“I feel like ‘embattled’ or ‘disgraced’ will always follow my name. It’s like that black football player who recently came out. He said, ‘I just want to be known as a football player. I don’t want to be known as a gay football player.’ I know exactly what he’s saying. I’m fighting to get my name back.”

Paula Deen fights to get her name back in this week’s People and loses the battle. Miserably. I wonder if Paula could have chosen another comparison, any other comparison that didn’t include the words “disgraced,” “black” and “gay” in the same breath? At the very least couldn’t she have humanized Michael Sam by using his name? Instead, she only succeeded in further proving her ignorance. Despite her embattled, disgraced existence since her N-word scandal, she still has plenty of bacon in the bank ($75 million form a private investment firm to be exact) and a new restaurant opening near Tennessee’s Dollywood theme park.

Paula Deen Loses 5-Book Deal

Paula Deen Dropped By Target

Just when you thought there were no more blows left to be dealt to Paula Deen comes this pretty painful one: NBC News reports that company No. 11 is severing ties. Random House imprint Ballantine Books won’t go ahead with a planned printing of her new cookbook. Adding to the ouch: The cookbook in question is Paula Deen’s New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up—that’s right, the one that shot to No. 1 on Amazon thanks to an avalanche of pre-orders in the wake of her n-word scandal. It was set to come out in October as the first book in a five-book deal, and Deen’s agent says the whole deal is kaput. Read more on Newser…

Target And Novo Nordisk Drop Paula Deen

Paula Deen Dropped By Target

As Paula Deen was dropped by seemingly every company she’s ever been associated with, Novo Nordisk continued to say it would stand by her—but even that relationship appears to have frayed. The diabetes drug maker that partnered with Deen as she announced she had the disease today announced it is suspending the relationship “for now.” A rep tells Eater there is the “option” to resume the partnership in the future, “but it’s too early to say” whether that would happen. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Target also says it’s severing its relationship with Deen. It’ll “phase out” her cooking merchandise and won’t be ordering more, a rep tells TMZ. Read more on Newser…

Paula Deen Cries On "The Today Show"
"Would I have fired me. Knowing me? No."

Paula Deen made her much anticipated appearance on “The Today Show” this morning and attempted to convince Matt Lauer and the public that she is not a racist. Deen insisted that she only ever used the n-word once, during the incident mentioned in her deposition, and went on to say, “If there’s anyone out there that has never said something that they wish they could take back, please pick up that stone and throw it so hard at my head that it kills me. Please. I want to meet you. I is what I is and I’m not changing.” And neither is my opinion of you, Paula. Bye, y’all! Watch the full interview above. [MSNBC]

Paula Deen racism

“Paula and Bubba just gave us beer and alcohol and I don’t even drink.  It was insulting and unfair.  I was like, ‘Pay me! She knew I had just gotten married.  I had a baby on the way.  I needed the money and I was the only one to step up and complain over it because half of the kitchen just needed their jobs.  I was fired over it in the end because I’m not afraid to speak my mind.”

––Oh, Paula, Paula, Paula. This is the new claim made by an African-American oyster cook that was employed at one of Paula Deen’s restaurants from 2008 to 2010. He claims that Deen threatened to fire her employees if they did not work overtime at the parties she held at her Savannah, Georgia, mansion. It’s been a (rightfully!) rough week for Deen, who last week publicly apologized for racist comments and lost her show at the Food Network. Stay tuned for more dodgy stories coming out. [Radar Online]

“The whole entire waiter staff was middle-aged black men, and they had on beautiful white jackets with a black bow tie. I mean, it was really impressive. That restaurant represented a certain era in America … after the Civil War, during the Civil War, before the Civil War … It was not only black men, it was black women … I would say they were slaves.”

– Holy fucking hell Paula Deen. The Food TV personality admitted that she’d hired black cater waiters to simulate pre-Civil War-era slaves for a colonial-themed wedding. The statement was made during her deposition in regards to a lawsuit in which former black employees of her Savannah, Georgia, restaurant claimed Deen and her brother Bubba forced them to use separate bathrooms and repeatedly used the N-word.

According to Lisa Jackson, who worked as a general manager at the Savannah outpost, Deen was prone to making offensive comments about black people. In her deposition, Jackson said that Deen once told her,”Well what I would really like is a bunch of little n*****s to wear long-sleeve white shirts, black shorts and black bow ties, you know in the Shirley Temple days, they used to tap dance around. Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn’t it? But we can’t do that because the media would be on me about that.” Keep reading »
