Paula Deen got emotional Saturday at her first public appearance since her N-word scandal broke in June.
The disgraced cook fought back tears, according to the Houston Chronicle, as she was greeted by cheers and a standing ovation from the audience at the Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show at Reliant Center. She told the crowd of about 1,500 people, "These are tears of joy, y'all. I've said all along that the one place I'd want to make my first step back out is Texas. Y'all's hearts are as big as your state."
However, just before the event Paula told TMZ she doesn't need to make a comeback because she "never went anywhere."
