After news broke of her racially insensitive past, Paula Deen was unceremoniously dropped from both the Food Network and a number of her celebrity endorsement deals, including those from Walmart, Smithfield Foods and Caesers Entertainment. "I am so fortunate that so many of partners that know who I am have decided to stand by me," Deen told Matt Lauer on the "Today" show Wednesday morning about being axed by her sponsorships.
