Yesterday afternoon, Food Network capped off a very long week for Paula Deen by firing her
. The three shows she has on the air are the reason she sells the cookbooks and gets all the endorsements. Those will all disappear now too. Do you think Philadelphia Cream Cheese wants her as their spokesperson any longer? Nope. Are you going to buy a Paula Deen cookbook? Nope. What about those drug makers who signed her to a huge deal last year. Say buh bye to that deal too.
Yesterday started off bad for Paula when she no showed a Today Show interview and then made two videos which she posted to You Tube in which she apologized for her actions. Neither was done very well and there was no real sincerity or apology in either. Later in the day she posted a third video which apologized to Matt Lauer for her Today Show no show. That is not going to help. They will find some other chef to come and be a regular guest chef.
Food Network did say that the shows featuring her sons Jamie and Bobby would not be affected.
