    I've lost respect to the food network and will not buy your magazine or anything that is related to this network, you all must be the perfect bunch that makes the decisions there. Shame on you for doing that to Paula, I'm going to find her book and buy them all and support her all the way.

    Everywhere I turn today I hear the N word used. A few years ago I almost lost my job over calling myself the N word. I didn't call anyone else the N word I was referring to myself. My friends chastised me and told me I could lose my job, I had to fill a papers to put in my file concerning the incident so yes my heart goes out to Paula Deen, He that can stand there and say he hasn't said something or done something that he shouldn't have or he regrets let him cast the first stone as Miss Paula says. As for the companies dropping Paula Deen and her products,it is all about money. But be careful what goes around comes around. One day you might wish you had Paula Deen and her products in your stores.
