Bobby Deen (born April 28, 1970) is a television cook, TV personality, and restaurant manager. He is the second son of Paula Deen and with his brother, Jamie, operates her restaurant, The Lady & Sons, in Savannah, Georgia. He also frequently appears on her shows, Paula's Home Cooking and Paula's Party. He and Jamie had their own show, Road Tasted, starting July 11, 2006. The Deen brothers eventually decided that they wanted to devote more time to their family restaurant, and thus did not continue on as hosts of Road Tasted. The original show has since been changed into Road Tasted with the Neelys featuring Food Network hosts Pat Neely and Gina Neely.
In 2006, Deen was named one of the "50 Most Eligible Bachelors" by People Magazine. On a 2009 televised episode of Paula Deen's cooking show, he was romantically linked to Katy Mixon, who was introduced as his girlfriend. They also appeared together in a published photo in the April 2010 issue of Food Network magazine. Bobby announced his engagement to Claudia Lovera on April 24, 2013 and discussed the event on the Fox News morning show, Fox & Friends. In July 2013, Bobby married his Fiance Claudia Lovera at a ceremony at his mother Paula Deen's House.
