A Visit from Tom the Turkey

By Paula Deen

I have been itchin’ to share this funny video with everyone since the day we filmed it. On my last holiday photo shoot I had a special guest come and visit me. When I first heard that there was going to a live turkey on set, I was a little nervous. I had never seen a live turkey up close before. The day of the shoot, I was introduced to Mr. Tom the Turkey, who showed up with his best foot forward- or should I say beak! Y’all, I have to tell you that he almost stole the show and my hair…he was such a handsome fellow. Watch the video below to see how our visit went! I’ll let you in on a little secret, I was real sore the morning after this photo was taken!
