“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…
