Paula Deen Fired from the Food Network

Despite her efforts to save face — with not one but two apology videos — that deposition stemming from a lawsuit which revealed her casual use of the n-word (as well as other seemingly racist actions) has cost Paula Deen her job at the Food Network.

“Food Network will not renew Paula Deen’s contract when it expires at the end of this month,” a network spokesperson confirmed today (June 21).

Obviously all her attempts to fix the mess weren’t enough for the channel, which continued to promote the cooking host, even hiring her son Bobby Deen to make healthier versions of her recipes on ‘Not My Mama’s Meals,’ after Deen was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2012.

Also not accepting her apologies? The person who is suing Deen and her brother for sexual harassment and derogatory comments. In response to the video messages, Lisa Jackson (through her lawyer) told E! News, “Forgiveness requires penance.”

Earlier today, Paula pulled a hat trick of apologies by taping this one, aimed directly at Matt Lauer to apologize for bailing on a ‘Today Show’ appearance this morning.
