Paula Deen has a net worth of about $14 million. This celebrity cook operates a restaurant with her two sons and is an author of several bestselling books on kitchen recipes. She is also an actor and an Emmy Award winner for her television cooking show, ‘Paula’s Home Cooking.’ She started her business empire from a humble beginning in Georgia. She started as a caterer before venturing into the restaurant business.

Paula Deen’s business empire is large and well diversified. For instance, she earns about $7 million from her merchandising deals with Wal-Mart, Home Depo and Target Corp.
