8: Maid for Trouble
This May, police were called to the Georgia home of Food Network star Paula Deen, who reported $100,000 worth of jewelry was missing from her home. She and her husband told cops that they had fired their housekeeper, Mary Alice White, after they caught her stealing. Several days later, White was arrested allegedly trying to unload a pair of $18,000 earrings at a Savannah pawn shop. On the bright side, Deen's recipe for Thanksgiving Southern Cornbread Stuffing remains safely in her possession.
