Paula Deen has gone and done it now! According to TMZ, the Food Network has decided to NOT renew her contract, which expires at the end of this month.
Paula had come under fire for admitting to use the N-word in the past. The admission came out during a deposition in a civil lawsuit.
Paula issued the apology below – and then very quickly removed it. The apology was heavily edited it – and everyone pretty much thinks she came off insincere – and phony.
Sources connected with Deen tell TMZ … this was an apology produced by committee — a committee of lawyers, publicists and other managers who don’t understand the meaning of the word “apology.” They’ve strung a bunch of words together that make Deen look pathetic … throwing herself at the mercy of the court of public opinion.
Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane is in the hospital after suffering a blood clot in his brain!
The band announced the news via their website, forcing them to cancel three shows this week.
“Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment,” the band wrote. “The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.
Dwane’s emergency surgery means the band won’t play shows scheduled for Dallas tonight, the Woodlands, Texas, on Wednesday and New Orleans on Thursday. The band says make-up shows will be scheduled and announced as soon as possible. The tour is expected to resume Saturday at Bonnaroo in Tennessee. “We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour,” the band wrote.
