NEW YORK (AP) -- Paula Deen has lost another job. Smithfield Foods is dropping her as a spokeswoman. Smithfield says it “condemns the use of offensive and discriminatory language and behavior of any kind.” QVC and Sears could be next. QVC says it’s reviewing their deal to sell Deen’s cookbooks and cookware. Sears is doing the same thing. A few days ago, the Food Network said it wouldn’t renew her contract after she admitted using racial slurs in the past. QVC says it “shares the concerns being raised around the unfortunate Paula Deen situation.” They say they have “no immediate plans” to have her on the network. Deen has rescheduled her interview with the “Today” show for tomorrow after pulling out at the last minute last week.
