By now you’ve heard that Paula Deen was fired by the Food Network for having made racist statements sometime in her past. Proof of this is found in her answers to questions in a deposition in a lawsuit brought against Paula by an employee at one of her restaurants. Apparently she admitted to using the “n” word.
Paula’s contract with the Food Channel was scheduled to end soon, and rather than renew the contract (or complete negotiations on an extension), the Food Channel, in Donald Trump style, said “You’re fired!”
The first thing I thought was “I wonder if Oprah will pick up Paula for her network.” Wouldn’t that be ironic? In the meantime, we will all miss the sound of Paula’s voice and penchant for using lots of butter in every recipe.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
