Poor Paula Deen. The Food Network star apparently hired a housekeeper that was moonlighting as a grade-A jewelry snatcher. 

Mary Alice White has received 18 months of jail time, followed by six years of probation after pleading guilty to stealing jewelry from her former employers. The 47-year-old will also be required to repay $6,000 to Deen and her husband, Michael Groover, the Savannah Morning News reports.
