Paula Deen

Fries Relationship with Agent

7/5/2013 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

0705_paula_deen_tmz2Paula Deen is finally on the other end of a severed business relationship ... she's cutting ties with her agent following the recent fallout from her admission to using the N-word.

Deen's rep, Elana Weiss, said in a statement that Deen "has separated from" New York agent Barry Weiner.

Weiss went on to say that Deen and her family "thank him for the tireless effort and dedication over the many years."

Since the leak of a deposition in which Deen admitted to using the N-word in the past, she has lost deals with the likes of The Food Network, Wal-Mart, Target, JCPenney, Kmart, Sears and her book publisher.

I am shocked no one seems to realize she can't possibly be ignorant because she come from a family that was well off enough to have black maids and housekeepers. She beat the maids daughter with a bobo bat and said it made her feel good. After the child's mother hit her for it her parents had the woman "arrested" "hung" tossed in the swamp, hell we wouldn't know because this woman nor her child has surfaced to comment. Back to my main point, if they had that type of money Paula went to school. She has an education so that extra southern slang is her play on who she is on television that N word lives in her. You speak to your own kind honest words, that is why a WHITE women was able to hear all her sick fantasies.
