I want to send love and thanks for the kind words you have all shared with me and my family, and the support you've shown me this past week.—

Smithfield Foods today joined Food Network in severing ties with chef Paula Deen, and QVC said in a statement that the network has no immediate plans for Deen to appear. There’s always Twitter, though, and this evening Deen tweeted her appreciation to supporters. While not condoning her words, actor Kevin Sorbo today pointed out what had many scratching their heads a few months back. Remember when Matt Drudge was accused of being racist for pointing out Quentin Tarantino’s use of the N-word in “Django Unchained”?
And this is why I love the hypocrisy of America…..Oh, and thank God none of us have EVER been racist. Only this woman. Bad woman. Bad.
