    Well there is a difference. What if her shows weren't bringing in what the network wanted and this was just the icing on the cake. Realistically speaking she could have lost her job either way.

    Actually, my Husband said that very thing - that her style of cooking was on the way out, and with her antics, they'd been looking for a reason to get rid of her for years, and this was the perfect opportunity.

    I mean i don't doubt that it was a factor, but i don't think that something that she said that long ago was the ONLY reason.

    There is so much more to this lawsuit than the fact that she used the N word. So much more.

    Walgreen's and Sears have severed ties with Paula Deen...just announced on the news.

    Her personal empire has crumbled. It must be very difficult for her . . . especially as she thinks back that she probably could have settled that lawsuit without going to court.

    Almost every life has a "do-over moment." I'm sure this is hers.

    Golly, how would the world react if a Kardashian said the same thing? I bet differently.

    I think the only ones that haven't severed ties with her are her cruise and a few local companies that she endorsed. Just about all of her major endorsements are gone.

    True. IMO, I think the fact that she is currently running a restaurant where sexually and racially inappropriate behavior is not only condoned, but encouraged by the owners, may have something to do with her contract not being renewed.
