Upcoming Paula Deen cookbook canceled
Paula Deen's empire continues collapse around her as Random House has canceled its plans to publish her upcoming cookbook, "Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up," following revelations that Deen used racial slurs in her past. Though pre-orders boosted the book to No. 1 on Amazon, "after careful consideration," the publisher decided to pull the book, due out in October.
Sears, J.C. Penney, Walgreens, Wal-Mart, Target, Home Depot, Novo Nordisk, Smithfield Foods, Caesars Entertainment and The Food Network have all parted ways with the disgraced celebrity chef as well.
On the bright side, Deen might be going on more cruises this year.
