whitney Avenue residence. "All the cheerleader cookouts, the spend-the-night parties. ... And it just so happens I can pretty much furnish it like it was. I still have mama's living room set and daddy's -- they had separate rooms later on because daddy had to sleep with a night light on and mama couldn't.
Will there or won't there be a bronze statue of Paula holding a stick of butter placed in the garden? We don't know, but this is one rumor we hope is true.
