Skip to comments.Paula Deen Under Fire: How Many Millions Is the N-Word Scandal Going to Cost Her?
Posted on 06/25/2013 5:56:25 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Just how much of a hole did Paula Deen dig for herself?
With the Food Network's announcement that it would not be renewing its contract with the Paula's Home Cooking star, along with QVC distancing itself from the celebrity chef and Smithfield Foods cutting ties with her altogether after she admitted to past use of the N-word and other hurtful remarks, it would seem that Deen's culinary empire is currently up in flames.
But her bank account isn't under as much fire as one might think. Sure, her ranking as Forbes' No. 4 highest-earning celeb chef is definitely at risk...but all is not lost just yet.
"I would estimate the loss of Food Network and Smithfield to be pretty huge," Forbes staff writer Caleb Melby, who estimates that Deen has taken a post-scandal hit of $3 million to $4.5 million, tells E! News

"....and everybody hates the Jews."
I don’t think it was just used there, my mother was from Missouri and she used the word to designate people that were what we would now call losers, low life, worthless. To my mother it was not a racial word either- she called whites that if they were really not good people. In the 50s, 60s time frame I heard many use the word that way even in Arizona, blacks at that time called worthless people that name as did whites. I could see my mother use that word in a deposition at that time, it was commonly used.
I met her husband and brother on a cruise, they came in the cigar club. A couple of us offered our cigar cutters, but they had to have the attendant cut theirs with a plastic V cutter, that they said was better. The rest of us laughed at their snobbery after they left, they just wanted the attendant to cut and hold the lighter for them. They didn’t know how to correctly light a cigar and held them so we couldn’t miss the seeing the label. They ripped their followers off, we met three women, who paid twice what we paid for our suite and they had an inside cabin with a bunk bed. They did get a special BBO on the pool deck, which was closed off for the rest of us.
The only times, I saw Paula was in the casino, with her two black bodyguards and she appears to be a big gambler.
It was more complicated in New Mexico than whether to call Latinos Mexicans or Spanish- Spanish was used to designate the descendants of the Spaniards and they would make it plain they were not Mexicans; Mexicans were from Mexico. That was like a mine field, I remember when I was a kid a Spaniard friend of my dad’s yelling and cursing because his daughter was marrying a Mexican as if it was a fate worse than death. It is still that way in some of the elders, but mostly not so serious as they took it back then.
Proof that liberals can’t be held to a standard the must be able to flip flop to fit their agenda.
This is the only surface of the story.
Her contract was up for renewal, was this a negotiating hardball. (you won’t resign on our terms then we will destroy you signing with anyone)
She is a defendant in a race based discrimination suit. Is this lawyers just trying to push her to settlement by smear?
like making her bankrupt will really help but then again the lawyer does not care, the acurser may be too stupid to get it.
I don’t even like her and her far left wackyness. She is just an old school democrat who only care about herself. That disclaimer said, the real story is far simpler and yet to be told. follow the money.
H P Lovecrafts story THE RATS IN THE WALLS has a cat named Niggerman"
I can't believe you mentioned that; I just finished reading that story. I found a hardcover compilation of twenty Lovecraft stories at Barnes and Noble for $7.95.
I was surprised the cat's name wasn't edited out somehow.
***the niggers are the West Indians. These people are wogs.***
Oh darn! I forgot about the Wogs and the Fuzzy Wuzzies.
Also the Fish heads, and Square heads.
What many don’t realize is the foreigners also have certain non-complimentary names for whites.
I think this is about obesity, but mostly because liberals are all hate, all the time. Paula is white, Southern, Christian...and fat. Just too much for a liberal to resist hating. Donating to Obama wasn't enough to get over all that. When the Skokie is 66, I hope I'm around to call her fat. Weight us harder to control with every passing year.
Wookie. Not Skokie.
Except, of course, during National Brotherhood Week.
Thank you, I was afraid nobody would get the reference.
I'm sure a Catalan would be just as upset.
Never met the lady, never cared for her television show, and never found a recipe of hers that worked for me.
I hear she is on The Today Show Wednesday. Should be an interesting interview.....
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if PD had someone research a list of 1,000 pop-culture references (in the last FIVE years) that use the word ‘nigger’ and then put that list on her web page?
Now that she has been mugged we can expect her to return to her roots and become a political and social conservative. She has seen the error of appeasing progs. They are no one’s friend, not even their own.
