Paula Deen
has SETTLED the lawsuit that sent her empire crashing to the ground.

Lisa Jackson -- who worked as General Manager at Uncle Bubba's Seafood and Oyster House -- filed the suit, claiming racial and sexual harassment.  The racial claim was dismissed recently because Lisa didn't have a dog in the fight -- because she's white.

Now Jackson's lawsuit has been dismissed, and all signs point to a settlement.  The terms appear to be confidential.

"Highly Pigmented" members of our society need to understand that as long as they use THE word, their credibility ragarding IT being offensive is non-existent...if you don't like THE word, don't use it...regardless of your level of pigmentation

Get your news from a real news outlet people...Paula WON!

A do***ent filed in U.S. District Court in Savannah said both sides agreed to drop the lawsuit "without any award of costs or fees to any party."

Food network I bet you wish you hadn't acted so fast on dropping Paula now. I know you have lost viewers and hope you have lost money too. I haven't watched fn since you dropped Paula but it hasn't been so bad. You can only watch so much DDD and Dinner impossible over and over. I don't miss it.

Hey Paula, We're about the same age and both grew up in the south. Here's some advice......

the next time someone asks you if you have ever used the n word , you might consider "NO" instead of "yes, of course".

You kinda showed your hand there girl.

Paula made a bet this would never get out or it would not get any attention. Obviously, wrong. Paula lost the PR battle and won the legal war. Her career is over now, bad call on her part.

How do retards like her make so much money. Question answered, either young and foolish people, or the retarded American viewing public. No offense to actual people born with a mental condition and therefore has to work a million times harder to be able to do simple things (such as learn and communicate) that we take for granted.
