Another one of Paula Deen's biz partners jumped ship today ... but Harv thinks there's been a rush to judge the TV chef. So, we're tackling the real question here: Is Paula really racist or just totally ignorant?

Plus, "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier joins us to talk about his documentary film "How to Make Money Selling Drugs" -- a ballsy new take on the war on drugs.

And, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is on a ridiculous diet to beef up for his role as "Hercules" -- but can you really get that shredded on food and exercise alone?

"is Paula really racist or just totally ignorant?"


The two are not mutually exclusive ... and Paula Deen just happens to be both.

I don't think she is a racist, People forget, when she used the word she used it while relating her day to her husband, a day in which she had a gun held to her head by a black man while he was robbing the bank she worked at. She was not a celeb at that time.

I agree that the Paula Deen affair has been over-kill. Can we go after rappers instead who NOW speak disrespectfully of women.

Come on, try to rehabilitate her.

Racists don't finance black people's businesses, give money to black youth groups, invite black people to her home, or hire black people to work with her. This whole issue is totally blown out of proportion.

Paula Deen may be racist but that's her business. Show me one black person that isn't racist and I'll kiss your ass

Black people don't like the n-word because when they act like a n*gger...they get called on it!

Harvey.. If Paula Deen was using a Derogatory word against Jews that was used by Nazis you would NOT be defending Paula Deen.

My Gosh, Charles, is she not supposed to tell her family history? Are you holding her responsible for the actions of her great great great grandfather?

I think people are looking at a 30 year old quote through a week old lens. Very different times.

This is just a display of all the stupid things companies will do to try to make themselves look better. I think Smithfield, who does a LOT of things under the radar, and for THEM to call HER a racist -- wow, that's a good laugh, except I'm not laughing because of what they did to Paula. She's being burned at the stake for something most people I know did 30 years ago, just like she did.
