Paula Deen is making a comeback.
She has created a new company that touts her Southern cuisine.
Paula Deen Ventures will launch less than a year after she lost a television contact and many sponsors over a racial slur.
Her new company includes restaurants, cruises, cookbooks and other Deen products.
Deen is partnering with Najafi Media, a Phoenix-based company which specializes in consumer distribution.
