After waiting around to see which way the wind blew ... QVC -- like a lemming -- followed the rest of Paula Deen's partners and dropped the chef in the wake of the n-word scandal.

Initially, QVC refused to take a stand -- saying they were closely monitoring the situation.

Now, after just about every company connected to Deen jumped ship ... QVC has sheepishly made its move ... announcing Paula will not appear on any upcoming broadcasts ... for now.

In fact, the head of QVC released a statement saying, "Some of you may wonder whether this is a 'forever' decision – whether we are simply ending our association with Paula. We don’t think that’s how relationships work. People deserve second chances. And we always strive to do the right thing."   One question:  Huh?

For her part, Paula released her own statement regarding the QVC split, saying, "As you know, I have some important things to work on right now, both personally and professionally. And so we’ve agreed that it’s best for me to step back from QVC and focus on setting things right."

Who's next?

It's not right that they are ruining a persons career over something this stupid. In the headlines today re. the Trayvon Martin murder trial the media prominently used the racist term referring to a white person "Cracker" in bold letters in their headline but made sure to use "n****" in reference to a black. Why is it ok to use a slang racist word to refer to a white person but use the 'n' word and the media persecutes a person and destroys their career. NOT RIGHT!

REALLLYYYYYY...I think this is getting ridiculous.... These people act like there soooo perfect. This happened soooo many years ago and now you want to make a big deal out of this. And it's one mistake my goshhhh u want to crucify this woman for a mistake. She said she was sorry. Whoever never made a mistake cast that stone. I forgive her and I will buy her books and I will watch her on TV n if she's not on TV then UTUBE. I will be supporting Paula Deen.

Settling out of court would have bought her SOME time. But, It didn't really work out for Michael Jackson...he paid hush $$ and settled big!
$100's of millions! Years later he got sued again,
over the same S--T, by someone ELSE who needed some $$. It would have saved her only temporarily; the tabloids will smell the chum in the water and go on a feeding frenzy...TMZ always finds out! ;)
Michael is still getting sued, and he's DEAD!!!

Maybe the FoodNetwork will replace her with some black thug rapper, who rhymes his recipes. And he'll say the "N-word" too, but it's OK if HE does it.

Aw! I feel about as sorry for Paula now as I did when she lamented about her great grandfather's loss over his 30 "workers" (as she put it), aka slaves and couldn't cope with having to do the work for himself. Now she will have more time to fantasize over nostalgic parties with all black waiters.
