    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.


    Martha was always a little high falutin for me, but by golly, she knew her business. She has set a very high bar.

    Just read where Paula has fired her lawyers, and hired a DC powerhouse firm...to what end, I have no clue. They deal with employment termination so that could go to either side of the fence.

    Good for Paula. This is something she should have had from the beginning.

    As for Martha, I still have very much respect for her, and in saying that, I'll add another thought. If any of us believe that Martha was not contacted by Scripps on more than on occasion, we'd be fools. Scripps understood her motivations from the get-go. Alas, she never sold her soul to the devil. She was focused on her own empire, and rightly so. She has done well with it, and not even like Scripps, she has remained truthful to her followers. I love her very much to this day. She's an icon that couldn't be bent to have anything to do with FoodNetwork....rest assured.

    Paula, on the other hand was blind-sided by folks she trusted. Yea, I'm kinda sick of her "oh, where did I go wrong" attitude. A huge law firm will do her well. Thus, she may not end up in a bad way at all.

    Martha worked on Wall Street, and I'm sure Food wanted her. To have signed with them would have severely limited her and her options, which I'm sure she just laughed at. Paula, on the other hand, was a struggling single mom, and a break is a break. Both decisions make sense - some just work out better than others, but all come with a price.

    At the end of the day, Food needed Martha more than she needed them. Not so much with Paula.

    Thanks for the link, ZeldaZ. It is unlikely that would have seen this article otherwise. The article seems solidly objective. Being born and raised in the South, yet also being a moderate to extreme Liberal, I have seen similar scenarios played out many times. That being said, I can't help but think that Paula has been somewhat remiss in compensating those who have helped her along the way. Of course, I really don't think she should be demonized for the things she may have said or done in her past. Many people all over America have to some lesser or greater degree been equally guilty.

    It's great to see that Paula made a minimal effort to compensate Ms. Charles. Perhaps she should still do the same for others(?). I feel that her sponsors could see the fall-out coming from the mess this has created. Thus, it's somewhat understandable that many chose to distance themselves as the full story was revealed.

    I also feel that her TV apology was somewhat pathetic and appeared to be insincere.

    I've been all over the map regarding who did what, and did the punishment fit the crime.
