Are you really going to play the obtuse white dude card? What next? "If I tried to start White History Month they'd call me a racist!!"

I know a few old-timers who are the same way and they aren't southern. I think they can get a pass, but at the same time that's when you realize that it's time to put them out to pasture.

I said pretty much the same thing about waiting for that mindset to die out. All she does is offer unhealthy recipes and use a (sometimes forced imo) heavy Southern accent when critiquing someone else's food, so her racial attitudes have never affected her job. It's silly to see so many get up in arms against her and be happy about her contractnot getting renewed when Food Network hasn't used her for more than a handful of gigs in the past few years.

By capitulating to the sensitives, FN may have just resurrected ger TV personality.

FEL is all about the white history month and the power that comes along with it.

The woman can serve up some incredible home-made fried chicken.
That should count for something. :P

Batali? He stiffed the workers at his restaurants and got away with it, aside from having to pay them back after a civil suit. But nothing happened to his TV appearances.

Interesting. I'm waiting for the lawsuit against Obama, who consistently paid his female staff much less than his male staff in his Senate office, and in the White House....

Her pumpkin gingerbread trifle is amazing. I've never made it, but it looks like it would be easy/convenient. When I had it this past year, I had to turn my brain off on how many calories I was consuming with each bite.

Oh, I agree. Her lawyer must be an idiot or is actively trying to stir the pot to drum up support for her. (And of course, everyone I ran into this weekend was defensive of Paula Deen. :lol: )
