5:10 PM PT -- Paula has just released a statement, thanking the Food Network for 11 "great years." She said, "Because of the gift the Food Network gave me, I've had the pleasure of being allowed into so many homes across the country."

Paula Deen
's goose has been cooked at the Food Network.  Officials tell TMZ they are not renewing her contract, which expires at the end of this month.

Paula apparently was done in for her comments during a deposition in a civil lawsuit, in which she freely admitted to using the N-word in the past.

Deen issued an apology this morning that bordered on ridiculous -- it was heavily edited and frankly insincere.

She issued a second apology shortly before the Food Network said it would not renew her contract.

Democrats founded the KKK. Republicans, of which MLK and rosa parks were members, freed the slaves. Easily searchable facts. Thank a liberal for poor race relations.

I don't approve of the n word. It hurts peoples feelings. That's the bottom line.

But if what she says about just saying it in reference to someone who held a gun to her head..is true...I think we can all agree that just about any insult you can think of is appropriate...in that case. Without regard to race color creed ethnicity or parents marital status... :-)

They should have kept her...what would the blacks have done?? Riot and burn down their own neighborhoods?? Good riddance. So sick of hearing them cry and piss and moan about what the "white man" did to them. They gotta try and attack a 70 year old white woman for comments made years ago, but they don't have a problem using the word on their own people....pretty damn sad. Am I racist??? YEAH just as racist as YOU are.

i dont use the word, but i have yet to meet anyone black, white, mexican, middle eastern and asian who doesnt use races terms about another race. they all have people they dont like, or respect. it is a two way street, you cant say remarks (even joking) about other people and thank they shouldnt say them about you. its not alright for one group to shout racism, when they are themselves. it isnt just in america, its been that way since the begining of time, not just black and white. wrong, but its the truth.

If Paula Dean is so racist, why was a black woman her manager in the first place? I think we need more information here? If offensive things were done or said AND the plaintiff expressed her discomfort, that's one thing. Or did she play along in order to trap this rich and famous family?
