Have you ever waited so long at a restaurant for a waiter to bring the check that, even though you enjoyed the food, you swore never to eat there again?

Or how about that awkward moment after a meal with friends, when the check arrives and conversation stops because someone has to figure out how to split the bill fairly?

Celebrity chef Paula Deen’s sons staunchly defended their mother Tuesday, saying allegations of racism are false “character assassination.”

“Neither one of our parents ever taught us to be bigoted toward any other person for any reason,” Bobby Deen told CNN’s “New Day” in an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo.

Bon Voyage, Abby!

Today one of my favorite humans to walk this planet is leaving for Paris for 5 weeks. If you don’t know Abby, then you should. She has the kindest heart and the most beautiful smile.
