Paula Deen Cuts Ties with Longtime Agent
Another one bites the dust. In the wake of her racial slur scandal, disgraced celebrity chef Paula Deen has split with her longtime agent, Barry Weiner.
Weiner, who has worked with Deen for over a decade, helped the comfort-food queen become a Food Network star and launch a media and merchandising empire, which has fallen apart since Deen admitted to using racial slurs.
Deen has already lost ties with The Food Network, Smithfield Foods, Target, Walmart, Sears/Kmart, while QVC is simply “taking a break.”
