Default Tearful Paula Deen: I am not a racist

Oh boy, I don't even know what to say

----------------------

Article:

The TV cook and restaurateur tearfully opens up to TODAY’s Matt Lauer about the recent controversy surrounding a discrimination lawsuit filed by a former employee, saying the using the N-word is “just not a part” of who she is and that despite the fallout, she is glad she didn’t lie under oath.

That's what all racists say.

You know it's got to be pretty bad when Smithfield, one of the largest employers of illegal immigrants, drops you as a spokesperson.

So that's why their pork products are so damn delicious.

The use of a triple negative confirms that it's Paula Dean.

I used to watch her show, but it seemed like the longer she was on tv, the more southern and folksy her speech became to the point where I couldn't stand her

Spot on!!!

I could not stand how FAKE her southern draw and double-negatives became; she was "trying" to sound country, but ended up just sounding dumb.

Moral of the story - don't be an embarrassment if your ratings are down

Paula Deen's Other Problem: Stale Ratings

Paula Deen's future with the Food Network was in doubt even before a controversy over her use of racial slurs erupted, say people familiar with the situation, a reflection of changing tastes in food television.

For several weeks before the controversy blew up last week, Ms. Deen's agent had been negotiating with the Food Network to extend her contract, which ends June 30, the people said. One issue complicating the negotiations: her ratings had slid substantially over the past season.

"Things were not going as planned," said one person familiar with the negotiations, noting that an unresolved contract extension so late in the game was unusual....

Ratings for Ms. Deen's show "Paula's Best Dishes" were down 15% in total viewers—and 22% in the 18-49 demographic that advertisers care most about—for the 2012-13 season, compared with last season, according to Nielsen ratings provided by Horizon Media.

"Her numbers are down," said Brad Adgate, research director at Horizon Media. "She represented in many ways a bygone era."

Meanwhile, the Food Network has been increasingly shifting away from traditional cooking instruction toward food-themed reality shows and cooking competitions.
