Paula Deen is back!
The celeb chef, 66, made her first public appearance since settling the racial discrimination lawsuit that practically destroyed her empire, and was moved to tears after receiving a 10-minute standing ovation at the Metro Cooking & Entertaining Show in Houston on Saturday. "These are tears of joy, y'all," she said. "This is my first time out in three months. … The one place I wanted to make my first step out was in Texas. You are forgiving folks with hearts as big as your state." She added, "We all experience pain in some way, but pain is also a good thing because it makes you grow."
Following her emotional outburst, Deen quickly pulled herself together and, after joining sons Jamie and Bobby for a cooking demo, strutted up to a cameraman's lens and proclaimed, "I'm back!"

Jimmy Fallon is a dad?!
The "Late Night" host, 38, and his wife, Nancy Juvonen Fallon, 46, welcomed a baby girl on Tuesday morning at 6:21 a.m. ET, Fallon's rep confirms to omg!. People was the first to report the happy news.
Naturally, the first-time parents are "overjoyed about the arrival of their beautiful daughter."
And so is the rest of the world, particularly since nobody seemed to have a clue they were expecting!
The baby girl, whose name has yet to be revealed, joins the family's golden retriever, Gary Frick.
Fallon, who will be taking over as host of "The Tonight Show" next year, wed the film producer — whom he has described as "the coolest girl in the world" — in December 2007. The couple met while the funnyman was starring alongside Drew Barrymore in 2005's "Fever Pitch." The movie was produced by Flower Films, which his wife and Barrymore co-own.
Congrats to Jimmy and Nancy on their new bundle of joy!
Here's hoping we don't have to add Jimmy to our weird celebrity baby names gallery!
"Glee" star Cory Monteith was found dead in his room at Vancouver's Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel Saturday. He was 31.
The actor's publicist, Melissa Kates, confirmed the news: "We are so saddened to confirm that the reports on the death of Cory Monteith are accurate. We are in shock and mourning this tragic loss."
During a press conference, Vancouver Police said the actor had gone out with friends on Friday evening, but video footage shows he was alone when he returned to his room in the early morning hours.
Monteith had been staying at the hotel since July 6, and was due to check out on Saturday. When he missed the scheduled check-out time at noon, hotel staff went to his room on the 21st floor.
The cause of death is unknown, but no foul play is suspected. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
Paris Jackson has reportedly left the hospital following her June 5 suicide attempt.
The 15-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson checked out of UCLA Medical Center Tuesday and is said to be heading to an undisclosed residential treatment center, according to People.
The rehab facility was chosen by Jackson's grandmother Katherine and her biological mother Debbie Rowe under the advisement of UCLA doctors.
"The feeling is that Paris is still a danger to herself," a source told People. "Both Katherine and Debbie want her to get the help that she needs."
On June 29, Rowe tweeted out a message on behalf of her daughter: "My daughter has asked that I extend a huge thank you for all of your prayers and support. She is strong like her father."
Take a look at Paris's life in photos:
Kerry Washington definitely knows how to keep a secret.
The "Scandal" star, 36, quietly married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho. While the remote location was sure to keep the paparazzi away, was it really necessary when no one even knew they were a couple in the first place?

According to TerezOwens.com, who first reported the nuptial news on Tuesday, Asomugha and Washington have been dating since last summer.

Jamie-Lynn Sigler certainly had a lot to celebrate this Valentine's Day.
Not only is the "Guys With Kids" star engaged to minor league baseball player Cutter Dykstra, but she also announced this week that she is expecting her first child!
Sigler, 31, was snapped while shopping in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday with her adorable pooch. Though the actress looked cute and casual in her jeans, a striped top, and sandals, there was nothing casual about her massive bling! Get a load of that rock.
The mom-to-be also popped into the Cheesecake Factory to pick up some sweets for her sweetie (either that or she was having some major pregnancy cravings) and shared a photo of the delicious treats on Instagram.

That’s bad timing for anyone who happens to be in the Big Apple for New York Fashion Week, is trying to get to Los Angeles for this weekend's Grammy Awards, or a certain someone who happens to be hosting this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live."
