Get ready for an inside look at the life of Paula Deen.

"I had a little rough patch this summer. But you know it was an opportunity to learn. I learned a lot about myself. I certainly learned a lot about my business," the celeb chef said, and now fans can get a more intimate perspective of the Southern cook during True Hollywood Story: Paula Deen, premiering on E! this Monday (Oct. 14) at 10 p.m.

So what happens now that her discrimination case was dismissed?

"At the end of the day, Paula Deen is driving Paula Deen's boat and it's up to her to rebuild from the bottom up," Deen's attorney, Jonna Spilbor, tells E! News.

Meanwhile, her son, Jamie Deen, hopes that his mother's image prior to the N-word controversy, and all that came with it, returns.

"I'm just so pleased that the legal side is behind us. Who knows what we have going forward. I hope people are able to see it for what it is and continue to trust my mom," he tells us.

Make sure to tune in to E!'s True Hollywood Story: Paula Deen, which premieres Monday, Oct. 14 at 10 p.m.
