The troubles may not be over for Paula Deen after she was dropped by the Food Network on Friday. The celebrity chef may no longer have a space to sell her pots and pans on the air either. QVC apparently has "concerns [over] the unfortunate Paula Deen situation," according to a spokesman for the network who spoke to TMZ. "We are closely monitoring these events and we are reviewing our business relationship with Ms. Deen. In the meantime, we have no immediate plans to have her appear on QVC."
After the scandal broke regarding Deen's use of racial slurs, she released two incredibly awkward apology videos in which she apologized for her "inappropriate, hurtful language." But they weren’t enough to save her job at the Food Network. Sources from the network tell TMZ that Deen was fired in large part because of the disastrous way her PR team handled the apology.
