Despite her teary mea culpa on NBC's "Today" show, two additional companies decided to part ways with Paula Deen Wednesday afternoon. Caesars announced its decision to strip Deen's name from four of its buffet restaurants, while Wal-Mart Stores Inc. disclosed shortly after its plans to sever ties with the culinary figure. The world's largest retailer said it will not be placing "any new orders beyond what's already committed." The Bentonville, Ark.-based company has carried a range of products under the Paula Deen moniker since 2011. Smithfield Foods dropped Deen on Monday, while the Food Network announced Friday that it was not renewing Deen's contract after she had skipped her initial "Today' show appearance that morning and released a series of apology videos via YouTube that afternoon.

The celebrity chef dissolved into tears during Wednesday's interview with Matt Lauer as she attempted to explain how she wasn’t a racist- although a deposition filed and leaked last week revealed her use of racial slurs in the past. It was an odd disparity between the Paula Deen known for her cheery, comforting disposition, and the Paula Deen who appeared on the "Today" show, defeated, exhausted and "heartbroken." Deen, who began her interview with Lauer by telling him that the last week has left her simply,“overwhelmed," added, "There’s been some very very hurtful lies said about me.” The embattled celebrity chef continued, "I believe that every creature on this earth was created equal."

Nutmeg.
Poor Paula, who even knew she had so many irons in the fire?
She should take her truck load of money and retire. Maybe spend some time with the grandkids. Who needs the grief?

Paula Deen is closer to the very Plantation People with High Melanin Levels who are indignant over her personal feelings, than she is to we little people.

I might have had some respect for her had she not put so much effort into suching up and kissing azzes of the Plantation Massa's in the Employ of the Professional Race Baiter Industries of Amerika.

Home Depot, the Diabetes Foundation, and some stupid casino have also jumped on the sanctimonious band wagon. What a bunch of sheep most of this country has turned into.

If the mainstream media would portray the true racism of the Lefists in the same vitriolic manner they do the ancient incidents of anyone else, this would be a legitimate topic for discussion.

However, they never have and ever will.
