Paula Deen’s Career: Gone With the Wind

Celebrity Tax Deductions

DON’T MESS WITH TAXES DEPT.

Today is tax day! And you know what that means: um...it’s the day you pay your taxes! (Sorry, the name is kind of a giveaway...)

The important thing is that he changed his name to improve himself. We hope that others will follow his fine example and change their names as well.
