The news just keeps getting worse for PAULA DEEN. Yesterday, Target, Novo Nordisk, Home Depot and Wal-Mart announced they were dumping her. Novo is the company Paula signed a deal with last year to hype their diabetes drug.
They said, quote, "Novo Nordisk and Paula Deen have mutually agreed to suspend our patient education activities for now, while she takes time to focus her attention where it is needed."
And Target said, quote, "We have made a decision to phase out the Paula Deen merchandise in our stores as well as on Target.com. Once the merchandise is sold out, we will not be replenishing inventory."
Home Depot and Wal-Mart basically said the same thing.
And QVC said it's not working with Paula in the near future, but refused to call this a, quote, "forever decision." They said, quote, "People deserve second chances. And we always strive to do the right thing."
But Paula's fans continue to stick up for her. In fact, thanks to them, her upcoming book "Paula Deen's New Testament: 250 Favorite Recipes, All Lightened Up", has shot to #1 on Amazon.com.
