Paula Deen's plans for world domination haven't stopped with butter-flavored lip gloss. Last night while making meatloaf on The Tonight Show, she told host Jay Leno that she was getting her own clothing line. There wasn't any follow-up, and Google seems not to have heard of the venture, but if Paula made butter-scented aprons we'd probably wear them. Or at least sniff them.
The full video of Paula on The Tonight Show is on our sibling site Eater. If you don't want to watch six full minutes of Our Lady of Bacon Grease attempting to cop a feel on Jay Leno, skip to the 4:58 mark.
