    Florimel, I completely agree with you. I think people should take responsibility for what they put in their mouths. It's not a TV chef's job to teach healthy eating.
    But it's up to the Food Network to approve or disapprove of what recipes are shown on their programs but I don't hear anyone complaining that they were in accord with Paula's recipes and therefore, saying it was ok to provide recipes that had lots of butter and fat.

    Walmart makes sense to me. They carry her full line of cookware and food (?). I guess she sells frozen meals maybe? It is a financial decision. They fear the sales will drop and they may. Logical business move. And they don't want anything to do with scandal, of course.

    Good dialogue here on the topic here. I see a good sensitivity level from posters. Of course advertisers do not want to be associated with someone who uses racial slurs.
    You can do it!

    That's not always true. Samsung just signed a huge deal with Jay Z.

    From NBC News with Brian Williams Facebook page: Target: ‘We have made a decision to phase out the Paula Deen merchandise in our stores as well as online.


    Sorry, no link to any verification provided, but at this point, it all seems plausible.

    I think so as well. This doesn't seem to pass the smell test.

    It seems she's also been dropped by the pharmaceutical company that makes the diabetes drug she takes and by Home Depot (didn't know she had anything to do with them). QVC and Sears are said to be contemplating their next move.

    Not sure how far back it is, but I posted a similar thought as well. When I read that there was only ONE employee named in the lawsuit, I knew we hadn't heard the WHOLE story.
