Her career is finished, I hope she has enough money to keep up her lifestyle.

It wasn't blacks who complained.

And let's not forget Wendy Williams, who went on a televised rant about Paula Deen.  Gotta keep Wendy's big mouth shut and happy.  From everything that I've read, (and I've read a lot) Paula was "caught" using the n-word years ago by someone on her staff.  She admitted that she used the word in the past and apologized for it.  I would like you to find one white person from her generation who was raised in the South, especially Georgia, who hasn't at one time or another used some racial slur or even more specifically the n-word.  While we have come to realize that this word is not acceptable, I still hear other slurs being bandied about such as Degoes, Wops, Hunkies, Polocks, Spics, etc and while some people of these backgrounds are offended, you never hear these slurs being referred to as the d-word, the w-word, the h-word, the p-word, or the s-word, respectively.  The words are used and people just get over it.

 i didn't hear the comment,just got a gist from the comments here.i feel if it wasn't on her show then it's none of their business.ramsey is crazy.lol.

Quoting Mommy2b2many:

I honestly think people are going way crazy for something that's not a big deal. She apologized; and has never said anything racist on her show right? It's sad that one stupid comment at her restraunt ruined her career. Yet Ramsey is a complete douche ALL the time to people and he's famous for it

I'm more worried for the food network, they're getting some heat and loosing viewers left and right...

Very true... But what did she say?


Quoting Anonymous:

Maybe I missed something... but every one is freaking out because she made a racist joke/comment; OFF air right? I mean aren't we going a little overboard here? And she apologized. Other tv personalities have said much worse... on air

She deserves it by treating those people the way she did. She reinforces a bad stereotype of us southerners by calling people the "n" word and planning a "plantation style" wedding.
