At the daytime Grammys, Kathy is treated as well as an A-lister! She, Tom, and Tiffany anxiously await the results of Best Comedy Album, but as Kathy suspected, George Carlin takes home the honor. Irritated and disappointed, Kathy seeks consolation from her Emmys.
Luckily, Paula Deen sends Kathy a big surprise, as well as an invitation to her home in Georgia! Team Griffin along with Mike McDonald excitedly travel to the great Ms. Deen's home. Once there, Kathy finds that Paula has a great sense of humor, even when Kathy accidentally swats her with a tree branch!
Besides pretending she knows a thing or two about cooking via her cake soup recipe, Kathy gets some wonderful, A-list advice on how to maintain a business. She and Team Griffin also get to help Paula in her restaurant, which turns out unfavorably for Paula.
Although Kathy tries to spend the night with Paula's single, successful son, she ends up just having to share a room with Mike McDonald.
