Melanie Hutsell does Paula Deen, to Paula Deen

Melanie Hutsell performed on Saturday Night Live for three seasons in the early 1990s, and by far her most recognizable character was her portrayal of Jan Brady (you may also get partial credit for thinking it was her sorority sister, Di). But what's Hutsell doing now? Raising children. Also, mastering her impersonation of TV chef Paula Deen. In September, she got to surprise Deen on one of her Food Network tapings, and that recently aired in May. Here that is (Hutsell also talked to her hometown newspaper about being Paula Deen). Cackles all around! (thx, Eliot!)
