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?

GoodNews!    

The sponsors read the court do***ents. They know that the allegations against Paul, Bubba and others are very serious. Using the N-word present or past are the least of Paula's worries.

To those that keep trying to defend the use of the N word and compare it to words like cracker.

When was the last time you saw a picture of a cracker being lynched and hanging from a tree surrounded by a crowd of smiling faces as if they were having a family barbecue?

PD has enough FU money to start her own shopping channel if she wanted to. And judging by her book going to #1 on Amazon I think she would do pretty well. I've never watched her show because everything she cooks is unhealthy but she does have a lot of fans.

SHE VOTED FOR OBAMA! The stupid democrats are learning that the minorities and liberals don't care about them, they are using them for their socialist agenda. Deen was tossed under the bus just like all the rest of us are going to be if we don't wake up.
.
I don't feel sorry for Deen at all. Lie down with dogs, you will get fleas.

I am a Blue Jean Chef fan. I buy her products on QVC. However , I think QVC and the rest of the bunch are cowards.

QVC's delicate sensabilities aren't too offended, at least when it comes to the bottom line ... $$$$'s ... they haven't taken down their inventory (how many thousands?) of the 130 Paula Deen items for sale on their website.

Go away Paula Dean! Can't say I've ever seen someone cry hysterically with no tears. You are as phony as a $3 bill. Finally people see you for who you really are and it is not pretty.

It's about time we put this away. We have all said it at one time or another and if you watch the the George Zimmerman trial you would know that white people are called Crackers and the star witness for the prosecution said that that's not a racist remark. So maybe someone could explain that for me.

I don't understand why this person was so insulted and humiliated with Paula's behavior that she stayed in her employ FIVE years - took five paychecks, raises, etc.
Paula admitted it and that it was 30 years ago. Lets's all look back and see what we did 30 years ago.

RE: Comment #10 --- THIS is in great/most part of what it's all about. It's not just about the use of ONE word nearly 30 years ago as Paula has spun it to be. It's about a collective amount of behaviors that are unacceptable. Wish everyone who is so on her side and thinks it's only about the "N" word would read the doggone transcripts of Jackson vs. Deen. See what Paula testified to there and then match that with her "ONE TIME" use of the word under duress of a robbery. BS called and all these sponsors and The Food Network know it. She's even lied about the lie! The interview with Matt Lauer was such a farce on her part. What I want to see is an interview with Lisa Jackson and several other long time employees of the restaurants!
