13 Paula Deen Partnerships That Are No More

Paula Deen’s recent racism-allegation and associated discrimination court case against her and her brother have led to a huge P.R. crisis for the celebrity chef. Almost all of her big partnerships are terminating their agreements with Paula; Macy’s and Kohl’s are among the very few that are still waiting to make a decision and are continually monitoring “the situation.” On the flip side, her cruise-company partnership has added an extra date due to increased demand from fans trying to support her. She’s been invited onto The View on Monday; it is yet to be announced if she will come on the show or not. It will be interesting to see her sit down with a group of people, some of whom aren’t white.
