Paula Deen's upcoming cookbook, currently the No. 1 seller on Amazon.com, has been dropped by its publisher.
In a brief statement Friday, Ballantine Books announced it had canceled publication of "Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up." The book was scheduled for October.

I hope she got a really big advance -— now she can publish it herself. She may be an egg sucking yellow dog Democrat but this has gone too far.
Paula placed a call yesterday to the Revhhhruuuunddd Jaaaahckksuuuhn. Asked for his help. I am sure he will oblige, and this book will move forward.
Just as soon as the ink is dry on the contract giving him 50% of all her future royalties.
I sure hope so
In other aging celeb chick news....Martha Stewart went on some chat show and revealed that she sexts, and has participated in a three-way.
Can I have an EEEEEWWWWWWW, people??
This is getting more stupid by the day.
The woman who initially sued over old old accusations has destroyed this Deen and her family, I hope the accuser feels regret till the day she dies.
I bet this costs the publisher millions and a suit on top of that.
That publisher is about to discover there are a whole lot of creepy ass crackers who are tired of the double standard and will buy a (presumably decent) cookbook in protest over the ongoing double standard. I’d actually never heard of this woman until her “scandal”, but I’d buy her book if I was in the market for a cookbook.
“There is something WAY more going on here than a 60-something year old woman saying the n-word decades ago.”
Don’t count on it; they are crushing dissent, and making an example of her to instill fear in others. OJ Simpson (a murderer subsequently found guilty of wrongful death) was acquitted for the same nonsense.
This book was written after she lost all that weight, the description looks great....taste but lower fat, sodium, calorie receipts.
“Martha Stewart went on some chat show and revealed that she sexts, and has participated in a three-way.”
She paid less of a price after her crimes (for which she went to prison); imagine that.
Self-publish, and just forget about the old method of publishers. By 2025, I don’t think there will be a single major publisher left in the US.
I can generate a book every six months....self publish, and if I can generate talk about my book....sell 250 copies a month easily. I don’t need the dimwits or their hyped-up service.
Fight back Paula. Don’t let them destroy you.
She must’ve done something REALLY bad. I mean, you can sit by and watch people get murdered, and that is OK. But there has to be more to this than saying the n-word. I admit I said the n-word back when I was a young child. It was said frequently by whites and blacks where I was from. The minute someone told me to stop saying it, I did.
I’m not nor have I ever been a Paula fan. I have watched one or two of her shows, and that was under duress. hah. I think she made tuna salad on a piece of fancy lettuce that’s name starts with “butter.” lol I was impressed with the pretty way she presented her tunafish. Shoot. It might have been chicken salad. I just don’t remember. Hubby might. He’s not a fan either. We have fun trying to speak Paula’s brand of Georgia Southern drawl mixed with heavy smoker croak. But really. The woman must’ve said something about Muslims, and they are afraid she might set off a war of Muslims versus butter.
If a “word” uttered by Deen (years ago) brought down all these consequences, wonder what they would have done if they asked Senator Robert Byrd the same question about using the “word”? Don’t imagine there’d be many consequences, Dems would just say “that was years ago.”
They castigate her when they should oust The Won? Don’t get me started. She needs to quit apologizing and get on with her life.
Here’s a Ballantine Books email address, for those inclined to comment...

Why does the left seek to destroy people?
There is an organized attempt to destroy Paula Deen. Her crime is that she said the N word in some context at one time. So the left needs to destroy her.
A Miss USA contestant had the audacity to say that she believes marriage is a man and a woman. For that, homosexual pageant judge Perez Hilton orchestrated a campaign of character assassination against her.
The owner of Chick Fill A says he thinks marriage is a man and a woman. Liberals started to boycott the company, and liberal politicos such as Rahm Emmanuel said that the business is not welcome in their communities. The fact that Chick Fill A has never been sued over anti homosexual discrimination, and does not discri,inate in that manner, is of no consequence to the left.
The Boy Scouts have been under relentless pressure for years over anti homosexual membership and leadership standards. The left pressured corporate donors to not contribute to that organization.. When the Scouts finally capitulated, and indicated that boys with homosexual inclinations would be allowed, the left was still pissed off anyway. reason being, the Scouts still don’t allow open homosexual leaders.
How is it that the left is so intolerant, so unable to live and let live? The left can’t just have disagreements with people and institutions. Instead, they seek to destroy all who don’t agree with their agendas.
It’s a sad state of affairs that the left has created such upheaval. Freedom of speech and association do not exist in reality as we might think it does.
She should self publish it and she’ll probably make more than going through the stupid publisher.
Hope Paula goes for Crowd Funding the publishing costs.... Let the little people have a little action.
All the retailers that dropped her, have they all stopped selling the rap music with the n-word absolutely littered through all the songs?
