    It is a double standard when politicians can get away with going to prostitutes or take photos of their private parts and put them on the internet, be exonerated, forgiven and run again for office and yet Paula Deen, who was totally truthful about an incident that happened so long ago gets trashed from her sponsors? What the FoodNetwork did was unforgiving and downright mean. Paula was one of the better shows.

      You don't have the whole story. Read the transcript of her deposition – she has shown a repeated and continual pattern of questionable behavior. For example, she saw nothing wrong with her brother watching adult videos on the computer in view of the staff; when planning her brother's wedding in '07, she wanted to have young African-American men dress up as if they were 19th century slaves on a plantation.

      In this day and age when money is king, no network is going to risk keeping someone around who is mired in controversy.

    Foodnetwork I have lost respect for you. I no longer watch any of your shows. To bad, you did have a few good ones. I support Paula Dean for being truthful and having the courage to do so. We have all made mistakes in our lives,owning up to them is priceless,

  3. Judy says:

    They both look delicious. I love watching them both. Looking forward to new Stars and new Ideas on the Food Network. Thank you for doing the right thing. I have been a long time viewer and will continue to support you. Thanks Food Network.

    Bring back Paula!!!!

  5. Kathy M says:

    To all of you who are saying that Paula Deen got a bum wrap, please take the time to educate yourself on the whole story. This is not about her saying a certain word 20+ years ago. She has shown a repeated (and fairly recent) pattern of questionable behavior.

  6. Deb says:

    You people totally ignored the first comment from Kathy M., please go back and read it and let it sink in because it is a known fact.

    I can guarantee that if the media decided to look into every single person connected to Food Network (all the Chef's, producers, camera personnel, etc), someone has said or did something unkind or call someone a name. Yet, they have not been release of their contracts. If they had been, Food Network would not be on TV. There is not one person in this entire world that is perfect. You people in the Food Network big office, take a look at yourself in the mirror and ask the question. Have I been the perfect person towards anyone? I do not condone what Paula may have said 20 years ago, but I do respect her enough to make it right. We and you do not have the right to make judgement on her. Only God can do that to her.
