    They need to 'man up' and state that they declared her guilty before anything was presented. That is against the American ideal. Instead, they pandered to a liberal agenda where it is better to cover their backsides than stand up for something.

    I never cared for Paula's recipes (too fat and sugar laden) – but, I will defend to my dying days the idea of 'innocent until proven guilty'.

    Shame on them!

      It was much more than her use of the N-word or the backlashed that follow. She was losing following because people were started to see her as fake. This is the woman who pushed the fat and sugar laden dishes that everybody loved. She would say I am your chef not your doctor. Now, this same woman is telling me everything in moderation and to eat healthy. She publicly admits to having diabetes once it is profitable for her (promoting a diabetic medicine). And then the law suit happened. The executives at FN just realized that she was not marketable as the funny grandma the public grew to love. They did not have to wait for the court of law to decide. The court of public perception had already decided. They had to cut their loses. It was purely a business decision. This is from a die hard fan of Paula Deen. It broke my heart to see her go, but I totally understand why.

    I have been so disappointed with your new program format. The main reason why people like me loved watching your show was the great chefs COOKING!! all the different styles, cuisines and personalities that give us amateur chefs the idea that we could do it, just like them!, now all you have is a bunch of what seems like game/contest shows.
    Please bring back the great chefs doing what they do best COOKING! we don't need a bunch game shows or mystery dinners!!
