    I just read that her publisher cancelled her book deals, including this one.

    That is a surprise considering its #1 on amazon pre-order from what I have been reading. You would think they want to make some money, then again, maybe they are afraid of backlash.

    No money was exchanged so that won't be an issue. I am sure a lot of the orders came from her supporters and then some are just regular orders pre-controversy.

    So I wonder if she'd have to give back her big book advance, considering the book won't be earning any royalties now.

    As if this wasn't bad enough, this is turning into one ugly kettle of fish.

    Probably not because she did write it. They are the ones that cancelled the deal, not her. She will find another publisher in a heartbeat. There are smaller houses that will jump at the chance.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    I have no desire to argue the points about Paula Deen because I'm not a fan nor does it make any difference in my life. But I really have a problem w/how distorted the story has been. Yes, 30 years ago, she used a bad word.......who among us can say we've always been perfect?
    Also, I really didn't see the supposed issue about the bathrooms while I read the depo. Nor did I see anything racist in the entire depo.
    I can say that the woman is not very bright, not very educated and cannot speak well. All this has probably made her look worse than she is and I feel sorry for her.
    But people are going to believe whatever they want to believe.
    I noticed today that Anderson Cooper tweeted wondering why Alec Baldwin can get away with calling a reporter a "flaming queen" and no one says anything. How is that any different?
