Paula Deen Wants to Give You $25,000 in the Real Women of Philadelphia Contest

Down-home Southern gal Paula Deen is looking for the real women of Philadelphia.

Now, before you start thinking this is a new Bravo reality show and why the heck is Ms. Deen hawking the City of Brotherly Love, think again...

She's talking about Philadelphia... cream cheese.

The contest asks women to send in recipes via YouTube video. Sixteen finalists will be flown to Savannah to hang out with Deen and compete in a live cooking contest. Four winners will each win $25,000 and have the opportunity to contribute to cookbooks and make appearances for Philadelphia Cream Cheese (probably at some county fair, but hey -- that's show biz).

Best part about this contest? Watching Paula Deen's video, where she looks kinda drunk (as always).
