Paula Deen is back in the news, and this time it is not for promoting diabetes-inducing recipes, making racist remarks, or mistreating her staff! Variety reports that she and her second husband Michael Groover are putting their lavish Wilmington Island home up for sale.

The sprawling estate is located on exclusive Wilmington Island, near Savannah, Georgia.
The sitting room features understated decor, including multiple chandeliers, paintings, and a piano.
The 'French Caribbean style' home boasts lush gardens and tropical plans.
Deen loves her chicken — both to eat, AND to decorate her pantry!

Of course there is a pool!
Green salads may not be her specialty, but she certainly enjoys a green garden.
A winding path leads to her well-appointed guesthouse.
The estate is called "Riverbend" because of its enviable location on — you guessed it — a river bend!

A gazebo provides much-needed shade from the brutal Georgia sun.
She may have more pots in the garden than she does in the kitchen!
For those who will not be staying in the big house, there are plenty of smaller houses on the estate.
