I'm shocked they dropped her, as she makes so much money for them and was already going on the apology tour. I wonder if there was something going on we don't know about, that they did know.

Most of the articles on this seem to be full of comments making her a martyr. I can see her getting a gig on Fox News.

This article is the type of love letter I'd been seeing, and one of the reasons I was surprised.

Someone made a response to her first apology.

this is why I have more respect for FN now than I did bc they put what is right over profit, which seems so rare in today's society

I wonder what the other FN stars are thinking about this matter....?

Giada: "I should have known her beliefs all along when at that network party she called me 'Mrs. Chef Boyardee' and ordered me to carve a stick of butter in the shape of the Leaning Tower of Pisa."

Barefoot Contessa: "Now I'M the chief big girl in this game! Good riddance, you hick! HaHa!"

Sandra Lee: "Whenever we stood right by each other, we resembled the number '10'. Anyway.... Cocktail Time!"

If it wasn't for Paula Deen, the Neelys would have never had a show (they aren't on Food Network, anymore, though), after they appeared on her show, they got a deal for their own. I know people want to pile on and label Paula an awful person, but she's pretty real on her show and her interactions with black people didn't suggest that she's this over the top racist. She hasn't even told her side yet and we know that lawsuits have a lot of muck that isn't always that truthful. I'm in the minority here, but I honestly can't hate on Paula Deen.

OK, honestly -

Do I think Paula Deen is some cross-burning, gigantic racist? No. But she should have known better, especially as someone in the public eye. Even to briefly (according to her) contemplate an "Old Plantation Wedding", with all-black servers, is irksome.

Other than that, I've ALWAYS found her disgusting (racist or not). Sorry.

People have the right to defend Paula and its understandable considering she's been such a loved figure for so long, but I dont get why people act like those that are appaled by her actions/words are wrong! Really? Like Im supposed to be a-okay with these recent revelations and continue to love her inspite of her degradation of black people? HELL NO, I dont feel wrong about being dissapointed in what Ive read and disgusted that it came from her and Im not sorry she got fired.

Well, I guess it's as good a time as any to ask: why is Paula Deen? Granted, I'm no die-hard viewer of the Food Network, but I never understood why she became popular for making food that African-Americans have perfected for centuries...

bc she has a great bubbly personality that is very welcoming and comfortable. She just gave off the image of a very nice grandma. Its really her screen presence and way she worked the camera that made her popular; not really her food, which always faced criticism.

anyways stuff I found on Tumblr

That is the irony in all of this....
