Paula Deen — Food Network Gives Her the Ax

Exclusive 0620-paula-deen-tmzPaula Deen“s goose has been cooked at the Food Network.  Officials tell our sources they are not renewing her contract, which expires at the end of this month.

Paula apparently was done in for her comments during a deposition in a civil lawsuit, in which she freely admitted to using the N-word in the past.

Deen issued an apology this morning that bordered on ridiculous — it was heavily edited and frankly insincere.

She issued a second apology shortly before the Food Network said it would not renew her contract.
