A year after the Food Network gave her the boot, Paula Deen has announced she's launching her own Internet cooking channel.

In a statement, the disgraced cook said, "Guess who's going digital, y'all! I'm so excited about my new online network and can't wait to show everyone what we've been working on."

The Paula Deen Network, which is set to launch in September, will be a paid subscription-based service featuring original programming and interactive content.

Paula is hot on the comeback trail after her racial slur scandal last year, which led to the Food Network dropping her as well as the loss of many endorsement deals. Later this month, she'll kick off on a live, multi-city tour.
