Paula Deen‘s been in some hot water lately, with some racist remarks being revealed during a recent deposition. Her contract with the Food Network has not been renewed and TMZ is reporting it’s because of how badly her management team handled the apology.
Deen pulled out of her “Today” interview, then filmed two different apology videos, the first of which actually kind of made things worse. Sources close to the Food Network say it had no choice but to fire her.
Her son, Bobby Deen, however, will not be affected by the recent events involving his mother. His show, “Not My Mama’s Meals,” will run as planned. TMZ jokes that maybe they should change the name, but we think it actually kind of works.
There is no word yet from FOX as to whether Paula’s episode of “Masterchef” will also run as planned.
