    ATLANTA -- Celebrity chef Paula Deen got an unexpected serving of ham -- across her face.

    The Food Network star was helping unload 25,000 pounds of donated meat for an Atlanta food bank on Monday when someone threw one of the hams like a football and accidentally smacked her.

    Deen tells WGCL-TV: "I thought it busted my lip, but it didn't."

    Though smiles and laughter, Deen added: "I'm OK. It just knocked me for a little bit."

    She says she was unloading hams when she tossed one to a man, who then said "Back at 'ya." Thinking he meant it only as a sentiment, she turned around to get another ham when the errant swine came at her.

    "He really meant, 'Back at 'ya.'"

    Later, she tweeted: "I haven't met the ham that could stop me yet!"

    THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

    I only meant to pump that throw, but it slipped out of my hands. BTW, for the books, Paula is is a fine cook, but not recognized as a chef in the professioonal world.

    Roger that, she can cook, but I wouldn't chef her.

    I'm glad to see that she spends time on charity too. I was sorry to see she got hit by the ham, cause I really dig her personality and southern charm.

    The difference between a chef and a cook.

    A Chef Gives You A Tiny Plate And A Big Bill.

    A Good Cook Makes Sure You Don't Leave Hungry.

    Her sons had a great show on Food Network. I can't remember what it was called, but they'd travel around to places that specialized in products that were shipped. My wife and I used to watch it and write down the info in case we ever got the urge to order some of that stuff. It was a cool show. Better than a lot of the stuff they run now. Does anybody remember that show or what it was called?

    I believe it was called "Road Tasted". I also remember watching a few times and liking it. I always thought both she and her sons were good TV personalities.

    Nice lady, not as funny as she thinks she is, but still a nice lady. Sorry that she got beaned and not wishing her any ill-will but I have seen her horse around before and worried that she could get hurt or hurt someone else. She took it on the chin, so to speak and got right back into the game. Just another working schmuck trying to make a buck.



    Now the wife and I both want to know how she gets her teeth as white as she does for all of her magazine and bookcovers?
