    Thing is, Food Network didn't fire her.

    Not renewing a contract that expires at month end is effectively what?

    note the allegation here
    Note the dishonesty in quoting part of a sentence from my post, leaving off the point where I clearly labeled what I said as "opinion", not "allegation". You seem to do this a lot.

    Here is the entire post I made, in context:

    Quote Originally Posted by DiAnna View Post

    Personally, I think that the narcissistic bubble she created for herself where she believed herself so beloved that she could utter racial slurs, sexually harass and generally market herself as a grandmotherly sexpot looking for a stud to cougar has finally burst. A dose of humility was in order, and she just got hers.
    Asking other posters to explain an "allegation" by another poster is disingenuous at best, but when you also take what was clearly labeled as my personal opinion and distort it by deliberate edit so that you can present it as an allegation, that is dishonest presentation. Please don't do this with my posts again.

    You're splitting hairs a bit. If the contract expired in a year rather than a week, you might have a point...

    Technically, she wasn't fired. Not renewing a contract is a little different than firing someone outright. Like someone else mentioned, that's the beauty of having a contract. You can decide at any time not to renew it.

    What do you think they would have done if the contract had expired at the end of June 2014 instead of 2013? They would have used the morality clause (which any decent contract incorporates) to fire her. Fortunately for them, that decision wasn't necessary or really needed, but make no mistake, she was essentially fired...

    Well if SHE broke the contract that she agreed to and signed, then that is the company's prerogative to fire her.
