Fallout continues for Paula Deen

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Sexual and racial harassment continues to boil over celebrity chef Paula Deen.

She's already been dropped by a number of big corporations and lost endorsement deals but, with the right team,

media specialists says all of this could go away. In a deposition 149 pages long Deen details the work environment

and even admits to using the "N" word in the past. "I think it's ridiculous the way that people have responded to her

it's sad" said Rachael a Houston resident another says,

"Martha Stewart came back everybody comes back." Houstonians are still reacting after Deen admitted in the lawsuit that

she has used racial slurs including the "N" word. But taking a closer look at the deposition tells more of why the

complainant, a manager at Deen's restaurant, alleges sexual and racial harassment. When asked if she was

aware her brother admitted he "engaged in racially and sexually inappropriate behavior in the workplace" Deen

responded on page 34. "Do humans behave inappropriately? At time, yes. I don't know one person that has not."

The suit also goes on to alleges Deens brother of showing off pornographic pictures and making "sexual jokes" all of

which Deen never admits or denies but instead says, "I know that computer's in the office and anybody can come in an snoop."

The questions continue for another 100 pages before ending in a big fallout with major companies that's why Deen's now

turned to media consultants like P-R Boutique, experts in damage control. "I think she could make a comeback but only if

from here on out she makes the right decisions and right moves...just kind of lay low go back to cooking go

back to writing but stay out of the spotlight and hope for time to pass."

This Houston based agency doesn't represent Deen but says her best deal is to "stay quiet" since eventually

the media will go away but her fans who've taken to our Facebook won't.

"Everybody has their own opinion but as far as ruining somebodies whole life behind it .. it don't think it's

worth it."
