While Paula Deen was co-hosting the fourth-hour on Wednesday, TODAY's Hoda grilled the celebrity chef about her recent shenanigans at the South Beach Wine and Food Festival, where she got a little crazy riding and licking Food Network star Robert Irvine.
Hoda: A chef lathered himself up with a little bit of butter…
Paula Deen: He knew I was gonna lick it. I knew I wasn’t gonna let him waste my butter on his belly.
Hoda: So that happened. And then later it progressed until you were somehow riding him.
Paula Deen: All of a sudden, he got down on his hands and knees and I said "well, what does he want? He apparently wants to be ridden."
Hoda: This caught the attention of some Website people. They started sending in things that Paula Deen should ride… Look, there you are riding Jimmy Fallon!
Paula Deen: Yes, I love Jimmy Fallon.
Watch the rest of the hysterical interview, after which Paula tweeted: "Was that fun or what!"
