And Tuesday afternoon, she promised to see y'all soon in D.C. -- at the Metro Cooking and Entertaining Show, one of the few big partners that has pledged to stick by her.

After stops in Houston and Dallas, the Washington show will come to the convention center Nov. 2-3. Want to watch Deen's one-hour presentation? That will be $95. For brunch and a Paula photo-op? $140. For all of that plus a bag full of Paula goodies and primo seats and access to the "swanky Chill Lounge" -- you know, the Paula VIP Platinum package -- a mere $500.
