If you were at the Food Network, would you have fired Paula Deen or given her a second chance?


Do you think the Food Network's handling of the Paula Deen situation was appropriate or too reactionary?

    Great points teaches12345. I don't know how Food Network will handle her sons' shows. But I think in their case you can't fault them for their mother's indiscretions. Thanks for answering!

    I only watched because my late grandmother was a huge fan of the Food Network. But my mom, aunts, cousins and I all agreed she only used a lot of butter and it didn't look that good.

    She has other endeavors but Food Network's money is unmatched.

    I agree. If they had done nothing, it would've appeared supportive. Just like when Marv Albert had his scandal and was quickly fired. While he was facing criminal charges it was no less stupid what he did.

    Thanks for answering Denise!

    I saw that link you just posted. It's hard to justify her reasoning behind any of that.

    And it further proves that people who don't know the power of words this day in age are among the most uninformed.

    Thanks for answering!

    Hi Mary,

    I think her hiding her diabetes was just as bad if not worse than this incident. Thanks for responding!

    Good points, IDONO. It may be to protect sponsorship or they really feel that they can't do anything with her. Who knows? Let's hope this serves as an example that it's not going to be as easy to get away with murder. Thank you for commenting!

    Hi Arc4life,

    I see your perspective. Food Network had to do what they thought was right.

    Maybe Paula will come back in different capacity but I think a lot hinges on tomorrow's Today Show interview and how she does. Thanks for answering!
