Trending on: Google Trends

Why: Spreading quickly on the Web: A National Enquirer story in which Paula Deen "confesses" she has said "the N-word on several occasions" and talked about "wanting black waiters to play the role of slave in a wedding party she was planning." The revelations came to light after one of Deen's restaurant managers, Lisa Jackson, sued the celeb chef for discrimination in a whopping $1.2 million lawsuit. [ USA Today ]
