The rewards of the working relationship come with being able to watch her children develop and grow and also become a closer-knit family.
Paula is best known for her excellent culinary skills, and her sons appear to have followed her footsteps.
In a recent interview with Home Business Magazine, the TV host shared her experience working with Jamie and Bobby.
According to Paula, working with them has been beneficial and challenging as well.
The challenging part has got to do with maintaining a balance between the family’s friendships and business. In that sense, she said that one has to be careful not to overstep boundaries that usually wouldn’t occur with any other person.
The rewards of the working relationship come with being able to watch her children develop and grow and also become a closer-knit family. The sons did take Mama’s lessons to heart and have become great stars as well.
Paula's restaurant, The Lady and Sons, has grown a lot over the years. However, her family still keeps a watchful eye on it today.
Though married since 2004 to Michael Groover, Paula, who has published fifteen cookbooks, uses the last name, Deen, from her first marriage.
