It seems as though Paula Deen's E! True Hollywood Story might not be so "true" after all. According to Gawker, the documentary is nothing but "revisionist propaganda."
The website reports that while the one-hour episode, which aired Monday, did touch upon Deen's recent racism scandal, it appeared to frame Deen as a victim of circumstance, and conveniently ignored her wish to get black waiters to play the role of slaves at a plantation-themed wedding party and the two disastrous apology videos she posted after canceling her first Todayshow appearance in June.
The second season of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown debuts Sunday on CNN (8e/7c) with the wanderlust-filled celebrity chef making his first trip to film in Israel, West Bank and Gaza. His other stops in the next eight episodes include Sicily, Detroit, Copenhagen, Spain and New Mexico. The Biz got him in one place long enough to provide a taste of what's coming up on his Emmy-nominated series...
G4 viewers can breathe a sigh of relief.
The cable channel is staying alive in a surprise decision made by NBC Universal to launch its new cable network, Esquire, on Style network instead of G4, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Style, which is...
Paula Deen, Anthony Bourdain
Anthony Bourdain and Paula Deen have been known to get into some very heated public arguments, Bourdain says he's not getting a kick out of Deen's recent troubles.
Paula Deen is coming under fire — but this time it has nothing to do with her cooking or Anthony Bourdain.

Although this season of The Taste began with a single spoonful of food from each contestant, on Tuesday's finale, the remaining cooks served the judges three spoons in an effort to take home the top prize. So, which cook won? Let's break it down:
Ludo Lefebvre and Sarah Schiear
The competition started with one tasting spoon, and ultimately there can be only one winner.
On the season finale of ABC's The Taste (Tuesday at 9/8c), special guest chef/restauranteur Jose Andres will drop by to help determine the series' first-ever champ. Nigella Lawson is the odd lady out since none of her team members advanced to the finals, which means the remaining judges' contestants will go head-to-head to win a grand prize of $100,000, a new car and a nifty Taste trophy.
Who will win? Chef Ludo Lefebvre talked to TVGuide.com to size up the Final 4:
Casey Wilson, Elisha Cuthbert
ABC is sending Happy Endings to the Friday night graveyard at the end of March, the network announced late Wednesday night.
Replacing the sitcom in its current Tuesdays at 9/8c timeslot, will be Anthony Bourdain's new cooking competition show The Taste, which currently airs at 8/7c on Tuesdays. New episodes of Celebrity Wife Swap will take over the 8/7c timeslot.
Although Brian Malarkey may be the mentor with the least amount of TV exposure on The Taste, the Season 3 Top Chef finalist is no slouch when it comes to food.
The chef owns six restaurants with partner James Brennan and will expand to 15 more nationally in the next five years. In fact, he's the only chef on the judging panel — which also includes Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson and Ludo Lefebvre — who is working in an actively open restaurant on a day-to-day basis, although Lefebvre has a non-pop-up endeavor opening soon.
"Trust me. It's game on!"
Chef Ludo Lefebvre is psyched for viewers to watch Tuesday's episode of The Taste (8/7c, ABC), when the culinary reality series shifts from the audition to competition rounds. Now that he and his fellow mentors -- Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson and Brian Malarkey -- have chosen their four-person teams of home cooks and professional chefs, it's time to pit them against each other. Beyond the increased heat in the kitchen, the possibility of eliminating one of their own team members during the blind taste-test drove the mentors to drink.
