Paula Deen's Cooking Show Cancelled...



I guess you can say that Paula Deen's The Food Network show has sizzled to a crispy ending. Food Network issued a simple statement: “Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month.” Deen's cooking show was dropped after she was quoted making racist remarks and using the “N” word. Firing also arrives on the heels of Deen canceling an appearance on “Today” this morning, one she’d scheduled in order to address controversy surrounding her use of racial slurs. After nixing the interview with Matt Lauer last minute, Deen then posted an edited video apology online, only to take the YouTube video down and post a second version of the apology shortly thereafter. http://youtu.be/jkwbyNKC9Kg Deen has been a star attraction on the cable channel, which is owned by Scripps Networks Interactive, since 1999. She has starred in multiple cooking shows for the network, most recently “Paula’s Best Dishes,” since 2008. She made headlines when the National Enquirer got its hands on a videotaped deposition she gave in connection with a lawsuit filed against her last month. The former manager of a pair of restaurants Deen co-owned with her brother in Savannah, Ga., alleged they had engaged in acts of violence, discrimination and racism. She reportedly suggested in the deposition that black staffers at her restaurant dress up as slaves for a wedding her company was catering. I can't even comment on that - so I'll leave it alone.SMH...
