    Her cookbook has been canceled, and she has parted ways with her agent (it sounds like it was by her hand, but I don't know). She will not fully recover, at least on this type of level. Although I don't consider her 'old', she is 67, and not young. It will take a LOT to overcome everything that has been thrown at her, and honestly, if it was me, I don't know if I'd still have the heart for it.

    Perhaps she is dialing things down, hence not needing an agent any longer. Go back to her roots (and I don't mean that to be ugly or racist), work on her restaurants (and just keeping them close to home), take care of things in a more regional manner, and enjoying her family. I just know I wouldn't waste my time with with all these companies that dropped me like a hot potato.

    Agree or disagree, she was dealt a very bad hand. What remains to be seen is how this hand plays out.

    I have not been sorry to witness her takedown, frankly. Her appallingly nasty, greasy, over-buttered, ultra-sugary, deep-fried, gooey junk she promoted for years is a downright insult to serious, mindful cooks everywhere. With obesity rates what they are---especially here in the South---and diabetes on the rise everywhere, her "cuisine" amounted to gross negligence. She might as well have hosted shows demonstrating how to smoke unfiltered cigarettes and chug-a-lug pints of whiskey. Her faux-tearful interview with Matt Lauer made me embarrassed to be a fellow Southerner! Note to other Food.commers around the world: we are truly not all like that!


    WOW. You're not from the South, are you?

    Paula is not responsible for obesity, or folks ill-feeding their families. If I were to watch DD&D, doesn't mean I'm hitting those up for every meal. I watch Giada, but have no desire to eat Italian everyday. YOU are responsible for what you put in your body, not some TV host.

    I don't use Paula's recipes, I use my own family ones (which are probably on par). We do not eat like this everyday, far from it. Her show featured these to no end because that was her niche. She's been around over 11 years, and if you take a moment, you'll realize that the outlook on food has gone through a pretty significant change.

    You don't like her, or her show, and that is fine. What I find not so fine is bad-mouthing and name calling. It brings nothing to the table.

    I hadn't given much thought about this topic again until today. A neighbor passed on to me a "Paula" magazine. I really like the woman when she first came on the scene...earthy, Southern, straightforward to a fault. However, as time passed, the make-up became perfect. The teeth became perfect. The hair became perfect. And, there was almost a "personality" change as she became less "regional", more "national", and yes, even "international". I myself am Southern, and somehow, at some point, she became "disingenuous". She seemed to give up her soul, her roots...well, a bit too "big for her britches" as we'd say in the South. She sold off the "something" I wanted to believe in.

    I'm still not sure that her punishment has been truly fitting of the crime. I'm sure something was said in her "People" interview, but I don't buy into the crime of magazine commercialism either. Can anyone shed light on what she had to say? Her "Today" appearance was sad, pathetic, and self demeaning, as far as I can tell.

    Any thoughts, or has she just been "written off"?

    I agree with what you have to say, but this hasn't just happened to Paula. Many (but not all) have gotten too big for their britches (looking at Giada & Rachel here, but others also).

    I didn't watch her interview, but it sounds like she was given horrible crisis management information. Her apology apparently wasn't enough according to a lot of people. They didn't like her wording, blah, blah, blah...I don't know. To each their own. She's dropped out of sight as quickly as this whole thing was started. At 67, she doesn't have the years left to recover from this on the level she was. Perhaps reign it all in, and work on the regional fan base. She still has a lot of fans, and is still marketable.

    I have no insight as to what will happen, just thinking out loud here. Whatever she chooses, I just hope she goes about it with dignity and grace, and no bitterness.

    TV chefs become a caricature of themselves.

    Emeril was somewhat entertaining at first. When it was realized what people wanted, he would seemingly constantly scream "BAM!" and "LET'S KICK IT UP A NOTCH!"

    Couldn't stand him after his first season or so.

    I don't know, ala-kat. Look at Martha Stewart, and she even spent time in prison icon_exclaim.gif Martha is going about business today as if nothing ever happened.

    I agree with everything you say, PaulO. I lasted for 2 seasons with Emeril. After that, I couldn't even stand to look at his face or hear his name. WOW, and that George Bush-like "smirk" just drove me crazy. It was like he was waiting for applause after every word that fell from his mouth.

    As for Deen, we common Southerners, to my knowledge, have never eaten the way she "dressed" things up.

    All very true. But Martha had more going for her. There weren't as many celeb chefs/entertainers then - she was not a one trick pony. She was younger. Apparently had a much better crisis management team. Then there is the fact that, for the most part, people didn't find her crime all that offensive. In the end, she owned it, and would even mock herself.

    This is all just me thinking (my crystal ball broke the other day icon_biggrin.gif ) I could very well be wrong about her comeback. Things are strangely quiet now as I assume they are working out how to maneuver the choppy waters ahead.

    I cannot disagree with you, ala-kat. Martha was, and still is, a very diverse and savvy woman. Deen just doesn't have that kind of "smarts", and I'm sure that has led to a lot of her problems.

    We can rest assured that she won't go hungry, no matter what.
